Terrific value by DB in Hot Springs on 03/19/2009. Trim: 1992 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: The maunual transmission needed bearings at 90K miles, so I thought I had made a bad choice. Since then, twelve years ownership, I really appreciate the solid reliability. I have spent very, very little on repairs over-all and it runs great. Bullet-proof engine. Drove across the country last summer without thinking twice. The AC still works fine, the upholstery is in great shape. I can get 23-25 MPG highway if I'm careful. Easily carries 1000 pounds cargo. I've had no rust problems. Ride is firm, cornering and handling surprisingly stable. Rear seating is roomy. Power windows and door locks still work well. Hardly any squeaks or rattles. Good off-road.
Cons: There are times when I wish it had more power, but not often, I prefer better fuel economy (if I watch how I drive) over a big engine. The cruise control is not great, but on level ground is better than nothing. I wish it had a retractable sunroof, like the Toyota, instead of the removable panel, but at least the panel is less likely to fail at this age. I will probably have to repair the exhaust manifolds in a year or two - a common problem for this model.
Overall review: I love it! 17 years old, 170K miles, still looks and runs great. Quality materials, intelligent design. Rugged and well-built.

One of the best SUV's out there by Big Jim Swade on 06/03/2005. Trim: 1992 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Bullet proof design, a great off road vehicle.
Cons: I wish I found one with leather seats
Overall review: A great vehicle. Look for one with leather seats, rear disk brakes, manual transmission, sports package/with locking rear differintial and make sure it has the 4.67/1 rear end ratio. The 4.37/1 final drive just seems underpowered.

The Perfect Pathfinder by Moondog from Texas on 09/23/2002. Trim: 1992 Nissan Pathfinder XE 2WD, Owned 10 years.
Pros: This by far has been the best vehicle I have ever had. It is reliable and I have had very few problems.Any of the problems have been minor and I've had only because of high mileage and wear and tear.It is roomy,drives well and is very dependable!
Cons: The spare tire rack on the back rusted very early!
Overall review: Excellent,dependable,reliable vehicle! I don't mind that it is 10 years old..I will drive it until it dies and then I will purchase another Nissan!
