I just purchased my first Pathfinder (first Nissan as well) - a used 2002 SE 4WD w/ green exterior and tan interior - about a month ago. So far, I like it waaaaaaaay more than the constantly breaking and reliably unreliable 2002 Saturn VUE I traded in.
We took it for our first road trip this past weekend, a short weekend jaunt up to Ventura and then inland through Ohai, Santa Paula, and Filmore before returning to Pasadena. We did not have the opportunity to take it off road at all, but it travelled very well as a comfortable and roomy highway car. The somewhat poor fuel economy I normally experience around town expanded dramatically, netting me an additional 30 or 40 miles on this tank of gas.
So far, it's a great car. Hopefully, it will remain so.

#102 of 122 '97 Pathfinder - PARTING OUT
Mar 25, 2005 (3:56 pm)
Hello All! I've read this thread for a while, but, this is my first post. I own a green '97 Pathfinder with front end damage, and I'm looking to part it out. It's been an exceptional truck, but, it's time to move on. There are plenty of good parts to be had. It's only got 85K on the drivetrain (w/ a manual transmission). I'm looking to part it out, but, I'd also consider selling it on the whole.

Hi, I own a 2001 LE 3.5 Pathfinder. I purchased my Pathfinder in July 2002 Silver w/Black Leather. Iti s now April 2005. I have 94,000 miles. (Yes) I replaced the tires that came with my truck with Michelin Tires, I still have the same tires on my truck from day one. My (PATH) provides a smooth EXCELLENT ride compared to the emotional roller coaster you get with a Ford Explorer. I drive to New York 4x a year and to Chicago once a year............in between Virginia, Tennessee, Florida and Texas. (Love to travel). Have faith in your purchase the Path is alot stonger/sturdy & reiable than the look (My path name is (JIGGA) I am a Jay-z fan...............this is where the name is generated from. Periodic Oil changes and regular>>>>>Rotate/Balance & Alignment is allI have done to my Path. Rugular maintence as scheduled by Nissan per milege requirements 30,60,90 etc.
#104 of 122 95 Pathfinder

My name is Dave from Mass and I just purchased my 4th Nissan, a 95 Pathfinder as my son's first car. I now own a 98 Altima SE, 99 Quest SE and an 01 Sentra SE. The latest addition to our Nissan family is an XE 4x4 with 102,000 miles and is in excellent condition. The interior is very clean with no rips or tears. After reading all these forums on the Pathfinder, I know I made a good choice for a dependable vehicle. Does anyone know if the engine is an interference or not? I know the timing belt is supposed to be changed at 105,000 and just wondering if owners have gone many miles past that. Also, I'm getting a strange humming/static sound on occasion from the door speaker in both the Path and the Altima. Any thoughts?

#107 of 122 1989 pathfinder timing question
Jul 07, 2005 (6:05 am)
I am trying to help neighbor adjust timing on his 6 cylinder pathfinder. I cannot see the marks on the crank when the inductive pick up is on the number one plug. I am goign to mark the notches with chalk to make it easier to see. I was wondering if a wire needs disconnected or something if timing is computer controlled. I do not have a book on it nor does he.

I'm mainly a muscle car kind of guy my last vehicle purchase was a 1967 Cougar, this was a restoration project.
I ran across a 1995 XE Pathfinder that needs a transmission 5 speed, and a windshield.
It has over 200,000 but the rest of the vehicle is in great shape, timing belt was changed 150,000 and the oil change religiously.
Interior is good no rips. tires are new, batt is new, AC works, every things to be in good shape.
Paint job is good some real small dings in the door but no chips.
I paid 1000.00, is this a good deal?
Is there weak areas in this particular year and model of vehicle?
