Believe it or not, not everyone buys a big 4x4 to climb kerbs at Tesco. Some people actually need a big strong 4x4.

Buying used

There are a decent number of Pathfinders on the second-hand market, although the Navara pick-up, which is built alongside it, is more popular. Avoid the entry-level models and aim for an SE that comes well equipped for the money. The trim levels were changed in 2006 and again in 2009 so do your research to make sure you know what you're looking at. Avoid the 4.0-litre V6.

Beginning to appear in greater numbers in the Nissan dealer network. Go for a low mileage seven-seat diesel.

Selling

The Pathfinder is practical, easy to use and decent off-road - all good selling points Seven-seat versions will sell quicker and be worth significantly more than five-seat models, while - for most buyers - a diesel and automatic gearbox are the ideal combination. The petrol V6 will be far harder work to sell and won't command a premium over the equivalent diesel.
