Nissan Pathfinder (05-14)


5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
No comment.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Friends and family think it is a great 4X4, loads of room in the passenger seats and bags of room in the boot, great for camping.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would buy this Pathfinder again; there are not many 4x4 cars that do 28 mpg around town and with a huge boot space for your weekly shopping.

What are you likely to buy next?
Another Nissan.

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
March 2005

To tow a Caravan.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Steering wheel, clutch, gears are smooth. Drives better on the Motor Way, and the engine is not noisy at all when driving at 70 mph with the windows closed. Along the motor way with a 1500kg caravan on the back you have to keep checking that it is there; it pulls a caravan up hill in 3rd gear great. It dose a great 31 mpg with no Caravan on the back and 28 mpg around town, and about 22 mpg towing, (260 miles on a full tank of diesel).

What's it like to park?
Parks with precision with a camera on the back.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
The right hand mirror stopped working and the motor fell of the automatic seat, but my dealer sorted these teething problems out. Also there is no automatic doors that open on the T-spec. Acording to a Nissan booklet and also Parkers Guid, when you walk to the car the doors should open automatic, and also when you walk away from the car the door should lock automatic. But my dealer told me that the T-spec dose not do that, it only locks automatic if you open the door with the fob and you dont get into the car stright a way.

What's most practical about your car?
I have radio, CD, Navigation controls on my steering wheel. It has a reverse camera. Also a safety belt warning bleep.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Automatic wipers, Cruse control, Air conditioning, Fold in mirrors.
