Good car

We upgraded from a hatchback to this super spacious SUV. Though it doesn't have the power or stability of a BMW which we owned earlier this is a decent SUV with all the features you dont get on a top tier SUV like rovers. The interiors are super luxurious and the tech is great with the dual screen on the back seats, very good to keep toddlers/young kids happy.

Very reliable

Driving experience is amazing with heaps of clearance off the road when going 4x4. Can handle a heap of weight, great for towing, lots of leg room for 5 adults. Although fuel economy isnt the best it makes up with a comfortable driving experience. Has great stereo system, lots of storage space in the boot.

Good car

Best Car EVER

The drive it perfect, vehicle is a little heavy but with that much weight im not surprised.

It is a silent car, very spacious, can easily sit 7 adults even the last 2 seats, lots of legroom and i love that the middle seats move back and forward for comfort.

It cost me around $80 to $100 for a fuel tank of 98 petrol. Just depends on the price and it last me at least 10 days and i travel 50km Monday to Friday.

Best car I've ever owned

More room and nicer trim than the X-Trail. I got the ST-L version with addon pack giving many extras including Bose sound system with 13 speakers. It's very quiet and I won't ever be able to drive a car without surround cameras again. The only downside is the unusual tyres which seem to be in limited stock at most places.

Perfect Family Car

I really love the quiet whilst driving. 7 adult seats up and still plenty of boot space we are a family of 5. Downsize is fuel consumption but other than that perfect family car. Getting about 550km to a tank. Would like the time accessible whilst navi is on. Love,Love,Love Show details

Perfect family car

Drives very smoothly, good performance, handles well, spacious, very reliable and quit engine with lots of extras, enterrior is nice and comfortable. Not all models come with navigation system phone connectivity not very reliable with android. However, very recommended family seven seater family car. However boot is not big if you decide to use the back foldable seats.

Excellent practical design

Incredible practically with rear hatch opening options. Very quiet and comfortable. Looks great 14 year old 2003 model. Only negatives are rear drum brakes and thirsty underpowered V6. Low first gear is good for off road and traffic light wins but lacks top end grunt. My perfect version will have a disc brake rear end and turbo diesel. Would like to convert this car and keep it for towing van around Australia. Love the interior design too. I can camp in it too. Overall love the Pathfinder R50. But not the later models. I did previously by a new one in 2002 and always missed it once sold . Happy now I have another one.

Nice comfy car

Ww recently bought a pathfinder, it's a big comfortable car. The boot with all the 7 seats up is quite small so not ideal for prams or a big grocery shop, car is also heavy on fuel consumption. Dash catches dust like nothing else, as does the carpet, it just never seems to stay clean for long. But other than that the car is pretty good.

Great Family car

The new Nissan Pathfinder is defiantly a cut about the rest in its range! 7 seats leather TVs for the kids Nav man sun roof the list goes on and on I would highly recommend this family SUV to everyone we have never had a problem drives like a dream! 800 Ks to a tank of petrol so low running cost. Leg room is a must when you have kids and there is so much!!

Good Family Car

This is great with the video players in the back for the kids. Has power to get you out of trouble if you need it. Lots of space. Just needs a back window to open to fit bikes in other wise its perfect. My favourite part is having quiet kids in the back while im driving :)

Plenty of Room

Never thought I would own a Nissan as I have always prefered European cars. Although the Pathfinder doesn't have some of the gimmicks like Infotainment it more than makes with comfort and easy driveability.

There is plenty of room for 4 adults and up to 3 little ones. The kids love the rear air-con and the sun roof of course.

Good decision

Bought the vehicle brand new late 2015 and have racked up over 70,000 un-troubled, extremely comfortable, K's in 18 months. Good on fuel and has power to burn when needed. Tows a 2300 kg caravan with ease and still gets good consumption figures.Would recommend for those who want 4WD when necessary but still have the look of a car not a cumbersome bigger sized vehicle.....

Perfect family car

It is perfect family car and it is a really a good driving experience . The seven seater has enough leg room at the back and the Bose speakers are really neat. The only downside is the fuel consumption. the TO model has all features included and it is value for money at the price advertised.

Fast

Lowered my pathfinder and placed 22 rims and always placed in sport mode. Drives like a car! Downside is, need to change tyres with only 50k's unlike with my sportage it has 100k odo (driven everyday by wife) till now tyres still intact. Don't ever use continental factory supplied tyres. Better with kumho!

Love it

Can't recommend this car enough. Roomy interior, massive boot space and easy access to the rear seats.

The kids love the climate control in the rear and the inbuilt entertainment system. The heated/cooled seats for summer/winter make long driving so much more comfortable.

Our camping trips are so much easier now.

Be careful

Comfort and space is great, economy is great (we have the hybrid version); however when it comes to the issue with the 'transmission' 'cvt' and maybe the internal clutch system - well I have no words - 1 1/2 years in and I think its been back at the dealer more than we have driven it - they are still trying to find the problem of the jerking and shuddering, and we are running out of patience. We know we are not the only ones - this seems to be a problem world wide. Problem doesn't show up until about 4k on a new car and on a new transmission (which they have done for us). Do your homework first, probably better off with a second hand one that you can test drive for a week to see if its one of the unlucky ones! Good luck!

Couch on wheels

As I said it is a couch on wheels, big, spacious and has plenty of room for all our boys and pieces. You can't tell if you are in a car, smooth driving, fabulous interior only complain is the amount of fuel it consumes. Oh I forgot the dual climate control.

2012 Nissan Pathfinder Ti Very immpressive , so confortable , lovely to drive very economical for qu

Driving experience excellent, handles well, very little engine and wind noise a pleasure to drive.

The only dislike is the gauges and speedo are hard to see during the day with sun glasses on, night time very good, Dash board excellent, plenty of leg room, love the reversing camera and Hi Fi Sound system

Reliability excellent, running costs 9 to 10 litres per 100 kilometers range 750 until warning light comes, very economical for such a large vehicle,

Plenty of power and torque to tow my 2 tonne boat

Nissan Pathfinder ST 2001/02

Bought new in 2001, used for 5 years occasionally towing 15ft caravan, lovely drive , easy towing. It is so comfortable and nice to drive , now 2017 and 66K later I would not swap it. Its in great condition and the 4WD options are so easy to use. It is a true off-road vehicle. Still in original condition, except for tyres and battery, Serviced once per year.No breakdowns ,no faults,so reliable, paintwork good, Always garaged.

I get 7km/L around town, 8/9Km/L country .(not towing) Towing various from 5km/L to 6.5Km/L depending on conditions.

I think I will keep it for the very foreseeable future.

7 seater to suit adult sized people

Easy to drive has plenty of power but hard to park. Can't see where the bonnet ends and there are quite a few blind spots.

Loads of room inside in the middle row and plenty of room for adults in back row. Comfortable seats for driving long distances

Petrol usage is 8.8km/l not bad for such a large car.

All standard accessories that are easy to use

TI Pathfinder Transmission problems

This is my first new Nissan after being a Toyota customer for more than 10 years. Unfortunately the car developed transmission vibration and after some research I am not the only one. The vehicle started having this issue at 5K and now after many times back to the dealer at 28K the transition is getting changed. As I understand many cars had the transmission changed more than once with the fault coming back. This is well know issue to Nissan I am sure but they are playing very low. I hope the transmission change will fix the issue in my case otherwise I will become their worst nightmare.
