Summary:

Diesel engines are a lot better now compared before

Faults:

This pick-up is slow, and it had a hard time overtaking slow vehicles on the road when it went out of town.

The old radio doesn't work, but later replaced with a stereo from a Ford Lynx.

On the way to Baguio, the air-con malfunctioned but was fixed right away.

The taillight broke, but was fixed within the day.

Wheel misaligned.

General Comments:

This is not the US version of the Pathfinder, it is the local version of the Pathfinder, which is a 4x4 pick-up.

It is slow and has a hard time accelerating, but is very dependable.

It is a big-time smoke belcher, and I remember one time in Kalayaan Avenue on the way home being caught by authorities for emission testing, and we failed it so we had to do everything to solve the problem.

The back seat is uncomfortable for 3 persons, but the front row is okay.

I would say that diesel engines are a lot better now, and have better performance.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
