1995 Nissan Pathfinder SE 3.0L V6 from North America
Great overall SUV
A/C doesn't work.
Power windows slow to go up.
Great overall SUV. When I first purchased it (about 164k miles) it would have issues starting. Turns out the starter was going bad, and one day it didn't start and had to be towed. The starter is a bear to replace and takes a shop 3 hours, and if you do it yourself, 5-6 hours.
After replacing the starter I haven't had any issues. I've owned a couple Jeep Cherokees, and this far surpasses their ability when off-roading.
The engine runs smoother than just about any vehicle I have owned. They are a little underpowered, but during the winter that is a good thing as you don't get tire spin like you would with something with more get up and go.
They are rated at about 14 MPG city, but I average 16 MPG. Best being 16.7, worst being about 14.9 (city only).
As long as you find one that has been taken care of, you will have a vehicle that will get you through anything and start every time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
