Nissan Pathfinder

The Nissan Pathfinder is an impressive beast with huge off-road capabilities, delivering upto 403Nm of torque to pull upto 3000kg on weight on its tail.

Pathfinder's engine is a 2.5litre common rail diesel providing 171HP to get an impressive 0-62mph in just 11.8 secs.

Whilst the Pathfinder has a 7 seater cabin for the family and has the ability to go pretty much anywhere off-road, it does have a few drawbacks.
On the main roads you'll notice its not the best road handling and has quite a noisey feel to it, the auto gearbox needs be much smoother. As with most 4x4's the Nissan Pathfinder is quite a thirsty machine only offering upto 28.8mpg (combined)

Nissan Pathfinder Aventura
Excellent car for all round,
Whatever you could ever want gadget wise this is the car you need, extremely practical and very comfortable. Comparing the price in spec between this and a range rover, the range rover is easily twice the price and does not come with the rear reversing camera.
Off road is second to only a Land rover Defender, this car is extremely robust and dealing with the dealership near me is always a pleasure and they get any little problems fixed.
Most of the problems with these are usually sensors which are easily fixed as i have gotten done recently due to some rough of roading which has knocked a level sensor slightly out, but a few hours and it is fixed pritty cheaply compared to other manufacturers.

Basically Good but expensively flawed cooling system
I've owned an 05 "Tspec" for a couple of years now and use it to tow quite a heavy boat. It does the job well and is fairly economical (far better on fuel than my previous Terrano) for a 4x4.

Worst problem I had with it and I think it comes from them having based a 7 seater on the crew cab chassis, is the rotting through of both aluminium heater pipes that feed the rear heater matrix. The design of these is absymal and the cost to replace them horrendous, over 1500 as the body needs to be lifted from the chassis to change them.

Nissan offered me no alternative fix at a more reasonable price so I did it myself, which I shouldn't have had to do.

The other downside of this car is it's notorious 2.5 litre engine which has a tendency to throw a rod with no warning whatsoever.
