What's on this page

Nissan Pathfinder

Once hailed as a mini-me version of Nissan's go-anywhere Patrol, the new generation Pathfinder has eschewed any pretence of off-road practicality in its transformation to a regulation medium-sized SUV.

Deemed too soft in its suspension tune at its launch in 2013, the latest version of the Pathfinder has been modified to provide a ride and handling package more suited to Australia's bumpy roads than America's long highways. Now available with an updated 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine, AEB, blind spot warning and rear cross traffic alert, it's also offered as a seven seater.

Current prices range from $44,240 to $70,140 for the Pathfinder ST (2WD) and Pathfinder TI Hybrid (4WD).

Nissan Pathfinder Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Pathfinder here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Should we replace our Holden Commodore with a Subaru Outback?

    A car with a little extra ground clearance is great for camping as it often allows you to get a little farther away from the masses in their caravans who tend to huddle around the shower block at bush campsites.

    The Subaru Outback is a good, solid choice and if you can find an independent workshop to service it, you’ll avoid the cost of dealership prices. And you’re right, the all-wheel-drive would be great for gravel roads. Another vehicle to look at would be a late-model Ford territory diesel which is big and clever inside and has the option of all-wheel-drive. The diesel engine is a plus on the bush where that fuel is more readily available (in really remote areas) and gives you more range for big holidays in the mulga.

    Don’t rule out things like the Mitsubishi Pajero, either, which won’t be as around-town friendly, but is a proven quantity and is absolutely tremendous off-road. The same goes for a Toyota Prado or Nissan Pathfinder prior to the current model (which is a bit less hard-core adventure).

  • What are the best 7-seat SUV's?

    A better option for someone with a tribe to transport would be a peoplemover, such as the Kia Carnival, Hyundai iMax, or VW Transporter. They’re made for that purpose and much more practical than an SUV.

  • Failed clutch in 2006 Nissan Pathfinder

    I would doubt that he has any claim; clutches are considered a wear and tear item and not covered by warranty.

  • Will a Nissan Pathfinder tow a horse float?
