I had a 98 version. Lovely car to drive and did everything I ask of it. However it had a drinking problem. I found it was not hard to get to do 19L/100. The best I ever did was 10L/100 creepping along at 80 to 85 Km per hour.

Hey Sparky, you are not wrong,,,, i have a loan car from a nissan dealership at the moment, 1999 model Pathfinder ,no idea whats under the bonnet and i dont care, getting worse fuel consumpion than my 4,2 tdi GU. I get about 28mpg from my gu and i reckon i'm getting about 22mpg at 120 ks. If you drop back to 100kph, it increases to about 25mpg. Its auto and its a shocker.. i cant imaging towing with type of vehicle, you would end up with white knuckles and a thin wallet at the end of the day!!!!

I tow an offroad trailer with my 99 Pathy and average 16 to 17 :trs per 100kms. Yes, for the size of the Pathy it is thirsty if driven hard - but then again most vehicles have something that you would rather change - for the Pathy it would be the fuel consumption - although it can be managed by learning the best driving style / speed.

Sparky, try the Pathfinders Club of Australia Inc forum for everything you ever wanted (or didn't want) to know about the Pathfinder. Many people drop in to discuss potential purchases - and are given an honest account of the strengths and weaknesses of the vehicle
