    My car

    What an underrated car this is.

    It offers a great blend of space, practicality, peformance, economy (38mpg average overall with the manual box) and standard gear (and price) that puts a Discovery to shame.

    It's just what we were looking for.

    What a great alterative to the Land Rover Discovery 3. It's thousands of pounds cheaper, but it is let down by very poor seating. Get into a Discovery 3 and you will see what I mean.

    My car had a noisy turbo after 6300 miles, but it was changed under warranty by Murley Nissan of Warwick. I hope Nissan read these postings, because if my back gets any worse then the Aventura will have to go!

    My car

    I did a lot of research before choosing this vehicle and test drove all the competitors. I only test drove the Nissan to eliminate it from my options as the reviews were not as good as the Discovery or XC90 or even the Landcruiser.

    I found the Pathfinder to be an equal to the Volvo and Discovery (the only negative is slightly higher noise levels) and far better than the Landcruiser.

    I bought a demonstrator for £24k with every conceivable piece of kit on, including the auto box. To get a similiar spec Volvo would have cost £35k or Discovery£40k.

    Those prices made my choice very easy.

    My car

    It is five years and 60,000 miles to the day since I bought my Pathfinder new. It has been totally reliable, having never made an unscheduled visit to the dealership. The only major expense has been the replacement of a suspension bush. I have wax oiled the underside because it was starting to rust. Its thirsty as an automatic and the tax at £460PA is expensive. However it is an extremely good and reliable vehicle of its type.

    What Car say it is a traditional 4x4 and crude compared to civilized 4x4s. I say it delivers and the so called civilized 4x4 are heavy reliant on electronics which many of my Land Rover owning friends will tell you are a major liablity.
