What used Nissan Pathfinder 4x4 will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Nissan Pathfinder 4x4?

Compared with obvious seven-seat rivals such as the Land Rover Discovery and Volvo XC90, the Pathfinder is something of a bargain to buy.

If you ignore the petrol engine, which is expensive to buy and keep going, the running costs on a Pathfinder don't look too bad. Both fuel and insurance costs are on a par with those for the Discovery and, while a diesel XC90 is cheaper to fuel, it's more expensive to insure.

The routine servicing costs also look good - considerably lower than a Discovery's and slightly better than an XC90's. To cap it all, if you need unscheduled work on the car, there's more good news: Warranty Direct says both dealer labour rates and average repair bills for Nissans are at the lower end of the scale.
