Which used Nissan Pathfinder 4x4 should I buy?

There's a choice of two engines, but the 4.0 V6 petrol comes only in the most expensive trim and has the highest running costs, so it's a distant second-best to the 2.5-litre diesel.

This comes in a variety of trim levels, and all but the most basic have seven seats. However, as these two rearmost seats are really only suitable for children, there's little point in buying a seven-seat version. Instead, treat it as a go-anywhere five-seat car with a huge boot.

All versions are well equipped, with even the basic S trim (our favourite) getting climate control, six airbags, four electric windows and a CD player. SE added a CD-changer and driver's seat height adjustment, while SVE had leather upholstery and T-spec included sat-nav.

From May 2006, the range was reduced to four trim levels: Trek took over from S, Sport replaced SE, and T-spec became Aventura. However, our favourite remains the most basic model.
