205 k and still going strong.

Had a tuneup on the the old gal While they were at it, I wanted a compression check done.. a new engine is around 175. Good comes in around 150. My baby girl came in at 149 at 205k.. WOW.. I’ve got another 100k before possible overhaul. Keep the fluids fresh and you can’t go wrong..


Over 150k miles and still loving it

We have relied on this truck for vacations, shopping, work, and off roaring. The kids have banged it up a bit while they were young but I still love driving it. I compare the new trucks to this and they all come up short. I will keep it for as long as I can or until the cost of repairs exceeded the cost of a new one and that should be a while. I have the blue color and the kids named her Dori.


14 Years Of Reliable Service

Bought our 2003 Pathfinder Chilkoot edition in 2006 with 80,000 KM's as a lease return. Quality SUV made in Japan. It was an awesome SUV. Did regular maintenance but nothing major failed. About 4-5 years ago we had the Struts & Shocks done (Normal Wear & Tear) as it would dangerously rock like a boat during highway driving. Drove like a new vehicle after that. It liked to eat about 1-2 liters of oil between oil changes. So I made sure to keep it topped up. Okay on gas but got worse if you were heavy on the throttle. We had so many reliable, comfortable family road trips in this SUV. The entire exhaust system was factory original. Other than the catalytic converters, I couldn't believe it was still working fine after 17 years. Sadly, being 17 years old It was starting to show it's age and we were looking at more maintenance. Also, rust was starting to develop over the rear wheel wells. Just traded it in on a new 2020 Toyota Tacoma. Hopefully this will be as dependable.
