I am not a newbie to Nissan's but I have not had a Pathfinder for about two years and was wondering what others think are the best years are for purchasing a Pathfinder. I have owned about 12 (+ or -) Nissan's including two 720 pickups, about 7 or 8 Hardbody trucks (including the 1994 in the attached pic that I own now), and several Pathfinders including a 1987 two door style and a 1994 4-door XE. I am looking for a little of everything including power, overall reliability, and towing ability (I trailer a 2500 pound Samurai to off-road events several times a year). Off-road abilities are also important, but for the most part it will be my anound town daily driver and tow rig. My 1994 Nissan truck has only the 2.4 liter in it with a 5-speed and it actually tows very well, except up hills & mountains so anything will be a power improvement. Whichever Pathfinder I purchase with definately be the SE model with the LSD rear end and better gearing.
Thanks for any insight and recomendations you can give.
