Hello all. Just sold my Jeep XJ and in need of a new reliable trail rig for camping, light overlanding and some road trips. I've never owned a pathfinder, or any Nissan for that matter. Would ya'll mind weighing in if this would be a good purchase? Any and all critisism is welcome! Hoping to join the pathy fam soon.

I believe the R51 generation Pathfinder is one of the hidden gems out there.
Shares a platform with the last Gen Titan.

Some model years had a high incidence of flawed radiators the '05-10 model years destroying transmissions.. But at this point of age the truck should get a new radiator anyway so thats no biggie IMHO.

The standard 4 liter V6 is just about as quick as the rare (and much more expensive used) V8 4runner.. and definitely spanks the V6 4runner .

Both the transmission and the engines are pretty solid units.
Seats are decent and the switchgear to me feels good.
Also handles much better at speed than any body-on-frame SUV has a right to.
