What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2003 Nissan Pathfinder

2003 Nissan Pathfinder Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2003 4dr SUV 240-horsepower 3.5L V6
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
16MPG city, 19-20 MPG highway leaves much to be desired. Changing the spark plugs every 100,000km (well ahead of the suggested interval) makes a large difference, but economy is still lacking. see full Nissan Pathfinder review
2003 4dr SUV 240-horsepower 3.5L V6
4-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
13-14 mpg is real in city conditions because of 4 speed auto. see full Nissan Pathfinder review
2002 4dr SUV 240-horsepower 3.5L V6
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Compared to more fuel efficient SUVs, it is rather low. But is OK for what it is. see full Nissan Pathfinder review
2002 4dr SUV 240-horsepower 3.5L V6
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
What can you say--it's powerful, heavy and not very efficient by todays standards. Still given my current millage of 10,000 Km/year, it's not a good enough reason to trade the vehicle. see full Nissan Pathfinder review
