Hello from Merseyside
Hello from Merseyside.
I'm contemplating the purchase of a Pathfinder. It would be for leasure use only and I'm probably looking for a 3 year old low mileage vehicle. I had been looking for a Land Rover 110 station wagon, however thefts and prices are rising and the comfort factor overall is pretty low! As a low mileage driver (@6000 Miles per annum) I've managed to convince SWMBO that a 4x4 would be ideal for days out locally and also the regular trips to visit friends who live within the Cairngorm's National Park.
Previously I owned a chipped and tuned L200 Warrior that did 14mpg, but could fly on the highway and handled exceptionally well when used daily offroad. Unfortunately it had to go when I changed trades a few years ago, as I couldn't justify the continued expense fuel and service costs. Since then, I've owned a couple of new 2wd BMW's, however I'm missing the high seating position of a 4x4.
So far, I've looked at vehicles from Ford, Subaru, Isusu and Mitsubishi, however internet searches keep pushing me back towards a Nissan. I decide to join here, as I dont mind getting my hands dirty, however I do appreciate owners thoughts on any potential reliability issues!
