What Pathfinder Year is Most Reliable?

Generations are a good baseline for prediciting reliability, but there will almost always be year-to-year differences. We've calculated a reliability score for each model year within this generation, but we've based that score on how the model year compares to all Nissan model years.

Watch out for the 2005 model year which has the highest PainRank™ score in this generation.
