I own Pathfinder 01 for last 6 years. So far it has been a reliable car. No major problems.
Only couple things i don't like about this car.
It has pretty bad gas mialege ( around 17 mpg) for 6 cyl. engine . Also design and room on the back seat.

Do you drive a 2001 NISSAN PATHFINDER?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
