Try looking for a 2002 or so Chilkoot. I had one and it comes with a good set of options but keeps away from some of the pricier repair issue that may crop up for the fancy gadgets the higher trim levels have.
I am not sure what the price points are for Fronties, but they are good too so I have heard from those who have them.
Now if you do not need the 4wd capability of these, then take a look at Subaru Foresters, they are as reliable as the Nissan's, ride better, get better fuel economy too. I got rid of the Pathy as I was no longer using its off-road ability and I have saved myself around $1,200 in fuel since September.
