1990 Nissan Axxess from North America
Timing chain was repaired one year by the previous owner who is my brother in law at a cost of approximately $1000, the next year the timing chain went again and cost us $1000.
This vehicle "ticks", but according to the mechanic this is normal??
The next week the starter went and the cost was another $1000 as they appariently have to lift the motor to get at it.
The only door that works is the driver's side door, the others will not unlock. If you carry passengers, they have to climb over the stick shift, or sit in the back as if they are riding in a cab. This vehicle also loves gas!
I understand that it is a older van and that repairs are sometimes necessary, but this seems to be a very common problem. I would not ever buy an Axxess ever again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

It finally died of a horrible death on the highway - :)

I love this van. I also had a bad starter, and I replaced it myself for 60.00. Oh, I did not have to remove the engine. I bought it brand new in 1990, and the starter was the only problem I ever had, other than buying new tires from time to time. This is the best dual sliding door minivan in the 90's.
