1998 Nissan Pathfinder SE from North America
There are probably better cars for your money
Charcoal filter blew up - charcoal all throughout the engine.
Brake pad ejected - brakes went out while driving.
DEATH WOBBLES - common in this generation of Pathfinders, should be recalled, but has not been.
Bad gas mileage.
I loved this car... for a while. The first two years I owned it.
Gas mileage was never great. However, the handling in snow, and the ability to pack it full of camping gear or Ikea furniture was great.
However, at about the 175000 mile mark... things went downhill. FAST. To fix everything that has gone wrong with my vehicle, would cost thousands more than what it is worth (if it were in perfect condition). Gas mileage has dropped to about 10mpg, probably due to charcoal filter.
The transmission blowing was the last straw. I am going to have to ditch it - basically at a loss of what I paid for it. Not a good "older" car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
