Engine blew out at 90,000 miles. Had to be replaced.
Transmission had to be rebuilt twice.
Fuse box melted.
Striping around windshield rotted away.
Driver side windshield wiper flew off car into parts unknown during a violent rainstorm on a highway.
CV boots have rotted.
Wheel bearing went bad.
Carburetor had to be replaced as there is no one left alive who has any idea how to rebuild one.
Fuel filter went bad.
Catalytic Pre-Converter went bad. Boy that was a fun one to fix. When it went bad exhaust backed up and blew out a gasket and broke a bolt off in the engine.
Floorboard is rotting away.
Had an electrical short, but I traced it to the brake light and fixed it.
The headlights don't sit down flat anymore. One sits a little higher than the other when they are turned off.
The heater/AC no longer works without a loud, horrifying, grinding noise.
Crank Arm Sensor went bad and that one drove me nuts trying to figure out what it was.
Replaced the shocks and struts. Suspension is still a joke.
Heat shield around the catalytic converter has half melted away causing the car to make a loud banging sound when I drive around which now officially makes me white trash.
Distributer cap split.
Thermostat stuck shut.
Folks the list goes on and on.
I have to be honest. This car is seriously old so these problems are to be expected. I didn't expect, however, to lose an engine at 90,000 miles. Over all I really hate this car, but it's so old I can't fault Nissan. I'm sure they had no intention of anyone actually still driving these cars more than ten years after they were made. For those who don't know better let me put it like this, the Pulsar is Nissan's version of the Ford Escort. In other words, if someone tries to sell you one run far in the other direction. Having said that I must admit Nissan does make good cars and I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Nissan in the future. I'll just stay clear of all their Pulsar/Sentra type cars. I think I'm going to paint flames down the side of my Pulsar and put a big skull on the hood because "camp value" is the only value this car will ever have.
