When we first purchased the 1990
Pathfinder it was the most attractive
SUV on the market. 155,000 miles and 4
transmissions later, I can comfortably
say that we bought the lemon in the
group. Though I have always enjoyed
the trucks rugged exterior styling, the
problems ranging from transmission to
ac failure have made repairs a true
hassle and financial burden.
Underpowered and unreliable, the 1990
Pathfinder was a perfect first attempt
at a 4-door suv with car-like
The high pitched whine when attempting
to merge into traffic.
AC, transmission, power...all of these
have been fixed by now.
