I was the owner of a 94 Pathfinder that
I recently sold. There are a few
things that potential buyers should be
aware of. The automatic transmissions
on these vehicles fail earlier than
expected on these vehicles. Nissan is
aware of this problem and has even
issued a service bulletin about it, but
no recall. The problem is that the
transmission cooler clogs up with
debris and causes the transmission to
overheat and fail to the tune of a
$2800 rebuild. Second is the exhaust
manifolds overheat and crack and or
break away from the engine block.
Other than that the Pathfinder is fun
to drive and quite reliable.
