1998 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

My vehicle has 93,000 miles, has seen mostly city 2x4 usage, snow 4x4 high, and little 4x4 low usage. I've owned it for 60,000 of the miles and purchased it 2000 with few needed repairs. It has a great look to it, and 4wd mode is great in snow. The engine is a bit underpowered compared to other SUV's, but its a comfortable ride. Gas mileage is 16-18 mpg. Suddenly this vehicle seems to be falling apart. This year, I've had to completely replace both muffler systems ($700), brakes ($120 ceramic), rotors ($300), right and left sway bar links ($240), struts, and mounts (estimate $800), and now my transmission (estimate $2800). I'm now looking for a new car. When this car goes bad, its bad.

Favorite Features

Great styling, and comfortable interior.

Suggested Improvements

make exhaust system in aluminum so it doesn't rust out. I've had to replace 2x over 6 years.
