2002 Nissan Pathfinder LE
By effort12 on
2002 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Purchased in 2005 with 30K mileage. 110K miles currently.
Complaints - Dreadful fuel economy and requires premium.
Defective exhaust manifold . Hairline cracks create increasingly noisy engine
and allow exhaust fumes to leak into interior. Replacement manifold plus installation is almost $4K. Manufacturer claims this not a defect but is just normal wear and tear.
Front end vibration when brakes are applied.
Defective 6 disc cd changer quit functioning with 6 discs inside. Estimates for repair $3-400.
Interior - Very comfortable with nice assortment
Would not purchase another Nissan product.
Interior features - Heated seats - Interior lighting
Leather seats - large storage area .
Nissans reluctance to acknowledge a serious manufacturing defect such as exhaust manifold cracks is surprising and potentially dangerous. This will prevent me from purchasing or reccomending another Nissan product.
