2002 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Review

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 of features. Would not purchase another Nissan product.

Favorite Features

Interior features - Heated seats - Interior lighting Leather seats - large storage area .

Suggested Improvements

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.
