will never buy another nissan!

2005 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Bought my '05 pathfinder used in 2010 with 75K miles thinking I was getting a great used vehicle with excellent reliability.
What ensued was a series of headaches that prompted me to trade it (at a loss) only 1.5 years later.
I replaced the radiator only 8 months into ownership because it was leaking to prevent transmission problem that seemed prevalent among owners.
Within 6 months, I noticed transmission making funny shifts and acting awkward.
At the same time, CV joint deterioriated on front driveshaft (another common complaint) resulting in terrible roaring noise during high speed travel.
Replaced both for $1300.
Traded today to avoid problem..Get rid of as soon as possible!!
Bose stereo and engine
radiator/transmission, CV joints on driveshaft(s), and electrical components
