Review DO NOT BUY THIS VEHICLE! At 93,000 miles we've already replaced u joints, tie rods, brakes (twice!), water pump, driver's side window door motor, O2 sensor, tire pressure sensors, gas tank sensor and now we've got the dreaded radiator/tranmisson issue! That's just the mechanical issues. The cosmetic issues are rust spots all over the back hatch and in the drivers side door well. We've been loyal Nissan customers for over 20 years. This is the 5th one we've owned. That all changes going forward. I am completely, 100% done with Nissan. When you talk to them on the phone and give them the break down of repairs and that you've spent over $6K in repairs, they are totally unsympathetic, even going so far as to say "It's a man made product. Nothing made by man is perfect.". WHAT??? This thing has been slowly falling apart for 8 years, that's not the imperfection of man. That's low quality, poor design and bad construction! Take your excuses to someone you didn't swindle $30K from, Nissan. Buh-bye. I'll give Toyota your love.
