The type of recall could greatly impact the resale value of the vehicle. Those that research before they buy will most likely ask much lower than the blue book value based on the type of recall.

Do you drive a 2010 NISSAN PATHFINDER?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
