It's been a miserable process. I had my car inspected in 2010 by independent mechanic because nissan would not work on the right wheel well . The mechanic repair right strut and rusted wheel well along with damage to master cylinder . In 2010 and 2011 a nissan dealership told me my car was good to go. After. Found out about the recall I brought it in for inspection and was told my car was good and a hour later a second call that it needed to be sprayed then the next day that i was told my car is not drivable. The third day a notice was sent to Mosley to Handel my case . Then on the forth day I'm told the nissan will repair the car by addng a brace. It's been very frustration . I need to be reimbursed for the work Front driver side strut, housing and bearings were destroyed,I put into repairing the before and after the recall.nissan please Handel this concern or I will not be purchasing a car again . Have owed 4 nissan since the 90s

11/6/11 I too was told the car was not repairable and that they wanted to buy back the pathfinder. The vehicle is a dealership, who says they have at least 10 pathfinders on their lot that have been there since August waiting for the "buy back". Will Nissau reimbursement me for insurance and registration fees while I'm unable to use the vehicle. I feel they should.

I BOUGHT MY PATHFINDER OUT OF NEW JERSEY,FOUND IT TO BE A GREAT UTILITY VEHICLE.TOOK IT TO DEALER ABOUT7 WKS AGO,THEY SAID RUST WAS TOO BAD AND IT COULD NOT BE FIXED AND THAT THEY WOULD BUY IT BACK. I DID ALL PAPER WORK AS REQUIRED BUT AS OF TODAY HAVE NOT HEARD ANYTHING.

Do you drive a 1999 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.
