Nissan Complaint - Rust Rust Rust Cancer
WALLINGFORD, CONNECTICUT -- To my shock and awe on Monday my mechanic touched the frame of my '94 Pathfinder (4x4) with a hammer and it went right through. I am the original owner, and this car has been treated with care. But my frame looks like Swiss cheese!! Of course I was blamed for not washing my car enough--I wash it all the time, but he kept insisting it was something I had done. I change the oil regularly etc....I have 88 thousand miles on it, original clutch, muffler, brakes, all good, but no frame!!
I am in the process of researching a new vehicle, but one car company that is off my list is Nissan, Toyota, and perhaps all Japanese cars. I am sure Nissan knows of this problem and has kept it to itself.
The rust--if you want to look under your Pathfinder, is beneath the undercoating, so it is not easily visible, to touch it with a hammer and you will have the shock of your life!
