In other new additions this year,our Pathfinder finally decided it was going to start costing real money to maintain as it aged. Faced with about $1500 to replace a catalytic converter (it has two), and knowing these models have a transmission issue that is catastrophic, I decided to replace the gas eating behemoth for a less used,smaller car. So, the Pathfinder is gone and is replaced by this 2004 Nissan Murano. We lost the nav system (who needs it), the entertainment system, and the third row of seats. We gained 5 mpg, 50k miles and all wheel drive. We also lost all the dents and scrapes.
We get to keep the leather, sunroof, heated seats and all that stuff we liked in the old car.
