my right headlight is not working on my 92 path finder the only one that works is the left
I paid $300 bucks for a 92 SE 4x4 3.0 and have beat it mercilesly as a toy for my property, Everything worked on it before I turned it over in my creek, even then it started and I drove it back to the house. 227K on odometer. I feel like I stole it as it is extreemly rugged and flies off of my homemade ramp like it has wings, I have had it over 3 feet in the air and it just takes it. I am putt...
overall a reliable truck at 217,800 i would never buy anything but a nissan from now on
