1998 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

problem #5

We own a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder and for some reason we have lost our reverse but still have our park, neutral and drive, and 4 wheel drive. We were told that it could be the clutch pack that needs replaced but then after talking to the mechanic that inspected it for us he said that he thought we might be looking at a new transmission. Is there any recalls for this reason for this truck?

I have noticed that at speed of up to 70mph the backend of my truck starts to shimmy back and forth. If continued at that rate of speed the sway gets worse to the point where it feels like the truck is going to flip over. The only way to correct it is to let off the gas. I have noticed that I am not the only one that has had this problem. This seems like a mechanical defect in the design and should be considered by Nissan for a recall.
