Pathfinder 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

My 2001 Pathfinder has had some major troubles with starting. I have had to wait for a period of more than a half of an hour to get it started and I also had to call a tow truck, (I was out of town), and wait for three hours before I received a jump start, the tow truck driver said that the battery was full. I decided to do some research and found that the 2001 Pathfinder has been recalled in asia for this same problem. Why is nothing being done about this in the states? S I have had the same incident occur three times I am unsure about exact dates of their occurrences.
