(1) no one single event lead up to the failure, the failure occurred over time. (2) exhaust systems "front tube" on both sides of the vehicle cracked and split at the seams. The morning was quite cool, donna stroud was driving to her next mail delivery stop, with the heater running full blast, when she experienced physical symptoms similar to a seizure, clenched fists, curled in wrists, shortness of breath, and dizziness. She had to ask a passerby to call 911 as she was unable to operate her phone with clenched hands. The fire department and an emergency medical team arrived quickly and went right to work the emts assessment revealed an unusual heart rhythm pattern and low blood oxygen levels. She started felling better after several minutes on oxygen but was rushed via helicopter to emergency room where they ran numerous blood test ekgs and X-rays reveled nothing unusual enough to cause the symptoms she experienced. (3) Nissan dealer installed a repair kit to fix this known problem. There is additional information at www.nissanhelp.com/bulletins/Pathfinder/2002/1.htm
