2006 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 122006

Pathfinder 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


I got this vehicle from Nissan dealership on 3-11-2006. This dealership did fraud. First of all they told me that the vehicle had no miles on it but it did had miles on it and plenty of them. They gave me the wrong car. The car they showed me that I was going to received is not the car I received. When I contact the dealership they said it was too late. This dealership is a complete liar. I don't understand how it gets business in the first place. I want to cancel the purchase of this car.
