Service engine soon light popped on. Read owners manual. Advised to open and re-close gas cap. Did that. Light did not go out. December 10, gas gauge indicated empty. Dte light appeared ------. filled up. Gas gauge didn't move. Then, December 12, 2008 gas gauge suddenly rose to a little over half tank. Dte odometer display shows 78 miles to empty with over half tank. Looked up problem online. Hundreds of people with same problem in Pathfinders and X-terras. No warranty coverage. I have extended warranty. My 2006 Pathfinder has 71K on it. Nissan says $600 to repair. Seems like this is a product/manufacturing defect.
