2007 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

problem #4

  • 79,000 miles


(2007 Pathfinder) the fuel sending unit failed and the fuel gauge led me to believe I had gas when in fact I was empty. I ran out of gas in a busy intersection and I was almost hit by a large dump truck. My 5 year old and my 4 month old were in the 2007 Pathfinder. Would if the dump truck driver was not paying attention, me and my children would definitely be dead.
