sewebster Posted November 7, 2011 Share Posted November 7, 2011 My '98 Pathfinder (196,000 Chicago miles) was taken to the dealer in April 2011 when I spotted the recall recommendation on the NHTSB website. The dealer wasn't even aware of this specific recall at that moment. Still, they looked, and confirmed it was a real recall. So, off I go in a loaner/rental 2011 Nissan Rogue, at Nissan expense. Repeated calls to Nissan throughout the summer resulted in no information on the PF's status. Well, here it is November 2011. (6 months have passed.) Just got a call from Nissan's agent. They said the car is not repairable and they were preparing a buyback offer. I checked the Kelly Bluebook for value and it came up around $1800-2000 USD. However, they offered $4200 USD. And we've been driving the Rogue the whole time. All in all, not a bad deal ! Still, I'm now minus a much-needed vehicle, and what can you get for $4200 ? Maybe you can buy another R50 that needs to go in for the recall for $2000 and get another $4200 for it? If you do this for all 195000 pathfinders being recalled, you could earn over $200 million.
