I love my Pathfinder! It has about 290k on it, and has been a champ since I bought it. However, it does have some issues and I think I need some guidance on how to proceed. First, some of the dash lights, namely the bulbs behind the fuel gauge and temp knobs, are burnt out and its my understanding there is no way to replace those.
That said, the real problem is that reverse all of a sudden stopped working yesterday. The transmission has been solid until now. There has been no slipping or anything like that. Yesterday, I parked while running a quick errand and upon my return a couple of minutes later, no reverse. I am not crazy, I know that my beloved truck isn’t going to run forever, but I’m not sure I’m ready to say goodbye. It is in very good condition otherwise, outside and in. The only potential other repair on the horizon is the timing belt in another 20k or so. Is this transmission issue something I should consider serious? I don’t have a ton of money, but I would think a repair would be much less than a new car in this instance?
If someone has some advice, I’d definitely appreciate it!
