RACK AND PINION

2008 Nissan Pathfinder • 68,000 miles

Hello - I have a 2008 Pathfinder, LE V6. The Rack and Pinion steering has failed. The truck has 68,000 miles on it.

Is this normal?

Neither normal nor abnormal. There are many different ways it can fail from noises, roughness and binding, and intermittent lack of power assist, especially when cold. The most common failure is a leak.

The good news is there are rebuilt assemblies available from aftermarket companies that do a real good job of improving the high-failure items, and they're very inexpensive. Rebuilt racks often cost around $150.00, about one third of the price for a new one from the dealer.
