I haven't found the costs of most of my tyres, a set of brake discs, and a few other things yet (see grand total).

How come you got through 4 clutches?

 

Excellent post, by the way. :thumbs:

 

My personal belief is that there was something wrong with the setup on clutches 1 and 2 (used mainly for motorway driving only; absolutely no track use). The clutch pedal had an abnormal feeling (as it did with the Nismo, but that was to be expected). I complained, but to no avail. Clutch 4 feels completely normal, and has been used on a driver training day and the Nordschleife; it's still going strong.

The service plan was worthwhile (interest free and covered expensive platinum spark plugs and labour for replacement).

Yikes!!! :headhurt::headhurt::headhurt::headhurt:

 

Excellent post - but erm erm now I am wondering if I should stick with my Pathfinder after all?

 

£17,000 on petrol alone - ooer I feel a bit dizzy.

 

Costs me about £4.5K on diesel a year which is bad enough I suppose?(34K miles on average - even though I am no 54K next week)

 

Oh stuff it if I can just scrape the cash together and keep it - think its gonna have to be my lst car ever - just sell the house and live in the car!

 

I hope you keep it after all those bills ? :D

 

Enjoy it......

Just go back from taking it to Riga. Still going strong, although the suspension is getting a little squeaky.

Great post! Sorry I got here so late...

 

Petrol is approx 30% of your expenditure, ouch!

 

However that's excellent value for 4 years, it really is.
