Hard-working car that needs a little TLC

I love the way my car drives and rides and looks is comfortable and has all the features that I love. It was in a minor accident and since then I have had a number of problems. Currently the power steering is going out the service engine light is on it leaks oil it leaks windshield wiper fluid. We had to replace the starter because the starter was going bad. The passenger airbag light comes on.

Paint peeling problem pathfinder.

I like the vehicle but the paint is peeling off. I contacted Nissan, but they said they haven't had any complaints about the paint. However if you look on line there are lots of people who post comments about the paint peeling. I have had no major issues with anything mechanical.

The vehicle that runs great with high miles.

The problem I have had is the rocker arms have gone out twice. It is a great family vehicle. It has over 200k miles and it still runs the same as it did the day we drove it off the lot. It is great for me to transport my sons and friends to there sporting events.
