So i guy i knew had a Nissan Pathfidner i think 91 or 93. The thing was kind of rusty, and one day the frame rails literally just broke apart. So now im on craigslist looking at something 4x4 for winter and i'm seeing more pathfinders with "frame issues"
whats the deal with this, must be a common problem right?
anyone here have experience with this issue?

One guy does not constitute an issue.
Any more examples? Maybe posts on Pathfinder boards?

I sold my 94 with around 180k, and before selling I noticed quite a bit of rust starting to form on the frame rails right above the rear axle.
I made sure to mention it to the kid who bought it, but he didn't seem to care.

WD21 Pathfinders had bad frame rust but the bodies held up well.
Yota trucks are the opposite, where the body rusts away but the frames are fine.
And yes, I've seen the Yota truck in two.
