Hudson, are you talking about the 1988-1989 2 Door nissan Pathfinder, where nissan did not sell the 2 door any more, only the 4 door??!
Also speaking of American Market penetration, Peugeot of France is a well established car manufaturer, yet they had trouble in the US market and had to quit, so did Rover whose cars were then based on Honda civic/accord and legend. Where as Hodna thrived and profited, rover cars based on same mechanicals did not. In a nut shell getting into the americal market is not a cakewalk. Chinese manufacturers should still try and failure should not be something to be ashamed off, but used as a learning curve for a better next time
