WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: NISSAN PULSAR (2013-2016)
Early versions of the Pulsar with the CVT transmission had a problem with random stalling, which had to be fixed at a Nissan dealership with a reflash of the on-board computer.
When inspecting any Pulsar, check that the brake lights work. A batch of iffy switches that control the brake lights were the problem, but any car with no brake lights is dangerous, particularly in traffic.
This model Pulsar was also the subject of a few recalls including a need to change one of the sensors that was meant to trigger the air-bags.
There was also a recall to change a starter button which could jam and confuse the computer into shutting the car down, and another to check for a potential fuel leak.
