Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: The 2005-2007 Pathfinder appears to have a widespread defect where coolant leaks into the transmission, causing transmission failure around 90,000 miles. Repair costs are typically upwards of $3,500.

According to the New York Times & a class action lawsuit, the defect actually extends through 2010 model year. More info here.

Pathfinder 6-cyl

  • 84,000 miles


Transmission had begun to slip while transitioning to and from gears(no matter the speed).when putting vehicle into gear there would be this horrible "jerk", as if the transmission or engine were about to fall out!!! vehicle would not warm up while in park. Once the vehicle was turned off it would only start back up if the "ECU fuse" were replaced. Took vehicle to transmission specialist and he stated that the radiator had been leaking into the transmission!! this issue is now subject to electrical issues!!! his recommendations, a new or rebuilt transmission. I have read reviews were someone has even had their transmissin replaced only to have the same issues or similar in nature. Nissan is aware of the problem and is not utilizing an appropriate recall.
