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.

Pathfinder Hybrid

  • 25,000 miles


Nissan cvt transmission issue primarily during acceleration from a stop, the cvt transmission behaves erratically. At times, acceleration seems normal. At others, there is a significant delay which may or may not be followed by a violent "thud" and wild lurch forward of the vehicle. My concern around this issue is two fold; 1) accident avoidance. In the event of a required "fast start" to avert an accident, the significant delay in acceleration followed by the wild lurch, may significant impact the vehicles ability to avert a collision. 2) long-term damage to the engine or complete drive train. It is unclear to me if/how these "thuds" and wild lurches are affecting the mechanical integrity of the vehicle.
