2005 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

problem #1

May 212008

Pathfinder 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,655 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder. Due to failures, the contact has only driven the vehicle three times since it was purchased on May 21, 2008. The engine light remains illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they would bypass the engine and shut off the light. On two occasions, the vehicle would not start because it was too hot. The vehicle was purchased with the original stereo system, but, when it stopped working, the dealer replaced it with a demo. The contact took the vehicle to a different mechanic and was informed that the fuel pump sensors were failing and a fuel pump was needed. The current mileage was 47,000 and failure mileage was 46,655. Updated 07/10/08. Upated 07/08/08
