Pathfinder 6-cyl

  • 107,000 miles
I have maintained my car. In June, my Nissan dealership charged me $1500 after I reported a jolt in the transmission. I brought it back 08/10/2012 and they said the transmission needed replaced. I took it to another shop and they said the radiator fluid had leaked into the transmission and ruined the transmission presenting a financial burden and a huge safety issue. Updated 09/13/12
