2007 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 062008


  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,500 miles


While at a full stop at a red light, with no vehicles to my right, the rear right side passenger window in my 2007 Nissan Pathfinder suddenly exploded outward. There was a fist sized hole in the window, and entire window was shattered. All glass exited outward and remaining glass was visibly bowed in an outward direction. The dealer (universal city Nissan in los angeles) first claimed that they had never heard of such a failure before, then conceded that there had been a recall for 2004 Nissan maxiima's for sunroof exploding outward. However, the dealer said because they could not "prove" to the factory that the explosion was due to defect, it was not covered by warranty. I believe this is a serious safety issue that should be investigated. If glass is defective and prone to explosive breakage, persons inside or outside of car, or other moving vehicles, could be injured or damaged.
