Notes: While there are fewer "radiator leaked into transmission" complaints for the 2008 model year, they are starting to pile up. Buyer beware.

Nissan has extended their radiator warranty on 2005-2010 Pathfinders to 8 years/80,000 miles. However the average mileage for transmission failure for earlier model years is 95,000 miles, which conveniently (for Nissan) is just past the limit of their extended warranty. Owners beware.

2008 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 162014

Pathfinder 8-cyl

  • 88,995 miles


Ses indicator illuminated. Loss of power was noticed. Took vehicle to independent service center where code was read indicating fuel system error. Upon further diagnosis, the fuel pump assembly was recalled. When the selling dealer was notified they said the recall date had expired as of last November and was not covered. The cost to replace the fuel pump assembly was more than $970. We should have been notified of the recall but were not. Since the parts are only available from Nissan, the cost of the parts should be covered even after expiration of the recall especially with the loss of power.
