Notes: There are no warning signs of the same "radiator leaked and killed my transmission" complaints that have plagued previous model years.

For earlier Pathfinder model years (2005-2008), a defect in the radiator allows engine coolant to leak into the transmission. However this defect doesn't appear to affect Pathfinders from 2009 & later. Nissan did include the 2010 model when they extended their radiator warranty on 2005-2010 Pathfinders to 8 years/80,000 miles in response to the transmission defect.

Shattering sunroof. I vented sunroof at first and as I was closing sunroof vent to open sunroof that when the glass cracked and shattered in vehicle. There was no obstruction or manipulation. I only used sunroof controls. Luckily I closed internal sunroof cover in time and only a little glass fell on me. Nissan says they are not liable as there is no proof of faulty sunroof. The cost to repair is approx $800. There are a good amount of complaints online and investigations conducted by local news agencies.
