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.

Pathfinder 6-cyl

Popping and/or cracking noise that is very similar to service bulletin no.: ntb-10-072A ( NHTSA id number: 10034904). It only occurs when turning the wheel to the left or right at very low speeds, typically backing out or pull into a parking space or garage. Had repair performed on 11/2/2013 related to the referenced service bulletin (above) and problem has continued.

problem #1

Apr 162013

Pathfinder 6-cyl

  • 52,000 miles
I recently found out that the shock/strut assembly on my vehicle was faulty resulting in a major overhaul of the rear oe spectrum shock and front oe spectrum strut in the amount of $850. This has caused my wheels to "cup" which is resulting in a need for a complete set of new tires.
