2013 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

problem #3

Mar 212014


  • 17,000 miles


When I attempt to drive the vehicle after a full stop, or when proceeding at a slow rate of speed, by applying pressure to the gas pedal, the car does not move. I have to lift my foot and reapply pressure to get the car to move forward. Nissan has changed the brake sensor, however, that made the problem worse.

  • 1,400 miles
The contact owns a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. The contact stated that the vehicle became resistant to acceleration attempts as she attempted to accelerate from a traffic stop. The contact noticed that the front driver's side tire had become deflated. The vehicle was later towed to the dealer and the contact was informed that the entire under-carriage an investigator would be sent to further access the failure because a component had fractured under the vehicle, causing the rim to become shredded and the brake lines to fail. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was contacted and an investigation was pending. The failure and current mileages were approximately 1,400.
