The contact owns a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder. The contact stated that the front and rear wheels made an abnormal noise. Also, the rear tires were prematurely worn. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for a front and rear alignment, but the failure continued. The suspension was unstable in the front and rear of the vehicle. The vehicle was also taken to two other independent repair shops for further diagnostic testing. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was not available.

Multiple issues with this SUV had to have rear shock/strut replaced. Instrument cluster panel has been replaced. Passenger side air bag comes on when person is sitting there. Cvt transmission problems. The SUV has been in the shop on multiple occasions for each issue the transmission issue has been in the shop 6 plus times and I just picked up the 2014 Pathfinder 8-16-2016 and was told and have it on my invoice that the service tech drove the SUV and feels the transmission slipping or skipping but there is nothing they can do Nissan power train warranty will not allow them to replace it because my check engine light is not showing a code. So I have a 2014 Pathfinder that is a complete safety hazard for my family and other people on the road. The SUV will cut out, slip, shutter, lose power and has the potential of causing and accident when trying to accelerate which is terrible for who ever was to hit me and also could be fatal if I was to be hit and the passenger side air bag does not deploy could really hurt/kill the passenger. Every excuse I get from Nissan is they reprogrammed the car and this never fixed anything. The car was having transmission issues back before it made it to 30,000 miles and now at 55,000 miles the SUV is having major issues with the transmission. This is a known issue but Nissan refuses to fix. Nissan instead puts this SUV back on the road knowing it is having a safety issue for acceleration and passenger side air-bag and putting people at risk. I am requesting Nissan to do a buy back of this SUV. I am not looking for a replacement with another faulty transmission or a rebuilt transmission. I have found that there is a class action law suit in federal court in Florida with people having the exact same issue. So obliviously there is a major problem with these transmissions.

2014 Nissan Pathfinder all four wheel hubs began rusting soon after purchase. Car is now 6 months old with hubs completely rusted...this should be recalled as it is a serious problem. I have two Nissan Pathfinders, one 2012 and one 2014..both maintained to same standards. I have no rust on my 2012 but 2014 is looking terrible. This is a dangerous problem.

Rear axles in new 2014 Nissan Pathfinder 3 months old with 5000 miles has severely rusted rear axles. Seems axles were made with cheap materials that are becoming heavily rusted. Front axles have no problems.
