Notes: The 2017 was redesigned with new fascia and headlights, but what will be particularly interesting to watch will be the new, direct-injected V6 engine with CVT. Nissan's history with CVTs has been shaky at best.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 012017

Pathfinder SV V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50 miles


vehicle avertibleThe very first time I was driving at highway speed, I heard noise that sounded like it was coming from the rear like a window was open/not shut tight. I checked all of the window switch's and open and closed them 5 or 8 times. The noise was still there. When I got to my American Legion Post, I open and closed all of the doors and rear tailgate door/hatch. Had my breakfast and headed home. The dam noise was still there. I had to take Pathfinder back to the Daytona Auto Mall Nissan Dealership the next day so they could have what I was told at the of sale( there shop was going to install, what I was led to believe a Nissan sunroof). They were advised of the terrible air noise at that time. After the sunroof was installed, the very first time I drove at highway speed to check for the noise that was coming from the rear, I couldn't hear it anymore, because of the terrible sounding air noise like a wind tunnel that was coming from the new supposedly installed by Nissan Dealership sunroof, that was supposedly A Nissan sunroof. Back to the Daytona Auto Mall Nissan Dealership to have the problem resolved/fixed, repaired. Texted me a days to pick the SUV up, repairs completed. Same problem the very first time I was able to drive at highway speed. Back to the dealership. That time they had it for about a week or so. Same problem, this time I noticed that they/dealership moved the air deflector so that it was now covering a lot of the sunroof opening. Went back a few more times more times and just got jerked around, the sales man and I took test road drives and he used a sound to register the air noise. Me thinking OK, they will correct the problem. No such luck. They said the noise was within allowable range. Ain't that a shame. $40 some thousand dollars and it sounds like driving an old worn out convertible. I am 75 year old disabled veteran and dam sure am not going to take the Daytona Auto Mall Nissan Dealership screwing me over with out a fight and as much negative advertising/complaints it takes to get all of my 2017 Nissan Pathfinder vehicles problems taken care of.
