Major problem right from factory!
By DMY1973 on
2003 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
The day I picked up the Pathfinder I
experienced a stalling/idling problem.
The problem continued to get worse and
the first time I used it on the
highway, the vehicle would not upshift
forcing the engine to redline at 65
mph. The dealer made $1500 worth of
torque converter warranty repairs. The
parts took a month to come in and the
vehicle was completely unreliable to
drive. This appears to be fixed now but
the windshield stress cracked at 6 mos
due to improper installation. I enjoy
driving this Pathfinder I am very
concerned about its long term
reliability. I have another 30 months
on my lease and that scares me.
Comfort - Heated seats - Quiet interior
Reliability issues. Gas mileage is
terrible (17-18mpg) for a vehicle that
is not very powerful.
