2013 Nissan Pathfinder SUV Platinum 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I purchased my 2013 Pathfinder in Nov of 2012, it began having the "shudder" fairly shortly after but I didn't acknowledge it for a while.
As it continued to worsen, I brought it to the dealers attention. I was told they were aware but did not have a fix for it.
I continued to mention it every time I brought the car in for service.
I was finally told to call Nissan which is a joke.
They sent me back to the dealer who has told me that for their protection they must be very careful with how they handle it. What about the $45,000 I spent.
Where is my protection?
I am considering hiring a lawyer....

2013 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SL 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Purchased on 12 Aug 2013.
Took it on a trip last week (30 Oct t0 2 Nov).
Experienced power surges when stopped, rpm jumped from 500 to 1000 .
Had to keep foot on brake.
Vehicle shuddered, once to the point that the whole vehicle shook.
Took it to dealer today, 4 Nov, they called and told me that the transmission had to be replaced.
The vehicle is 2 1/2 months old and has 2300 miles.
They also
told me that it was Nissan's policy to replace transmissions with remanufactured transmissions.
Immediately called Nissan customer Care, told them this was not acceptable.
Was told that my complaint would be expedited and that someone form Nissan HQ would call me.
Waiting for more info now.


Best Features

I am 6'5". The vehicle has plenty of room and is roomy and comfortable. With 3rd row seat down it has a lot of cargo space.


Worst Features

Fix the vehicle problem before you sell it. Dealer told me that it is a problem with the torque converter from a Nissan supplier.

2013 Nissan Pathfinder SUV Platinum 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

We purchased a new 2013 Pathfinder Platinum AWD.
3rd gen CVT.
You would think Nissan would have figured it out by now...NOT!!!
By the time we had driven 4000km the car had been in the shop twice to reprogram the transmission.
By 6000 km, in the shop two more times, but with a new transmission.
Within 500 km after the new transmission was installed, the same drivetrain vibration.
Nissan Canada says "It's a good car...we'll fix it"
We said you have wasted too many hours running a vehicle back and forth from the shop.
We lost 10k on trade in, and bought a 2013 Lexus RX350 F Sport.
Wish we had bought the Lexus in the first place!!

Review

I owned so many Nissan cars, trucks and suv's but I was so disappointed with 2013 Pathfinder. I bought my 2013 Pathfinder SV at first I was enjoying it but after I hit more than 1,000 miles it started shuddering and losing power. All the moulding under the door became loose and when I'm driving on the freeway it was vibrating so hard that the sound inside the cabin is so annoying. I brought it back to the dealer for them to fix the shuddering and losing power but the mechanic said "there's nothing wrong with. After three months of driving it I finally trade it in for the Titan which I should have bought in the first place.....


Best Features

Interior looks great.....


Worst Features

Better improve the transmission......

New CVT Transmission has shuttering problem that Nissan doesnt have a fix for. they have tried replacing Torque converter with limited success. this Transmission is flawed, we paid $38K for a vehicle that cannot be fixed. NO more Nissans ever!
