The good & the bad (transmission)
By djf4 on

Vehicle

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

Review

Purchased on 2-18-13 the suv drives and handles well. The vehicle is roomy inside and not too large on the outside. Averages about 25 mpg at 70 mph and over 26 at 55-60 mph. Expect 20-21 mpg in local driving. Well pleased with the Pathfinder except for transmission problems. On slow acceleration, 20 to 25 mph,the transmission will shutter/shake. The problem repeats at about 40 mph. On 4-17-13, the Nissan dealer, who was very helpful, advised Nissan is aware of the problem but has no fix at this time. A Nissan Service Bulletin, dated Jan '13, did NOT fix the transmission! Hope the repair comes soon as I fear the transmission will fail while traveling.

Favorite Features

Good handling, brakes, smooth ride, OK gas mileage for a SUV. Looks good in Cayenne red.

Suggested Improvements

TRANSMISSION. Nissan needs better quality control.
