CVT problems
By pksuvan on 12/11/14 07:45 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2014 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SL 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

Purchased in April 2014 (same month vehicle was assembled). I was aware of the CVT issues before purchasing but hoped that Nissan had fixed the problem with newer builds. No such luck. Last weekend the problems began. Shudders, power loss, surging etc.. Pathfinder no longer safe to drive. Nissan replacing transmission under warranty. 19,000km on the odometer. No other complaints with this vehicle.

Disappointment - Transmission Failure
By gol_den2 on 12/04/14 12:20 PM (PST)

2014 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SL 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

Purchased this vehicle new in May 2014. In October 2014 with less than 5,000 miles the transmission began slipping at speeds above 60mph. Took it to dealer who said may be bad gas and to fill up once with 89 octane. In November 2014, the transmission slipped constantly (No warning lights came on). Took it to dealer, they confirmed it was a bad transmission. They said they were putting a new transmission in however it is still in the shop so I am unable to validate if it is new or a remanufactured transmission that is going in it. A vehicle with less than 6k miles and cost $45K a total disappointment. Stay away from the Pathfinder.

Transmission Problems
By unklbuk on 11/07/14 15:46 PM (PST)

Vehicle

2014 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SV 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

we just turned over 13,000km and the transmission failed. The Nissan dealer outlined they ordered a new one and would install it at no charge. Good deal. Problem- They put a remanufactured transmission in a brand new vehicle. BAD BAD BAD. Check the warranty documents as they are allowed to do this under their manufacturers warranty. I cannot believe that you spend 50K on a new vehicle and when you have a problem they put a USED transmission in it and call it new....

Shuddering transmission
By zborra on 08/27/14 10:48 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2014 Nissan Pathfinder SUV S 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

As others vehicle shudders at low speed but not consistenly and never in the shop and nor did our dearship know or ever heard of this problem. On recent vacation when our car was lowed to the nearest dealership, that's an enitely different story, we mentioned it to the service manager who know exactly what I was talking as soon as I said transmission problems. They have replace two transmissions already with the exact same issue. Conclusion is we mentioned it yet a third time to our local dealership who finally tried some thing revolutionary and looked up the problem on the internet! Finally agreed to address the issue. New transmission being installed as we speak.

Review

over all its exactly what we wanted in its class but have had nothing but problems. long story we had a 2013 pathfinder s class for 2 weeks and a Nissan tech smashed it into another customers car. they gave us a 2014 in place. We got it in Aug 2013, we reported a burning coolant smell in Nov 2013 with only 10 500 km. even though I can smell it in the car with my wife and 4 kids present, Nissan still says its within normal running operations. I also had both front wheel bearings replaced at 30000 km. now Nissan is refusing to take the coolant issue any further. not impressed what so ever! they say that its a common problem yet we looked online & nobody has had the same problem.

2014 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SL 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

This is the worst car I have ever owned. It has the shudder problem at 28 mph. Third time taking it in tomorrow. They say they cannot duplicate the problem so there is nothing wrong with it!! So frustrated with this car. Do not recommend anyone to buy this car.

Great Family Car

2014 Nissan Pathfinder SUV SL 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

This car has everything that we wanted and needed for a family car. The best feature that this car comes with is the sliding rows. When you have children in a car seat is that the middle you are able to completely move it forward without having to take the carseat out. Also the leg room in the front passenger has with a carseat in back is awesome. We traded in my two year old Ford Explorer to the Pathfinder because of the lack of leg room and every time someone needed to sit in the third row we needed to take the carseat out.

Transmission Issues
By sancarlos1 on 06/16/14 18:49 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2014 Nissan Pathfinder SUV Platinum 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

Like many posters here, we're having serious issues with our Nissan Pathfinder transmission. At low RPMs the entire car shakes. We've had it in for service several times. The issue has yet to be resolved. There are less than 10K miles on the car.

2014 Platinum -excellent so far
By azawisza on 05/28/14 18:40 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2014 Nissan Pathfinder SUV Platinum 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

I have only had it for almost 300 miles now, but it drives very well. It is a great ride, super comfortable and loaded with features. If you spend the extra money and get the Platinum model with all the extra features, you will be happy that you did. Hopefully wont have any of the transmission issues, but looking forward to taking it on a road trip in the near future to see how it does for a long haul drive.
