2005 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Purchased used 05 Pathfinder in January of this year. Within a month of owning the vehicle, began having the transmission problems that everyone talks about on here (radiator fluid mixing w/ transm. fluid) completely destroying the transmission and radiator. Also began having the fuel sensor problem that everyone talks about. This all occurred between 65K - 70K miles. Don't take just my word for it. Read all of the bad reviews online for this vehicle for the tranny and fuel sensor problem. New tranny costs $5,000. To top things off, the gas mileage is awful on this vehicle (16 mpg best I ever got) I highly suggest you stay away from this vehicle.

Worst Features

Nissan needs to take ownership of the "known" transmission issue on this vehicle. Nissan is well aware of this problem but completely refuses to accept it. I thankfully had an extended warranty that I purchased through a 3rd party at the time of the purchase that saved my *ss.
