Is It a Good One?
By jaredsalinger on


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


Recently, Nissan mailed me a warranty extensions on the radiator, because it might fail and leak coolant.

Some 2005 Pathfinder owners have had the radiator fail, causing coolant to leak into the transmission and ruin it.

I contacted my Nissan dealerships (2 in my area), and they tell me that there is no fix, and that the radiator has to fail before they can replace it.

Really, Nissan?!

Well then, I'm sorry, but I cannot support an automaker who engages in such practices.

Ironically, my Pathfinder has been a great vehicle.
So now, I'm left wondering if I got a good one, or if it's just a ticking time bomb.

Best Features

Utility, Performance, Style, Comfort, Off Road Ability.

Worst Features

Be built by an automaker that stands behind its products with recalls, instead of hiding behind extended warranties.
