45,300 miles and going strong

2006 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


After 6 years of truoble-free service pulling a 21 ft Boston Whaler (occassionally) I recently had the fuel gauge problem. The dealer notified me of the extended warranty for this issue but that it has expired a day earlier! What? I called Nissan Consumer Affairs and after some back and forth with the dealer they approved the repair under warranty. Nissan even will reimburse the $99.00 "diagnosis" fee from the dealer. I was also informed of the extended warranty for the transmission/coolant issue until 6/2014 or 80,000 miles. So far, no problems with that.
The vehicle sits outside all the time in FL. No problems with the exterior or interior. Still have the OEM tires.

Best Features

Body-on-frame architecture. Most current SUV of this size (including Pathfinder) are going to flimsy uni-body construction.

Worst Features

When your extended tranny warranty expires on your current Pathfinder, or if it has, and you still don't have any problems, get en external tranny cooler and seal the factory system forever. You can get this done for less than $80.00. Check B & M Tranny coolers or Derale Series 8000 Plate Fin cooler.
