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


Review

Transmission Issues (water contamination) due to radiator leaking! The only choice is to pay $5000 plus to get it fixed @ 90,000 miles! Only buy if the Trans and radiator has been replaced.

Review

Bought an 06 pathfinder in 07 with 30000 miles windows slowly went out one by one radio staticky, cup holder slowly broke down, heater went out works sometimes. And at 140,000 cat converters failed, fuel tank failed, As soon as you pay it off get ready for everything to fall apart and break down. Watch your coolant mixing and messing up the transmission. Nissan does not stand by their vehicles. Toyota is the way to go. Will not buy another Nissan.

Review

Beware there will be a complete transmission failure after 140,000 or before. It will leave you with hate in your heart for Nissan, the dealer and the car salespeople. Untrustworthy jerks. There is an obvious defect in the radiator / transmission which allows radiator fluid to go into the transmission. Once this happens you will need a complete transmission and radiator. It cost me almost $6K+ fix both).
There is a class action lawsuit against Nissan USA and they may cover 1/2 of the expenses but you will still be out of $3K in out of pocket expenses. I was past the mileage to be in the lawsuit. Of course no one told me of the known cross contamination problem when I purchased it used.
There is also a catalytic convertver / O2 sensor problem which will not allow the vehicle to pass smog. I was quoted $1250 to replace. I will never buy another Nissan vehicle.
I paid approximately $300.00 for two bolt on catalytic converters. A mechanic who is a friend gave me a break and installed both for $80.00. My SUV is running great again now. No thanks to Nissan or any Nissan dealer. They are still crooks and I will never buy another Nissan again.
