Summary of Complaint

THE TRANSMISSION IN MY 2005 NISSAN PATHFINDER HAS FAILED. MY SON WAS IN A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION ON A BUSY STREET AND THIS PROBLEM JEOPARDIZED HIS LIFE.THE VEHICLE BASICALLY STOPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF A TURN ONTO A BUSY STREET. THE DEFECTIVE TRANSMISSION/RADIATOR BREAKDOWN IS A SERIOUS SITUATION AND A KNOWN ISSUE WITH THESE VEHICLES. MY RADIATOR FLUID LEAKED INTO THE TRANSMISSION AND FAILED. THE AMOUNT TO REPAIR THIS VEHICLE AND MAKE THIS A SAFE VEHICLE IS MORE THAN WE CAN AFFORD....APPROXIMATELY $5300 BECAUSE THE FUEL SENDING UNIT ALSO FAILED!! I FEEL THIS FAULTY PRODUCT SHOULD BE RECALLED AND NECESSARY REPAIRS MADE OR A REIMBURSEMENT MADE BY NISSAN. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I GOT MY OIL CHANGED AT TEAM NISSAN IN LITHIA SPRINGS, AND ON THE 2ND DAY OF DRIVING THE VEHICLE MY 2005 PATHFINDER OVERHEATED. I IMMEDIATELY CALLED TEAM NISSAN AND TOLD THEM OF THE PROBLEM, AND THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY APOLOGIZE AND TO BRING IT IN. WELL THE SUV WAS TOO HOT TO PUT ON THE ROAD AT THAT POINT SO I STOPPED BY WAL-MART TO ADD COOLANT. I LET THE TRUCK COOL OFF AND THEN ADDED COOLANT. THE LEVELS THEN APPEARED NORMAL AND I MADE MY WAY TO TEAM NISSAN. WHEN I GOT THERE THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY COULD SEE ME AND TO COME BACK THE NEXT DAY. WHILE I WAS TALKING WITH THE REP. I NOTICED THAT THERE WAS A GUY TOPPING OFF MY FLUIDS UNDER THE HOOD. WHEN I CAME BACK THE NEXT DAY, THEY CHECK IT AND TOLD ME THAT I HAD NO COOLANT AND THAT MY RADIATOR FLUID HAD LEAKED INTO THE TRANSMISSION AND THAT THE FLUIDS WERE MIXING. THE REPAIRS TOTALED UP TO $5028.43 INCLUDING A RADIATOR REPLACEMENT, COOLANT FLUSH, AND A TRANSMISSION REPLACEMENT. I TOLD HIM THAT I HAD HEARD OF OTHER RECALLS AND COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS (I HAD JUST HEARD ONE OF THE REPS CALL A CUSTOMER AND TELL HIM THAT HIS RECALL ON THE SAME ISSUES WERE COMPLETE AND THAT HE COULD PICK UP HIS VEHICLE), BUT HE SAID THAT NOTHING WAS SHOWING IN THE SYSTEM. I THEN TOLD HIM THAT I COULD NOT GET THAT DONE AT THIS TIME AND I ENQUIRED THAT I HAVE NOT HAD THIS ISSUE AT OTHER PLACES AFTER AN OIL CHANGE. HE GAVE ME AN EXCUSE AS THE GUY DID THE DAY BEFORE AND SHRUGGED ME OFF. HE SUGGESTED THAT I NEEDED TO CHECK THE COOLANT EVERY OTHER DAY AND THAT THE PROBLEM WAS LIKELY TO CONTINUE. SO THE WAITING GAME BEGINS. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I TOOK MY CAR TO A NISSAN DEALERSHIP COMPLAINING ABOUT ISSUES WITH THE TRANSMISSION SLIPPING. I WAS TOLD THEY FOUND NOTHING WRONG- HOWEVER THE NISSAN TECHNICIAN WAS FULLY AWARE OF THE ISSUES WITH THE TRANSMISSION RADIATOR COOLANT AND FAILED TO INFORM ME OF THE POSSIBLE ISSUE. WHY NOT JUST REPLACE THE RADIATOR BEFORE IT CAUSES THE TRANSMISSION TO GO BAD. FINALLY THE TRANSMISSION FAILED AT 130K MILES AND OF COURSE I AM TOLD THAT I AM OUT OF LUCK AND $4200. I THINK IT IS REALLY SAD THAT NISSAN OFFERED EXTENDED WARRANTIES FOR CUSTOMERS UNDER CERTAIN MILES AND LEFT OTHERS OUT IN THE COLD. IF THERE WAS ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO PROVE THEY WERE AWARE OF THE DEFECT ALL ALONG THEN CUSTOMERS SHOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE THIS REPAIRED AT NO COST TO THEM REGARDLESS OF THE NUMBER OF MILES ON THE VEHICLE. *TR

WHILE BACKING OUT OF A PARKING SPACE MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AND IT FELT LIKE MY TRANSMISSION WAS SLIPPING. I HAD THE VEHICLE TOWED TO THE NISSAN DEALER. THEY TOLD ME THE RADIATOR FAILED AND THE RADIATOR FLUID SEEPED INTO THE TRANSMISSION FLUID CAUSING EVERYTHING TO FAIL. 80, 000 MILES IS THE WARRANTY. I AM JUST OVER THAT. THEY ARE OFFERING ME A $2500.00 CO PAY BUT I FEEL THEY SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THIS PROBLEM. THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL ON THE RADIATOR TO PREVENT THIS PROBLEM. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I WAS LEAVING AN APPOINTMENT AT THE HOSPITAL AND AS I APPROACHED A SPEED BUMP I HEARD A LOUD DROP NOISE AND THE VEHICLE WOULD NO LONGER MOVE UPON PRESSING THE GAS. THERE WAS A COMPLETE LOSS OF MOTIVE POWER. I PUT THE VEHICLE IN PARK AND TURNED IT OFF AND THEN ON AGAIN AND IT WENT INTO GEAR HOWEVER I WAS UNABLE TO ACCELLERATE OVER 40MPH AND HEADED STRAIGHT TO A DEALERSHIP. I RECEIVED A CALL ON FROM THE DEALER DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM AS A FAILED TRANSMISSION FLUID COOLER LOCATED IN THE RADIATOR ASSEMBLY THAT ALLOWED COOLANT TO MIX WITH AND CONTAMINATE THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID, RESULTING IN DAMAGED INTERNAL TRANSMISSION COMPONENTS AND A DAMAGED INTERNAL TRANSMISSION COMPUTER. *TR
