Ok. Im sorry to hear you are having these problems with Nissan! For one, they know EXACTLY what the problem is. So, you need to go back to that Nissan, go to the highest level at the location and request ALL of your money because you will need it to replace your transmission. I had a Nissan do the same to me, flush the fluid...charged me when they knew the issues w/ the vehicles. So I raised some voice and got my money back, car was fixed at another Nissan. Mine was fixed in 2010..one of the "firsts" I believe. Anyway, please report this to the Highway Safety board...as a vehicle safety issue that your car wont accelerate and such, this is a safety hazard and THAT IS THE ONLY WAY THEY WILL RECALL!! OR IT TAKES A FAMILY TO DIE BEFORE THESE DAMN COMPANIES FIX A PROBLEM THAT IS THERES. And we are to teach our children to take responsibility for their mistakes right? Look at big business!!! Sickening. good luck to you. It's such a mess.
I honestly tell EVERY Nissan owner I see to get it checked. I'm probably the crazy Nissan woman in Va Beach but I dont care. I would never talk about Nissan as a good company ever in my life.

Great answer! As I wrote previously, and same as this response, it is so important to report this to Highway Safety as a dangerous safety issue. So many complaints have been about the money, which is huge, $6000.00 in our case, but the close call we had when our SUV went nuts in very busy traffic still lives with us. I am so grateful my husband had the quick reaction he did to take control of the vehicle so we and others were not hurt or worse. So important to report this to NHTSA!!! https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/VehicleComplaint/index.xhtml">link title

Here is the link again in case anyone has not filed a complaint, I have and I would recommend that everyone does. I still can't drive in overdrive I have to stay in 4th gear, which of course also sucks gas mileage. I hope that everyone will help each other here since we all are having this issue and file your complaint, I'm sorry for the ones that have already spent thousands to fix, you could hopefully get reimbursed something if the investigation NHTSA proves Nissan wrong.

On top of the transmission/radiator issue....Has anyone also experienced their pathfinder NOT STARTING/CRANKING. I brought it to the nissan dealership and they could not determine anything and assumed it was the ecu being burned out, i also looked online and they said it was a matter with the valve body having a short circuit. Does anyone who has experienced this problem know the real solution/problem?

Water in the transmission can cause the valve body to short out. There is an in line fuse. Change the fuse...if it blows, you have contamination. The brain of the transmission has to tell the ignition sys that the vehicle is in park to crank. If this fuse is blown, the communication is not there. Thus...no start.

I'm experiencing the same problem, but my Path finder did not start acting up until 103336 miles, and Nissan want fix it for free, only if its at 80,000 miles they will fix it for free. now I'm stuck with an SUV that I can't drive.
I would like to know how can I get on the class action suite for this Path Finder 2005.
