Hi cmscott2. I received a message via email that you posted about a link and also trying to get a petition started but your post does not show on this forum. My email is lauracurtisspalmeryahoo.com if you would send me any info you have. This link goes to a Facebook page warning against Nissan. Unfortunately there are not many members. And unfortunately too from what I am seeing the complaints are spread onto so many forums that it is hard to gage how many there actually are. I've been trying to post to as many as I can find to get folks to complain to NHTSA since that is really the one important are to file safety somplaints, which is the only way to force a recall. Having it be more then just the Pathfinder too makes it that much more confusing since the same issue covers from 2005 to at least 2010 and a range of different four wheel drive Nissans. And that they are doing thier best to add confusion doesn't help. However I am glad to see that with the one settlement over a class action suit shows they know it is being taken seriously is a little relief.
Folks, please keep reporting to NHTSA and make it clear it is a huge safety issue!!!! Only way for a recall. PS this is the Facebook site: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/BEWARE-OF-2005-NISSAN-PATHFINDERS-/114117588602- 598?fref=ts

while i ditched my broken Pathfinder a year and still curse Nissan to this day...i received a piece of junk mail from them today. How interesting the warranty has been extended to cover the radiator and its component parts (transmission, not power train) to 10yrs/100,000 miles- whichever comes first. Still no RECALL!
Now the real fun part to this "wonderful"news from this piece of crap company is that it comes with a...wait for it....CO-PAY! That's right! If one were to exercise the 10yr/100K miles you get to pay 3K yourself! How wonderful is that!!!!!! Oh thank you Nissan for extending the warranty on something that should be RECALLED. Your commitment to your owners safety and satisfaction is like no one else.
For those who have paid for fixes already there is an online claim form that you can submit in the next few weeks at www.nissanassist.com. Of course they state that this reimbursement is subject to certain terms, conditions, and exclusion. Wonder if I can get them to pay for all my rental cars and repairs that we not needed?????
Meanwhile I am very happy with my Honda Pilot and the quality of care that Honda provides to me as an owner.

This was a message I posted a few days ago. This is about a class action lawsuit Nissan settled and is only to save their butts a little and still end up with big ripped off bucks. Did you sign up for a class action suit? The reason I am asking is that the way they word it to me it appears you have to be part of the suit to get reimbursed, but those after the suit get part of it paid for. What I would be concerned with if anyone goes for this is if they set a limit for what they will pay. In our case we paid $6000.00.
I would not be surprised if they set it for something like $4000.00 and we end up paying $3000.00 being over 90,000 miles so end up with only $1000.00. I would rather keep pushing for a recall that will help everyone and teach Nissan a lesson about loyalty and ethics.
My previous message:
Looks like Nissan has extended the warranty again to avoid admitting a defect in the radiator. Here are the details with links:
Up to 8 years/80,000 miles (whichever comes first): No customer co-pay
After 8 years/80,000 miles (whichever comes first) up to 9 years/90,000 miles (whichever comes first): Customer co-pay is $2,500
After 9 years/90,000 miles (whichever comes first) up to 10 years/100,000 miles (whichever comes first): Customer co-pay is $3,000

Just a reminder as to how important it is to report the transmission/radiator problems to NHTSA. Concentrate on the safety issues if you were driving during this occurrence, or even fear of what could have happened if you were in traffic at the time.
Safety is what creates recalls, which leads to getting the transmission, radiator and anything related taken care of at no cost. And hopefully reimbursement for those of us stuck with these unsafe lemons. The more complaints they get that are safety related the better.
Also be careful in reporting it http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/complaints/index.cfm to use these components as this is what NHTSA is doing the investigation on. The top two seem to have the largest number of complaints but there are some connected with the engine and cooling system so NHTSA is not getting the full picture of the number of complaints.
POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:CONTROL MODULE (TCM, PCM)
POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:COOLING UNIT AND LINES
POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:TORQUE CONVERTER

I am currently going thru this situation and being told by Nissan I will need to pay oh not 3000.00 but 3300.00 for this issue. My Pathfinder was just in in July for the routine oil and transmission check no mention of this issue at all! where do I start in helping with this class action law suit or recall?

I have a 2007 pathfinder type s. I have the radiator/transmission problem. I also have stumbled on another problem: my car will not start or crank I found it online that the flooded valve body may be the reason for this. does anyone have a definite answer?

contact your local BBB and just get it on file. Again as mentioned above by someone, we are being told the only way a recall can happen is if your car caused you to almost have a significant accident. So tell them about if your car stopped in the middle of the intersection and your near miss accident etc.. then contact the Nissan Corporate Office and through my experience, and give them the same information. THey do not car if your car just stopped or would not start etc. they are only interested in the dangerous situation your were in or almost in. If enough people call and explain their "safety" issue, this is the only way they will put out a recall. There is also a National place where people call to report car issues and resolve they are not getting. ALl is placed on record.

It's a shame that many many people have and are having this issue and Nissan will not do anything unless there was a safety issue, and that they do not care about the many people having the problem in general "that they knew was a problem". They are ignoring that fact. Just imagine all the people not knowing to place their issue on this site and have just accepted nothing will be done for all of them. And the people who have the problem and were lucky enough not to have a serious safety issue.

Is there any case documentation we can review that would assist us in being able to articulate and express our issue. How much was small claims and can you direct us how to get this started. I and I know others so appreciate your shared information.
