yes , what happened during the years of and 2005-2006 Nissan changed Vendors for there pathfinder radiators, and they all had a flaw in them of leaking in the internal cooling line inside the bottom and thus causing the automatic transmission fluid to mix in with the antifreeze they should make good for this or seek a obama bail out if they cant financially afford to fix there problem with these year pathfinders, however the previous models older to 2004 and after 2006 the 2007 up to date are OK

We joined the class action lawsuit a few months ago and today I received an email from Lieff Cabraser indicating they had about 300 people that had joined this lawsuit. I sure hope they get a recall going on this! We haven't had our car for months because of this. We live in north Atlanta,GA. does anyone have any recommendations for a good mechanic in our area that can help us with our transmission? I can't afford $5000 from the Nissan dealer.

I joined this class action against Nissan months ago, after having to replace my transmission and radiator (both sets of ujoints as well, but thats another story)
and in going to check today, I don't see any progress.
Has this been closed out?

I have the contact name for Lieff Cabraser who emailed me recently. This is still open. Here is copy from the email she sent me last week and her contact info is below.
"'We now have about 300 people who have contacted us regarding problems with their Nissan Pathfinder. If we file a class action against Nissan, it would be a nationwide case including all 2005/2006 Nissan Pathfinder owners who have experienced the defect.''

From what Nissan told me, they will not do a recall because there were not that many vehicles. But they did tell me when my vehicle goes in that they would work with me getting it repaired and possibly covering part of the bill or all of it. My situation was different, I was already a Aamco with my warranty company (stay away from Aamco, they suck). I wish I paid them the money to put the trans back together and taken it to Nissan.
Anyway, Call Nissan directly, tell them your situation and you know there was a bad batch of radiators delivered and this was the cause. Push them, be nice but firm.
