#826 of 1246 Nissan Radiator Oops
Aug 27, 2011 (7:47 am)
2006 Nissan Pathfinder..... Looks like I am another victim of Nissan's defective radiator issue. $6,000 plus cost...yet to fix. I was asked if I have had any Nissans in the past....listed 5 VIN #s since 1982. To no avail...not loyal enough for Nissan to assist. Yes, I have contacted a lawyer...defective parts, latent defect...pick a number. Nissans biggest issue may be that I am overly persistent. Not giving up yet. My prob...the TCM shorted out (transmission control unit) due to cross contamination of rediator fluid in the transmission. Hmm, let me think..... I went on line...evidently this is big deal. My warranty has expired...so have most everyone elses... What is the value of an extended warrant on a known defective part? I willl not give up......anyone out there want to get on board the train??

They have extended warranty up to 80,000 miles on radiator and trans. if no avail, screw 'em. I traded mine for a Hyundai Santa Fe LTD. Excellent. And I don't have to deal with Nissan Corp. anymore.

nissannews just replied to a twitter again telling me to call their customer service. God they are such idiots.
Keep getting out the message about Nissan in any fashion you can. People need to know how awful the Nissan company is to it's customers. Plus Nissan needs to feel the heat from screwing us.

Pretty much all the auto blogs and car mags have been running the NY Times article. I've filed a complaint with the NHTSA and http://www.autosafety.org/ as well. nissannews has ignored me on twitter, I posted a question on their FB page and it was promptly deleted. https://www.facebook.com/Nissan I'd like to think there will be a recall. I'm at week 6 w/o my frontier because parts have been on backorder!

Its about time the public knows a Nissan has made big mistake with both the swirl valve screws coming loose and the transmission and radiator being defective ,

#835 of 1246 2005 Pathfinder Transmission Question
Aug 29, 2011 (6:05 pm)
I have a 2005 Pathfinder. Recently I have noticed a vibration when I hit 50-60 mph, then the vibration stops when I go over 60 mph. I have been reading a lot of posts about radiator fluid leaking into the transmission fluid. I am wondering if the vibrations that I am experiencing are a early sign of this radiator fluid problem?
