Call both of these firms...I spoke with Mazie a few weeks ago...it's case is in court awaiting a ruling from the Judge. Nissan asked the suit be dismissed (shocking I know)... My very non-legal understanding is the key for victory will be to get the class-action suits certified by the Judge. If certified as a class, Nissan will then need to engage instead of putting the blame and cost on its customers...I just paid $4,950 to have my 05 Pathfinder fixed. Will never buy another Nissan again...

And then what? Get a coupon? Maybe you should talk to your own lawyer and go your own way. If the amount of damages is too low for a lawyer, you could try small claims court.

We have a Class Action suit being petitioned to the Northern District Court of Texas. My wife is the lead plaintiff. Our car (Pathfinder) is currently in repair and should be out of the shop this Friday. Once the petition is filled...I will release the name of our Law Firm. Not quite sure how wide the Class Action will be. Same problem....the radiator cooling system failed and contaminated into the transmission. Our TCM died....(ele module that tells the ignition system in in park), upon diagnostics by Nissan, they determined the contamination of fluids. Transmission is now dead. The real problem is once the indicators are present, it is too late. I wish I had kept the response to Nissan we wrote when they selected us for a response on the quality and satisfaction to their customer service. Nissan, you have to be kidding! The question is: Are they stupid or stupidly smart. We'll see....

I have a 2006 Frontier with no problems so far (knock wood). Are there preventative measures I can take to ensure I don't get this problem. Thanks D

Bypass the transmission fluid internal cooler in the radiator. There is a detailed step by step DIY procedure for this in the Frontier Forum. It is easy and you will not need to purchase anything.
All the best!

I keep reading how just about everyone who owns this car including myself has the same problem and I still don't understanding how Nissan can get away with this. I am a single mom and, if my car doesn't work my life gets turned upside down. On top of all that, the problem is so expensive I don't know how I'm gonna pay for it. I still owe on my car so I'm paying for a car that at the moment I can't even drive. Anybody who can offer any advice or just say anything that can help me would be great!

I'm sorry to hear about your misfortune with your Nissan. If you have under
80k miles,Nissan issued an extended warranty. If over 80k miles, you may be out of luck unless the pending class action lawsuit gets some results. I haven't had any problems yet with my '07, but I'm worried that it's just a matter of time. I will either trade it or disconnect the trans. cooler before it happens, which may be an option for you if & when you get your vehicle back. Good luck!
