#5 - Transmission Noise problem of the 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
On two separate occasions, I cannot remember the date of the first incident. My 2005 Nissan Pathfinder stalled and would not accelerate. My family was in the vehicle and we were leaving a place of business, which was kind of on a hill and when I tried to accelerate the vehicle would not move, but started to go backward. I cut the vehicle off and tried again and we were off and going, until we were on the road and in traffic going about 45mph the vehicle started to stall, and we had to get ourselves out of traffic. I gt the vehicle going again and everything seemed to go fine for about 2 weeks, then on sept 15 I woke early to take a family member to a weekend class, as I was driving down my street I heard a noise coming from the 2005 Pathfinder I rolled my window down to hear the sound as I was listening the sound went away and all of a sudden I was approaching the traffic light the vehicle began to stall, I was pushing on the gas and it would not go, the light was green and I had cars behind me. I had to turn my hazard lights on and try to get myself out of the middle of the road to safety, once I did I had to park my vehicle in a business parking lot at a shopping center that is close to my home. At this point my vehicle is parked due to the fact that it will not accelerate when put in drive. I have talked to Nissan dealership and they have advised that they have heard of the radiator/transmission fluid mix and this seems to be the case with my 2005 Nissan Pathfinder, and that it is costly to get it repaired. The cost is ultimately left up to me, and I feel as if this is a Nissan issue that has been an ongoing issue for quite some time for some other Nissan customers that needs to be considered a recall and Nissan should be fixing this manufacturing problem. The failure date was Saturday, Sep. 15, 2012.
#6 - Transmission Noise problem of the 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
The vehicle was a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder. VIN of the vehicle was 5N1AR18W65_. We were traveling about 35 mph in town and heard a grinding noise. The Nissan would'nt move and there was transmission fluid running out of under it. We had to have it towed home. Where it still sits. This transmission noise problem happened on Friday, August 3, 2012.
#7 - Transmission Noise problem of the 2007 Nissan Pathfinder
The vehicle involved was a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder. This experience has been absolutely terrible. I am a mother and drive to all of the activities everyday which adds immense stress on me everyday knowing that any second my car will break down leaving us stranded. I bought my Pathfinder used from the Nissan dealership and have barely owned it for 2 years. I took it into the dealership after it was running at 40mph and would not let me accelerate and making crazy grinding noises as though I were riding on the road shoulder. The dealership informed me that it wasn't a problem with my transmission but my radiator leaking coolant into the transmission which as a result ruined the transmission. Having done research on the issue I have read that it is a common issue with these models and that Nissan corporate is well aware of and refuse to do anything about it. This is a great big safety issue imposed on my family and I am terrified to even drive. I am upside down on my vehicle and cannot trade it in on a new vehicle and am left with my hands tied. I am joining the other millions out there filing a class action suit against Nissan in the hopes of resolving this issue. This transmission noise problem happened on Monday, March 5, 2012.

#8 - Transmission Noise problem of the 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
The car involved was a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder. The VIN of this vehicle is 5N1AR18U35_. I took in my Pathfinder this week after weeks of hearing a deep noise coming from the engine when I tried to accelerate around 2000 rpm. Turns out the radiator wall cracked and came apart allowing the coolant and transmission fluid to mix together. Apparently this has been a problem in Pathfinders, especially the 2005 model. I had the radiator replaced (total cost $1,671. 61) but was told this is probably a band-aid fix because there's no way to tell how much damage has been done to the transmission. It was 02/01/12 when this transmission noise issue occurred.
#9 - Transmission Noise problem of the 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
The car involved is a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder. Transmission started sliipping started jerking while driving, alsosounded like tires were making noise especially around 40 mph. I was driving on rt 62 near my home and was very fortunate not being t-boned as a pulled out,my Pathfinder didnt go like it was supposed to, fortunately the oncoming vehicle stopped. I took it to a Nissan dealer and they said that the 2005,2006,2007 Pathfinder were known to have an issue with the cooler failing and breaking down the transmission and that they knew about the faulty cooler for along time. Nissan said they increased the warranty from 60,000 to 80,000 but other than that they have done nothing. And didnt inform the public. My family and I, didnt get hurt or hurt someone else, however this scenario could be very dangerous and Nissan should inform the public and recall the transmission and faulty cooler before deaths start happpening. This problem occurred on January 12, 2011.

#11 - Transmission Noise problem of the 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
2005 Nissan Pathfinder has problems with antifreeze leaking into the transmission because of some design flaw. After researching this problem I see that there are many complaints of this occurring with this same particular model. The transmission starts to make a grinding noise and then will start slipping. Nissan is aware of the problem because they are the one that has diagnosed it over and over again, but have refused to issue a TSB or recall. This is a very serious defect and is costing people 5 to 10 thousand dollars to fix. My 2005 Nissan Pathfinder has just begun the tell tale symptoms of this costly problem. Nissan should consider the problems that Toyota is having right now and issue a recall for this defect. It was Sunday, Jan. 10, 2010 when this transmission noise issue happened.

2005 Nissan Pathfinder with 106,000 miles has had 3 transmissions replaced since June 2009. Dealership covered them under warranty, but now other non-warranty issues are occurring which were caused by those transmission failures. Vehicle has had the transcooler replaced, hoses, and radiator replaced and flushed. . . At my cost. Vehicle makes a dangerously loud vibrating noise between 40-60 mph and begins to shake.

#18 - Transmission Noise problem of the 1997 Nissan Pathfinder
The car involved is a 1997 Nissan Pathfinder. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is JN8AR05S9V_. Since purchasing this vehicle, I've had complained about the alignment (taken to deal and numerous other places) it has been aligned, tires rotated, balanced, etc. 7 (times) and I was told nothing was wrong hmmmm. Had to have all four tires replaced at 30,740 miles. Nissan denies its a defect on their car. I've repeatedly complained about a clunking noise in the rear (or brakes) again "no problems found--cant duplicate problem". Well, now I'm told my transmission needs to be replaced. The front end "steering" if very sensitive and when making a sudden movement, the car overcompensates tossing you throughout the cab. Cd and radio as well as antenna motor have recently been replaced. This car is a lemon and dangerous!!!!!! I want my money back!!!!!!!. It was Monday, Jan. 5, 1998 when this transmission noise issue happened.
