Failure Date: 02/16/2016

While driving the vehicle on February 16, 2016, traveling south west a state road, at approximately 40 mph, the sunroof shattered into many pieces. The glass shards were not contained and entered the vehicle, collapsing on both driver and occupants. The driver was temporally incapacitated as the glass fell on her head and face. When I filed a complaint with Nissan north America, they stated stated that the sunroof operated as designed.

Purchased 2014 Pathfinder Nissan from nalley Nissan in decatur, georgia. Prior to purchasing I conducted my research and was informed that the their was a recall on the hood latch. I was informed that this had been repaired. After returning home with the car over 170 miles, the 2nd day (rainy morning) while traveling with my two daughters, hood blew back (bending both sides), which blinded my visibility, thus forcing me to steer off the road to avoid hitting others. The dealer was not responsive and I contacted Nissan headquarters. After 2-weeks, an investigator came and ruled that the hood was not repaired properly. It took nearly 4-additional weeks to process paperwork. After 6-weeks of paying out of pocket for car rentals (they would not pay nor assist me with getting a rental car) which caused financial hardship; emotional distress (emergency room visits and several doctors appointments); and not to mention two paid car notes without the car. Nissan headquarters called to inform me they can only repair the car again and refund me my car rental fees. I am concerned that the hood on this car is a lemon defect that will jeopardize my safety as well as others. Is there any other course of action that could be demanded from the Nissan such as a refund for the car or new car replacement (2014)? I am not comfortable with the repairs to a hood latch for a 2nd time. Recall #15v033000.

Driving west on hwy 60 from nashville, TN to branson mo. No cars in front of me, just open fields on each side. I hear what sounds like an explosion. I look around and realize that I hear wind and glass above my head as well. Appox. 8 by 12 inches of glass was gone from the center of my sunroof. Luckily, my visor was closed or it could have been much worse with glass falling on my head and face. The dealer said that they've never heard of this before, but upon further research it seems to be a much more common occurrence than than I was lead to believe. This is an extremely dangerous issue and could have been much worse if my visor had been left open.

I bought this car a couple years ago and couldn't drive it right away because I bought it a little before I got my license. So eventually when I got it on the road I ended up getting a rejection sticker because the e break and a few other reasons. One thing I've noticed about my s. U. V is the wind shield wipers work when they want to. The whole underneath is rotted out, (that's what the guy told me who inspected my car) an ever since I've had it, I've had a problem with my steering, I've tried the power steering fluid didn't work. I'm not positive that there was a recall, but I was refered to this so I'm trying to see what I can do if I can do anything.

This is the second time in a year this same incident occurred, once in rain and now in snow, the heim joint to the wipers pop off so they will not work with snow and or rain, I was told it was meant to do that so save the motor, really, I almost got killed because of this so called safety feature, I was also told there would be no recall and that there is nothing they can do about the situation.

Failure Date: 04/23/2014

Driving the vehicle approximately 20 - 25 mph, and heard the rear driver's side window slowly cracking, and then by the time we got home, likely due to the heavy wind, it was completely shattered. I've never had a window shatter for no reason whatsoever. In the past I've noticed the window a little slow to go up or down, but had no idea it would result in this. My daughter was sitting in the seat, but thankfully she moved immediately as the cracking began.

Two problems: 1. Brand new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. Front windshield wipers completely stopped working twice. Dealer fixed them the first time under warranty, but they have stopped again, leaving us stranded in a snow storm. 2. The vehicle lurches and shakes under acceleration, especially around 20 mph. Something is wrong with the transmission. I have read online about it but people caution against bringing it in as the fixes either didn't work or made it worse. I am very concerned this vehicle is going to require major repairs somewhere down the road, likely outside of the warranty coverage.

Windshield cracked. 09/21/2013 windshield cracked again. 01/04/2014 windshield cracked again. 05/28/2014 windshield cracked again. Seems to be cheap material used to make the front windshield as it is cracking so easily. I have never had this kind of trouble with a vehicle.

I have manintained my car. In June, my Nissan dealership charged me $1500 after I reported a jolt in the transmission. I brought it back 08/10/2012 and they said the transmission needed replaced. I took it to another shop and they said the radiator fluid had leaked into the transmission and ruined the transmission presenting a financial burden and a huge safety issue.

Driving down interstate 95 and a truck sent bud in the air, went to clean windshield and ran out of cleaner. Just had vehicle serviced. Windshield wiper fluid was filled that morning at jiffylube. Windshield fluid light came on. Stopped and manually cleaned windshield. Noticed that windshield fluid tank was empty and refilled. Fluid was leaking out. Returned home and removed fender shield to look at tank. Fluid leaking out of bottom of tank seal. To this day we still operate without fluid due to cost to repair. This only happened when the weather is very warm as it is most of the year in savannah.

The driver side view miorror creates a real blind spot for the driver. It is smack in the middle of your face and blocks your view to the left for making left turns. Also, at an intersection ( four way), you are unable to see a car stopped on your left awaiting to cross over or to make a left in front of you. I have had several near miss incidents and this is a real problem. The mirrors need to be redesigned and placed at a lower level thus giving you a clear view through the left or driver side window.
