I had a head-on collision with my 2013 Nissan Pathfinder

I had a head-on collision with my 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum going 60-65 mph. The entire engine compartment is gnarly; the engine is upside down and backwards, but nothing from under the front hood entered the vehicle. A law enforcement officer told me how surprised he was and said that if I plan to buy another vehicle, I should buy a Nissan Pathfinder because he had never seen so much damage to a vehicle without the driver un-injured.


Panthefinder 2013

I got a Nissan Pathfinder 2013 My car shakes and herjs all the time I did enjoy it only for maybe a year and that it.


Nissan sucks it's a money pit

I' ve had to replace the transmission 5'000. Just found out that my subframe is rusted out. I will never buy another Nissan in my life. It's like having a boat it's a money pit.


Transmission ISSUES 2x

We bought the 2013 model in June 2019. Within a year we had to replace the transmission, and within 18 months we had to replace the A/C. Luckily I paid for the extended warranty. Just this month, the new 2019 transmission is slipping again. The warranty expired in June.


Very big nose

My Nissan Pathfinder 2013 model makes noise coming from the fan i change in the fan I sill makes noise when I’m driving and all lights are on the dash board when i want the Nissan company they told me my car has a lot of issue transmission problem brakes problem ABS problem the car only makes that noise the other thing it’s working well when I’m driving. It doesn’t show me how many kilometre I’m driving. Sometimes the car is quiet and it doesn’t show me any lights


I’d buy it again

Excellent traction from a stop on a powder snow packed 8% hill. The electronic traction control system is fantastic. We bought the 2013 platinum model exactly 10 years ago, driving an average 10,000 miles a year. (Currently indicates 102000 miles) We have had zero problems and intend to keep it until I’m dead (which I hope is not for a long time). If you can find a used one, buy it after it passes inspection.


Nissan CVT is a ticking time bomb

We bought this car used with 60k miles. It had recently had the CVT replaced, which should have been red flag #1. It now has 150k miles and is going to need another transmission soon. The local Nissan dealer has examined it and advised us not to take it on any long trips. Styling, comfort and performance have otherwise been fine, but when stuff breaks it is expensive to repair. The transmission is going to be nearly $6,000. If it hasn't given you problems yet, it eventually will. Stay far, far away from this vehicle.


Not what I expected from nissan

Both it used in 2016 with 36,000 for 3 months was OK then the problem begin . First was the stabilizer , then at 45000 one of the fan motors went , at 57000 needed brakes and rotors was replaced when purchase Ed, at 70,000 front axels , at 75000 stabilizer again . xxx
