2013 Nissan Pathfinder

2013 Nissan Pathfinder

Last week, Nissan announced they may have to recall 110,000 2013 Nissan Pathfinders and the Infiniti JX crossovers. The possible recall is due to customer complaints about losing power suddenly while driving. The issue has been pointed to faulty transmission cooler line connections regarding the continuously variable transmission, which is in the Pathfinder and the JX.

At this time, the problem is being investigated and no recall has been announced, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says a recall is likely.
