dealer installed new tires, and brakes all the way around.
never had issues. only thing back up camera failed 44k. Rear shocks failed 47k (leaking oil oil spots on my driveway)shudder bouncing ride previous.
normal wear n tear on dealer installed aftermarket tires which supposed to last 80k lasted only 35k it was awful in snow and rain worn 75%. new tires falken 950 a/s

after last time towing 78k miles, 4700# camper CVT tranny acting up, bad jerking, shaking @25mph towing camper.in campground roads.. binding when come to stop rough disengage* downshift feel stuck @80k.. very rough shift (turned on tow mode when towing) from low to overdrive. wife heard loud whine sound. i checked power steering not that. she heard it from front....not when turning. I dropped off at 81k for oil change and tire rotation... told issues about cvt.. they heard it. they found out by pulled code p17fo..I researched looks like nissan have to replace cvt assembly... . told me come back for appointment with car rental 6 days later.
I currently have 82k miles on it, it is at dealer to CVT failure. dropped it off on monday and 5 days later not ready they called me recently. Thanks to dealer extended warranty plan, including car rental free for extensive repair, cvt trans.
Nice of dealer rental currently driving 2018 nissan rogue sport. I noticed 2018 models have D step CVT when i drove that rogue feels shifing speed, and has shifter on floor for manual shift.. i researched , watched youtube about d step
anyways 2018 models have more newer safety features. .. nice..
i hope when i get it back will be improved
REason chose pathfinder, i was former employee at enterprise rent a car.. when i first saw new R52 pathfinder models arrive at service center that where i worked, whoa, they look very nice, strong engine. and 7 passenger seating nice 4 wheel drive response winter time when had do oil changes.
felt same driving as alitma with v6.. been there few years no plm until had take to dealer to reprogram trans but i didn't care, like the output of engine, amazes me can tow 5k# trailer. tow haul button. and pretty good avg fuel mileage ( saw avg mpg when ppl rented those pathfinder)
wife loves comfort of driving and seating of our niece and nephews and my kids perfect.,.,
still keepping forever plan to put winter plow (long driveway) ... lift kit, bigger tires, brush guard driving / fog lights and light bar... "knock on wood" to next CVT
i still thanks to dealer for selling us extended warranty if we didn't we wouldn't have this pathfinder anymore.
