    I will start off by saying that my family loves our 2014 pathfinder platinum. It has been a good SUV despite the many minor things I have had to repair on it. It has just over 100k miles on it. Now the sad stuff... We bought a travel trailer that weighs 3300 dry. I did a lot of research and I...

    Does anyone have experience driving 2022 4WD Pathfinder to tow a trailer that is at least 9.5 foot tall? My setup is going to be: 10ft TALL x 21ft long x 7.3ft wide x 4,800 lb fully loaded single-axis trailer with 500 lb tongue weight (assume 600 lb payload inside Pathfinder including passengers...

    Hello! We have a ‘22 PF Platinum (6,000/600 capacity) with the tow package and are looking at travel trailers. We will purchase a weight distribution hitch and brake control. I have read through many online resources, read through this forum, talked to many RV dealers, and am getting SO MUCH...

    We purchased a 2022 AWD SL Premium Pathfinder in April this year. We were driving a 2015 SL Pathfinder which was a very good vehicle for us with no real issues. The 2022 drives great and overall we like the options and how it operates with a few really frustrating computer quirks. It took me a...
  5. R53 Pathfinder General Discussion Forum
    Considering in buying the new Pathfinder, but I saw in the sticker for a platinum trim a TOW Package - DELETE. As per sticker this removes the tow receiver hitch and the 7 pin harness. I am wondering if this also removes the heavy during transmission cooler? It does not state it on the sticker...

    Just upgraded the stock rear springs and shocks and it looks great. The headlights actually shine on the road again and I don’t bottom out with my 4 kiddos in there.

    TLDR: What improvements can I make to my Pathfinder to improve towing performance (powertrain and suspension)? I purchased my 2007 Pathfinder primarily for towing my 4,500 lb. camper. Over the 8 years we've owned the Pathfinder and the camper, the camper has slowly gained weight (by adding...

    Hi, I am purchasing an AlumaCraft 165 CS. Approximate weight of boat/trailer is 2,000lbs. I will be towing with a 2016 FWD Pathfinder SL with factory tow. 1. Will I have any issues towing with standard hitch? 2. Should I have a weight distribution hitch installed instead? Thanks!

    Hello, I have a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum with tow package. I'm getting conflicting information as to whether or not I need to install an electric brake control. Some people say yes I need to install one and that it's easy, plug and play. However, I can't seem to find the plug anywhere...

    We have a 2013 Pathfinder SV with 120k miles and are needing to replace our tires. We have been towing a 3800lb travel trailer over the past year with Continental Cross Contact but am wondering if we need a more robust tire for our towing needs. We tow a few times a month, no more than 4...

    Hello everyone. I currently have a 2017 fwd model. Bought it a couple of years ago put 40k miles without issues. I recently bought a snowmobile and looked at upgrading to a pick up but the market right now is insane so I'm going to upgrade to another pathfinder with 4wd for the snow. I'll be...
  12. R52 Transmission
    Hi all! Just bought a 2015 Pathfinder S and have some questions. First off I obviously did not do my research as I was not aware of the transmission issues. Previous owner traded up at the Nissan dealer for a newer pathfinder. I then came along and bought it from dealer. I intend to use the...

    Has anyone used the Husky Centerline TS weight distribution family of hitch’s with their pathfinder? Thoughts? Looking at 32216 400lb to 600lb limit. Going to be towing 4,000lbs, tongue weight will be 500lbs on vehicle.
  14. R52 Transmission
    Hi, I saw in this post ( small radiator in front of front tire???) someone ask a question if a fan on the transmission cooler can help for towing a travel travel around 4000 pounds dry, but no answer. I have the same question since a few months. What do you think? When we running on a highway...

    Hey there, we have a 2018 PF, and are about to purchase a Jayco Flight West 174BH. It's just under 22', with a dry weight of 3,075lbs. They are going to install a total tow kit package as well. A bit nervous as to how our PF will pull it though. Any input or experiences?

    Just purchased a used Starcraft Pop-up Camper to pull behind our 2017 Pathfinder. Dry weight 3440. Overall weight of the trailer does not seem to be a problem, but this camper has a very heavy tongue weight. Just had a weight distribution hitch installed, which raised the rear 2" and smooths the...

    I have a 2017 Pathfinder Platinum and it says I can tow up to 6,000 lbs. Does anyone tow a travel trailer with one and have any recommendations for what not to/what to do? We have not yet purchased a trailer but need to know what to consider.

    Hi everyone, I've been reading lots of posts in this forum, researching on the internet, calling NIssan and of course the dealer, but I still can't find the definitive answer to my question: Does the PF of this generation have heavy duty alternators, transmission cooling across the trim lines...

    I have a 2015 Nissan Pathfinder SV that is FWD. I am thinking of buying a fishing boat, but before I make the purchase I want to make sure I won't have issues getting off the boat ramp. The boat I am looking at has a combined weight of roughly 2500 lbs. Has anyone experienced issues getting...

    I'm planning on cross country move with 6'x12' cargo trailer from u-haul. My estimated mileage I would be traveling is around 2200 miles, from Oklahoma to Seattle. Do you think my pathfinder can handle this long trip with trailer in this spec? What is the max cargo weight can I comfortably...
