Hello -

New to the forum! Purchased our 13 Pathfinder S on Nov 24th. Since day 1, the speedometer and tach are very jittery. Tach doesn't stay still even at idle. It has a twitch. Same with the speedo -- (ie cruise set at 60, the actual speed stays the same but the speedometer jolts about 3-mph erratically. Anyone else have this issue? I plan on having the dealer check it out sometime, but was curious if anyone else has this going on.

Thanks
Brian

OWNER NOTIFICATION
Dear Pathfinder Owner:
Nissan is committed to providing the highest levels of product quality and customer satisfaction. We believe that our current and future success depends on your continued satisfaction with Nissan. With that in mind, we want to bring to your attention important information regarding your 2013 Pathfinder.

REASON FOR SERVICE CAMPAIGN
Under certain unique driving conditions, the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) chain may slip in some affected 2013 Nissan Pathfinder vehicles. An indicator that the CVT chain has slipped is a shaking or a "judder" from the CVT when accelerating. Continuing to drive the vehicle in this condition can lead to accelerated wear and damage to the CVT. Reprogramming of the Transmission Control Module (TCM) will prevent the CVT chain slip condition from occurring. This is not a safety issue, and the vehicle still meets and/or exceeds all applicable safety standards.

WHAT NISSAN WILL DO
To assure your continued satisfaction and confidence in your vehicle, and prevent possible future damage to the CVT, your Nissan dealer will reprogram the Transmission Control Module (TCM) at no charge to you for parts or labour. The service should take less than an hour to complete, but your Nissan dealer may require your vehicle for a longer period of time based upon their work schedule.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
Nissan encourages you to contact your Nissan dealer at your earliest convenience in order to arrange an appointment. Failure to have this reprogramming performed in a timely manner could result in future damage to your vehicle's transmission. If repair or replacement of the transmission becomes necessary outside of the powertrain warranty period, the resulting repair costs will be at the owner's expense. This service campaign does not extend the duration of your new vehicle limited powertrain warranty.

To ensure the least inconvenience for you, it is important that you have an appointment before bringing your vehicle to the Nissan dealer for service. Please bring this notice with you when you keep your service appointment. Instructions have been sent to your Nissan dealer.
If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact your Nissan dealership or the Nissan Information Centre at 1-800-387-0122.
Thank you for providing us an opportunity to ensure on-going satisfaction with your Nissan vehicle.

Thanks for the reply! However I actually had that fixed applied a couple days ago, which so far has cured the weird shudder I'd feel at about 20 mph. Unfortunately it had no effect On the jittery gauges.
