Sorry in advance if there is an official thread on this topic. Below is the list on my '22 Platinum. Please share your gripes. Perhaps we can help each other out by providing solutions.

-driver's side mirror: noticeably vibrates too much when driving on the highway. I'm sure a visit to the dealership may resolve the issue. I'll bring it up during my first oil change.

-driver's side window: noticeably rolls up slower than any other windows. Once again, next visit to the dealership should resolve this since something similar happened to my '19 Pathfinder where they sprayed something on the window.

-panoramic sunroof: tilt up feature is a joke, at least with mine. You can barely see the opening. Also, I don't like that I have to press the liner opening button twice to open it all the way to the end of the 2nd row.

-I have the AWD version and do miss the option of having it in 2WD version to save some $ on gas. I had this feature in my '19 SL Premium.

-HUD: I guess I still drive mostly with my left hand while leaning a bit towards the center of the car... So the right side of the HUD gets cut off. It's nice that the option allows me to adjust up/down, but not left/right.

-Auto start/stop feature: not a fan. I even disabled it in the menu, but not sure as to why it still acts up at times. I still haven't figured out the reason but maybe someone can chime in. I also saw a message when I had the AC on that it may be off, or something like that. My friend who also recently purchased a new SL said the same thing.

-seat belt warning: OMG. Very annoying. I know I know... it's for safety reasons... but to keep beeping for 2 minutes straight before turning it self off it a bit too much. Miss my '19 where it didn't make any noise at all. At least it doesn't sound as annoying/loud as the recent gen Murano.

-LED interior/back up lights: Really? So Nissan put in LED license plate lights, but couldn't do the rest? I know the interior lights are an optional accessory, but $150 is not worth it. I'll just do it myself by getting some cheap LED bulbs from amazon/ebay, just like I did with most of my cars in the past.

-ECO mode: going back to me trying to save some $ on gas.... I have to turn it to the ECO mode overtime I start the car. Wish it would remember the last mode and leave it there.

-A/C seats: it's a joke, just like my '16 Maxima that I had. I see that for the rear passengers, they left two empty spots so that it'll have that feature potentially available in the future. Don't waste your money unless other features that come with the package is a must have.

-Rear sun shade: they should have put in a plastic liner on the SIDE as well since I can already see a small stretch due to my 3 year old pulling it from the side.

-windshield wiper control: sort of hard to explain but I'll try. I'm just comparing to every car that I've owned in the past and this one is different. So when you click it down once, you have the option to leave the keys option in 'one rain drop' image, all the way to the 'multiple drops'. However, I'm not noticing consistent difference, regardless of the amount of rain and/or my mph. So I'm left with usually using the second click down where it doesn't rest in between each wipe. So

That's all that I can think of for now, but I know that I'll be adding more (only had it for about 4 weeks now). Please understand that my list of things I love about the new Pathfinder far exceeds the list above, but would like to see some options (if applicable) if anyone have any solutions.

Please feel free to add/comment to this post. I look forward in seeing your response.

Also have a 22 Platinum and noticed this on mine too. Must be something due to the way it's installed. I bet they end up releasing a TSB for this since you've now confirmed for me at least, it's a widespread issue as what are the chances that both of ours have excessive vibration on just the driver's side. At this price, they should be auto-dimming too.

-panoramic sunroof: tilt up feature is a joke, at least with mine. You can barely see the opening. Also, I don't like that I have to press the liner opening button twice to open it all the way to the end of the 2nd row.

Yeah, the tilt opening is about an inch overall which is pretty worthless.

-HUD: I guess I still drive mostly with my left hand while leaning a bit towards the center of the car... So the right side of the HUD gets cut off. It's nice that the option allows me to adjust up/down, but not left/right.

The display speed is all the way at the right of the HUD so I see what you mean. Like you, hopefully they can release an update to allow left/right shifting of the display but I doubt it.

-LED interior/back up lights: Really? So Nissan put in LED license plate lights, but couldn't do the rest? I know the interior lights are an optional accessory, but $150 is not worth it. I'll just do it myself by getting some cheap LED bulbs from amazon/ebay, just like I did with most of my cars in the past.

I didn't even know LED interior lights were an option and agree that it makes zero sense since LED bulbs are so cheap nowadays. If I trusted myself to not ruin my headliner, I'd change the bulbs out but am not sure I do. Funny how the ambient lighting is all LED but they couldn't do it to the headliner lights and door lights.

-ECO mode: going back to me trying to save some $ on gas.... I have to turn it to the ECO mode overtime I start the car. Wish it would remember the last mode and leave it there.

Yes, having to change the mode every time you start the car is annoying.

-A/C seats: it's a joke, just like my '16 Maxima that I had. I see that for the rear passengers, they left two empty spots so that it'll have that feature potentially available in the future. Don't waste your money unless other features that come with the package is a must have.

AC seats really aren't air conditioned per se, but there's a fan that blows through the perforations in the seat. They actually work better when you're aren't blasting your AC at full speed with temperature set to low. Try setting your temperature for somewhere around 68 and lowering the fan speed, then you will notice the cooled seats working well for you I bet. Our 19 Armada was the same way and every other car I've had with cooled seats was also the same way (17 Pacifica, 14 Durango). The SL with Premium Package is getting very close to Platinum pricing (especially FWD Platinum) and for that reason alone, I'd recommend going ahead and getting the Platinum as it will have better resale, you get the full digital dash, better looking seats with the quilting, and just a slight step up in premium feel. There's also a couple of other options you get but they escape me right now.

Overall, just like you, they are minor annoyances and no vehicle is perfect. Not even the overpriced/hyped "holy grail" of 3-row suvs the Telluride is perfect, in fact, if you read their forums, it is pretty far from it.

Thanks derek533 for the response. I'll try the different settings to see if the cooled seats actually work the way they're supposed to. I do recall at times when it was really cool so I'm sure it's just a matter of figuring out what works well, just like you mentioned.

In regards to changing the bulbs yourself, they area really easy. Just ensure to get a very thin piece of cloth and a small flat head screw driver to get the clear plastic lenses off. There's a lot of YouTube clips on how to change out the bulbs for the previous generation Pathfinders and that should give you a good idea. I've always changed the bulbs myself and they're worth it. I forgot to add that the dealership wanted $150 PLUS labor for the interior LED bulb upgrade. What a rip off. I can easily spend less than $50 for all the needed LED bulbs and it should only take me about an hour at the most where I'll be spending majority of the time getting access to the reverse lights.

I paid for the L.E.D. package... But the downside is: It doesn't include the sunshade lights(We did ourselves) lights from Amazon and they couldn't do the rear passenger lights. They dealer said the ones in the L.E.D. pack didn't fit.(WTH???) So they ordered new ones,went to the dealer Saturday for install only for them to tell me it's a whole bracket assembly and they wouldn't have time to install. So I'm going BACK in the morning ( Monday).
The L.E.D. lights DO make the interior look pretty cool

CPath23,

Thanks for the response. Would you mind how much you paid for the parts and labor?

Also when you say "rear passenger lights," are you referring to the one by the rear AC/heat vents? Or the one closer to the rear lights by the 3rd row/trunk area?

Referring to the lights by the AC vents. I've been here at the dealer for 5 hours for the installation of 2 LIGHTS!!!!!! TERRIBLE!!!!! If I had known this, I would have left the regular halogen lights in there.

Oh geez. So sorry to hear about your loss in time. I'd be extremely frustrated too. I was going to order the bulbs this week and start replacing them myself. I'll see what they're talking about regarding the rear passenger lights. I already have the reverse LED bulb that I used on the '16 Maxima and hope that'll fit.

What's the issue about those particular lights?

It includes: Center console, bottom door(2), rear/above 3rd row, tailgate...
The rub was the 2 rear passenger lights.
They said they wouldn't fit so they ordered a bracket for them. I spent 6 hours in the dealership!!!! They took down the headliner for this. The technician was unprofessional. No charge because I was going to order with the truck. But it looks really cool

Thank you! .I wanted to order and install them myself but now I'm worried of the 2 rear passanger. Sucks you had to go through all that should just be plug and play.

I seriously don't know why/how we ended up wtih incandescent lighting on the interior while the rest of the car is cutting edge. Huge oversight IMO considering the price of LEDs is almost as low as incandescents. It maybe would've added what, $10 total to the price? Who wouldn't have paid that additional on a $40-$50K car?

Really want to swap mine out but I'm not dropping my headliner, no way.

No need to drop headliner. I replaced all interior lights with LED's that I had left over from another car. Just need to pop the light covers, pull out the incandescent, stick in the LED, and snap the cover back in place. Just make sure the LED's you use are CANBus compatible so you don't annoy the computer. Took about 30mins tops to do the entire car. Only issue is with the festoon bulb in the 3rd row. If I recall correctly, it is 25mm (not very common), closest I had was 28mm so had to spread the contacts an extra 3mm to fit. Also, pretty much any festoon LED's found online will be too bright for 3rd row. What I did was angled the bulb so 30-40% of the light is directed into the fixture/housing/headliner. That worked well for me. Liftgate/cargo light is festoon as well, don't recall any issues with sizing. Brightness is no issue here either as I like the cargo area bright to make it easier to load stuff at night. Good luck.

You by chance have a list of what bulb sizes are needed and how many?

one of my dislikes is that the Sirius XM display on the digital dash doesn't display the song title or artist name. it tells me the preset number, station name, and then below it has the huge logo of the station. instead of having the station name twice, why not have the song title, artist or both?

Are you sure your not missing some setting? I can not believe a 2022 vehicle would not display song/artist for the satellite radio. I have never seen this on any other cars that I can think of. That would be crazy to me.
