Anyone have Nissan Pathfinder trans problems?

Have you had many problems with the 2006 Pathfinder or with the coolant mixing in the trans or bad transmission???

It’s not important if I had the problem, or others did. This forum is to help you with your problem. And what exactly is that?

I have 2006 Pathfinder with 162K miles on it and transmission still works like new. Radiator was replaced with a new design preventing coolant from getting into a transmission fluid, other than that, these vehicles are quite reliable if serviced regularly.

What problem your Pathfinder has, @Javi20?

It’s a common problem with automatic 2005+ Pathfinders and Frontiers with the 4.0L V6. I don’t have either, but I’m aware of the problem.
