Its 2007 Model Pathfinder had two variants: a 4-litre V6 version which provides 266 horsepower and a 2.5-litre engine that provides 166 horsepower.

1) Constant Vibration in Gear Shifting
The Nissan Pathfinder introduced in 2007 had an extremely low transmission life. After only a couple of thousand miles, it would start displaying symptoms of transmission failure. While the transmission was shifting gears, there was severe vibration within the transmission. This could be felt throughout the car. Normally this vibration could be felt when the gears would down shift, but there have been quite a few instances where vibration was experienced while accelerating.
2) The Vehicle Does Not Warm Up While Idling
When a vehicle is started, it needs to warm up. Due to the design flaw in the transmission of the Pathfinder, the CUV wasn’t able to warm up its engine. This issue prevented the vehicle from performing at its full potential, resulting in poor performance.
3) Gears Stall While Shifting
Another common issue with the Pathfinder’s transmission was the stalling of gears. Often while accelerating, the gears would not up shift. The driver had to let go of the accelerator and then depress it again for the gears to shift.
The cause for these problems was a simple design flaw. The radiator for the 2007 Nissan Pathfinder had a weak radiator. When the weak radiator cracks, it can allow for the coolant to mix with the transmission fluid, hence causing transmission damage.
When transmission problems like these occur, there are several repairs that may be necessary — from a transmission repair to rebuild and possibily installing a new radiator. Once done, an external transmission cooler should be installed to prevent the coolant from mixing with the transmission fluid.
