I have a 2017 pathfinder, 4wd, bought new in january 2017. About 23k miles in it.

Last nite it completely shut down on me while i was driving on a busy 4-lane road. No warning, just stopped. I was thankfully able to barely coast to the shoulder without incident. Full tank of car, plenty of oil, battery fine.

Car would start and shut down, radio and lights and air conditioner would run but car just couldnt seem to get gas to the Engine. Had to get it towed. Tow truck driver was a mechanic for 9 years and thought it might be an issue with the fuel delivery system.

Nissan dealer can't find anything wrong today. Computer not returning any codes. I told them to try harder... i dont feel safe putting my kids back in that car.

Anyway else have this situation and what happened?

On the previous generation of Pathfinders, there were similar occurrences due to faulty cam position sensors. They would fail when they got hot and cause a no-spark condition and not always trigger a code. Without being able to get a trouble code or be able to duplicate the problem, the dealer's hands are tied as far as doing anything under warranty as they couldn't guarantee that replacing those parts would fix the problem and open themselves up to further litigation if the vehicle owner every takes them to court under lemon laws. Of course, all you want is to have confidence that your vehicle doesn't break down on you, but that is the problem with intermittent issues that don't provide the mechanic with any information to go on to fix it.
