Looks like the NHTSA investigation is still on going as of 5-18-16.

Fingers crossed something significant comes out of it.

I was just checking the NHTSA website reading the Pathfinder complaints. They are mostly trans/radiator failures (no surprise) with a few fuel sending and delta stroke sensor failures. There are now a lot of 08's listing the trans/radiator problem occurring this year. In earlier threads on this forum, it seemed like the the 08's were rare, but it looks like it's now their time to fail. Many listed failure at the 100-120k mark, so no warranty help for them. To confirm, NHTSA still lists this as an open investigation.

We've had a couple of 2010 models fail, as well, on the forum.

Looks like they aren't investigating anymore.

UPDATE 10/26/16: NHTSA has closed its investigation into this issue. No further investigation will be conducted and no recall will be issued.

NHTSA’s explanation of its decision is as follows:

NHTSA conducted a comprehensive review of data related to this subject. Our report, documenting this review, is available in the document file for this defect petition. It will also be published in the Federal Register.

Of the 2,505 referenced complaints, 638 relate to a potential hazard (unable to maintain speed, no motive power, engine stall) and 1,867 concern customer satisfaction issues including, but not limited to, repair cost, vehicle shudder and shake, and engine overheating.

Taking into account the allocation of agency resources and priorities and the likelihood that additional investigation would result in a finding that an unreasonable risk to highway safety exists, we conclude that further investigation is not warranted and deny the petition.
