Re: CVT & Towing

You're not likely to get a response from that person from a 7-year-old thread, but I can tell you that my friend had an R-pod and pulled it with a Lincoln MKX rated at 3500 lbs. You'll have no trouble pulling one with a Pathfinder.

Could also be ball joints. Also make sure the lugs on that wheel are tight.

I'm guessing a warped rotor.

I guess my point was based on what I see, at least for me the 2013-2015 R52s don’t make much of a convincing argument over a similar crossover. Meaning I don’t really see them having a USP over competitor vehicles. The USP is the price. No where else can you get that set of features for the pri...

Understand that the R52 platform is totally different from the Pathfinders that preceded it. If you love your R51, you'll be disappointed owning a R52 in it's current iteration. It's a crossover, not a SUV. I agree that the Terra is probably the best of both worlds and if Nissan has any smarts left,...

Your problem was largely cosmetic. Many 2013 - 2015 owners experienced issues with their CVT transmissions that Nissan didn't acknowledge, forcing lawsuits and some buy-backs. The Rogue seems to be better supported and promoted for some reason, so hopefully you'll get better service on it.

Unfortunately, that is the name of the game with Nissan. You have to be persistent because they figure you'll eventually go away. Hell of a business model, but that's been the experience with lots of R52 owners.

This doesn't appear to apply to the Pathfinder. https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2019/MC-10162976-9999.pdf Nissan sent me an official letter, so I am confused to say the least. so assuming its correct, and mandatory for CA would you get the ECM updated if you lived elsewhere ? Thanks Ian. I would....

Good idea. There is probably some kind of warranty in the contract that says they will fix things within a certain amount of time. Don't delay.

Who did you buy it from, private seller or dealer? I would start there. It certainly sounds like something might have happened to it. I just checked mine and you may be able to remove the two screws and bend the hinge back a bit.

Wow! I'll bet if they replaced the R52 with the Terra in North America, their sales would skyrocket!
