New Update

So they examined the car and determined the 4WD controller board needs to be replaced. Thats why the 4WD came on when it got cold outside. But that didn't solve my issues of shutters and sluggishness at 35mph, nor does it solve the loud engine roar? Well they said they want to replace this first, then test drive again. They also told me that they extended the powertrain warranty until 84K vs the 60K that is standard. This is for 2013 and 2014 only.

Issue Resolved?

Did that fix your problem? I have a 2015 Pathfinder S 4WD. I started experiencing the rumble strip thing at around 112,000 miles. It’s over 120,000 now. I experience it at 1000 - 1200 RPMs (usually around 18 - 22 mph). I have been hoping it just needs plugs. Last time I was in for service, I was going to have them replaced. But they said I would have to have an appointment.

I still have the sluggish problem around the same speed. Once in a while I get the rumble strip sensation. ANd I"m still getting about 19mpg combined. My gauge has never shown a number larger than 20, even on long trips.
