welcome to the forumThe Machinist wrote:I just bought a 2006 SE 4x4 with 76.5k miles this week. I got to take it on an extended test drive before I bought it. It was fine for the first 5 miles or so. Then I started getting some slipping and jarring into gear. I already knew about the transmission failure issue. One of my friends has a 2007 and his went out twice. Evidently they only replaced the transmission the first time, so it died a few thousand miles later.
So I talked to another friend who is a service writer at the dealership and he confirmed that it is under the factory warranty extended to 80k for this particular issue. The technician who serviced it before they put it up for sale said it didn't have any issues when he drove it, but I'm thinking it never got warmed up enough when he took it out, since it drove fine for me for the first few miles.
I am taking it in on Tuesday to have the tech drive it and experience how bad it is. I feel a little crazy for buying it, but the service writer assures me that it is all covered. He even told me not to bother buying the extended warranty, since it looks like everything will be fixed before I'm out of factory warranty.
So, can I trust it if the transmission and radiator are replaced? From what I have been reading, it sounds like the same issue could come up again down the line. Should I go back for the extended warranty that will cover me up to about 100k? Should I do the bypass once it is out of warranty?
Very nice truck otherwise. I was so happy I sold my wife on the Pathfinder. She really wanted an Acadia or a Pilot.
