Nissan Pathfinder 2012 FAQs

Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Pathfinder 2012 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Factory-fitted or aftermarket heavy-duty clutch

    If you've done 105,000 km on the original clutch, you've done well, but if it's starting to slip it's getting close to the time it needs to be replaced. The original factory-fitted clutch has done a pretty good job for you, so you could happily fit a new one, but there are aftermarket heavy-duty clutches available and one of those might be more suitable given you plan to do a lot of towing with it.

  • Nissan Pathfinder diesel auto transmission

    The problem relates to the lock-up torque converter. We have had a number of similar complaints, probably more with the Navara than the Pathfinder, but the same nonetheless. We contacted Nissan about it and were told, "the automatic transmission lock-up setting has been set to optimise fuel economy. Once the vehicle hits 60 km/h the driver needs to depress the accelerator further in order to activate a step-down in gear. This setting does not cause the vehicle to stall. In short, activating a step-down in gear on an incline above a speed of 60 km/h simply comes down to certain driving styles."
