Is Your Nissan Pathfinder SUV a Lemon?


Nissan Pathfinders have been subject to recalls for everything from faulty air bags to brakes and the electrical system.

The latest recall, however, is for an air bag issue discovered in the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder. Nissan North America Inc. issued the recall for certain cars manufactured between July 25, 2013 and Sept. 5, 2013 that feature almond interiors.  When these vehicles were built the back side of the instrument panel was not cut correctly and could hinder deployment of the air bags.

Previously, in March 2014, Nissan also recalled certain model 2013-2014 Pathfinders and other models for a software issue that affected deployment of airbags on the passenger side. The Occupant Classification System software was unable to detect if an adult was seated there and thus the airbags would not deploy in a crash.

Another recent Nissan Pathfinder recall affects the hydraulic antilock brakes on cars built from April 18, 2012 to September 20, 2013. The antilock brake system requires increased stopping distance on rough roads and could potentially lead to increased stopping distance or a crash.

Finally, certain 2014 Nissan Pathfinders were recalled in May because lug nuts were improperly tightened on the right-side wheels.


Has your Nissan Pathfinder repeatedly been serviced? Is it spending more time being repaired at the dealership than taking you and the kids to the ball game? If your car is still under the manufacturer’s warranty and it is requiring repeated repairs, you have legal rights under California Lemon Laws that could entitle you to compensation in the form of a repurchase or your money returned.
