Complaint Number: 10344762 Incident Date: February 1, 2010 Date Added to File: July 22, 2010 Description of the Complaint: The contact owns a 2007 nissan pathfinder. Nissan is unethical, and will never have an opportunity to rip me off again. The vehicle then slowed to only 40mph, and we barely got the car off the hwy. I haven't done it yet. I was not told when I purchased the car that it should not be driven on dirt roads because the canister clogs.
After filling the fuel tank, the contact noticed that the fuel gauge would not register a correct reading of fuel in the tank. I contacted the dealer who advised me this was common in the Pathfinder and it would cost 400 dollars. I hear it is a fairly common problem. I will be writing Nissan about my issues with this product. They truly have a problem with their fuel sending unit why don't they cover all bad fuel sending units? When the contact retrieved the vehicle, she was informed that the fuel line was repaired, but she began smelling gasoline a few weeks later.
Service engine light is still on. The failure mileage was 74,000 and current mileage was 74,250. Not just because of my issue, but because of everything I've read of what Nissan has done to all of us.

Complaint Number: 10272729 Incident Date: June 2, 2009 Date Added to File: June 2, 2009 Description of the Complaint: Filled gas tank completely.
Complaint Number: 10356766 Incident Date: April 14, 2010 Date Added to File: September 21, 2010 Description of the Complaint: The contact owns a 2007 nissan pathfinder. The vehicle was not repaired. Times I would fill up and needle would drop to empty and gas light would be on and over a course of 2 or 3 days, it eventually went off, at times it would still show full, and it would give me the distance to empty until about half way then I just had the dots. Since 1918, Dorman Products has supplied the automotive aftermarket with high-quality replacement parts, hardware and fasteners. They suggested that I take it to the dealer for diagnosis at my expense and to call them back because they might then look at the matter to determine if any action is necessary on their part. Complaint Number: 10346204 Incident Date: April 15, 2010 Date Added to File: July 29, 2010 Description of the Complaint: I bought a used 2007 nissan pathfinder in april 2010.
Html it is a major problem in many vehicles. Two, at their suggestion I called Nissan Factory rep to discuss a factory authorized repair solution, she hung up, when I informed her that I was recording the conversation. The vehicle was not repaired. Read all the other complaints about the same problem. If they could have just wanted us about the radiator that would have saved many of us thousands of dollars and now to find out they need to recall the fuel sensor. More noticeably, I will fill my tank up completely to where it won't accept gasoline. Nissan you are a clear example of what is wrong with big business! To get the light to go off you have to have someone clear the code or disconnect the battery cable.
Two to three days later it goes back to normal. I will never buy a nissan again. I took it to autozone for them to test it. All I can say is that it's amazing that so many people are experiencing this same problem and that recalls have been done for other nissan vehicles with similar problems, yet nothing has been done in this case. Being that this portion of the intersection was under construction, my truck was not able to clear the adjacent lane with on coming traffic.
I cannot fork over 500 dollars to fix the gauge but I never know how much gas I have so obviously that is not safe. I notified Nissan today and was told that there is not an open recall for this problem with my vehicle. The failure mileage was 69,955 and the current mileage was 70,120. Checked different places and a lot of Pathfinders or Nissan trucks have the same problem and it is not covered. We both feel that a manufacturer recall is in order and that nissan corp is putting it's buyers in danger by refusing to have this repaired by the dealer free of charge to the buyer.
I drove home and notice the distance numbers read backward until the needle was on full and it read correctly. The vin was not available. Complaint Number: 10371118 Incident Date: December 17, 2010 Date Added to File: December 17, 2010 Description of the Complaint: Fuel sending unit bad trouble code 0463. It seems to be an ongoing problem. Fuel gauge did not indicate a full tank.
I hope that the nissan company is not this way because peoples lives are at stake driving unsafe vehicles because you don't choose for one 1 day to eat a can of bean. Then check engine light comes on and now will not pass emissions. I purchased a 2007 nissan pathfinder in 2007 and have two canisters replaced. The consumer was informed the recall was only for the 2008 models. This is the same Nissan Pathfinder that had the radiator fluid leaking into the transmission. The service engine soon light is constantly on. On january 23, 2009, the vehicle was taken to the dealer for the odor and they stated that no prior repairs appeared to have been made to the vehicle.
