Potentially Faulty Brake System Or Downshift Cvt Or Simulated Gearshift System. Details: When Driving In Slow Moving Traffic With The Brakes Partially Applied, The Vehicle Tends To Momentarily Accelerate And Speed Up. Concurrently The Resistance On The Brake Pedal Tends To Decrease, Along With A Visible Down-and-then-back-up Jumping Of Rpm Needle. The Brake Pedal Needs To Be Kept Pressed To Allow The Vehicle To Slow Down. Took Vehicle To Dealership (new Vehicle, With Only 300 Miles), The Technician Noticed The Problem I Had Been Explaining. The Technician Agreed To Speak With The Engineer The Next Day. However, Next Day The Dealership Stated That They Have Never Encountered Such As Issue, And It May Be Simply The Down-shift Of The Cvt Transmission. This Is Unusual In Comparison To Any Other Car I Have Driven. Acceleration Of The Car During The Braking Cycle Is Clearly Odd. Potentially Dangerous Situation When Approaching A Stop Sign Or Slow Traffic Zones Near Schools. Please Investigate.

Vehicle Was Taken Into Shop Because Of Shudder In Transmission And Hesitation From Stop When Applying Accelerator. The nissan Dealer Installed A New Valve Body In The Transmission Which Seemed To Stop The Shudder Until Today When It Has Returned. The Hesitation From Stop Problem Was Not Fixed And I Returned The pathfinder A Second Time To Fix This Problem But Since It Did Not Throw A Code And Could Not Be Duplicated It Was Not Fixed. The Hesitation Problem Is An Itermittent Problem But When It Happens The Vehicle Does Not Move Forward When The Gas Is First Applied For A Second Or Two. I Have Almost Had Two Accident Because Of This Problem When Pulling Into Traffic And The Car Will Not Move When Gas Applied. The Shudder Problem As Returned And Can Be Felt At Around 40mph.

Mileage was 1581 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):5N1AR2MNXFC. Nissan Pathfinder 2015 problem was reported in TONEY, AL. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

Judder Is Found Between 20-25 Miles For More Than 5 Second When Accelerating Smoothly. The Mechanic Recorded The Judder And Sent It To The Engineer. The Engineer At Corporate nissan Told Us That It Is A Normal Thing But Any Car Shouldn’t Have A Judder(especially 2015 Newest Model). A Judder Also Shows In The High Speed, But Not As Much As Slow Sleep. A Judder Also Appears When The Car Slows Down To A Stop. I Have To Wait Until Check Engine Light It Up For Them To Fix The Issue. It Does Not Make Sense When There Is A Record Of Judder But Wait Until Something Happens To The Car.

Mileage was 22000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):5N1AR2MM1FC. Nissan Pathfinder 2015 problem was reported in RENO, NV. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 25 mph.

While Driving Our pathfinder In Stop And Go Traffic, I’ve Started To Notice And Feel A Juddering & Jerking Motion Coming From The Transmission/powertrain Every Time I Depress Or Press On The Gas Pedal At Between Speeds Of 15 To 40 Mph. I Plan To Report This To nissan Along With A Couple More Issues Like The Crackling Sound Coming From The Front Suspension Usually After Reversing Back Out Of A Driveway Then Moving Forward While Slightly Turning The Wheel Back To A Straight Position. Could Be A Bearing Issue, Racking Pinion Or Possibly The Brake Issues That Have Been Recalled. I Will Also Report The Constant Announce Of A Crackling Sound Coming From The Wood Paneling Around Stereo And Air Condition Controls. Last But Not Least The Scary & Visible Shaking Of The Front Hood While Driving At Speeds Of Over 80mph. This Violently Shaking From The Hood Will Certainly Let You Know That If You Go Any Faster Chances Are The Hood Will Fly Off Or Cause Serious Damage To The Vehicle Or Possibly Cause An Accident. There Is No Doubt In My Mind That This Is Issue Is Clearly An Aero Dynamic Flaw. How Can They Not Have Been Aware Of This Possible Serious Safety Issue ?

Mileage was 1 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):5N1AR2MN7FC. Nissan Pathfinder 2015 problem was reported in PACOIMA, CA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 80 mph.
