2011 Nissan Pathfinder Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Nissan's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Nissan tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Pathfinder towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Pathfinder is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Pathfinder transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2011 Pathfinder’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Nissan. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
