Questions About 2012 Nissan Pathfinder’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Nissan? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Nissan? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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? Maintaining your Nissan Pathfinder transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
