Model Highlights

The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder is powered by a 3.5L engine making 260hp. The Pathfinder is rated at 26 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg in the city for 2-wheel-drive models, while 4-wheel-drive vehicles are rated only 1-mpg lower in both environments. Part of this economy is attributable to Nissan's standard continuously variable (CVT) transmission which, unlike traditional automatics, has an infinite number of gear ratios and is consequently always able find the best compromise between economy and power.

With a third row for seating and passenger capacity up to seven, Nissan boasts that the new Pathfinder has best in class front headroom, front foot room and overall interior passenger volume. While the new Pathfinder has an additional 8.4 cubic feet of interior room over the outgoing model, it also makes better use of its interior space, with a flat load floor and second row seats that slides a full five and a half inches to make third-row access much easier. The third row even has a reclining feature, which is uncommon for vehicles of this size.

The 2015 Pathfinder comes in six different trims allowing for lots of flexibility in pricing and features. Base 'S' models come with lots of nice features including attractive 18-inch wheels, tri-zone automatic climate control, a 6-speaker stereo with auxiliary input, keyless entry and a dashboard mounted monitor. SV Pathfinder models add roof rails, automatic headlights, Bluetooth connectivity, a rear view monitor and Nissan's Intelligent Key system. The SL Pathfinder begins to add some serious luxury, featuring leather seating, a remote engine start and a power rear liftgate. It also features additional exterior amenities like fog lamps, heated mirrors and chrome side moldings. SL Premium Pathfinders are equipped with a dual panorama moonroof, a tow hitch and a Bose sound system. The Platinum Pathfinder is the next step up and features 20-inch wheels, a navigation system and climate controlled front seats. The top of the line model is dubbed Platinum Premium and includes pretty much every feature listed above plus a tri-zone entertainment system.

A hybrid powertrain is also available in 2015. Available in SV, SL and Platinum trims, it combines a supercharged 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, a 15-kW electric motor and a lithium-ion battery to make 230 combined horsepower and 243 lb-feet of torque. This drivetrain flows through the CVT as well, making for impressive fuel economy, especially for a 7-passenger sport-utility. The Pathfinder hybrid gets 25 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway in 2-wheel drive trim. 4-wheel drive Pathfinder hybrids still get 25 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.

Safety is addressed in the Pathfinder with dual stage front airbags, side impact airbags, side curtain airbags and a rollover sensor. Preventative safety systems include anti-lock brakes, stability control, traction control and a tire pressure monitoring system. SV-level and better Pathfinders also include a rear view monitor to make backing out of parking spaces easier and safer.

Model News

After a full redesign just a couple of years ago, the Nissan Pathfinder enters 2015 mostly unchanged. However, Nissan have continued to make minor refinements the vehicle over the past couple of years and 2015 is no exception. New available features include a Blind Spot Warning system, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and a hill descent mode. A new option package, the Family Entertainment Package has also been introduced, featuring a DVD entertainment system. In addition, the Xtronic transmission has also been reprogrammed to feel smoother, without compromising fuel efficiency for 2015.

Value Writeup

Between its seating capacity and fuel economy the Pathfinder makes a good value play. While previous Pathfinders competed with truck-like SUVs like the Toyota 4Runner, the 2015 Pathfinder aims instead to compete more closely with crossover vehicles such as the Toyota Highlander, bringing more space and refinement to the market at a slight cost to seldom used off-road capabilities.

The hybrid is rated at 26 combined mpg, impressive fuel economy for any SUV, particularly one that can haul up to 7 passengers.

Mfg's Report Date
JAN 13, 2015


Potential Number of Units Affected

Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 vehicles manufactured August 14, 2014, to November 5, 2014, and 2014-2015 Nissan Rogue vehicles manufactured August 12, 2014, to November 15, 2014. During the assembly process, the front wheel hub assembly fasteners may not have been properly torqued.

The under-torqued fasteners may result in a brake caliper separating from the wheel assembly causing a reduction in braking performance or reduced steering control. These conditions increase the risk of a crash.

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and tighten any loose bolts to the proper specification, free of charge. The recall began February 2, 2015. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.

Dates of Manufacture
AUG 13, 2014 to NOV 04, 2014


Mfg's Report Date
OCT 19, 2015


Potential Number of Units Affected

Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Altima and Pathfinder vehicles, 2013-2014 Nissan Sentra vehicles, 2013 Infiniti JX35 vehicles, 2014-2015 Infiniti QX60 vehicles and 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid vehicles. The affected vehicles received an incorrect occupant classification system (OCS) control unit during a repair. These OCS control units may incorrectly classify the front passenger seat as empty, when it is occupied by an adult.

If the OCS does not detect an adult occupant in the passenger seat, the passenger air bag would be deactivated. Failure of the passenger airbag to deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted) could increase the risk of injury to the passenger.

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will update the OCS software, free of charge. The recall began on November 30, 2015. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

Dates of Manufacture

Mfg's Report Date
APR 25, 2016


Potential Number of Units Affected

Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Nissan Maxima, 2013-2016 Nissan Altima, NV200, LEAF, Sentra, and Pathfinder, 2014-2016 Nissan NV200 Taxi, Infiniti QX60, QX60 Hybrid, and Q50 Hybrid, 2014-2017 Nissan Rogue and Infiniti Q50, 2015-2016 Nissan Murano, Murano Hybrid, and Chevrolet City Express, 2014-2015 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid, and 2013 Infiniti JX35 vehicles. In these vehicles, the front seat passenger Occupant Classification System (OCS) may incorrectly classify an adult passenger as a child or classify the seat as empty despite it being occupied. As a result, the passenger frontal air bag may be turned off and not deploy in the event of a crash.

If the passenger frontal air bag does not deploy as intended in the event of a crash, the passenger is at an increased risk of injury.

Nissan will notify their owners. Chevrolet City Express owners will be notified by General Motors. Dealers will reprogram the Air Bag Control Unit (ACU) and OCS Electronic Control Unit (ECU) in Altima, Maxima, Murano, Rogue, and Sentra vehicles, and replace the OCS ECU in LEAF, NV200, NV200 Taxi, Pathfinder, Infiniti Q50, JX35, and QX60 and Chevrolet City Express vehicles, free of charge. Interim notices were sent to owners on May 31, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-867-7669, Infiniti customer service at 1-888-833-3216 or Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020.
