30 June 2015 2007 Nissan Pathfinder We purchased our 2007 nissan pathfinder on may 21 of this year. today makes 39 days we've had it. on the 32 day we noticed it was having some roughness in the transmission when changing gears. it felt like we were running over really rough roads or rumble strips. it continued to get worse the longer we drove it. then around a week ago i put it in reverse and it continued to roll forward. i immediately drove home to inform my husband. when he checked the transmission fluid it appered to be empty. when he further checked it and clened the dipstick it was a tanish colored liquid that was showing up. i went to google and found that many others with this same or simialar vehicle was having the same problem, and that the problem was a leak in a radiator hose that runs thru the transmisson and leaks fluids back and forth. my husband went to check the radiator and sure enough there is transmission fluid in the radiator and it appeared in the engine as well. so now we have transmisson fluid, water, and antifreeze in our transmisson, radiator and engine. nissan needs to step up and take care of this problem. its clear that this is a flaw in their workmanship. we were told by nissan to bring our pathfinder in for an evaluation and be prepared to pay 2,500.00 dollars. needless to say we are paying a payment already on a vehicle we have had for one month. we cant afford this kind of repair. so now were stuck with a car we cant even drive.
30 June 2015 2012 Ford F150 1/2 Ton - Pickup After starting the truck the brake pedal was very hard like there was no power assist. it only happened periodically and i assumed my brakes were getting old. brakes were replaced and the problem still existed at times. it is now happening more often. just found out about the electric vacuum pump investigation and it sounds like exactly what is happening. have not had it checked out professionally. i looked at it and it appears there is corrosion happening inside the plastic body. dates and mileage noted approximate as i did not document it.
