A class action has been filed alleging multiple defects in the Nissan Pathfinder transmission. That action references multiple service bulletins identifying problems with the vehicle.
“21. In fact, on January 10, 2013, Nissan sent its dealers Technical Service Bulletin (“TSB”) No. NTB13-002, titled “VOLUNTARY SERVICE CAMPAIGN / 2013 PATHFINDER TCM REPROGRAM.” That TSB stated that “Nissan is conducting this voluntary service campaign to reprogram the Transmission Control Unit (TCM) on certain specific 2013 Model Year Pathfinder vehicles.” The TSB also stated that the reprogramming “will prevent a CVT belt slip condition from occurring and will be performed at no charge for parts or labor.”
24. The TCM reprogram prescribed by TSB No. NTB13-002 did not correct the defect in the Vehicles’ CVT. Rather, the Vehicles’ owners and lessees continued to experience the CVT’s shaking and juddering and the dangerous failure of their transmissions to accelerate properly. Nissan, instead of disclosing its knowledge of the Vehicles’ dangerous defect, concealed that knowledge by issuing the ineffective TSB No. NTB13-002 to allay consumers’ concerns.
