2007 Nissan Pathfinder Problems
A whining or buzzing type noise may develop from the timing chain area caused by excess slack in the secondary timing chains. Nissan has issued a service bulletin (NTB09-128) regarding this issue. Replacement of both secondary timing chains and their tensioner shoes will be necessary to repair this concern. As part of this repair, the engine oil and filter should also be replaced.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to a defective charcoal canister vent control valve. The charcoal canister is a component in the Evaporative emissions (EVAP) system. Our technicians tell us a failed vent valve will require replacement.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
The air bag crash sensors located in the front zone may have corrosion buildup due to a high level of road salt exposure. If this happens, the sensor may become inoperative, and the air bag light will come on. If this happens, the air bags will not deploy in a collision. This recall began on January 26, 2009.
RepairPal Expert Overview:
The molded fuel tank can warp, creating interference with the fuel sender float arm and fuel tank. This would cause the fuel gauge never to read below a quarter tank of fuel even if it's empty. If the vehicle runs out of gas in traffic, you might become stranded or get into an accident. Dealers will replace the fuel level sending unit with one that has a modified float arm. The recall began March 22, 2010.

2007 Nissan Pathfinder Reviews
If your 2005 to 2010 Nissan Pathfinder has less than 65,000 miles on it then please read this review.
1. Transmission cooler is in the radiator. It has a good chance of leaking around 70,000 miles or so. When it does your transmission fluid is now mixing with your radiator fluid. New transmission and radiator 5,000 / 6,000
2. Climate controls for 07 pathfinder just don't make sense. What ever happened to keep it simple.
3. Seats are stiff and not great for long distance.
4. Car is very good in snow and has lots of power for towing.
Bought a 2007 Pathfinder to replace a Suzuki XL7 that was in an accident. Glad we did. The Pathfinder, so far, has been great. It has many great features/options and the drive is great. It's quiet and smooth going down the road - not something we experienced from our last SUV. Haven't had it long enough yet to test out the 4 wheel drive. Engine has 53k miles on it and we've recently noticed an engine knock, not sure if this is because we use 87 octane instead of the 91 the manufacturer recommends. I am hopeful we will get many happy years out of this vehicle.
