I had a 2006 Pathfinder LE 4x2 V6 and it had automatic HDC. I lived in FL, but we would go to the GA mountains and while cruising mountain roads I could be going 55 or so and lightly depress the breaks and then the truck would hold that speed downhill until I hit the gas or breaks more. It was truly a joy to drive in the mountains.

I got a 2011 Pathfinder LE 4x4 V6. Now I am in Colorado where I really need it and this feature is no longer here. I looked through both manuals and it is definitely not there in the 2011 manual.

Is that what everyone is talking about in this thread?
I have an 06 LE 4X4 and I know what you are talking about, but that's not HDC. That's just the programming of the transmission and it is adjustable if you have the proper scan tool, but I'm not sure if it is on the 2011. HDC will have a switch for it and is only on the OR models.
