We have updated results for the Pathfinder to include owner experiences through September 30, 2010. Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the months since April until the summer or even fall of next year.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2008: 84, about average

2007: 123, worse than average

2006: 35, better than average

2005: 43, better than average

In all cases, and especially the 2007, the sample sizes are small.

Thank you, once again, to everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in February and May. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.

We have updated results for the Pathfinder to include owner experiences through December 31, 2010. Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the months since April until the summer or even fall of this year.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2008: 90, about average, but not far from "worse than average"

2007: 159, worse than average

2006: 24, better than average

2005: 27, better than average

In all four cases the sample sizes are small, even very small for all but the 2005. This might explain some of the huge difference between the first two and last two years but probably not all of it.

Common problems for the 2007 and 2008 include radiator leaks (which can cause transmission failures), the fuel sending unit, and possibly also the steering angle sensor.

Thank you, once again, to everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in May and August. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.

We have updated results for the Pathfinder to include owner experiences through March 31, 2011.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2008: 66, about average

2007: 161, worse than average

2006: 12, better than average

2005: 60, better than average

Sample sizes are small, even very small, for all but the 2005. This might explain some of the huge difference between the first two and last two years but probably not all of it. The problems now affecting the 2007 and 2008 affected the 2005 and 2006 earlier.

Common problems for the 2007 and 2008 include radiator leaks (which can cause transmission failures), the fuel sending unit, and possibly also the steering angle sensor.

Thank you, once again, to everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in August and November. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.

We have updated results for the Pathfinder to include owner experiences through June 30, 2011.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2008: 51, about average

2007: 106, worse than average

2006: 12, better than average, seems too low to be accurate

2005: 85, about average

Sample sizes are small, even very small, for all but the 2005. This probably explains much of the variation from year to year.

We'll have further updates in November and February. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.

We have updated our reliability stats for the Pathfinder (on our redesigned site) to include owner experiences through September 30, 2011.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2008: 99, worse than average

2007: 107, worse than average

2006: 22, better than average, seems too low to be accurate

2005: 90, about average

Sample sizes remain small, even very small, for all but the 2005. This probably explains much of the variation from year to year.

Thank you, once again, to everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in February and May. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.
