Nissan North America is recalling approximately 3,065 model year 2013 Pathfinder vehicles equipped with a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

In the affected vehicles, the internal oil cooler (ITOC) hose may detach from the cooler due to inadequate clamping force, allowing transmission fluid to leak.

The loss of transmission fluid could cause the transmission to function improperly and the vehicle to stop accelerating, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recalled Pathfinder vehicles were manufactured from April 18, 2012 through October 3, 2012.

Owners of the affected Pathfinder vehicles will be notified by Nissan, and dealers will install an oil hose repair kit, free of charge.
