Nissan Motor Co (Australia) Pty Ltd — Nissan R52 Pathfinder Hybrid MY2019
What are the defects?
The CVT hose from the radiator to the oil warmer may have been installed in reverse orientation.
Due to stress from straightening, the CVT oil hose may crack and leak. This can result in loss of power, fluid puddles under the vehicle or smoking when the CVT oil comes into contact with high temperature surfaces.
What are the hazards?
If a leak occurs and oil sprays directly onto the hot exhaust manifold, this could result in a vehicle fire. This can increase the risk of serious injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.
What should consumers do?
Nissan will contact affected owners in writing. Consumers will be advised to contact their Nissan Dealer to arrange inspection, and if necessary, replacement of the hose assembly. The inspection and replacement will be at no cost to owners.
For further information, consumers can contact the Nissan Customer Service Centre on 1800 035 035 (Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 6pm AEDT).
