Nissan Australia has recalled the 2019 Pathfinder Hybrid to fix a problem with the CVT hose.
“The CVT hose from the radiator to the oil warmer may have been installed in reverse orientation,” the company says in its recall notice.
“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.”
If there is a leak and oil sprays onto the exhaust manifold, there’s a risk of a vehicle fire.
- A total of 11 vehicles are affected by the recall
- Affected vehicles were sold between April 30 and June 18, 2019

Nissan Australia will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free fix with their nearest dealer.
