Nissan has settled a class action lawsuit involving defective transmissions that caused vibrations in certain Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 vehicles. The cases were filed by car owners. One of the owners, Kenai Batista, has asked U.S. District Judge Robert N. Scola Jr. to grant preliminary approval of the settlement. Nissan North America Inc. has agreed to give all owners and lessees of nearly 200,000 Nissan Pathfinders and Infiniti JX35s/QX60s vehicles (from model years 2013 and 2014) a free, two-year 24,000-mile extended warranty for their transmissions. The owners will also be informed on how to update their vehicles’ software to include detection of the transmission vibration problem, which is referred to as “judder.”

Owners who have had two or more repairs done to their transmissions may be eligible for discounts on future purchases of a Nissan or Infiniti vehicle. Mr. Batista says this settlement will have the “practical benefit of allowing all class vehicles to be permanently repaired for the judder condition, free of charge.”
