0-60 acceleration time?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I had to rebuild my automatic transmission and I am going to take the car back from the mechanic these days.

I had some test drives already and I think that it acceleration is slower than before. The mechanic says that for him it is ok.

Do you have any technical specs where I can find 0-60 mph acceleration time? He says it should be more than 9 secs but I think it was supposed to be around 7 secs.

The Pathfinder is: 2003, 3.5 V6 LE 4X4, 240 pwh.

 

Also how it should react for kickdown (gas pedal depressed to the floor)? Lets say you drive 80km/h (4-th gear) and then you depress to the floor. Should it reduce gear to 2-nd or 3-rd?

Mine will hold third until 85+ if held to the floor. It should never kickdown to second going that fast.

 

I have no idea on 0-60. I just drive mine and want it to last.

Did he use genuine nissan fluid? It's worth the extra .75 cents.

I found an interesting page: http://www.nissanreference.com/pathfinder/1996-2004

There is an official brochure for 2002 and on the last page are some numbers. 0-60 mph is done in 9.2 sec, 0-80 mph is done in 17 sec.

 

The car is still in the mechanic shop as I didn't paid yet because I had feeling that something is wrong. I am going to get it back next week but I will take more test drive before I pay.

As for the oil he used Dextrone 6 but Nissan recommendation is Dextrone 3.

 

Do you have any ideas if I can check something specific while driving to make sure that the transmission is working correct?

I just want to add that the brochure from this page I found an interesting page: http://www.nissanref...inder/1996-2004 is really interesting. The numbers I referred are on page 10 and there are much more pages( I just didn't noticed scroll button).

Cool seeing the original commercials. The Pathfinders were off my radar at that time. Only had eyes for the Z family. Been a Nissan guy for life, but only in the last decade had nissan 4x4s.

My '04 will kick down to 2nd gear until around 68mph but it tachs out pretty quick and shifts into 3rd
