That would be Nissan's Extroid CVT that uses rollers instead of a belt. The Pathfinder uses Nissan's "traditional" Xtronic CVT that is used all the way down to the Versa. The high-torque Extroid CVT isn't currently used on any US models. Most of Nissan's CVT problems seem to be behind them - around pre-2010-ish.I think Nissan has a pretty spotty record with CVTs. I think Jason Fenske had a video about CVTs that could handle high torque loads, and a Nissan CVT was featured. Maybe they put that one in the Pathfinder, and put some under-engineered CVTs in their smaller vehicles that have been giving people fits.
