Asked by CornerBrook Sep 30, 2016 at 09:55 AM about the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder SL 4WD

Question type: General

Is it safe to leave the 2016 Pathfinder in Auto mode all winter or will this cause unnecessary wear on the vehicle. My wife will not want to shift the mode depending on the conditions so I would like to just pop it in Auto and leave it until spring. Thanks.
