Having problems with your 2006 Nissan Pathfinder ?

Engine/transmission surges My wifes 08 pathfinder does the same. When sitting at lights the truck gets a slight surge through it every once in a while. This is when at a complete stop, doesn't matter if it is hot or not. Has done it since new but of course the dealer doesn't notice it when they take if for a test drive.
