just bought a 2010 LE 4x4 in black and im loving it so far!

im just wondering if this truck has an issue with the engine coolant leaking into the transmission, just trying to be sure this truck will last a good while. and if by this model year they fixed the issue then i wont worry about it right now, not sure. ive just ordered bug deflectors, window covers, and a tow package. for a light utility trailer with an ATV and some camping gear and i want to be sure i dont beat up this transmission too hard. i know this site should be a goldmine of information so i can really make this truck last, looking forward to being part of the community.

thanks y'all from Georgia,

Welcome and you'll find this place becomes addictive there seems to be a great group of individuals here an a wealth of info on everything an anything you find yourself doing either fixing maintaining or upgrading your pu.
I believe that issue is yrs prior to 2011 I cant say you'll have it or not but Nissan gave consumers a extension of the warranty whoopee to me it was with a hefty cost sharing based on your mileage but still better than nothing I guess I found it cheaper taking care of it on my own. I have the 2010 also but did not experience any problems with that before doing the bypass with an additional aftermarket cooler at 35k our pu's already have one outside the rad there are many threads on doing bypass also for for the "MSOD"milk shake of death if your interested a few even listed some part #'s for replacement and the the ones that were subjected to failure or could be affected.
Nor did I experience any failure of it before changing out the oem radiator recently with a aftermarket alternative from csf at little over 85k I checked the transmission line going through oem rad prior to removing by capping one side and putting a vacuum pump on it and it held for over 5min. With the cost what it was I waited to change it though until I was doing a coolant change so at least I saved that I just wanted to alleviate problem best I could for as long as I could. Take a look around there's another cheapo easy one to do it's a rear axle vent mod and just might help save your axle seals down the road also because our axle vents have a tendency to fail then work one way building pressure till your seals fail.
