I brought my 1997 pathfinder to Nissan and they told me that this happens all the time when you reach a certain km. What it is is a small valve at the back of the transmission that does not close properly when the engine is cold. That small valve needs to be replaced, but the problem it's way at the back so having your transmission completely redone is a better way to go.

This valve does not close the pressure cannot build up and you cannot go into reverse.... what you can do if it's just starting to do this... try putting it in drive then reverse or warming up the car before taking off or what Nissan told me which is really stupid..... park the car in backwards....
