#1390 of 8191 CD Player Irritation
Feb 20, 2001 (7:53 pm)
I have been the proud owner of a 2001 Pathfinder LE since Aug. 2000, but today I am ticked off. I have been very happy with my rig thus far, but I had a rotten experience today which has left me irritated to say the least. I had one CD in my player, and to the best of my recollection had listened to it all the way through two times. When I attempted to eject it, I got an ERR 2 message, and I haven't been able to use the CD player since. I finally got around to taking it in, and my local dealership attempted to correct the problem. They were unable to get the CD out, and to make matters worse they produced a memo (From Nissan or Clarion) which states that this has been a fairly common problem due to human error. They are claiming that people are improperly loading CD's when the red light on their player is on. My contention is that the CD could not be improperly loaded if I listened to it. My local dealership said that all they could do was to order a new player (at my cost) and I would have to take up my concern with Clarion. What???? I am extremely ticked off. What good is a warranty if the dealership can pull this kind of nonsense? I should add that I bought my PF out of the area because I got a much better deal elsewhere. I know this should not matter. I am looking for suggestions. I haven't been on this message board in months , so I don't know if anyone else has had this same problem. Help!!

Assuming you mean 4WD LE with all opts but Nav...that's an invoice of 33,022. Your price of 32,400 (assuming that includes 4.5% tax and lic/reg and there are no other charges) is 30,766 before tax & lic/reg which is $2,256 below invoice. I guess they're giving them away now.

I got all the capacities from meca2's posting #811. I think #811 should be in the FAQ. Thanks to both of you.-AW

Mbunting...any update on your CD changer replacement? cause?
I really don't want this to happen and wonder what circumstances cause this, unless it's simply that some players are defective.
I don't undersdtand the 'human error' bit about loading CDs when the red light is on...how does one do this? As I recall, the light for any one (or more) of the six slots is red to indicate that a CD is loaded in that slot. Solid green for a slot means that slot is playing. To load a CD, you press the button of an empty slot, its green light starts flashing and when the 'wait' msg turns to 'load', you put in the CD. It seems that you can't put a CD in at any other time. Pressing the button of a slot showing red makes that slot play. Sounds like they're BSing you big time. I would contact Nissan NA directly.

Will Nissan and/or Infiniti make a larger model than the Pathfinder/QX4? Where can I find info on this?

I spoke with a dealer in the Los Angeles area today who said the 3.9% will continue through March and he has seen it advertised (LA Times or other local paper.) I was feeling the same pressure to buy that you are but figure with all the good deals I've seen things probably won't change much in the near future.
Please re-check the 3.9% through March with another source or email me and I'll give you the contact info of the dealer who told me this. I don't want you to miss out on a good deal because there is always a chance that I was misinformed.

I'm considering the PF for my next vehicle, but a few, and I stress a few, posts regarding the AWD spin-outs have me concerned. I'm not a 4WD expert, but why not just stick with the 4WD high and not worry about any changes (mix of ice/snow)in road conditions. Although, I would think that we would hear of more spin-outs from other makes AWD vehicles. What am I missing??

Regarding your 4.5% sales tax....
I talked to a dealer and they said the sales tax in VA for autos is 3.2%.
Not sure why its lower than the retail sales tax (4.5%) though??

I think pespringer/Nissan/Clarion is referring to the red light on either side of the cd insertion slot that turns green when it's OK to insert the CD (along with the message on the display).
