What is this discussion about?
Nissan Pathfinder, SUV
#1630 of 8191 full size pathfinder
Mar 06, 2001 (7:52 am)
As a former '94 path owner (gave it to my pop, so it it would stay in the family) I found myself needing a larger vehicle. Because of my cross country travels I bought a 2000 Tahoe (with much hesitation I might add). About a year ago I heard a rumor that Nissan was coming out with a full sized Path that would compete with the Tahoe's and Expedition's of the world. Aside from that little blurb about future production I have heard nothing. Does anyone out there have any new, reliable info on the new full sized path SUB?
#1631 of 8191 01 Pathfinder SE/LE
Mar 06, 2001 (8:23 am)
We have a '98(SE) coming off lease shortly. It appears that the pricing between an SE (with SunRoof, no leather) is within $500+ difference from an LE. So, it would seem the LE is the logical choice. One dealer has told me that the SE's are currently being leased using a factor of .001550 and the LE at .002250. Is this true? Because another dealer quoted me both vehicles at the lower rate, which would appear to be a great deal. Anyone know for sure - I don't want to go for the LE and have Nissan credit kick it back because a dealer messed up.
#1632 of 8191 question for Service manual owners
Mar 06, 2001 (9:04 am)
Thought I'd try here since this seems to be the best place to get the straight answer about Pathys.
Due to the cross threaded bolts from our oil change, I need to retap the bolt holes on the frame for the cover. Does the service manual get specific enough to tell you what size the bolts are in terms of thread diameter? I guess the bolt type might be enough to work with. I am calling the shop today but wanted to see what the service manual has listed.
Thanks in advance.

I searched high and low in the shop manual and never did find a reference to that cover. Not even under the "how to change the oil" section. I guess you're down to removing one of the original bolts to check the size. From when I have changed my oil I seem to remember they are a 10mm head, but that won't help with thread diameter and pitch.

I just purchased a Bronzed Gray LE (everything except Navigation, Entertainment and Tow Hitch) for under $31K. Just wondering if I got a good deal or not. In addition, how come the LE does not come with a power antenna? Edmunds or KBB lists this as standard equipment.

We must like to torture ourselfs. "I just bought an XXX at $YYY. Did I get a good deal?" If you're happy, yes you did! Nothing personal to anyone in particular, as we are all doing this. I'm just amazed we do this to ourselfs!

#1636 of 8191 Antenna and cd changer update.......
Mar 06, 2001 (2:00 pm)
The Canadian PF comes with a power antenna standard. It's probably my biggest gripe with my USA PF...and I'm sure others will agree with me. It really doesn't bother me that much though.....not nearly as much I had thought before buying it anyway.
All the other good stuff on the PF make the lack of a power antenna a little easier to live with. It would have been nice though:)
Just called my local Nissan dealer to check on the status of my newly ordered cd changer (I was having the dreaded ERR 2 problem). It came in today (so they said?) and I'm getting it installed tomorrow afternoon. It took between 4 and 5 weeks for the changer to show up at my dealer......just in case anyone else is waiting on their cd changer, you can probably bet on it it taking at least 4 weeks or more to come in.
My PF is all dry now, the little bucket of Damp Rid worked pretty good...but I don't think it got very wet in the first place. Thanks again for those here on the board who mentioned this product.
Have a good week everyone!
#1637 of 8191 locked out!
Mar 06, 2001 (2:01 pm)
It happened to me too on my '99 while the engine is idling. I got out of the truck, closed the door but didn't hear any "cluck" noise indicated the locks were engaged. I guessed I touched the lock button while stepping out. I had to wait 3 hours before my fiance' could get out of her work and bring the spare from home. Yes, The remote didn't work while the engine was running, had to use the key.
Guess what the milage is for a '99 Pathfinder going 0 mph? About 2.5 gallons.
Huge lesson learn, always use the key fob to lock the doors ever since.
Enjoy your truck...

You didn't say if you had a 4x2 or 4x4. Was that out the door price or purchase price? Don't you just love the color Bronzed Gray! My PF is the same color...it's one of the reason's why I choose the PF over the 4Runner...silly me.
#1639 of 8191 Pricing and Antenna

To All: If you have to ask if you got a good price (after the fact), it really means you didn't do your homework before you bought. As David pointed, might as well relax and enjoy the ride now!
I still can't figure out why they stopped (that's right, stopped) using a power antenna on the USA PF (especially the LE). I loved that feature on my '97 PF SE w/BOSE.
