#4210 of 8191 re: US vs. Canadian

There is nothing in the manual about not being able to transfer the warranty. My local dealer's service dept even did it for me. Or you can call Nissan and they will send you a form. I had a small warranty item done on my Canadian Pathfinder at the dealer with no problem at all.
When you buy in Toronto you will get an Ontario title with your name on it. That, along with the Customs docs will get you registered in your state.
The vehicle specs are the same. Except for the nice additions you get in Canada like All-mode 4x4 on the automatic trans SE and a power antenna that you can't get at all in the US.
I agree with yride that US dealers are miles away from being able to meet the Canadian prices (like about $4000). Knowing that they are losing sales might make some dealers cry to Nissan. But on the grand scale of the whole US, a few dozen sales a year lost to Canada doesn't even register on the chart. If you buy in Canada, explain to the salesguy that you just couldn't pass up the deal and give him a $50 gift cert for dinner (I would have suggested $75 except he lied to you about the warranty). That's as much commission as he would have made on a leftover 2001 sale.
And don't forget that new Path from Canada would be a new 2002, not a used 2001. I imagine that in a few years the resale on being a year newer with lower miles might be better than having nav and ent.
#4211 of 8191 keyless remote...

I had the same problem with my remote. My local Nissan dealer replaced the old remote with a new one on the spot after I demonstrated its irratic behavoir. Make sure to bring your other remote so the dealer can re-program that remote with the new one.
#4212 of 8191 keyless remotes...

I don't think mine are broken but I do find that I have to hit the unlock button about 5 times to get all the doors to unlock and sometimes have to press lock numerous times to get it to lock. It's frustrating when previous vehicles responded to each push of the button.

I would respectfully disagree that something is not wrong with your remotes or the receiver. Mine works flawlessly, and from long distances too.

I have noticed that I have to hold our buttons down for a bit longer than on other remotes. But it still works 100% of the time.

01 BEIGE LE 4X2 WITH AROUND 25K MILES. I TOO HAVE TO PRESS THE REMOTE NUMEROUS TIMES TO GET ALL THE DOORS TO UNLOCK. IF THAT'S ALL THAT'S WRONG, I'LLL LIVE WITH IT!!
#4216 of 8191 LEFT ELBOW REST FOR TOP OF DOOR
Nov 20, 2001 (8:30 pm)
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU ALL BUT THE ONLY THING THAT'S KIND OF UNCOMFORTABLE WITH LONG TRIPS IN THE PATHFINDER IS THE DISCOMFORT
IN MY LEFT ELBOW FROM RESTING IT ON THE TOP OF THE DOOR FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME. SOMEONE SHOULD INVENT SOME SOFT OF CUSTOM SOFT PADDING FOR UP THERE SO THAT ONE'S ELBOW IS COMFORTABLE. OTHERWISE, WHAT A GREAT TRUCK. DROVE FROM ST. PETERSBURG TO FT. LAUDERDALE ON I75 A LOT LATELY. TRUCK DOES 95 MPH SO EFFORTLESSLY ACROSS ALLIGATOR ALLEY.... IT FEELS LIKE 55 MPH!! SO SMOOTH AND POWERFUL. WOULD LIKE TO TEST THAT BMW X5 THOUGH AND COMPARE.

The back of my remote clearly states:
ONCE: DRIVER DOOR
TWICE: ALL DOORS
If it's not operating like that, something is definately wrong. I've been using mine for over two years and I've never had a problem although the range has decreased as the batteries have wore down.
#4218 of 8191 UPPERCASE IS LIKE SHOUTING!

Just a comment on netiquette: many people view posts typed completely in uppercase like shouting and some find it both distracting and hard to read. Occasional caps are for EMPHASIS!

I too have the remote problem (2001LE). Sometimes it works on the 1st try other times it takes 2 or 3 (no matter how long you hold it down). I gotten into the habit of pushing the button several times all the time. My wife and I switch remotes often and it happens with either one. Leads me to believe it's the receiver. If you try it over and over again it will start to work just fine. This leads me to believe that if I take it to the dealer they will not be able to reproduce and therefore unable to fix. After hearing some others here it seems like Nissan might be aware of a problem so I think I will give it a shot anyway. If anyone gets this fixed please post.
