You are in the Nissan Pathfinder
What is this discussion about?
Nissan Pathfinder, SUV
May 03, 2002 (8:25 am)
Good morning, campers
I got my SE last week, second Pathfinder in our household; we have a 2001 LE that convinced me to get this thing after owning Hondas forever. My daughter's boyfriend bought a 2002 Xterra the same day I got this, so I think it's safe to say we're pretty well Nissaned up at this point.
Haven't noticed the brake problem on this one or on our LE over the past year. In fact, that LE has been the best all around vehicle I've ever dealt with, which is why this new blue baby is parked outside. I'm looking forward to participating in this list!

With two Pathy's in the house, you'll be especially "well-qualified" to participate too. Welcome!

#5078 of 8191 weight on roof rack
May 03, 2002 (12:50 pm)
Anyone know how much weight I can put on the roof? I'm planning a long drive this summer and will attach a cargo carrier on the roof rack to accommodate 18 cu. ft. of space. I just don't know how much weight I can out up there. I looked in the manual but did not find any info. If someone else sees something on the manual, or any documentation, I would appreciate it.

We have a Yakima and I've had a little over 200 lbs. on it w/o any problems. I don't think I'd feel comfortable with more than that (maybe 250?). It probably has more to do with the crossbars vs. the rails as both the Yak and factory bars attach to this.

The Canadian models appear to have a plastic rack, with the weight capability indicated on the rack. I removed mine, and bought Locking Railriders for the roof rails, and install my Yakima system, which is said to be good for at least 165 lbs. I remove the rack when not in use, and get the benefit of no wind noise.

Hey, here are links to all of the Edmunds PF Message Boards in case anyone is interested. I'm hoping to generate some interest in the other boards besides the Main Comment Area:

It says the new pathfinder requires premium fuel. How "required" is it? Almost every car I've owned said premium fuel but worked fine, albeit less powerfully, on regular fuel.
#5085 of 8191 shield on underside of 2001 PF
May 05, 2002 (10:05 pm)
Hi Folks -
I remember a while back, there was a discussion about a shield that needed to be removed to get at the oil filter.
I haven't crawled around under the PF (much), so I'm wondering if this shield is the one that's at the front (can be seen from the front, starting at about under the front bumper and is at an angle), or if there's another one.
Mine only has the one in the front. The PF looks sort of exposed on the bottom, so I'm wondering if I'm missing another shield or not.
Just curious. Thanks!
