#7473 of 8189 2004 Pathfinder
Jun 20, 2004 (6:01 am)
Just purchased my SE three days ago....couldn't be happier....got a deal I was comfortable with $200 over invoice less the rebate - in Cleveland Ohio.
Spent several months comparing the 4Runner and the Pathfinder - the 4Runner just wasn't as comfortable and the local Toyota dealers weren't cooperative with my 2000 Maxima trade...almost like it was beneath them to deal on a Nissan.
The Pathfinder is much more comfortable with a more attractive dash and it handles great. Smoother transmission than any other SUV that I test drove.
I almost wonder why I spent so much time deciding....but it was worth the wait (especially with the rebate!!!!)

I'm about to purchase a 1999 Pathfinder XE from my aunt, 70k miles, well maintained. Not familiar at all with the Pathfinder, my parents have a Quest that they love. Any common problems, recalls, etc that I should expect from this year model, or the Pathfinder in general?
Any help is appreciated, and thanks.

Recently I found the same as some early post said that higher octane gas gives lower MPG. I use 87 the most, and my driving pattern is pretty much the same everyday. One tank ago I used 91 just for fun. It was not by much but I could easily tell I got lower MPG. This tank is 87 again and is still about half full, and I already see MPG is up again...

I have been looking at 04 PF's and would get an LE but I just can't get passed looking at the fake wood trim on the interior every time I get in the truck, sorry its just not my taste.
So my question is has anybody every cover it with something else or removed it ? I know I can get an SE but dealer is offering an LE the way I want it and my only real objection is the fake trim. Any ideas.
I have researched trim kits but they have 50+ pieces and are stick ons and don't think they would last. Anybody have any experience with these kits?
Thanks in advance

I'm not sure if getting QX4's real wood pieces is a good idea. I saw many stick-on wood pieces, and the best I could say is they are not good enough. I can easily see some gaps, or they are elevated too much...

you can always get a trip package like carbon fiber, or solid plastic...go to an auto customizing shop..they should have tons of the stuff around.

I just purchased a 2004 LE Plat 4X2 Pathfinder yesterday and was VERY surprised how quick they came down in price. Within 5 minutes, and was $200 below Dealer Invoice, and negotiated another $200 off so they wouldn't have to detail it for me. All together, I got mine for $400 below Dealer Invoice + $2,500 rebate.... A great price for a truck with the features being offered.
I only had a few reservations...
Getting a last year model: I really think the 04 looks better than the 05, but I'm sure the value will drop faster anyway.
I too hard a hard time with the fake wood: But I found that the wood offered with the tan interior package seemed to be better looking... maybe because it looks less like "fake wood trying to look like wood", and more like detail work.
Either way, if your looking to buy a Pathfinder.... GO FOR IT! The price is never going to be better!
#7481 of 8189 Lookng to get a hitch on my 2004 4X2 LE....
Jun 28, 2004 (6:37 pm)
I need to get an "after market" hitch put on my new 2004 4X2 PathFinder. I live in FL (relatively flat), and intend to use it to tow a flat trailer every now & then for misc stuff...
I'm not sure what the recommended towing capacity is, but I understand I have two options: a Class II, and a regular hitch. Any advice on one, or the other?
