Greetings fellow pathfinder owners. I purchased my '01 SE in July of 2000. Have put on 11k trouble free miles thus far. Truck is pretty much loaded. Would've gotten an LE except I think it looked a little too blah and am not a big fan of wood trim. SE has a sportier look to it and that is what I was after, probably because I am 20 years old. I got the automatic because of the higher tow capacity than the manual, and the lack of willingness on dealers to go down on price on the 5 speeds because they are hard to get. My only modification has been the installation of a K&N filter at my first oil change. Have been using Penzoil 5w30 and Nissan filters doing my own changes every 3k. I figure clean oil doesn't hurt and doing it myself costs about $8 every few months, not a big deal. I'll probably become a regular poster now that I've found a good board. Talk to you all soon.

I love that blue with the titanium bumbers. Felt a need to introduce myself. Vancouver British COlumbia Canada PF recent owner. Very enjoyable vehicle. 23 years old and my first more expensive vehicle. I had been looking for the right used PF for about a year and finally got the deal I wanted. I have been very happy with it and always concerned about it's mainenance and care. I will be checking these postings, putting in my 2 bits and asking questions that I have no answers to. Look forward to talking to you all.

This is my first post to the page and would just like to say hello. Todd and Stephanie are here with our recent purchase of a 01 LE 2wd in aspen white/charcoal leather. These vehicles are under rated and I am glad to be a part of a group of people that have simlar feelings towards this most excellent vehicle.

Denise and I (Ed) just purchased a 2001 Burnt Cherry colored 4X4 Pathfinder LE with charcoal leather interior. We bought this vehicle for the long haul and believe Nissan was one of only a few manufacturers that have proven that their products last way beyond the payoff point.
I love to perform my own repairs and maintenance to my vehicles and I look forward to sharing information on this forum.

Hi!!! My name is Kevin and my townhall ID is Kmrq. I have 99.5 silver SE PF w/all the options that were available except for the leather package. It has 22,000 miles on it and I purchased it back in July, 99. Also I added some mods....for exterior: side windows reflectors, 3A Blue Fog Lights(these are really good.. very eye catcher!!), ***had PIAA super plasma for my headlights and for the fog lights*** recently replaced it with CATZ ZETA Kit00 HID and H3 Galaxy White Bulb, Polarg's rear turning lights(Hyper White), back-up lights(Hyper White), Hyper White license plate lights. As for my interior: all season rubber floor mats, Hyper White dome lights, Hyper Blue for the personal lights, and a cargo cover. Last mod that I made to PF was clear corners.. I did it myself. Now my PF looks very clean. (also added Hyper White bulbs to it). Well I'm glad that edmunds made a owner's club and looking forward to chat with everyone.

Hi, Just bought an 01 LE and have no problems after 400 miles. Looking forward to many miles of bliss.
Mar 26, 2001 (8:16 pm)
just bought a 2001 pf se. Leaking oil from below where the rear main gasket located. Drains through a hole just (above and behind) the oil pan. Did it for about a week (slow leak). Now it doesn't seem to be leaking. It's only about 2 weeks old. ANY IDEAS !!!!
can this possibly be normal for a new truck to do this ?

Yes iveydude this is very common. The engine seals are dry from the factory
an have to swell and seat to stop leaking. Some engines and trans leak if they
set for a week or month then stop after drove for a few miles also. My older Nissan
with 130k if it sets for a week it might drip 1 or 2 drop of oil if I drive it every day no
drops at all! Hope this helps.....
