I'm really sorry to hear that your shimmy hasn't been fixed. I agree that it is VERY annoying. At the time that I was dealing with the shimmy, I was driving 100 miles a day on the highway.
If you still want to try, I heard early on in this shimmy business some other things to try:
1) replace the front bearings
2) disconnect the drive shaft and rotate it 180 degrees (if the vibration stops or lessens, you've found your culprit...if it gets worse, that ain't it) Of course, if your shimmy is completely in the steering wheel, then this isn't it.

I am looking to purchase a mid-size SUV and seriously considering the Pathfinder. I want an SUV that drives smoothly, like a car, but can also trailer a 21.5 boat (2,100lbs, plus engine 300-500lbs and tandem trailer ?lbs) Can the pathfinder handle this? I live in Miami where, as you all know, there are no hills. Everything is flat!!! Please assist

The automatic transmission Pathfinder is rated to tow 5000 lbs; manual trans is rated at only 3500 lbs.. Supposedly, anything over 1000 lbs requires trailer brakes.
With 265 ft-lbs of torque (automatic trans), the Pathfinder should pull your boat quite well. You'll need a Class III towing receiver. Check out http://www.drawtite-hitches.com/mf_3_86.html for a nice towing setup which, for receiver, ball mount, and wiring, will cost you about half of what Nissan wants for their towing receiver.

I have a '99.5 with the older 3.3L motor. I trailer a 21 foot ski boat that weighs around 4500 pounds (trailer, boat, motor, gear, and stuff).
If my 3.3 can handle it pretty well, I'm sure the new motor can handle it just fine.

I just bought a 2001 LE with all the bells and whistles. What kind of gas mileage should I anticipate? I love this truck.

I have the same. Look for around 15-18 city and 18-20 highway with Factory tires/wheels.
