#626 of 681 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum 4X4
Apr 05, 2013 (9:15 am)
You guys helped me a lot so here is my experience. I got the Platinum 4X4 with the platinum plus package (sunroof and dvd) mats and roof racks. I live in Southern California. It was hard to locate the dark slate color in the platinum here. Finally, I located one with Surf City Nissan. After agreeing on a price of 43,500 otd, I drove for 3 hours in California traffic and once I arrived they try to jerk me for few hundred dollars. I am a man of principles and left. Drove to Palm Springs Nissan few days later after agreeing on 42,950 OTD, I had absolutely no problem, came signed the papers and left. Drove 1000 miles round trip to Mammoth a day later with my family and the car was great. Just applied for the $500 cash rebate from edmunds that would bring it down to 42,500 OTD. Let me guys know what you think or any questions, I will monitor the board for few weeks. Forgot to mention,I'm coming off from an Infinity QX 56, the car had 70,000 miles on it and never had a problem with it. Nissan is a little smaller, but the power and handling is great.

I have seen several references to $500 from Edmunds. Can anyone tell me what that is and how to access?

Thanks for the link. I see the Nissan incentive, but no Edmunds incentive.
#633 of 681 Another recall coming???
Apr 09, 2013 (6:26 am)
Just got off the phone with my dealership. I posted this note before but got no responses. Now it seems there will be a recall on this new problem with the 2013 PF.
When I open the trunk I hear a loud clunk or bang as it gets about 1/4 of the way up. Come to find out it is the back hatch/door hitting the roof of the car. Seems there's not enough space between the hatch door & the roof & the hatch hits the roof when you open it & then bangs when it forces its way open. (Hope this makes sense.) In the process of the hatch & the roof rubbing each other, my paint has started to chip away.
Dealer said this is a NATIONAL problem with the new PF and they are working on a solution, but I shouldn't expect a solution for at least a month.
So, now 2 recalls to be had on the car... first the passenger airbag sensor and now the trunk/hatch. I love my car, but have to admit I'm slowly getting discouraged.
Anyone else noticing this problem with their trunk opening?

I have had no problems we with my trunk. It must be on certain VIN numbers. Sorry you are having issues.

I have heard a snapping sound.. I originally thought it was that little piece of plastic, but might need to take a really close look tonight...
Other issues I have seen with mine are:
Rear passenger door requires alot of force to close.
Rear Climate occasionally thinks 90 is the ideal temp.
Perhaps we should have a separate forum for the 2013 possible issues.. This really isnt related to buying experiences..
