I am currently going through the process of getting change over $'s to upgrade my STR turbo diesel to a new 2.5 turbo diesel Pathfinder. Any thoughts or comments for or against the Pathfinder

Thanks for the ignorant reply. Had the search function yielded replies that were relevant I wouldn't have found it necessary to ask the question. Once again thanks for nothing

sorry about that - the reply wasn't meant to be ignorant - just helpfull. When I typed in Pathfinder before I sent the response I found heaps of relevant replies. Perhaps one thing you gotta learn on here is not to insult people and then you might get some more help.

No one has to type in replies if they don't want to.
If all anyone ever did was search the archives then no new information would ever come to light.

If you thought marklynn had missed some relevant replies in the search it would have been more polite to have steered him towards the post numbers.
I don't think he insulted you, just expressed his dismay at your follow up.

Lighten up

Good on you Mark - I thought that reply a bit odd - had a quick search myself and there seems to be nothing on the new Pathy - saw a review article in a mag recently (not to be taken too seriously of course) - did alert me to the idea that it was stacking up as attractive - power, comfort and capable too - ok - its not a rock crawler cum bush basher - might be a whisker close to the dirt too, but the specs seemed good overall. Towing limit is way up with the biggies - 128kw from a 2.5L is in keeping with the latest high techs - the only fear I have is that the longer we keep one of these space age things with their their super-sophistication, the higher the risk of big $ when they decide to go phut - even the dealers just keep replacing modules at our cost (if they can get away with it - see this forum) until it goes again !

Being a current pathfinder owner 2004 model unfortunately, I was invited to my Nissan dealership for the 2005 launch and I was very impressed. I have not as yet test driven the new model, current lease does not expire until 2009.

You might try these following post 25102, 27846, 28860 for some information unfortunately the Pathfinders of Australia Forum site is down and has been for a while. On this forum some of the members stated there were several minor problems they were experiencing I can not remember what these were, but Nissan fixed them with no problems.

We will be looking at one to replace our Patrol next year. My concern at the moment is the fuel tank size (85 L I think). I hope that by then there are some bigger aftermarket tanks available. My wife is happy that they are not as big a "truck" as the Patrol.

Hi mark,

I have just purchased the ST-L TDI manual model and even though I have only done about 2000k in it I am very impressed with its performance. It has been very cheap to run with a range of about 700k light load and is very comfortable to drive. I have always been a toyota man and traded in my troop carrier with 350k on it so it is a big change for me ! There are some down sides as not many accesoraries available ie. long range tank and there is no room for dual batteries. But ARB etc are working on that side of things. The steel bar from nissan should be ready in 10 days, or so they say?
Price wise compared to a prado the closest equivelant its got more options, These days its hard to get onto "genuine" off road tracks but I do access some great tracks on beach and on my farm. I have no complants with off road performance.
I will get some better shocks and tyres eventually when the OE wear out.
Hope that helps.
