Used Nissan Pathfinder
The Nissan Pathfinder is one of the most popular vehicles of its time. It's built for anything you can think of, from cruising around Allentown or Bethlehem to the most challenging of off-road terrain. It can carry six to seven people and their luggage for either a long road trip or camping out in the middle of the Allegheny National Forest.
This car was the source of many fond memories for me, but only because I took such good care of it. I maintain a maintenance calendar with all of the areas of the vehicle, from cooling systems to engine, from transmission to suspension. I record when I install a part, its make and approximate lifespan, and when I would need to replace it and follow the calendar to the letter. To this day the engine purrs like a kitten.
Here are a few general tips for fellow pathfinders, tips I"ve learned over the years that have kept this vehicle as good as new.
- Follow the instructions - In order to extend your car's life and save cash in the long run, follow the engine maintenance recommendations in the manual. Don't deceive yourself into believing that by skipping the upkeep you will still have an efficiently running vehicle for very long. If you buy time, remember you will probably buy more parts in the future.
- Clean and shine - Give a hard scrubbing to the exterior. Show the interior some love too, by vacuuming, detailing, and shampooing the upholstery and carpet. Regular wash and wax not only preserves the paint it also prevents rust from getting a foothold.
- Prepare for seasons - Whether it's winter, summer, or anything in between, changing seasons means your car needs to be prepped accordingly. For most cars winters and summers are more demanding on car batteries, tires and coolant, among other parts. Paying attention to these critical points could make all the difference between getting stranded and getting there. If it snows, even moderately, and you can afford the extra cost, get winter tires for extra control and traction.
- Electronics - Even if the car is a couple of years old, its sound system will be out of date. Trade your old radio for one that can integrate with an iPod and has Bluetooth connection for receiving calls. Minor changes like these will shoot your car out of the past and into the present.
