Sold the Pathfinder :(

Hello everyone,

I made the tough decision to trade in my 2022 Pathfinder. I bought the SL trim in September 2021. I really liked the car and did not have any major issues with it. Only real issue that we had was the height of the passenger seat and I started one of the popular threads on the issue here. I had a few other random issues like AC not coming on some times but really nothing major. Other than that, it was pretty reliable. Only put 14,000 miles on it in one year and 7 months

It was my wife's car, and she had a 2013 Ford F-150 FX2 prior to that. She liked driving the truck for 8 years. I tried to talk her into replacing the truck with the PF since we got a good offer on the truck at that time. Personally, i liked the feel and handling of the PF. However, after a year and half my wife was really wanting to have a truck again. Dealers around me started getting a lot of trucks on their lots again so I started looking for a replacement to the PF.

I paid MSRP for the PF in 09/2021 which was $41,900 with no markup. CarMax offered $37k for it which seemed to be reasonable. I ended up getting a new GMC Sierra 1500 SLT which I was able to get for $8000 below MSRP. Different car and totally different feel and now to deal with a new set of issues :)

Till my next Nissan....

Nope. Decided to go with the 5.3 engine.
Hey @AlexTheMan - sorry to see you go, but I understand the explanation completely.
I may be going in that direction soon, myself as well - still working out the details but, when I do, I will let this wonderful community know of my plans.
You're going to enjoy the 5.3L Chevy engine. I am still running my 2001 Chevy Tahoe LS with the 5.3L. It has been trouble free after 133K miles of service. I hope to keep running it as long as I can.
Thanks @Hebrew Hammer for the well wishes. Good to hear your experience with the 5.3L engine. As I said I actually liked the PF a lot and enjoyed driving it in city as well long distances.
Hey @AlexTheMan - if you are still around here (on the site), and are interested, I also sold my Pathfinder...
The link is here: A fond farewell
Just saw your thread. Enjoy the new car and the best thing is that your wife is happy with it. I am still hanging around in this forum as I like a lot of discussions over here.
Agreed, @AlexTheMan - happy wife, happy life!! Glad you will be hanging around here too! This site has such a good group of folks as members...
And enjoying cars (the way I do!), I enjoy all the conversation(s) here!!

Have many happy miles with the Sierra - it's a cool truck!!
