Possibly traction control kicking in too aggressively? Was VDC off?

I find this really odd. I have an '06 with 105K miles on it. I've towed a variety of things with it since new, often including a boat about the same weight as the load you mention. When pulling the boat, I'd say I have a heavier load on the truck, as we generally have a bunch of people/stuff in the ...

I am getting ready to tow with my pathfinder for the first time...everything is stock and I am pulling a Alumacraft fish/ski boat that is well under towing limit not sure of exact weight. will be towing mostly interstate. Any suggestions would ...

So far my Pathfinder has had 3 sets of tires. Stock Generals - always sucked. Traction was poor in the wet, worse in the snow, and non-existent off the road. At 30K they were getting pretty worn and noisy. I replaced them with the Pirelli Scorpion ATR's you mentioned. They were a better tire, tracti...

Now that Nissan completely ruined the Pathy come 2013, i'm seriously considering the GC. That is a big part of the issue I'm having. I hate to buy a 2012 Pathfinder knowing that it's the last year of a run that began in 2005 and that they are totally changing the platform in 2013. The 2013 Pathfind...

Anyone look at the new Grand Cherokee?

My '06 Pathfinder has been a really good vehicle, but at 103,xxx miles I'm starting to have thoughts of replacing it. I have had thoughts of getting another Pathfinder, but think I might be ready to have something different. I do some towing in the 5000lbs range, and a lot of towing in the 2000-2500...

Exactly. if you just had the back open and the rest of the windows shut, you could end up blacking out at the wheel from the Co2 replacing all the Oxygen in the car. Not a good idea. Yeah....I think this is a little (ok...a lot) of a stretch. I'm not saying you won't get some exhaust stink in the t...

Re: Towing advice needed

2. The trailer is just under the towing limits for the Pathfinder at 5770 lbs. Before we get you too far into this project - where are you getting that number? Is that the dry/empty number quoted by the manufacturer? Did you have the dealer put it on a scale? My worry is that you are talking about ...

What size is the receiver on the Pathfinder 2" ? and I would need a 2" ball ? The receiver on the Pathfinder (square opening) is a class III/IV so it is a 2"X2" opening. The rental trailers are often set up to be adjustable for a couple of ball sizes, but go ahead and get a 2" ball. Hitches/balls a...

First - relax, I've pulled that size enclosed trailer, your Pathfinder will be a good fit for it. Hitch - you will need a trailer hitch with a 2" ball. You want the trailer to be level (roughly) when hooked to the truck. You'll notice then when you buy a hitch ball attached to a hitch insert it will...

Thanks for the feedback guys. I pulled a friends toyhauler tonight. He claims it weighs 3500lbs dry. I did not get out on a highway but he the road he lives on has a sizeable hill. With it floored it did not get over 40 mph going up the hill. Flat ground was OK. Braking could be an issue though. I ...

Honestly....the only difference in the good old days...and today...might be your willingness to bang your knuckles under the hood for awhile. Age related. Let’s just say I look better than I feel.

I can understand how disappointed you must be. Just got back from the dealer spark plug replacement and knew it would not be cheap ($300 bill to replace 6 - $12 plugs. I remember the days when you got all the plugs for $12 and changed them yourself). Sooo....I have to ask...what was stopping you fr...

If I regularly drove in deeper snow I would have gone with an AT, probably the Michelin AT2. Michelin is about the only tires I don't burn through quickly. I've got 15k miles on them so far and have burned 2/32. Should get an easy 50-60k out of them...got 30k out of the OEM Generals. I'm running th...

I changed my plugs last night (got the plugs from Advance Auto, their part number 6240, same numbers on them as the ones I took out of the truck). I'm at 89,000 miles on the truck. I did not remove any of the intake parts or brackets. I actually tried to take off the bracket, but couldn't get one of...
