I can pull out 16-17mpg city-ish driving. That's a mix of NE Philly and S Jersey. If it's straight stop and go you will be down in the 14's no prob.Reckoner wrote:And one other BIG question, how is the overall gas mileage? I read the Pathfinder gets around 15 city/21 Highway...is this true?
Bigger, yes. To give you an idea, I loaded up a boxed bathtub last weekend into the back (massive box), along with a number of 2x4x8's & a bunch of other parts.Reckoner wrote:I had actually originally been looking into a 2006+ Honda Civic, but I wanted something bigger and perhaps power to all four of my wheels So here I am...

I still have another year of free oil changes, so I haven't really been underneath to check. But, I'm not leaving spots anywhere I park.Oil leak (several occasions)
no to bothWindow motor failure (both)
Window regulator failure (both)
All the bloody time. But, that is entirely because of the roads, road conditions & driving style (in my case). If I was taking a mellow drive on a straight, flat road & the thing went off, then I'd be concerned.Gauge displays "slip" "brake" "VSC off" and all other kinds of misfires
My overall mpg for the last 2 years is around 17. I'm anal about keeping mpg records, but not anal enough to jot down notes every time I change from city to highway, so I don't honestly have a clue what I might be getting for either one. All of my city driving probably includes at least 50% of my fuel expenditure sitting at a light or a traffic jam. None of my highway/freeway driving is ever slower than 75mph, and 99% of my driving is between 4300-10000 feet in elevation. My previous best must have included a tailwind, but it was over a section of I-80 in Nevada going about 80mph fully loaded inside w/2 16' kayaks on top. That gave me about 20-21mpg. My best so far has been a 100 or so mile downhill stretch of highway that gave me about 23mpg. One of our former members kept claiming 26mpg, but the dolt was never able to prove it even to himself (the speedo in the Pathfinder is accurate if you are running 265/75/16 tires, so smaller sizes will give a false sense of mileage gains).And one other BIG question, how is the overall gas mileage?
