You know for the condition of the vehicle this is money well spent.

When I think about costs, I keep telling myself that if I went out and bought a Japanese V8 SUV, I'd be forking a lot of money.

The best thing about these trucks are their longevity The newest generation Frontier went pretty much unchanged, mechanically, so that means replacement parts will exist in the chain for at least the next decade at reasonable costs.

Congrats on the new purchase, the truck looks mint for that year. Well Done!
Thanks!! :D
Indeed.
These cars used are functionally identical to much more expensive used or new vehicles. :wink:

If we're talking about features here, how does a 2011 NOT have bluetooth streaming on it's top of the line LE model Pathfinder??? :?: :?: :?: :!: :!: :!: That's my only gripe so far. Prices on aftermarket head units with Android Auto is starting to drop in price so an upgrade in the future is at the horizon.

The owners manual talks about hooking up the bluetooth.
Must have been part fo a package if not all have it?

I seem to remember my old Silver Edition had it (even tho I did not use it)

Mine came with bluetooth for voice, but not audio.

Update:

replacing the entire rear suspension now due to rust.
Vehicle cannot be aligned otherwise.
The alignment is not too far off but even so I want it right.

Upper rear control arm left
Upper rear control arm right
Lower rear control arm left
Lower rear control arm right
sway bar bushings
Rear shocks.

The front is getting new struts (complete with springs) and a complete front end kit:

Outer tie end rods,
inner tie end rods both sides,
new sway bar bushings
sway bar (thicker for the V8)
All new ball joints and bolts etc.

I am still well within my budget originally allocated for this vehicle.
