Noob from Chicago burb

Postby Gonzo » Tue Jan 06, 2009 12:28 pm

Hey,
My name is Joel. I'm new to the whole SUV and 4x4 scene. Just recently bought my 08 Pathfinder SE in Majestic Blue with a couple features. The main reason for my purchase of a Pathfinder was the need for a larger vehicle for the family. I was pretty active in the whole compact/import scene with a (you guessed it) mod'ed Honda Civic Si. Loved racing it, more so in Autocross. I'm pleased and proud to say that I love my truck. I'm looking to learn from most of you guys here about my vehicle and it's capabilities.

Brrrrrrrr...Well, driving through Batavia it read -17 degrees in my truck and later finding out when I got to work the windshield temp was -40. I thought my truck would never warm up. I have a 20+ min. drive one way to work. BTW I work in West Chicago so I drive literally through Batavia on Route 31.

Good to know that I have someone close by for referencing anything concerning my PFinder.

TheTiger - Thanks.

This morning driving through the same town on my way to work, as stated in the above reply (Batavia, IL) my trucks outside temp reading was -23 degrees. Damn, now that's cold. I didn't get the winshield factor but I really didn't want to know.
