I was torn between the two colors. My dealership only had a few cars in storm grey-no Pathfinders, and it looked too dark on the cars. Of course they had no vehicle in Silverton Blue, so I took a gamble with that.Danguy426 wrote:ahh yes... storm grey.... the silverton blue was very nice... but im a sucker for this shade of grey on an automobile.
Are you talking about the side airbags? I'm betting you are since front airbags are standard across the board, as far as I know. I have a 2007 SE-OR. The only way I could have added the side air bags would have been to add the leather package, or drop my premium package. They simply would not allow me to get only the premium package with side airbags. I raised all kinds of hell with that one, to no avail. The 2006 model year allowed one to configure the SE-OR any way they wanted it, which really ticked me off when I mentioned that to my dealer. Looks like the 2008 SE-OR is the same way-you have to get the leather package in order to get side airbags. Just plain stupid. I'll gladly fork over for the safety, but not for a package I can't use & can't stand.The one thing I didn't understand is why the airbag package wasn't standard.... cost me 600 as an add on...can't really put a price on safety.
All of the dealers in my area said the same thing: "we don't order vehicles with side airbags because people don't want to pay for them." I don't know where they are getting the statistics for that. I think it should be mandatory. I've read many posts from other forums where people were upset they had the side/curtain airbags, and wanted to have them deactivated.08Datsun wrote:The air bag package is one of the weird things with ours. Ours is only an S but it has the side air bags. I only saw the side air bags on one SE-OR we drove(aside from the LE). I never did see the package on any SE V6 or V8, or any other S. That didn't affect our decision either way, but it seemed odd. The package was $700 on ours, btw.
