  1. @ManBeast I will do. I'm going to need to do some research before hand so it doesn't all go tits up.
  2. Thank you so much for the reply Kiwi. It was really reassuring. I will have a look at the radiator setup and make those alterations you suggested. I have also got it booked in to get fluids changed. It also has upgraded suspension already so I'm good in that area. Your R51 is one good looking vehicle I'll pay the picture tax once I've set up my imgur account
  3. Hi everyone, I recently bought a 2011 pathfinder St-L. I fell in love with the look of the car and got a pretty good price for it. I had done a bit of research before buying and the mechanic said it was in great condition. But after some deeper digging I started reading more into the R51's and their potential problems and it got me worrying. I found this incredible forum and thought I might be able to get some advice on here. My wife and I are moving to a fairly remote area with a lot of sand tracks and dirt roads so would like to do everything possible to keep it running as smoothly as possible. I have read up on the problems such as SMOD, rusty back wheel thingies and the timing belt and am doing what I can to prevent these issues. So essentially what I am asking is; What issues do I need to watch out for and what can I do to make sure these don't arise? Also I am looking at getting a roof basket/storage of some sort so if anyone has any affordable suggestions in Australia, that would be hugely appreciated. I had a look and couldn't find a similar question but apologise if there is. thanks in advance, Joe
