Length of Ownership

Recommended Posts

I am just curious. This past April, marked 17 years of owning my 95 Pathy.

 

What are your length of ownership?

 

 

 

Thank you for sharing!

I got mine mid 2005, so 11 years for me. Been through about 3 batteries, a water pump, power steering pump and a new alternator. Have done about 205,000 kms (128,125 miles) since owning her.

Oh wow! That's cool! I didn't even think about the mileage! I started at 60k and now I am over 291k... Same alternator since 99 for me :happy:

Well I guess that would work out to 3 years and a few months and 123K to 185K and ...like.... $6000 in parts and tires. Some needed, some for peace-of-mind and some were replaced needlessly because of oversight (to the tune of about $1700 of the $6000) on my part....twice.

Whoa... I got my first Pathfinder in 2009 but I didn't have it long. My current truck I got late Oct 2010. Daaammmnnnn, so that means my KM2's have lasted over six years! Not once have I gotten it professionally aligned either. I'm definitely getting another set.

I got my first pathy in 2006, but I had to let it go in 2011 so I have my current one now. I also picked up another 95 in 2014. But Have been driving one for 10 years lol.

And I have to say that without the find ladies and gentlemen who hang out on this forum, the cool guy in the R50 covered in mud who gave me the thumbs-up on the highway and RockAuto I would have given up long ago..... There's a beer at my place for anyone and everyone on here!! You all rock hard the Pathfinder cult!!

24 years. Been in the family ever since she was new, with 315, 000 miles on her. If that's not a testament to Japanese engineering, I don't know what is. I swear these things live TOO long. :laugh:

Had a 95 D21 for 12 years, and 130k miles. Sold it, went overseas, came back and bought 92 WD21 for almost 3 years now, that now has over 300k miles. Can't tell you what's original, but it still runs like a champ and almost everything seems to be in good working order after a Lot of elbow grease and Seals.

My first Pathfinder was an R50 that I had for about 2 years when I lived in Southern California. I got it new when I had a short commute. But I ended up moving one way and my job moved the other - so I was commuting 90 miles each way every day. It had over 55K miles on it when I got rid of it for something that got better mileage.

 

I've had my WD21 for just over 3 years. It had ~154K mies when I got it and now has ~180K miles.

Just wow! My son will be 16 next year and has expressed that he would like this as his first vehicle. What a wonderful and loyal investment Pathys are!

Original Owner 96

 

Fantastic! I love my Pathy so much, wish I could say the same! It needs a lot of work now, but it continues to be black gold for me! And woohoo, Tuesday, I'm flying to Spokane to buy a 02 Pathy and I am going to drive it back! I've been seeking one with 4x4 stick shift, and with no exposure to rust. I know Spokane gets rust, but it was purchased in Cali so this will be the Pathy's first winter. It has had one owner. So excited!!!

20 years I've owned my 94 SE.

222k miles. Bought it with 40k. Finally starting to succumb to the rust belt blues :( The body mainly. Frame still holding strong.

Cannot say it enough. If you care about it, get it oil sprayed yearly.
