Ran Into a Nissan District manager at a new pathfinder reveal

Told me only manuals coming , that's disappointing if true , hopefully not the case

That strikes me as extremely unlikely. Why would Nissan sacrifice what would probably be half their market when they have gone to the expense of integrating an AT into the car? Remember the grey car videoed in transit in the States was an auto. I call BS on this one.

i agree thats why i found so out of the blue , i hope it is bs , but that was what he said one of the sales manager for the dealer expressed some concern to his comment and he held his ground

so lets hope he is wrong

Not sure why he’d say that. As mentioned, it would take away half (if not more) of the sales market. We’ve already seen the automatic optioned interior so we know it’s coming. I’m not sure any dealerships or even district managers have any information to accurately speak on the subject yet.

The only thing might be that if the 6-speeds are already on-hand, and not dependent on transmission controllers... where the automatics are more susceptible to the shortage of silicon, and being sub-contracted from another company... the "launch" allocations of the first few units to each dealer may start out as 6-speed cars, with the autos following slightly behind them. They'll likely sell anyway, and get people to see them, and put their name in the books for an automatic allocation at least.

I just hope there is a cross reference for a steering wheel that doesn't have the piano-black plastic touch surfaces, or the oddly glossy airbag cover.

Yeah, this is clearly untrue but it's strange that this person was so married to it. Did anyone ask the obvious question of "why" to this guy? I think that would have revealed the inherent illogicality of his claim :ROFLMAO:
