Info on the 2004 MO is finally posted on NissanUSA. A notable addition to the 2004 (but not really discussed on this forum) is the drive by wire throttle. Has the MO always had this, but it's not been prominent news? should be interesting to see how it drives.

Also, now that the prices are up, it gives me a chance to see what kind of deal I got on the '04 SE AWD I ordered 2 weeks ago. I compared the MSRP for my configuration (loaded except rear-seat entertainment, plus splash guards and floor mats) to the similar '03 spec on Edmunds.com, and there is a $656 difference in MSRP. Edmunds TMV for this config in an '03 $35,483, which is $255 over what I'm paying. I don't feel so bad now.

Finally, NissanUSA shows the rear-seat entertainment system as being available (no more "late availability"). I intentionally did not order it, as I thought my order would be held up due to availability issues. I'm second-guessing a little bit, but not too much. Over the summer, we bought a portable unit from Delco that is a self-contained box w/ 7" LCD, DVD, 2 headphone jacks, and a huge storage compartment big enough for the kid's GameCube. It was a decent deal at $450 from Crutchfield, so the wife and I figure we'll use it until it dies, then install something custom.

Still chewing my fingernails waiting for Thanksgiving, which is when mine is expected at the dealer.

Yes, it's great to have the 2004 MO on the site. However, I tried to configure an 04 SL with Touring and Premium packages ( I want BOSE etc.) and it wouldn't let me do it. Anyone else having that problem?

I believe that 03 has drive by wire throttle. Am I wrong?

The Touring package on the 04 contains the leather package and sunroof package...If you read the details the leather package includes all the features of the 03 premium...so order your 04 with touring and you will have everything. I am hoping to pick my 04 up next week. I had ordered a silver one with black, but they have a blue with the tan and it looks sharp....I have a silver pathfinder now, so I am think I want to get a different color combination. Anybody else have a blue MO? How is it to keep clean? What about the lighter interior?

The Touring package does indeed include the Premium and Sunroof package. If you order the Navigation System, it includes the Touring Pacakge AND VDC.

My friend has a burgundy w/ latte interior, and it's very classy looking, if a bit on the light side. I personally think the charcoal interior looks nice against the aluminum trim - gives it sort of a sports car look.

Your dealer is expecting '04s next week? You lucky dog!

The dealers in the Pittsburgh, PA area actually have 2004's on the lot as we speak. The dealer I am dealing with a blue with the tan interior.....I am going to wait a few days to see if one with black comes in or even a silver with black. If not, I will just wait for the one I ordered....

Kris, I want to agree with you. It does have a drive by wire throttle. You can tell, also when you use cruise control, the pedal doesn't move.

Yes, electronic drive by wire throttle in '03 and '04.

I am having a hard time figuring out the "shell game" Nissan has played with the option packages between 03 and 04. Can't figure a common thread. I like that they have a common Premium package for both SE and SL in 04 instead of popular and premium in 03. And I like a separate sunroof package so you can get premium package without a sunroof. But the touring package price ($300 difference yet same contents), leather package (separate option on SL which includes sunroof but not a separate package on SE but included in both SE and SL Touring packages), chrome wheels (accessory on SE, option on SL), and NAV (configure an SE and it says must have SL touring and Dynamic Control Package) ...quirks...don't follow the trend of making it easier to figure out. Anyhow, here is a listing pieced together from the Nissan USA website when you try to configure and click on the descriptions:

SE Touring Package $4000
