Great truck

Vehicle: 1998 Nissan Frontier SE 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

90K Miles & going strong. Great on and off road. Very reliable... this truck has never failed to perform. Comfortable to drive & great looking. Paint has held up perfectly in very hot Southwest sun.

Very reliable truck to own. Offroad capabilities are fair. Recommend 31x10.50x15 offroad tires for better traction and appearance. Currently have driven 106k mi since new. Great truck! I'




Fun little truck

Vehicle: 1998 Nissan Frontier SE 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

I have had my truck about 2 years and love it. 62,000 miles. It has the 4 cyl., 5 spd. manual, which is a little weak, but has enough pep to be fun to drive. Have had no major problems. Only problems have been small stuff like buttons on stereo popping off, and handle to drivers seat adjustment coming off. Also, the drivers side window has just started to give me problems. Very reliable truck. The 4WD has gotten me into some really cool areas, but it does not have the clearance of say the Toyota. There are no cheap fixes for this. But great for just piddling around in. Hope I never have to sell mine.
