I've had this truck for just over 2 years now. Bought it with 76,000 miles on it. I think I should have bought the extended cab but I really like the truck otherwise. I have had 720 lbs. of hay in the back and it ran just fine. It is more than enough truck for going to the hardware store or the dump. I use it as my commuter, around 70 miles a day. I would highly recommend this type of truck to anyone.

I bought my Nissan Frontier brand new in 1998 and it is still going. I am consistenly getting 20 miles per gallon in city driving. the truck has decent accelaration and gives power when needed. I live in Texas and the AC is still cold. I am never dissappointed. Six years of ownership and I have never experienced any stalling.

This is my first Nissan truck (had a
300zx and a 510 before).I took a chance
a bought a repo and I love it.The truck
is perfect for what I need it to do
which is light to medium hauling and
tooling around. I am very satisfied with

Bought this truck new,no major
mechanical problems with truck at all!
Only problem I have had is the
speedometer has started to intermitanly
stick at 40 miles per hour. This is the
second nissian truck I have had and
will continue to buy thier trucks.
Reliablity is great for this size truck!
One odd thing is the truck owners
manual barely fits into the unusally
small glove compartment?

Truck has been pretty reliable.
Appealing exterior. Interior layout is
paractical. Right (passenger side)
window rattles terribly, especially
with driver side window down. Lost
radior light at 45,000 mi. Lost radio
volume control at 49,000 mi. Service
engine light at 51,000. Diagnostic
incomplete, requiring a return trip.

I purchased my 98 Frontier used 18
months ago. Only normal oil changes so
far- its been perfect. Have taken on
two long(2500+ miles)trips- very
comfortable and reliable. I think this
is the best light truck value for your
dollar. The four cylinder gets about
23mpg city/ 27 hwy. w/ a tonneau cover
on the back. The power is adequate,
evenly heavily loaded through 9000ft
passes in the Rockies it did fine.
Quite peppy around town without a heavy
load. My fifth Nissan, but first truck-
I highly recommend this vehicle!
