1998 Nissan Frontier XE 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

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.


Best Features

Comfortable bench seat, room for everyday hauling, very utilitarian, reliable, repairs are relatively inexpensive


Worst Features

All little nit picky things. The gas mileage is a little disappointing. Only one cup holder doesn't help the passenger. Engine is a little gutless going up hills requiring downshifting. The glove box barely fits the owners manual.

Review

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.


Best Features

Reliable. Small enough to park in those tight public garages but bed is big enough to haul furniture for my apartment.


Worst Features

the exterior design is boring. This truck is perfect for people who don't want any attention.

Review

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
this truck

Review

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?


Best Features

Styling and comfort of the cab is great!


Worst Features

Larger glove compartment!

Review

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.


Best Features

Exterior styling, chrome package.


Worst Features

Address rattles and vibrations, better radio quality
