1998 Nissan Frontier Extended Cab SE 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

This has been a daily commuter for many, many years and there has never been any major issues. I have replaced the clutch 2x and done the normal maintenance over the years. Never once has it failed me. It gets great gas mileage for a truck. Just recently I passed the 300,000 miles mark and it still made a 2,000 mile trip to Arizona and back. The only complaint I have is that it is a gutless 4 cylinder. I have to put the pedal to the floor when turning onto a street and it still takes it time to accelerate.


Best Features

Compact truck with amazing gas mileage, comfortable for two people to drive in, easy to work on, lasts forever!

Review

This truck has never let me down in the 6 years i have owned it. No mechanical problems and has been comfortable on long trips. The Nissan frontier is the best truck in its class and is fantastically reliable.


Best Features

Space on the interior. I have plenty of room to fit anything I need to in it


Worst Features

a four wheel drive Hybrid version would be perfect.

Review

Bought the truck new in '98, Nissan had some promotion going so I got it for 10,800. Great price considering the service I've gotten. Had one major problem at about 80,000 miles, had a leak in the a/c system that cost about $600 to fix. Other than that only minor problems, head light and apparently a lot of people have the radio light go out like I did. Little sluggish on take off. All told, a great buy, my second Nissan and would not think twice before buying another one.


Best Features

Reliable, economical and fairly comfortable.


Worst Features

Clutch is a bit weak, exterior styling and radio light problems need to be addressed.

Review

Pros: Handsome looks. Famously reliable 4 cylinder engine. Nice ride for a truck, especially with good replacement tires. Cons: The automatic is low on horsepower and towing capacity. The fuel mileage is unimpressive. OEM tires create excessive road noise. Lots of irritating rattles at 40,000 miles.


Best Features

The SE is well appointed and comfortable.
