by Catie on Jan 2, 2003 Vehicle: 1999 Nissan Frontier XE 2dr Regular Cab SB
Purchased day after I
totalled my Sentra, I wanted
capability to carry furniture
& big boxes & sit higher up
off the ground (my 97 sentra was so
low). Big differences between the two
vehicles are gas mileage & interior
space, obviously, but I thought I'd
have another 2 or 3 mpg rather than
the 25 or 26 hwy. A good truck for
city driving; not real comfortable for
long trips, and I can only carry one
other person which is a bummer. Makes
an occasional noise like a lid is
rattling under the hood, maybe heating
manifold cover. Hoping nothing but
good things from Nissan. Bought used
at 44k miles. Nice, smooth shifting &
handling at high rpm.

If you are looking for an inexpensive pickup that's great on gas too, then the Nissan is the way to go. The bed is bigger/deeper than any other small truck. I bought the std cab because I didnt want to spend more than necessary, though the extra cab would be nice to have. I have owned this trk for a few months and enjoy it. Wife thinks the steering wheel has too much play, but I dont notice it. Rides rough like a truck, and on windy days I get thrown around the freeway because it's not heavy enough to hold its own. That's what I expected though, so I'm not upset.
