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.
Having a bed which is obvious... Not
had long enough to evaluate, but a
seemingly trusty steed in a small
truck. Have base model, the XE std
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.
love the way the Frontier looks...dependable...fun to drive.
bucket seats with center console vise bench seat...I suppose the manufacturer has solved this problem by stopping production of their std cab trucks.
