Well to begin with I bought this truck to replace my Toyota tacoma which got totaled out,had 85,000 miles on it when purchased and like a timer when it hit 100,000 miles everything has started falling apart, First off the tie rod went out which costs $300.00 next thing to go was the common knock sensor $600.00 which nissian ignores right after that the then the wheel bearing went and now its currently sitting in my driveway because the check engine light came on and it started missing like crazy and it now needs a $300.00 oxygen sensor which is absolutely outrageous. my toyota had 145,000 with just a power steering pump go out because it had 33inch tires on it will never own another nissian.
6 disc changer
fix the knock sensor issues and back the customers up a little bit.
I've had the truck for a couple of years now and have had a few issues with it but all in all has been a good truck. I have put more than my fair share of abuse on it such as offroading and heavy towing and it's done allright. Haven't had any real Major problems. Another suggested improvement is the front bumper is very flimsy I've had to replace it twice from offroading in snow.
I really like the six disc changer.
To start with it is almost impossible to do any basic engine work on it, such as the new knock sensor it needs is a $120 part that will cost $580 to get installed. Another complaint is gas mileage is 12.5 with a 31in tire on it which isn't that big of a step up from stock.
Nissan should go back to the drawing
board with this engine. Supercharger
is good idea and helps make up for the
wimpy-6. Really bad fuel economy - 16
city/20 hwy for a compact pickup. Have
to align the front-end every 5,000
miles at $55 bucks a pop - one of the
Nissan production techs told me this
was a common problem with
the "bigfoots" as he called it,
referring to the large wheels and tires
they put on the S/C models with no
suspension modifications. Do not
expect tires to last more than 25K mi.
Quick acceleration thanks to super-
charger. Baywatch styling.
Significantly improve fuel economy. Fix
the front-end alignment problems.
Power improvement without a supercharger
I wanted a small truck with enough
power to pull my boat and have get up
and go like a car. The 6-disc cd indash
is nice but lacks on wattage. The hwy's
around here are a little rough so the
ride can be bumpy. The tires are an odd
ball size and firestone is the only one
that makes that size on the
Supercharged model. I can say that this
truck loves the hwy speed. The worst
thing about this truck is the gas
mileage, IT SUCKS! I drive about 26
miles each way to work, mostly hwy and
I average 14mpg. I am considering going
back to a full size truck, if I am
going to drive a vehicle with 18mpg or
less it might as well be a full size
with a V8...
The power....I have the 2000 Sentra SE
with the 145hp and this truck will
Better gas mileage,Better gas mileage
Better gas mileage,Better gas mileage!
And a better tire in a normal size that
can be bought from diff manufactures.
