Review

My fuel system was replaced after repeatedly overflowing (see other owner comments), my ABS light goes on and off but a problem cannot be determined b/c it never is "on" at the dealership (so much for computer memory), and my automatic window needed repair. I was one step away from successfully completing a Lemon Law case against Nissan (3 visits to the dealer without a resolution) - they finally brought in a fuel system expert from CA to fix the problem. The gas mileage still stinks!


Favorite Features

Excellent ride. Interior is solid.


Suggested Improvements

Paint on front end is weak and is not ageing well. Better gas mileage would be great!

Review

I purchased my 01 4WD crew cab new in 4/01. I now have 33K miles on it and just now had my first problem. The driver's side front power window is getting stuck and will need to be repaired. Other than that, it's been running great and gets tons of compliments. Sound system is great. Handles snow good in 4WD, but poor in 2WD


Favorite Features

Love the exterior design and the bed extender.


Suggested Improvements

Needs better gas mileage. I'm only getting about 16 mpg, and the back seating area could be a bit bigger.

Review

This truck has it all. It might be a slight bit underpowed in the street raceing sence but for pulling power its nuts. im a farmer i wnated a mid sized truck to haul stuff with and be able to handle mud and snow and still have balls but not be a huge beast like the dodges or fords full sized ones. anyway this truck can do this 4500 pounds on the hitch ( gotta get one installed not on the bumper) plus 1400 on the back of the box. the rpms barly move going 110 kph on the highway. super tough not one thing to repplace on it after 120000km bout 100000 miles other then oil and air filters and greasinf it up well. it can haul alot of people to.


Favorite Features

I love the seats nice and supportive, Plus the style of the truck gives it a nice mean look. lots of room in the crew cab if the front passengers dont mind moving up just a little bit. great factory stereo.


Suggested Improvements

Slightly better tranny for quicker speed ratio the truck is a little laggy lots of power just laggy. Better standard tires my were useless for country stuff. better cup holders in the back. minor stuff that dont count bigger sun shades. bit bigger consol would be nice but it is good.

Review

I looked at Toyota,Dodge,and Nissan Crew Cabs and the Nissan impressed the most based on overall feature and performance value.I was a little disappointed in the mileage at first,but with a cat back exhaust system,open air filter,and throttle body spacer plate the performance and mileage were greatly improved.And best of all,all mods.cost less than $500.00.I've owned several Nissans over the years and will continue to buy them as long as they keep up the great quality and value tradition.


Favorite Features

style,performance on and off road


Suggested Improvements

Review

I bought the truck for cheap transportation. I needed something with 25 mpg at 75mph for my 70 mile to work round trip, plus be able to tow my boat anywhere. Best experience was full bed load, while towing moving trailer with wife and mother in law to Georgia, no problems had to leave it in 4th gear on expressway.


Favorite Features

Proven towing ability and gas milage. Owned a 1985 over 200k still on the road


Suggested Improvements

Fan belts squeeled at idle, had to run a wire brush on side of belts to correct, need higher quality belts, I will install at 50K small $$$

Review

Bought the truck as a demo and couldve done better on the deal but came out ok. Truck runs great and handles just like a truck should handle. The overdrive kicks in way to quick while using cruise and going up a hill. This annoys the wife. Other than having the drivers door power window regulator assembly replaced and one of the rear doors also, havent had any problems with the vehicle except for mileage. Going to try a 70 series tire when these wear out and see if that helps the 16's really hurt the mileage on a V6.


Favorite Features

CD Changer, Good looks, spacious engine area makes it easy for steam cleaning and armour all.


Suggested Improvements

More leg room on driver. Better audio quality, BETTER MILEAGE (4.3L wouldve been nice).

Review

Nissan put some heart into this truck and given the same circumstances as when I bought it, I would buy it again. I do have a serious complaint about the gas mileage of this vehicle. Despite a number of different things I have tried, I rarely if ever get over 19 miles per gallon. Performance, Reliability, and features are what I LOVE about this truck. It is truly "my baby."


Favorite Features

6 CD Player, Auto Everything, Look of the Truck, Handles Nice, but a little "cagey" on sharp or sudden cornering.


Suggested Improvements

Would love to see better gas mileage, in the 20's per gallen 'at least.' Wider carriage for better stability. The "high profile" nature of this vehicle can result in a roll-over crash with sudden sharp turning.

Review

Not bad, but fuel economy drags down the overall rating. I'm getting 13.5- 15.0 for in-city driving. No difference noticed for highway driving!?!


Favorite Features

Body style is cool.

Review

This is the most versitile vehicle I have owned. I can haul the kids, camping gear, mountain bikes, take the wife to dinner and commute to work. This a less refined vehicle than some on the road (i.e. Lexus, Infiniti) but it gets the job down well with great exterior styling.


Favorite Features

Exterior looks, versitility/utility and reliability.


Suggested Improvements

A couple of more horsepower would help (I wish for the 3.5l V6 someday)and better QA/QC on a couple of items such as the gas filler neck and the plastic cowling. They were replaced with out question, so no biggie.
