It has been my primary vehicle for 3.5 years and I have just turned over 70K miles. I commute 28 miles one way every day with this vehicle, have taken it off road a handful of times and hauled numerous heavy loads. I pretty much abuse my vehicles and don't baby them. If I keep the highway speed under 70 mph I average 20 MPG. The horn broke after 1.5 years while it was still under warrenty, other than that I have had zero problems with this vehicle ,nothing but oils changes. The truck has held up well, still starts and runs like a new one. I would definitely consider buying a Nissan again.

This is my 3rd Frontier. I had a 2000
Frontier that I had bought NEW and had
a ton of problems with it. These
trucks need to be made in Japan where
the assembly process is much better!
Anyway, I gave Nissan another chance
when I bought a loaded up 2001 Frontier
Crew Cab 4x4... I only had it for 3
months and it seemed ok?! Here I am in
another Frontier, and it has problems
galore. Radio went out already, raw
gas smell under the truck that
is 'undiagnosable' and catalytic
converter smells every few days. On
top of that, now I have some electrical
issues that who knows what it'll cost.
I'm trading it and will absolutely
NEVER buy a Nissan truck again.

Wanted Toyota, looked at Ford but liked
Nissan better. 8 months and 10K miles
later I'm glad I picked Nissan. Fit
and Finish excellent. Hardly a squeak
and no rattles. Comfortable. Fun to
drive. Sharp looks. No return trips
to dealer!!! My first Nissan but I
banked on their track record and so far
its been right on. Dependability,
reliability, thats what I want for my
money, not trips back to the dealer !!
Why don't V6 pickups get better overall
gas milage? 18 mpg 80%highway 20%town.
I've hit 20.5 on a long cruise.
Overall excellent value. Just as good
as Toyota and better than the others.
Got a great price too.

Other improvements for the Frontier lineup include a redesigned instrument panel and console and an available Rockford Fosgate-powered audio system.

My 2002 Frontier has a bad gas tank. I bought this truck in 2005 with 23,000 miles from my local Nissan dealer. It now has 64,000 miles and needs a new fuel tank because of rust. I found this out when...
