Vehicle: 2002 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab SC-V6 2WD LB (3.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

The vehicle performs well for a pickup at all speeds. Nice quite ride, lots of cab room (4 door Crew Cab), and a superior sound system stock.




Bang for your buck

Vehicle: 2002 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab SC-V6 2WD LB (3.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

I bought the Nissan Frontier based solely on price. I found that the Toyota Tacoma Crew Cab was at least $3,000 more with similar equipment. The Dodge Dakota was a contender but it was $2,000 more with similar equipment. Plus the way this truck looks is just plain mean...another advantage is most Frontier drivers have the short bed. The longer bed and the price is what sold me. I didn't buy the 4X4 because there is no use for it in the city. I do wish it was more gas efficient but I knew this buying the truck so it is not a great concern for me. Overall I love the truck.

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...

Fall of 2002 will be an exciting time for truck buyer's looking for some sport & fun. Nissan brings to the market two models of the Frontier Open Sky (makes you think of 1960's beach movies!)...
