The truck drives great the only issue is the gas mileage but that is only becuase I was used to driving a 4 cylinder and this is a V6. Handles wonderful in snow, and rain. Looks nice and I love that we bought it.
Upgraded from a 2000 to a 2002
Frontier. Shouldnt have. Same front
end squeaks from the poor front bumper
design: 2 trips to dealer. Mismatched
decals and condensation in the bedlamp:
2 trips to dealer. Continual loss of
coolant: Three trips to dealer, the
last of which they decided to tear it
apart and replace head gaskets.
Thinking seriously about getting my old
one back, if for some strange reason
its still there...
Looks are good as is the interior
Assemble them so that mechanically and
structurally they stay together under
normal conditions. What happened to
the dependability of the earlier
models? Too much time was spent on the
exterior design without staying true to
the performance quality and reliability.
Overall, this is a good vehicle, but I
remember looking up reviews on Edmunds
in April prior to purchasing my truck
and one reviewer wrote in about
the "clicking" noises in the front. I
figured it was a fluke and wouldn't
happen to me. Well, it did. I
have "clicking" and occassional
metallic "squeaking" noises in what
seems to be the front suspension --
Primarily when im turning around a
corner. Had it in twice and it's still
Figure out what flaws exist in this
model's suspension or front fender
design and fix them.
Well, my family has owned Nissans since
1984 so i really wanted to like this
truck. However, after taking it back 4
times to Boulder Nissan and twice to
John Elway Nissan I am still having
major probs with it and thanks to the
terrible/rude service at Boulder Nissan
I'll be using the Colorado Lemon Law to
get my money back. They still haven't
sent me my owner's manuals and i've had
this truck for 6 months! The two major
probs i still have are it pulls to the
left when i brake and have a very loud
squeak coming from my rear window seal
that silicone hasn't fixed. Mighty
dangerous when it's icy!
Love the looks and the interior style.
Drives great except for the dangerous
Is much noisier inside than the tacoma
and lots of wind noise that could be
improved. Also, why don't small trucks
come with disc brakes all around? Might
want to train service depts better.
