2002 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab SE-V6 4WD SB (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

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.


Best Features

Oversize package makes it look beefy.

Review

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...


Best Features

Looks are good as is the interior design.


Worst Features

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.

Review

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
not fixed....


Worst Features

Figure out what flaws exist in this model's suspension or front fender design and fix them.

Review

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!


Best Features

Love the looks and the interior style. Drives great except for the dangerous brake thing.


Worst Features

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.
