2002 Nissan Frontier King Cab 2dr King Cab XE-V6 4WD SB (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

Styling, Interior ergonomics really work for me, I'm a stickler for usable cups holders, a well designed center console and places to put stuff, this truck has all that. Plenty of power and torque.


Worst Features

Use better material for cloth seats.

Review

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.


Best Features

exterior look and more options for less money but as I see now, what good is that if you have problems?!


Worst Features

better seat material, better radio, better assembly process... take it back to Japan

Review

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.


Best Features

Plenty of pep for me. Dealer installed stereo sounds great. Like the tires, I live in snow country.


Worst Features

Gas mileage for V6's. The dash gauges seem to disappear depending on light conditions, makes guages hard to read at times. Set back to far. 3rd Door?

Review

I own a 2002 XE V6 4X4 extended cab.
For the most part truck has been a good
vehicle. The only major complaints that
I have with the vehicle is that it is a
bit under powered. The gas mileage is
not the greatest averaging about 17-18
mpg. Lastly, at about 5000 miles the
vehicle developed a few really annoying
squeaks and rattles. Other than those
few items the truck has been great so
far.


Worst Features

More engine power and better MPG

Review

Not yet sold on this vehicle. I have a
2002 V6 4x4 XE king cab. Gas milage
good at 20-21 mph everywhere. Having
problem with clunky brakes, fade in
pedal, long stops and heavy pulling to
left. Loud wurring noise,like that of a
power steering pump is getting on my
nerves. Fit and finish not the
greatest. At 7k miles (8 weeks old )it
is starting to get squeeky. Motor is
loosening up and acceleration is
improving. Love the look, price was
right. Will be making first trip to
dealer for service, we'll see how that
goes.


Best Features

Looks and Price


Worst Features

More sound proofing in cab, better and more storage, ash tray that doesn't require you to give up a cup holder. More attention to fit and finish.
