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


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....


Suggested Improvements

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

Review

despite lackluster magazine reviews, I have a fleet of these trucks (they seemed the best value for the money, and unlike the Toyotas, can be had for around $4000LESS than MSRP) and am thoroughly impressed. I'll purchase another fleet of the same truck in three years.


Favorite Features

rugged reliability, high quality, low price


Suggested Improvements

larger sun visors would be nice

Review

Been a little over a year, and a little over 17,000 miles. 4 cylinder, auto king cab xe... I have to have a truck for work...and I don't have lots of money. The Frontier fits the bill. It hasn't faultered once, carries dirt, landfill, and all the stuff I need it to, and it looks "funky". I live in FLA, and it's very, very hot now. I'm amazed at how cold the ac is. It's not fast, wasn't meant to be...it doesn't corner well, and that doesn't matter to me. Little kid in on my block calls it "future truck." Good title, cause I plan on keeping this truck well into the future.


Favorite Features

CD Player, Jump seats (surprised how much I use them!). The truck bed is just the right size for my needs.


Suggested Improvements

The seats have a little plastic piece that catches my butt on the way in and out...that's the only thing I'd change.

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


Review

This is absolutely the best truck available on the market today. I have never driven anything like this machine. I had always been a Ford lover, but I fell in love with this vehicle the minute that I saw it. It was five thousand dollars cheaper than anything comparable to it. Plus, it has more power than any truck in its class. I get 15 to 18 miles per gallon even when I punch the supercharger frequently. I plan on keeping this truck forever. I have experienced no problems with it and I am confident that I will not because it was built by hard-working Americans.


Favorite Features

The Rockford Fosgate six-disc changer in the dash is awesome. What really takes the sound system to the next level is the addition of the hand control to the steering wheel. The leather seats are also beautiful.


Suggested Improvements

I can think of nothing else to add to this truck that it doesn't already possess. I love my truck and the rest of the people that have reviewed this machine are out of their mind.

Review

I purchased a Nissan Frontier XE for a no-frills truck. I looked at every truck in it's class and for the money it is the best. Handles well, so-so power, and good looks.


Favorite Features

Nice, simple interior, easy controls. Great exterior styling.


Suggested Improvements

1.)More refined clutch/drivetrain!! 2.) Gears could have been closer, final ratio is good. 3.)ZERO torque in lower rpm's (maybe a single cam would have been a better idea?)

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!


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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.
