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


Review

I read the reviews. I did my research. I found one on the internet. Without even a test drive, I bought it and the dealership drove it down to me (4hrs one way). If you want a small truck that has the OMMPH, here ya go. If you expect to get 20+MPG.. don't buy this truck. It is a PERFORMACE vehicle. Fun to drive and no major issues so far.


Best Features

Go, go, go. The Supercharger winds up and away you go. Do a lil 4x4 with it and watch the mud fly.


Worst Features

The bed light and mid brake light had water in it and failed. Took to dealer, instant replacement @ no cost. No other problems.

Review

I have had excellent service from this truck and would have no qualms about purchasing another. Thus far I have encountered only one defect which related to emissions controlat around 9,000 miles. It did not affect the performance of the vehicle. The problem was identified and repaired quickly. The truck is slow at takeoff unless I put my foot down heavily. This truck has an excellent turning radius, which comes in very handy in tight parking situations. which I forget about. The interior of the truck is laid out very well for my tastes, with plenty of space and easy ingress and egress.


Best Features

The center console is probably my favorite feature. I also like the tight turning radius.


Worst Features

Maybe a little more low end torque. I also wish I had opted for the cruise control, but did not want the other equiptment that came with that package.

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


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

Looked only at several used Tacomas until we stumbled on this bright red truck. During the test drive we were both surprised at the comfort of the ride - far less bouncy than the Tacoma - much quieter - and the seats are superb - The engine has plenty of power both at the low end and at highway speeds. The high glass line adds to openess and the tuck is noticeably wider inside than the Tacoma. This truck had 35K miles on it and the interior looked new. Gas mileage after 1000 miles has averaged 15.7 - mostly work commute so far but would expect 18 or so on highway - Have been using mid level octane and seems fine - nice truck!


Best Features

Rugged look, Wheels, Engine, suspension and ride, quiet roomy interior, build quality, lots of 12 volt accessory outlets at handy locations.


Worst Features

Stock radio/CD could use a better speaker but not bad - easy to upgrade - would also like a maintenance free battery vs the add water type that is stock
