It's a great little truck -- very
handy. I purchased the shortbed for
ease of handling offroad, but would
prefer the longbed for hauling loads.
Handling is very nice with less
understeer than some of the
competitors' offerings and better ride
than the Tacoma, which I also looked
-- Five speed transmission.
-- Bed extender.
-- 4.61 axle gearing.
-- Excellent dependibility
-- Excellent value for the $$$.
-- More low end torque. (Maybe the 3.4
or 3.8 V6?)
-- 2.73 or lower gearing in transfer
-- Redesign the front bodywork to
accomodate a winchmount and bumper,
please!!! (ARB or similar) The 2000
nose was MUCH better for that.
It's been almost 2 years and I'm still
loving this truck. It's by far the
best vehicle I've ever had. The style
and preformance cannot be match by any
of the other small trucks on the
market. I would still recommend this
truck to anyone. Just be sure to get
the long bed. Don't waste your time on
the short bed.
Overall, I really like my Frontier.
Its great for short trips in town or
long vacation trips. The crew cab
works out great for small to medium
size children. I highly recommend the
crew cab. It hauls kids, groceries,
and a full load in the cargo bed.
Would I buy another Frontier? YES!
I am very impressed with Nissan's
overall attention to detail with this
truck. This truck won out over some
tough competitors when it came time to
shop for a new vehicle. In fact Nissan
was not an original choice, whereas;
Ford, Toyota and GM were. Great job
Original style, looks, stance,
adaptability, road performance.
This truck is amazing. It does
everything you ask it to do and more.
Sure it could use a little more power
but nothing is perfect. Ride quality
is extremely smooth and quiet.
Interior design is almost perfect.
Plenty of space and high quality
materials. I don't know what they are
saying about the backseats, but they
seem plenty roomy to me.
6 speaker audio system is fantastic,
only compact truck to have it standard.
Obviously fuel economy needs major
improvement. Put the Altima 3.5 engine
in it for more power.
