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.
Go, go, go. The Supercharger winds up
and away you go. Do a lil 4x4 with it
and watch the mud fly.
The bed light and mid brake light had
water in it and failed. Took to
dealer, instant replacement @ no
cost. No other problems.
I purchased another Nissan soley due to
my previous XE-6 extended cab had no
problems in the 9 years I drove it
other than an $14 relay I
replaced in the ignition system. I've
had this one for 2 years and have
already had too many problems. After
only 3 months, my belts came off
while driving due to a failure of the
part that keeps the tension in the
belts. This year, the regulators in
both the front windows had to be
replaced when my windows would not roll
up. A piece on the wind shield for the
luggage rack broke and the whole
assembly had to be replaced. And now,
by CD player will not accept CDs.
The stlye and the ride (I have the
sport package and power package). The
long bed option.
Overall quality - very diappointed in
Nissan this time around since I owned
one previously with virtually no
problems. Fuel economy (although I knew
this buying it).
I BOUGHT MY TRUCK IN APRIL 2002. HAD
IT ONLY 6MTHS. WITH 14,000 MILES ON
IT . MY HUSBAND WAS CHANGING MY OIL &
FOUND IT HAD 2 LEAKS THE POWER STEERING
WAS LEAKING & THE TRANSMISSION WAS
LEAKING TOOK IT TOO THE DEALERSHIP.
NISSAN WOULDN'T PUT A NEW TRANSMISSION
IN IT . THEY HAD IT FOR 40 DAYS
REPLACING THE SEALS & THEY COULD OF
JUST PUT A NEW ONE IN , I DID THE LEMON
LAW ON THEM. I LOVED THE TRUCK
OTHERWISE & ALWAYS GOT COMPLIMENTS ON
IT . TOWING CAPACITY GOOD & GREAT IN
THE SNOW. POOR GAS MILEAGE THOUGH. I'VE
ALWAYS HEARD GOOD ABOUT NISSAN THATS
WHY I BOUGHT THIS TRUCK BUT THIS
EXPERIENCE HAS MADE ME THINK DIFFERENT
HANDLES GREAT IN THE SNOW, LOVED THE
LOOKS, FUN TOO DRIVE
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.
The center console is probably my
favorite feature. I also like the
tight turning radius.
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.
