Can't have it all, I guess?
By jshoota on


2002 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab XE-V6 4WD LB (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Has the gas mileage of a V8. 3.3L to small. I had to buy a high performance air filter and exhaust to help with the "get up". I liked the compact style, because I'm able to get in tighter more remote spots, than the bigger trucks. Even though the rear seating is cramped, my buddies and I dealt with it just fine, during the hunting seasons. Climbs up(with stock tires)with no problems, and some pretty steep inclines. I had to have my steering stoppers regreased, because they were squeaking/creeking on sharp U-turns w/bumps. Brakes started to make a high pitch squeak noise, when going 20-30 mph. Brake pads were fine, the discs needed to be resurfaced.

Best Features

300w fosgate stereo, and 6 cd changer. The longbed is a nice feature that other compact crews and some full crews don't have.

Worst Features

4.0 V6 engine. Open it up, pleeaase! raise suspension just a tad. Improve on gas mileage. Increase rear seating just a smidge.
