2002 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab SE-V6 4WD LB (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Looks great, drives great, very affordable compared to other compacts, nice inside and out.I would only consider the Toyota or Nissan, would not consider V8s or Dakota.Checked out new Colorado it seemed chincy and cheap yet $25K. This is a great truck for the money. We paid $18K for used '02 SE/LB with 22K mis.The previous owner took great care, looked like new has extra goodies like spray in liner, nerf bars, and after market security.Toyota is crazy they wanted $20K for a used Tacoma with 50K mis.Would not consider new. Worse, all Tacomas are short beds. With cost savings over Tacoma we bought an 84 mo. b to b extended warranty.

Best Features

Looks, ride and handling, locking tail gate, controls, fit and finish in and out. Seats are comfortable material is durable (100% Poly) yet stained as others have mentioned. Dealer is shampooing, I expect stains will lift from 100% Poly. Will scotch guard or something.

Worst Features

Poor power & mpg. Got 16.5 on first two tanks. Added K&N filter and noticed immediate improvement in performance across the RPM range, still assessing impact on MPG. Plan to install true duals once factory exh goes. Probably adding hard tonneau they say that is good for a couple MPG.
