2003 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab XE Rwd SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I test drove all the light duty trucks before I bought this in 2007.
Tacoma was small, lower to the ground, and more bouncy.
Mazda felt loose, Ranger couldn't touch the interior space.

The Nissan is stable, feels larger than others, has great towing capacity (3000#), and I get 27 mpg.
For the size, it has power you wouldn't expect.
Best of all, it has had no major problems, and that's at 175,000 miles.


Best Features

Towing Height Gas Mileage


Worst Features

Factory sound isn't all that great. No iPod hook up.

Review

Nice rig. I had a 1994, same setup,
4cyl 5spd. Very dependable. Had a
problem with the seats on long
commutes. The seats would cut off
circulation to my legs. I wound up
retro-fitting some 280Z seats. I
thought they had this solved in the
newer rigs. No way! This is not the
car for a 6' tall man.


Best Features

Looks good, runs good, dependable


Worst Features

Get an adjustable seat in these things. Even the KIA Rio has a better seat than this.

Review

Cheaper than Toyota and you get what
you pay for. Auto dumped all tranny
fluid at 1507 miles (yes, brand new).
Nissan USA's response - refill fluid and
have a nice day.

Truck looks nice and gets excellent
mileage on the back of tow truck.
Can't operate defroster independent of
A/C, shift lever blocks controls.
