2003 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab XE-V6 Desert Runner Rwd SB (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My previous truck was a 95 Nissan Hardbody XE V6 ext Cab. I traded it in on my current truck and only had to replace the fan belt when it broke at about 100k. Loved that Truck. I have had numerous issues with this one however. I have had to replace the clutch and the AC compressor at 62k. The speed sensor had been on its way out since before then, and finally quit outright at about 85k. Now at 95k and need to replace AC comp again. Nissan dealer installed it.


Best Features

Great ground clearance and very capable off road. Ample power for a 4000 lb truck with a manual tranny


Worst Features

Gas mileage poor considering its a v6, not v8. Overall engine reliability and better placement of back spark plug

2003 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab XE-V6 Desert Runner Rwd SB (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Really enjoy this truck. Rides and drives well and yet feels like a truck. Much better value in my opinion than Prerunner.


Best Features

Solid feel, interior layout, extended cab and a full bed!


Worst Features

None at this point. My previous Hardbody had nearly 300,000 miles so it's hard to suggest any improvements with that type reliability and longevity.
