I LOVE this truck! I initially wanted this vehicle because of the aggressive styling, but ultimately bought it for the value and practicality. Even for a small V6, it can move if it needs to. I don't have the same mileage issue as most people (I get about 20 per gal) and I have a bit of a lead foot. No mechanical troubles, except that the check engine light went on when I put on a locking gas cap. With the birth of my second child, I found that the backseat can't handle an infant carseat without squishing the front passenger. Still I only paid $17,500 including the optional power and sport packages, so this is truly the best vehicle I have ever had for the money.
Super fun to drive, nice options and very practical.
More room in the backseat, better customer service at the dealerships. They treat you like dirt AFTER you've already bought the vehicle. They charged me $80 to reset the check engine light and, after reading the manual, I found that the light would have reset itself after changing the gas cap back.
This is my third Nissan pickup in the
last 18 years. So far it is starting
out like the other two, no problems. I
still own my 93 and plan to give it to
my son when he turns 16. What can I
say? I wouldn't have bought three in a
row if they weren't a great little
truck. I have nothing against Toyota,
except that they cost about $2k more
when compared to Nissan.
Driving height, drivablity,
mechanically dependable and style. I
love to drive my truck, sometimes I
take the long way home. My 93 never
gave me any problems or left me
stranded. My 03 seems to be of the same
quality, I will probably drive it for
another 10 years?
Gas millage! Another 3 to 5 miles per
gallon would be nice? But my millage
could be affected by my "putting my
foot into it" mentality it have?
