I bought this truck brand new while stationed at FT. Sill, OK. I used this truck to pull the biggest U-Haul trailer (I think it's a 6'x12') from there to Kansas City, MO. That's about 455 miles. It was stuffed to the roof with belongings, including the interior of the truck, and the bed. It pulled it wonderfully at about 70 MPH the whole way. Only got about 7 miles to the gallon, but I was pulling roughly 3,000 lbs. I bought a reciever hitch to pull the trailer. I haven't had a single problem with it, 4WD works great in snow and having fun in the muck.
roof rack and extendable bed. 4WD (of course).
5-speed auto. factory lift kits (suspension, not body)
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.
I bought my truck used with 500 miles
with everything but leather. Its my
main vehicle and my family car. I've
got 60k miles on it and haven't had any
problems. I've taken it off the road a
couple times and seems to do a decent
job at it for a two wheel drive. Seems
to go where you want it to in the
slippery stuff. Tires like to spin on
wet pavement by the way or maybe I've
just got a heavier foot. Havent spent
much time in the back seats myself but
had some heavier inlaws back there for
a twelve hour trip with out to many
complaints. I've also had it about as
full as you can get it cargo wise and
dosen't seem to effect the ride,
acceleration or handling much.Go with
the l. bed version.
The running bars, roof rack, adjustable
drivers seat, available accesories.
Multiple ac outlets. towing capacity
A few more horse power. 4 wheel disc
breaks. Thats about it.
Great truck and very good looking,
cause it has been complemented alot!!!
Fun to drive, definitely!!!!! Gas
mileage could be better but I think it
is geared pretty low in the higher
gears!!!!!! Back seat is a little
tight for the average adult but my
kids love it!!!
The big truck ride and take off power.
Nissan needs to improve the gas
mileage, increase leg room in back
seat and raise the instrument cluster
up some as it tends to be too deep
into the dash making it hard too see
during daylight hours.
This truck is great. You get the best
parts of an SUV, but you still have the
convenience of a truck bed. Great
towing capacity and the long bed makes
it very stable. Back seat is a little
cramped, but fine for younger kids,
dogs or just storage. I only average
about 19 MPG which I think could be a
little higher. Funny thing is that it
never seems to differ between hwy and
city, or even towing my boat.The 3.3
liter is tough and strong, but not
quite the pick I was looking for. I
wish Nissan offered the 3.5 liter V-6
in the Frontier. I think that would be
the icing on top and make this truck
Interior design, great exterior looks,
roof rack and side step bars are very
convenient and the long bed is of
Get rid of the speed limiter, offer the
3.5 liter V-6 in the Frontier and a
little bit more room between the
steering wheel and the driver's door.
Maybe a little bit more ground
clearance and offer a 16" wheel/tire
