i got the truck on a friday, by the
following tuesday i didn't want it
anymore. at 200 miles the transmission
started shifting real hard and iratic,
to the point of when you get on the hwy
it literally slams you around. another
problem is after running the truck for
a while when you stop at a stop light
it runs rough and shakes. Another thing
when fueling the pump doesnt sense the
tank is full and keeps pumping and gets
gas all over(bad valve in tank). Lastly
occasionally when cornering the right
side speakers cut out.
makes me realize how much i should
never buy a nissan again
everything mechanical, improve ride,
and publish the truth about the fuel
mileage on the sticker(I only get 10-11
mpg hwy, and less in the city)
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.
After looking at Ford, Mazda, Jeep, and
Toyota our Frontier fit our budget for
our move to Alaska. We tested it out by
packing our bags for a two week
Christmas/New Years Vacation from Tucson
to Vancouver, WA. The trip up was great
and uneventful, but on the way back home
a winter blizzard was closing the
interstate as we drove through it.
While other 4x4s were using their
chains, ours stayed in the box and the
Nissan handled the snow-packed roads
with extreme confidence. We are looking
forward to taking this tough truck off
the road in North Central Alaska for the
next three years. Creature comforts and
toughness at a very reasonable price.
