2003 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab XE-V6 4WD SB (3.3L 6cyl 4A)

Review

This truck replaced a leased 2001 Frontier CC 4WD 5-speed which was trouble free at 42K miles. Although we haven't had this '03 long, I believe that it is quieter and rides smoother than the '01 on the road. The automatic keeps the engine running at lower revs on the interstate, and that helps. I also like the seat fabric better on this '03 XE than the '01. Squeaks and rattles weren't a problem with the '01, but this truck feels very solid with virtually no rattles even over bumps and ruts. In summary, it has most everything I liked about our 2001 with some evolutionary improvements.

Favorite Features

The Crew Cab design is one of our favorites. Even though people rarely ride in the back, it's great to be able to easily stow stuff back there without hassling with the front seats. This is a great camping vehicle! The dark gray accessories really stand out on the XE models.

Suggested Improvements

Drop in the 3.5L for more power and quieter operation, increase rear leg room, improve fuel economy, bring back the big cupholder up front from the 2001. And, make the dark gray accessories (rook rack, step bars, bed extender, push bar, alloy wheels) optional on the SE.
