The 2004 Nissan Frontier may not be a handsome truck but it does the job and at the right price. I would have preferred it to have a larger engine and more leg room in the rear, however I knew what I was buying so if I want to gripe about something it should be my thin wallet. This truck's best feature is its functional long bed.
The long bed.
This truck has too much plastic, from the frontend to the dash! The tachometer is hard to read when the sun is in front and sunglasses are worn.
Allright, so I've put 79,000 miles on my truck in less then three years. My driving includes a little of everything, city, highway, even some off road. But to be honest it's handled it pretty well. Recently though I did start having some issues, 1st: the taigate handle started to break and mad useing it very diffucult, but it was a easy $50 fix 2nd: Drivers side window knob broke, **** happens... BIG PROBLEMS- 4th: Throw-out bearing has worn, new clutch- $500+ 5th: Service engine litgh came on- O2 sensors need to be replaced first, possible the cat convertor. Still in the end I've treated this truck poorly so in the end these problems could be expected.
Had I bought the S10 or Ranger
I'm sure I would have had more problems,
and would have paid more for them.

This truck has no power, and the gas
mileage is terrible. There is not much
room at all inside. The hauling
capacity is mnot that bad for a small
truck, but if I have to haul alot of

This is my 2nd nissan pick-up. Had last
one for 8 years with no major problems.
The bench seat was wearing me out before
I could wear the truck out. I love this
truck and it is much improved over my
older 96. The four wheel drive goes
terrific in the snow up here in New
England! I'm 5'8" and have plenty of
room in the truck, I think though that a
large person might be cramped. A friend
of mine was looking at a Dodge, I
steered him towards the Nissan and he
loves his truck as well. I fully expect
to drive this truck for atleast 10 to 15

longer mud flaps
a mud guard/shield inboard of the step

They go along way towards keeping the
truck clean an step rail clear of road

Better gas mileage.
