I love the design of this truck. I
compared it with the Toyota Tacoma
before I bought it. This is definitely
a better truck. The Tacoma looks too
plain and a little too conservative
for my taste. The interior design of
the Frontier is the best in its class.
Overall a great truck for a very
My favorite features on the Frontier
are the part-time 4-wheel drive sytem
and the long bed. It's very easy to
engage, shifts very smooth. I tested 4-
wheel Low in foot-deep snow and it
went through it without any
hesitation. With the long bed, the
wheel base is longer and so the ride
is less choppy.
My only minor complaint as with all
trucks, is that the fuel mileage needs
to be a little better.
This Frontier is a nice truck. The long bed is actually large enough to carry some cargo. Towing capacity is good. The crew-cab is very handy for carrying stuff or kids, a little tight for adults on a long trip. Rides and handles very well for a truck. The crew cab and long bed makes it a nice compromise between a compact and full size truck. Fuel economy has become more important lately: my Frontier gets about twice the mpg of my friend's Chevy full-size, and about 6 more mpg than another friend's Toyota 4-cyl 5- speed Tacoma!
The styling really caught my eye. The back seat with regular doors is very nice. Quality is first rate (I've owned Nissan cars before, quality has been great). All 4 windows lower all the way down. Fuel economy is good for a 4WD truck.
Rear doors could swing open a little wider. That's about it... like I said, its a nice truck.
I looked for a while at smaller 4dr
trucks. I liked the toyotas but I
could not find any in my area. A
friend said he was looking at the
Frontier. I took a look and loved
it. It could be a little faster but I
did trade an 02 Mustang GT for it so
that may be why I think it is a little
slow. Love the 6 disc cd player and
the styling of the truck. Towing
capacity was also a big plus since we
were buying a boat. I have two little
ones and you do have to move the front
seats up a bit so the car seats fit
but I have also fit 5 adults in it for
an hour and a half with no complaints.
I have the basic 4-cylinder king cab
XE. It's fun to drive and the creature
comforts are pretty decent. Although
the interior design and material have
a cheap plastic feel to them,
espcecially the knobs for the
AC/Heater. Great truck for the price.
The four cyclinder version is a little
weak and takes awhile to get to
I love the exterior styling.
