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.
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
Bucket seats with lumbar support.

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
salt and ice.
Better gas mileage.
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.
