2004 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab XE-V6 Rwd SB (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

i test drove all the others dealers and i could not find one truck i like driving and all the nissan trucks as well. i all most walk out of the dealer and went home, but i walk the last dealer and found this little compact truck o4 and test drove it and i loved to drive it. it drove like a car. it has nice looks, the bed is just wright for me small, it handles just like a nissan, breaking is fast, it could be a little faster at low speeds, but when you are at 60 and above i found out that this little truck will get up and go (looking down 85mph), and having the ac on in the summer and high 90's i get better gas 325 miles to the tank not bad for 16 gals.


Favorite Features

i added many extras to this little truck: vent shade all around, wind scoop for the front of the truck, bull bars on front and back, and the top for the bed fiberglass with lock, driver seat cover. its the best looking truck around, and alot of people like looking at her.


Suggested Improvements

nothing too add, may be more horse power.

2004 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab XE-V6 4WD LB (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I love the sporty looks of the truck. I believe the back seat needs some adjustments to accomodate more leg room and less seat room. The truck as a whole is awesome. At first I thought with a long bed I would not need a bed- extender to put my bike in the back. After having to leave the tailgate down to accomodate it, I figure that it would have been a good investment.


Favorite Features

One word, versatility. 4 doors plus a truck bed, you cannot go wrong. Innovative interior styling.


Suggested Improvements

More back seat passenger leg room. More power. Maybe a lower passing gear. Take off seems to be lacking.

2004 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab SVE-V6 4WD LB (3.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

This truck is overall a great compromise of practicality and fun. The S/C is good, and pulls very well when needed, could easily burn the rear tires if you wanted. Gets attention around town with its aggressive appearance and good looks, even though its mainly cosmetic. Long bed is just what it is, but on a crew cab its that much better. Space is tight for 4 6+ footers, but if you want space buy a Titan. Performance, fuel economy, and comfort can be remedied with some aftermarket items. In conclusion, if you want a great truck to go off roading with the wife and 3 kids with your motorcycle in the bed, this is the truck for you.


Favorite Features

Long bed, window defroster, collapsable storage box, bed extender, aggressive/one off styling, just enough room behind rear seat to put 2 JL 8 inch subwoofers and still keep jack in stock location, as well as enough room under front seats for your amps.


Suggested Improvements

suggested improvements you should make: 2.3 pulley for S/C will greatly improve HP, an intake and exhaust system for power and increased fuel economy, sound deadening mat in doors and behind rear seat, 2 8 inch subs, a tow package, and a A pillar dual gauge pod w/ boost meter and fuel ratio meter.

2004 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab XE Rwd SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I've had this pick-up for 9 months now, and it is ok. The ride is the biggest disappointment. The truck has a vibration when driving 40+, had at the dealership twice. They rebalanced the tires both times, but truck still has vibration. It also has numerous little rattles in the cab. On the positive side, you get a lot of options and a nice looking truck for a lot less than other models.


Favorite Features

The stereo ROCKS! Bucket seats and interoir design is really good.


Suggested Improvements

Needs more sound proofing. Quality is somewhat suspect.More room behind front seats so someone bigger than a 5 year old can ride in the jump seat.

2004 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab XE-V6 4WD SB (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Overall it's a decent truck but have been questioning its durability from day one. The drivetrain is clunky and loose and when in 2WD the gearbox has an annoying rattle which the dealer says is "normal for these trucks." The lack of true power would make one expect better gas mileage but both power and gas milegae suck. It does look great and I have enjoyed taking it off-road. And it came at a great price. However, my final thought on this truck after owning it a few months is, "You get what you pay for."


Favorite Features

My only favorite "feature" is how fun it is off-road.


Suggested Improvements

Either improve the mileage or improve the power... there's no reason both should be so bad. Smooth out the shifting linkage and remedy the gear rattle in the transfer case.
