2005 Nissan Frontier 4dr King Cab SE 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My dad bought his truck after his 2003 GMC Sierra had transmission problems for the life of the truck. I got to drive the Frontier around and wow, what a cool truck. It's very solid, and handles really well for a truck. The engine has a lot of power, but it doesn't pick up till after the revs get toward 3000 rpm. It has 2 glove compartments and storage between the seats, which is pretty nice too. Gas mileage isn't so great yet.


Favorite Features

Engine power, steering feel, suspension.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage.

2005 Nissan Frontier 4dr King Cab XE Rwd SB (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I traded a '98 Frontier with more than 130,000 miles on it. Dead reliable and relatively economical, but ride was harsh and interior uncomfortable for long trips. Nissan learned their lesson with the new Frontier. Very comfortable, roomier, and the increased torque make this heavier vehicle peppier than its predecessor. I got the plain jane of the line, but am very satisfied with the package. Toyota wouldn't try to find a 4 cylinder Tacoma, but the Nissan dealer was happy to and cut a great deal. Average 22 mpg around town; 24 on the road. Nice job, Nissan!


Favorite Features

Interior comfort. Standard tach. Good sound system. Fuel economy.


Suggested Improvements

Locking gas door.

Review

Too much low quality plastic inside easy to break. Engine noise after 4 months, it starts when RPM hits 2200, unable to fix by dealer and not recognize by Nissan as defect. It does not affect performance, but it's annoying.


Favorite Features

Powerful V6 engine, roomy interior, great bed features. Factory applied spray bedliner and a useful bed channel tie-down system.


Suggested Improvements

Uncomfortable back seats, too much plastic interior.
