Two days arfter purchasing this truck I drove from Dallas to Seattle. Since then, I've driven to San Francisco, Las Vegas, Missouri and New Mexico. I've never had a problem. I take it off road frequently and love it. I wish I would have gotten an off-road package, but I'm still very happy with it.
The util-track in the bed is awesome. I also love the storage spaces underneath the backseat. Also, of all the 4dr trucks I looked at the Frontier has the largest backseat and back doors. I easily fit 5 large guys in my truck comfortably.
Some people that ride with me complain of a bumpy ride. It would be nice if it were smoother, but I enjoy the bumpy truck ride.
I waited for a long time to purchase a midsize truck and I am glad I did. Love this truck. Love the horsepower. Love the exterior design. Love the quality. Love the build in tie-down system in the truckbed. GREAT vehicle so far.
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.
Powerful V6 engine, roomy interior, great bed features. Factory applied spray bedliner and a useful bed channel tie-down system.
Uncomfortable back seats, too much plastic interior.
This review is specifically for the 2x4 Crew Cab SE w/ 6-speed tranny. This truck looks nice and has nice features in and out and the interior controls and gauges are well thought out, but threr are a couple of things I dislike. The front suspension is so stiff that it does nothing to absorb the freeway bumps and constantly throws my body from side to side on uneven terrain such as dips and driveways. The tires take all the abuse bouncing over the bumps. It's almost unbearable. The other thing I dislike is the electronic throttle control which has a decceleration delay of about 1 second and makes smooth shifting very hard to master. I just don't understand the thinking behind this.
Exterior looks. Super super quiet even at high speeds. Easy to maneuver in the ever-shinking parking lots. Although the interior is kind of bland, it's very comfortable and everything is well placed. Not a bad sounding sound system with descent bass.
Suspension/handling, A more positive throttle response. Interior materials. vent controls. Gas lid spring that actually holds the lid open. That's all so far.
