2005 Nissan Frontier 4dr King Cab SE Rwd SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is the best truck I think I will ever own. My boyfriend has a 2000 Nissan Frontier, and all of our friends have variouse year model Frontiers and we all love them. We will keep these trucks after we get newer Nissans as a second vehicle for whatever purpose it may be needed for. We will own nothing other than a Nissan.


Best Features

Nothing

2005 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab SE 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I tried a Toyota and the Frontier felt more what I look for in a truck. It handles very well. The breaking system with 4 wheel disks are excellent with no pull or noise. The design of the cargo bed is outstanding. The bed is coated and the extended bed with the cargo tie down system gives you fexability. The power is most impressive. I have to drive in Philadelphia and they are the most selfish and inconsiderate drivers. Because of the power I am less likely to be cut off when pulling onto a highway, something that happened to me all the time. My past Frontier had 169,000 miles on it, original clutch. I hope this one gives me the same reliability.


Best Features

CD player sound system Indicator lights for tires, washer etc Tie down system and bed coating with extension


Worst Features

Gas mileage could be better. I am getting about 16.38 and 20 highway.

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


Review

I've had the Crew Cab Nismo (a.k.a. Gizmo) for 5 months now. It's one of the most fun to drive trucks that I've ever had. I was a little worried about the Nismo off-road package while on the road, but the stiffer suspension is fine in all but the roughest pot hole highways, where your back-end will try to beat out the front end at speed. The only imperfections that I've had is a rattle in the dash when its cold ( I haven't dropped it off for repairs until it stays cold so they can hear it), and the rubber stops on the tailgate fall off easy. I am RTV'ing them on when the replacements get here. Overall, I love the truck. I get an average of 16.5 mpg in town and 20 on long highway trips.


Best Features

Sunroof (listen to this Toyota....), The Rockford Fosgate CD player is awesome!!!


Worst Features

How about a "decreased power" button that decreases the engine power a tad, for a little better gas mileage? You don't always need all the 265 horses under the hood.....
