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.

Gas mileage could be better. I am getting about 16.38 and 20 highway.
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.
Sunroof (listen to this Toyota....), The Rockford Fosgate CD player is awesome!!!
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.....

A thoughtful redesign since my 2003 model Crew Cab 4x4. Interior space is vastly improved, particularly in the rear seat area. Adults can actually ride comfortably in this space. Both engine power and fuel economy are greatly improved, thanks to the all new 4.0 V6 and 5-speed A/T.
I like the storage space under the rear seat cushions for heavy, bulky items like tools, tow chain, etc. Also a nice interior hiding space to keep valuable items out of sight.
