I selected Frontier over all other pickups after extensive research. With 2,000 miles on it I have experienced no problems. It handles well and tows a small bass boat without effort. Engine power and torque is more than adequate and fuel economy has met EPA predictions for this model. It is also nice that all its performance is with regular gas. Well worth the price paid. With the large tires I have occasionaly felt feedback in the steering wheel on rough roads.
Acceleration, handling and size are hard to beat. The crewcab interior space is also a plus with various rear seat folding options. I also like the mean looking little front grill.
The center console arm rest should be moved forward for more right arm support. The truck should come standard with door guards in SE models.
