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


I bought this car brand new in 06...it was an 05. It has cost me thousands of dollars since then with a number of problems. Fuel sending unit, 02 sencors , Starter, Then ...the first time it needs to be smogged because I;m in Ca. it is 1,970.00. Oh ya ...I had already replaced the radiator because it was leaking radiator fluid into the transmission. I did that myself for around 300.00. Now that I have had it smogged and can drive it to have the transmission checked...I find out the transmission needs to be rebuilt. $2,400 minimum. This thing has cost me almost 6,000 so far and barely has 100,000 miles on it. The dealer and Nissan USA both gave me the bird on every issue. Nissan sux

Best Features

nothing makes up for all the problems and poor fuel economy.

Worst Features

Nissan should be able to make a vehicle that will go at least 150.000 miles without major problems. Nissan should stand behind their vehicles and recall the problems instead of trying to do the minimum. Shame on Nissan USA.
