We needed a replacement for our ageing `81 Toyota pickup. We liked the garagability and featured laden Nissan Crew Cab SE. We honestly enjoy driving the SE more than our `03 Honda CR-V, which we thought would never happen. The CR-V had set a safety president in our minds which our new Nissan has surpassed. The Nissan's head rests are leveraged in the event of a rear-end collision and low air pressure sensors are included in each tire. Side air bag curtains and posi-traction are options on our truck. We also like the fact that power windows remain working after the ignition key is removed. Now we have lots of confidence inspiring horsepower with which to merge our California freeways.
Driving comfort. We feel that we are similar in size to domestic trucks. Smooth powerful motor. Surprisingly quite ride. Closing the doors or the tailgate is almost silent. Precise feel of the rack-and-pinion steering. Solid looks. Reception and fidelity of the radio. Low maintenance schedule.
Around town gas mileage. Although we occasionally like the exhaust note we are not sure if it will be enjoyed on a long trip.
