2005 Nissan Frontier 4dr King Cab SE 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
I've only had the truck for 3000 km, but so far I've been nothing but impressed. The shifting is smooth and the power is excellent. I've read some complaints about the gas mileage, but I just got back from a 2000 km road trip and averaged 24 mpg. For a new truck that has not been broken in I am satisfied. If you really need a truck you don't buy it to get 30+ mpg, you buy it to get the job done.
The power of the V6 and the gear spacings on the 6 speed.
I've already noticed some stone chips around the rear fender flares. This is due to the amount that the fenders stick out from the body. Running boards will solve this problem. Nissan does have a colour matched guard on the front of the flare but it is not large enough.
