We purchased a Nissan because we believed in it's superior quality.
We believed that we would have a truck that would easily last us 10 years.
However, after just 4 years - and almost nearing to paying off this truck's loan - we experienced what other forums show is a common manufacturer defect.
At high mileages, Frontiers may experience a break in its radiator, causing coolant to mix in with transmission liquid.
Even though we have been excellent Nissan clients, bringing in our Nissan for regular servicing to ensure it lasts long...we've been hit by this defect.
So, the non-reward for taking care of our truck is having recently paid approx. $6k..
...for a new radiator & transmission.
Favorite features: Used to be our favorite that this was a Nissan.
Our hope and trust in the Nissan brand - because of this experience - has diminished significantly.
We recommend that Nissan take a good long hard look at inspecting & testing their vehicles before selling them on the market.
Don't sell a vehicle that consumers think will last a long time, but ends up cutting them short.
And please don't offer a recall that applies to vehicles that "may experience a radiator crack @ high mileages," but only allow the recall to apply to vehicles of 80,000miles or less.
This is very contradictory & completely not in favor of winning return clientele.
