2006 Nissan Frontier SE 4dr King Cab 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I use my truck for hauling, towing, hunting, and as a daily driver. I get around 18 mpg all around mostly in city driving with my mom driving a lot of them and she is bad at driving a stick shift. It has very good offroad capabilities. It is very fast and has a lot of power and torque. It has a very big bed and i can fit my yamaha kodiak (fourwheeler) in the back. People and edmunds often complain about the hard plastic interior, but you have to remember that this is a truck not a little car and hard plastic is tough and will last. Buy a Frontier


Best Features

6 speed manual, power, mpgs, high ground clearance, great ride, low road noise, and layout of controls


Worst Features

Better sound system hard wired for an ipod, better stock tires, 4x4 shifter and manual locking hubs ( more reliable), more skid plates

2006 Nissan Frontier SE 4dr Crew Cab SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Bought this after doing tons of research. Couldn't beat the value of what we got for our money. Would have preferred a Honda Ridgeline, but they just cost so much its silly. Drove lots of Toyota Tacomas, Ford Sport Tracs, and Frontiers. Nissan was the clear winner.


Best Features

Utili-track tie down system. Not much wind noise on the high way. Comfort and room. Power, power, and more power.


Worst Features

Gas mileage, but its what you pay for in having all that juice under the hood.

2006 Nissan Frontier LE 4dr Crew Cab SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Bought my 2006 Nissan Frontier LE Crew Cab in Sep 2006 new from the dealership. As soon as I test drove it, I bought it. I love the look of the roof rack (looks like the Xtera) The utilitrack bed system is awesome! I have hauled so much stuff in this truck. I added a Flow Master 40, and an AFE Cold Air Intake. Wow! What a difference. Much better sound, better power. MPG city went to about 18, hwy went to around 24. The only thing I don't like is the legroom. I'm tall, so it's difficult to find anything that has decent legroom. The adjustable seats are great, and very comfortable. Unless you are a general contractor or living on a farm, there is no need for a truck any bigger than this.


Best Features

The tie down system in the bed. The seats are great (adjustable hip height). It just looks great.


Worst Features

Better MPG. Radio controls on the steering wheel. Towing package installed on the LE.

2006 Nissan Frontier LE 4dr Crew Cab SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Ditto to what most have said about power, comfort and even the mileage isn't bad. Learn to drive with the flow and accelerate when necessary (not 20 feet from a red like most drivers!) and you can easily get 16-17 on street and I can get 24-25 on highway with cruise control from San Diego to LA.


Best Features

Just plain fun to drive!


Worst Features

Some of the plastic parts need a bit better alignment. Maybe a bit thicker leather like my Murano!
