2006 Nissan Frontier SE 4dr King Cab 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
I really did love my Toyota, it saved my life from a 5 time DUI villain. The truck and I both sustained injuries but Toyota did not survive. I test drove both. In the end I went with Nissan for the following reasons. Nissan offers a king cab 4wd v-6 six speed for about the same price as a reg cab 4wd 4 banger Tacoma. Also the Nissan has alot more room inside. When I was hit, I cracked my head on the doorpost. I know several Tacoma owners who have identical scars. The reason is, the doorpost on a Tacoma is about 2 inches from your head.The Frontier is just much more truck, drives like a caddie, stronger v-6 than my 96 Firebird, and 6 speed gets 20 mpg. And somehow I found an honest dealer
6 speed is wonderful, styling is best on market, VERY strong v6. It drives like a large car with hardly any road noise. Best truck I've ever owned. Passenger seat folds into perfect cube so as to have a writing or laptop surface. VERY COOL!!
Needs a little more interior storage, such as seat pockets. Although dual opening glove compartment can't be beaten.
