Had the truck for 2 weeks and absolutely love it so far. The powerful V6 265 HP engine is matched up nicely with the smoooth 5 spd automatic tranny. Interior noise is pretty low for a truck and the highway ride is about the best I've experienced (for a truck). Overall pretty pleased and the dealer price was 2000 under invoice. Can't wait to take it offroad - right now I'm conquering Baltimore city potholes with ease.. Tested the Toyota Tacoma and Ford Explorer Sport Trac. The Frontier easily bested the Ford. The Tacoma's cheap bed liner, uncomfortable seats, and lack of power and comfort when compared to the Frontier made it a pretty easy choice (not to mention a $3000 price diff)
-Utility of Bed: Tiedown tracks, sprayon line, locking tailgate, swingout extend. I added a soft tonneau cover as well. -Rockford Fosgate Stereo - Rocks worth the extra money. -Sunroof -Ride Comfort on the highway -Power of the Engine -Looks of the truck in general
Interior hard plastic can be damaged easily. LE Tires aren't really meant for offroading though they are pretty quiet on the highway. Plastic inside cover on the tailgate scratches (why didn't they just spraycoat it??). Gas mileage could be better (get 21 highway / 16 city ~19 average)
