2007 Nissan Frontier SE 4dr Crew Cab 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
I checked out the Tacoma and the Ridgeline prior to purchasing the Frontier. I didn't like the Tacoma ride and the cost. The Ridgeline was very nice, but not "trucky" enough for me. The ride and feel are so much better than the 2005 Ranger I traded. I have owned two other Nissans and this is the best yet.
Four doors makes life much easier. The ride is very smooth and the truck has all the power I need and then some. Averaging about 18.5 mpg.
Sugested improvements: Smaller turning radius. Higher payload capacity. The truck seems to squat with a relatively small load of firewood. Change the indicator light so that it is more noticeable when you are in 4x4.
