2009 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab SE 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Buyer beware, Nissan is using poor quality parts, expect expensive repairs at 40,000 miles, sound familiar, putting cheap parts in cars how did that work out for GM. Do not waste your hard earned money on poor quality.


Suggested Improvements

Start using solid well manufactured parts.

2009 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab SE 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I've owned this truck for almost a year now and I am very happy. The truck drives very well and is tightly made. I commute in this truck and get about 19mpg on a regular basis (I have a bunch of stop lights to go through). This truck can do it all - commute, tow, haul, offroad!


Favorite Features

Versatility, bedliner, rail system, fold- up back seats, fuel economy (for a truck), looking tailgate, towing cpacity, quality, looks, 4wd


Suggested Improvements

More comfortable crew cab seats, larger side mirrors, mp3 player connection, even better fuel economy

2009 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab SE 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

After 6 months good power and economy combination, average low 20's unless in 4 wheel drive. OE tires are mediocre for snow and mud, but do fine on dry roads: disappointing to need new tires since I live in an area that has snow 4- 5 months. Surprised that neither the salesman or sales manager knew that this truck does have a break in period. More truck for the price than I could have gotten a Toyota for. Radio works well, even in fringe reception areas. Radio and heater controls are easy to reach and understand.


Favorite Features

Very comfortable on long trips, lots of room and good storage in the cab. Excellent heat and AC. Easy to handle and great visibility.


Suggested Improvements

If I had known that you cannot put tire chains on all 4 wheels before buying, would have looked elsewhere. A 4x4 truck that can only use limited clearance chains on the rear and no chains on the front is a real disappointment. My next truck will have room for standard chains all around.

2009 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab PRO-4X 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

solid pleasing performance, have had in some serious off road situations and it has tackled them with confidence, ride is a little stiff on highway but that was expected with this truck as equipped, good ground clearance, would like to see an upgrade in OE tires, but they have done well,i could do without the roof rack that came with the truck, the only off road issue has been the side step rails that I have scraped a couple of times


Favorite Features

stereo system is excellent, traction package useful, great power from engine, heated seats make wife happy


Suggested Improvements

longer center armrest on console,compass,temp in mirror would be nice, less plastic.

Review

Rides great for a truck. Good power from the 4.0V6.


Favorite Features

Engine and exterior design.


Suggested Improvements

Center console armrest is too short. Rear middle seat in crew cab doesn't have anchors for child seat. Recommend OE tires better than B ratings for traction and temperature. A power rear window would be nice.
