A KEEPER, AT LEAST FOR NOW
By RUBICON4X4 on
2009 Nissan Frontier SE 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
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.
Very comfortable on long trips, lots of room and good storage in the cab. Excellent heat and AC. Easy to handle and great visibility.
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.
