2010 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X 4dr King Cab 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
A big improvement over my old chevy S10. Very quiet and comfortable highway ride, reasonable economy (19.1 mpg after 1000 miles). Impressive acceleration and thoughtful bed rail system are appreciated. However, it lacks in available amenities. Every road bum sends an annoying jump up the steering wheel. The auto-transmission keeps going into overdrive too soon, it's especially bad going uphill and the manual override is poorly implemented. However, at startup, the rear wheels spin very easily. The gas pedal is too light and has poor feedback. Also, the brake feels soft and unresponsive. Lastly, I keep activating wipers inadvertently - too close to the steering wheel.
civilized ride for a truck, sharp looking exterior, bluetooth phone connection, comfortable front seats
strength rear bumper, reduce turning radius, better feedback on steering, more luxury: leather and heated seating on king cab, heated auto-dimming mirrors, auto-climate, improve cheap interior plastics, add rear defrost, make manual tranny readily available, improve brake, redesign wiper switch
