Tough Competent Truck
By Steve on
2010 Nissan Frontier SE 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
First pick-up I ever owned and compared to my current cars, Porsche Boxster and Infiniti G35, this took a little while to get used to driving. Needed to haul the typical stuff around for the house, the dog and 2 dirtbikes. The 6 cyclinder and automatic are an excellent combination. Very quick acceleration for a truck. Gas milage is around 20 on the highway. Was excellent in the heavy snow this winter. Just click it into 4hi and rip right through the snow. Pretty tall truck (good ground clearance). My wife wasn't to keen on a truck, but she admits it is easy to drive and park.
Love the Utilitrack rack system for hauling, especially 2 dirtbikes. The engine and tranny are very smooth and responsive. Haven't tried the hill descent control, but this truck seems like it will take you in and out of the woods without a problem. Safety, how about all those airbags!
2 problem areas. What is with the center armrest? Way to short in length. The headlights (non-HID) are awful & seem to be a safety hazard. Installed the optional foglights and that helped a bit. Check around the Nissan forums and you will see most have the same complaints.
