2010 Nissan Frontier SE 4dr King Cab 6.1 ft. SB (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
This is 3rd Nissan Truck and it's an improvement! My first truck that I buy w/ an automatic transmission. Pluses: Mid-size truck feel, handsome exterior, smooth shifting automatic transmission, big cargo bed, firmer truck ride, lot's of interior storage, durable cloth seats, power package/keyless entry, back doors that swing open to allow the the occasional passengers. Folding side mirrors, side airbags, anti-lock brakes, and bigger fuel tank. Lots more cargo room than my last Frontier! Reputation for reliability and better resale value than most domestic trucks. Today's vehicles have lots of interior plastics, and Nissan uses quality plastics.
I like the look and the feel of Midsize truck. Nissan has moved away from the old compact truck, and added more aggressive/masculine looks, bigger/wider cabin/bed. Great functionality for a truck: Light hauling, great daily commuter, and more room for passengers.
For 2010 model: old/Bland stereo on the SE (4cyn). Installed an after market stereo w/ bluetooth/USB/M3P disk player. Installed a Magnaflow muffler, K and N air filter for better performance/fuel economy. Back seats would be more comfortable sideways (according to my passengers). Higher price tag.
