I've put 8,000 miles on this truck so far, including hundreds on gravel and dirt through a Wyoming winter, and I have no regrets.
No warranty issues of any kind.
The V6 has plenty of power and the steering and handling are excellent on and off pavement.
I considered the Tacoma since I like the looks slightly better, but Toyota has had some serious quality/recall issues with the Tacoma over the last 10 years.
That, and the fact that toyata wants a few thousand more for an equally equipped truck leaned me toward Nissan.
The Frontier is indeed a rugged, no-nonsense truck.
I expect to drive it for many years.
BTW, JD Powers just ranked it the top midsize pickup for 2012.
