I previously owned the same truck with a regular cab and no 4 wheel drive.
Both trucks had the same engine and transmission and other than the 4 wheel drive parts this one is the same except it has power steering is that this one has power steering.
Both trucks have had easily over 300,000 miles
put on them and both kept right on going and have needed few mechanical repairs.
It was because of my previous experience with this truck that I immediately decided to buy the one I have now with no haggling even though I knew it had some minor issues.
I didn't care because
I knew that after I spent a few hundred on it, I would have a truck that would run dependably for years to come.
I bought this truck as my first truck and specifically refused to buy any other model or brand because I have such faith in Nissan. My father had a Nissan of the exact same year and she ran like the day he bought it until crashed. I personally could not be happier with my truck. A few issues, there's a catch in the idle; due to the temp sensor giving out somewhere in the 200k miles before I had it, the electric windows are giving out, and the fuel gauge is deceiving and hard to read. Fixed only minor maintenance and small upgrades. Never failed to start and never gave me any trouble. She's at 230k and runs so well I wish I could drive her for the rest of my life.

I wanted a small truck and the Nissan caught my eye over the Mazda that year. This truck has been to the tip of the Baja and back. No major problems and this 2wd was made to do some 4wdriving. This truck owes us nothing. $12500 back then and we've gotten our money's worth. I hope the next one is as good. I think there must be a record with the same clutch from day one and 15 years later.

I've always owned full size trucks in
the past so this is new for me. It's a
fun little truck to drive, it handles
great. I've yet to do any major work
to it. I just got back from a trip to
see my son three states away. A total
of 24 hours of driving there and back.
The truck didn't miss a beat. The one
big draw back was the lack of power.
They shouldn't be allowed to put 4cyl.
in these things. On flat ground, no
problem. But drive it thru W.Va. Man
what a drag. Also if you put over
sized tires on it be ready to watch
your fuel mileage go down big time.
But thats the way I bought it.

owned truck since 1995 and it has been
very reliable with normal routine
maintenance items. No significant
repair required. Solid truck. 4 wheel
drive handy in snow and for back
country. A little underpowered for
highway speeds going up hill, but great
