I purchased this 1991 "King Cab" pickup to haul household stuff, haul firewood, and commute 30 miles each way to work. This truck has NEVER let me or my wife down - not a dead battery, not a flat tire, NOTHING! This has been the most reliable and trouble free vehicle that I have ever owned - and I have owned quite a few. I am planning to sell it soon, though - my son will start driving in a couple of years and I want a vehicle with Airbags and ABS for him. Aside from that, I'd keep this truck another 19 years. Just so you know, though - I plan to buy a 1999 Nissan Pickup to replace this one. :)
i bought this truck from my grandfather with 238k miles on it. he in turn bought it from a guy in georgia in 95. he changed the oil every 3k. i do the same and its now gott 245k miles and is going strong. no major issues even after a minor wreck it still works flawlessly. i take it on 500 mile trips frequently and it gets me their at 75mph. i love this truck and will definitely be getting another nissan pickup when this one does die." if ever" great job Nissan you have won a lifetime customer . keep up the quality.
Even with less than ideal maintenance,
this vehicle just keeps churning.
Never has left me stranded at any
time. Starts and runs strong in hot or
cold. The interior wears very good and
is made for driving comfort. The only
gripes I have are the instrument
cluster lights have gradually gone out
from left to right. The bedliner
mounting system leaves alot to be
desired. The liner won't stay put. It
slides forward leaving the back corners
exposed and partially blocking the tie
down hooks which by the way are
Power, reliablility, adjustable
driver's seat, recessing tie down hooks
Better electronics, must improve the
securing of the bedliner, fuel economy.
Trucks this size should get better than
15/19 mpg even with the V6.
No major problems. Just the belts at
65,000 miles. Interoir air vents made
of plastic and fell off years ago. The
dash board has cracks in it also.
Overall a very reliable vehicle with
just basic oil changes.
