I just traded my baby. Very reliable
for 13 years but I needed a van.
Simple design and built to last. The
paint did wear off from being in the
sun but that's to be expected.
Excellent truck, good power, never left
me stranded unless I left the lights on!
I Have had this truck for 12 years, and
there is a reason that I have never
wanted to sell it, nothing ever breaks
or goes wrong with it. Currently it
has about 120,000 miles on it and it is
still running strong. I firmly believe
that Nissan builds their trucks to take
abuse and that is what we have dished
out to this little truck. From mud
bogging to commuting, it has taken
everything we can dish out and still is
The 134horses and the five speed.
The Cherry red pearl paint and the body
moldings have not held up so well over
the years even with proper care.
Purchased the truck in 1991 with 12
miles on the odometer. As the years past
and I developed arthitis in my
shoulders, arms, hands, hips and knees
it has become difficult to drive with no
power steering and manual trans. The
truck now has 131,000 miles, still looks
great and runs great. The only repairs
in 12 years are a clutch master cylinder
($187.00) and A/C charge including belt
replacement ($131.00) all other expenses
were maintenance. This truck performed
so well I just purchased a 2003 Nissan
P/U with power steering and auto trans.
Looking for another 12 years of trouble
Ease of maintenance. Seems the
designer/builder had the do-it-yourself
or professional in mind when designing
tune ups, brake pad/rotor replacement,
belt adjustments, etc.
Replaced timing chain assembly & rear
brake shoes @ 70000 mi., significant
body work @ 60000 mi., otherwise just
routine maintainance for nearly 12
years. 25 mpg commuting, 30 mpg
highway. Excellent second vehicle. I
expect to run it for at least another 3
Fun to drive. Handles extremely well
in snow with about 150 lbs added weight
The driver and this truck are both too
old to worry about improvements. Just
hope I continue to work as well as this
