Bought my pick-up used in 1996. I have
since then racked-up 180,000 miles on
the odometer! The ONLY thing I have
ever had to replace was an ignition
relay (twice), and that only cost $15
each time. My truck is a five speed,
and I have never had to replace the
clutch! Nobody believes me, but the
original clutch is still in it! The
engine still runs strong, does not
leak, and does not smoke. With regular
maintenance (like I've always
performed) I wonder just how long it
will last?! Great job Nissan! This is
I've had my hardbody since I got out of school, gave it H*&& since. Got 250k on it and it still starts every time, runs as good as the day I got it with 124k. Had to put a couple trannys in it but like I said, I drive the heck out of it. Very tough engine, takes beating after beating but always changed oil on time.
my Dad purchased this truck new from the dealership in 1993, and after 15 years decided to pass it on with 180,000 miles. All I can say is great truck. Had its first brake job at 201,000; clutch at 194,000. Two starters, but not much else. I will keep this one for a long time.
Fun to drive and reliable.
