Go Smitty GO 281k miles and still going a 100 miles a day to work and back. My major repairs have been a starter at 140k and a water pump at 230k. I bought this baby new in 94 and Smitty is more then I could ever have hoped for. Smitty is MY HERO. I change the fluids and Smitty runs.....did I mention that I get 27 miles to the gallon ? Oh I guess I did...see u around. Forever Smitty

The Nissan Hardbody pickup performs all the requirements of a truck well. It cost me so little money that when I look at this truck I see a luxury car in the bank. This truck is so basic, I did have to customize it a little to make it more enjoyable, such as adding a tonneau cover, radio, a ball on the bumper, air shocks, rims, and cup holders.

I purchased my 1994 Nissan truck new and it now has 267,000 miles on it. I haven't had to do that much to it besides the normal routine tune-ups, brake job, clutch. It's never left me stranded and I trust it even now with so many miles. The A/C still blows cold and the engine still purrs down the road with plenty of power for a four banger. I'm a true believer in these old hard bodies. Party at my house when she turns 300,000 miles.

I've got nothing but love for this truck. I'm a landscape gardener and I've hauled loads of mulch, stone, gravel, topsoil and plants in excess of 1500 lbs (sometimes even more than that) consistently for 5 years. I'm not that great on maintenance, but this truck is rock solid. It lost an alternator at 90K and that's all. Nothing else has needed replacement. I've driven it across the country and back as well. She's getting tired, with 155K, so I'm going to retire her and buy a 97 or 98. I've also got a 94 Toyota P/U and it can't handle weight like the Nissy.

I bought the truck new and have
120,000 miles on it. It has never let
me down, literally the only things
replaced on the truck are the shocks,
front brake pads (both at the 100,000
mile mark), regular spark plugs and
wires and oil/filter changes. The
performance above 3000 RPM is great.
Good fuel economy. I would like more
interior room so I think I'll get a
full-size truck next time, but if you
want a truck that keeps on running for
very little money this is the one for
you. Gas, oil and all maintenance
items have cost me less than $.06 per
mile, an unbelievably low cost in

I bought my truck in 95 and have over
108,000 miles on it. The only
mechanical trouble was a leak in the
intake gasket, water pump, and problems
caused by incompetent mechanics. Gas
milage isn't bad. I get around 23 mpg
with a heavy foot.
The dollar per mile cost of this truck
makes it a terrific buy!
