Nasty Little Truck
By BGL on
1994 Nissan Truck XE 2dr Regular Cab SB
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.
Great gas mileage. Tight turning radius. Deep bed. Indestructable, decently powerful 2.4L engine.
Loud wind noise. No cup holder. Spare tire mount rusted off.
