by Joe on Jan 28, 2009 Vehicle: 1996 Nissan Truck XE 2dr Regular Cab SB
Purchased 7 years ago. Currently has 120,000 miles. Previous owner did no maintenance. Few things had to be replaced. I love this pick-up. No squeaks or rattles. This is my daily driver and is also on second teenager driving. Everyone in the family loves to drive the truck. Also the oldest car we have! Replaced the std radio with CD/MP3 player and 4 speakers and MP3 connection. Gas mileage varies between 20 (city) and 25 (highway). Check Engine light is on half the time, but it goes away again. I just ignore it.

This was my fifth Nissan. I trust
them. This one got up to 28 miles to
the gallon on the highway. I had no
problems with it whatsoever. I had
one factory recall on it, but that was
it. It started, ran and performed
always. The only drawback was at 70
miles per hour on the freeway, it kind
of taxed it to kick on the air
conditioning. The seat could have
been more comfortable too.

This truck is essentially bullet proof.
The engine will go for 200k plus miles
with proper care (oil change and timing
chain every 90,000 miles should cover
it). What it lacks in horse power it
makes up for in torque. The auto trany
is smooth shifting. It Handles well and
is stable, even better with a few
upgrades. Bottom line: I had one recall
performed and zero unexpected
mechanical problems in six years of
ownership. I couldn't ask for a more
