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.




Great little truck

Nissan is very Reliability. Good for driving to work and used around the house for yard work.

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.




Reliable transportation

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 dependable vehicle.

Its been a decent little truck. It may have hauled more than some full size trucks have over the years.

The Nissan Frontier has been an extremely dependable truck. At 82,000 miles the oil and tires are all I have ever changed. Great value and a great truck.
