1996 Nissan Truck XE 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Economical, Reliable. The sliding rear window. A/C.


Suggested Improvements

CUP HOLDERS!

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage, comfort, easy steering, reliability, space, etc.


Suggested Improvements

Slow, but with teenagers driving I should maybe move it to favourite feature!

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Simplicity, I can fix it myself on the rare occassion that something should go wrong. High resale value and low low low cost of ownership. Fit and finish quality is oustanding accept for one rattle on the firewall.


Suggested Improvements

GAS MILEAGE, maybe the fronteer is better on gas, but I doubt it. Quiet the squeeks and pops in the suspension, front and rear. The sliding rear window rattles on the highway sometimes.
