1996 Nissan Truck Regular Cab XE 2dr Regular Cab SB


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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

CUP HOLDERS!

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.


Best 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.


Worst Features

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.
