Never buying another Nissan trk
By Johngroober on
1996 Nissan Truck SE 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
My Nissan Pickup was good for about 100,000 miles then the manual transmission went out three times in a row. First the bearings in the transmission went out at 100,000 miles. Then the Synchronizer went bad six months later. I think that it was the mechanic's fault. He should have known to replace the synchronizer along with the bearings. After he got that fixed. The truck has never shifted the same. Later, 5th gear started coming out and eventually the transmission went out for the last time. My dad plans to fix it again the right way and sell it. He plans to buy a real truck this time, a Toyota. I think the transmission could have been my dad's fault for towing around our bass tracker boat.
The mileage stinks. It needs to be better. They didn't make V6's engines that year beacause they were bad. My neighbor up the street had one and the motor went out at 10,000 miles. It would be nice if the trucks were more reliable.
