1996 Nissan Truck XE 2dr Regular Cab SB

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.
