1997 Nissan Truck Extended Cab XE 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

Love this truck. It starts in the worst winter conditions unconditionally. It still looks good except for rust that has started at the top of the roof and extends all the way across. I have had several people offer to buy or trade for it since the day I bought it. Very clean and other than general maintenance has been a very solid truck. Would not hesitate to buy a new one. Nissan did this right.


Best Features

Reliability, comfort, gas mileage.


Worst Features

None.

Review

Bought new in 97. Used to tow metro from town to town and for door to door delivery. Put almost 25,000 miles a year first 3 years. Only 2 issues, valve covers started leaking at 12,500, 500 miles out of warranty, and power steering hose runs over alternator. Hose is poorly designed and has been a recurring problem, starts to leak about every 3 years and is quite expensive. If not replaced immediately will leak into alternator and burn it out. Even as a 2wd with about 400# in back gets around good even in moderate snow, ice and mud.


Best Features

Reliability. This truck was used hard for its first three years and took it great. It has enjoyed the last 10 years as a daily driver with minimal issues.


Worst Features

An after market kit to reroute the power steering house, and a better design so that this $200 does not wear out after a few years.

Review

Bought my 1997 Nissan Pickup new when Nissan as clearing them out to make room for the Fronter. It's been a great trunk with no problems, just normal maintenance. which I do myself. Not very good on gas, I average around 21 MPG at times when mostly driving highways 25-26 MPG. Replaced the really weak radio and speakers.


Best Features

Reasonably priced, cheap to run. Flip open windows in the back for the dog.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage, power windows/locks,

Review

Bought this truck used from one who took very good care of it. It has been a great truck thus far. Would buy again. Willing to trade off it being a bit underpowered at times , loaded on steep hills for dependability and better fuel performance than my one ton truck gas sucking hog.


Best Features

Comfortable driving truck,very dependable after 35+ k miles put on it.


Worst Features

Four door would have been nice w/ tools and kids.

Review

This truck has been the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. It has been through the construction of two homes, two teenagers and it still looks good and runs even better. It has never been in the shop for other than routine maintainence.


Best Features

Durability and useability are this vehicles strenghts. It is not as plush as other small pick-ups but, simplicity prevails in the long haul.
