1997 Nissan Truck XE 2dr Regular Cab SB


I've had my little Nissan for about three years now, and I'm about as impressed as I can be. She just won't die. Don't get me wrong, I'm not TRYING to kill her--she sees regular maintenance, and I always let her warm up on cold days... With that considered, we've gone 156,000 hard miles (on and off road) together with only minor problems (water pump/thermostat at 110,000mi, and a Throttle Position Sensor at 140,000mi). Now, she's not that pretty, but damn she's loyal. I could see her hitting 250k easy. If you need a work truck, or just simple reliable transportation. You can't go wrong with these old Nissan trucks.

Best Features

(1) Durable. (2) Simple. (3) Great towing ability for such a small truck. (4) Very easy to work on (I replaced the water pump on a highway in the pouring rain, and it still only took thirty min.)

Worst Features

(1) Snake belt instead of old fashioned V-belts. (2) Improved front suspention w/ less roll in turns. (3) 15" wheels instead of 14" on 2WD.
