My 1997 Nissan truck has been one of the most dependable, reliable vehicles I have ever owned. The only problems I have ever had in 10 years of ownership are the alternator failed last year and the vehicle speed sensor failed about 2 years ago. One strange original problem was the truck leaned to the right, I also see many others like that. It turned out the torsion bar was not correctly adjusted from the factory, very easy to fix. I have to admit it does have a bumpy, stiff ride and it not the best on gas mileage, around 19 mpg.
