I was given this truck to drive as soon as I got my license, and so far it's been a fantastic first car. Since first buying it ten years ago, we've put roughly 78,000 miles, driving the odometer up to 150,000 or so as a daily driver. So far it's been fairly reliable, fun to drive, as well as a great car to learn stick in. Pros- Great interior ergonomics, decent power, great transmission, reliability, comfortable, rugged looks. Cons- Terrible gas mileage (I average 14 MPG or so), cramped backseat, poor acceleration Overall I would recommend this truck if you're looking for a well put-together compact pickup
I have a 1999 Datsun frontier King cab Iim putting a 3" body lift with 32" /11.50 /15 I love this truck because I could do anything to it . If any one wants to get a truck and put it together any frontier 2000 and under will Do .
My favorite feature is the style of the 1999 Datsun it looks newer than a 1999
The inprovement will be to me is that . They didn't make to many parts for off road .i will like to find more things for it . I have to mix and match with other Frontiers . Of later models
I purchased this truck for over-the- road traveling. It has been a terrific truck for me. I have used it for some limited hauling. I am not a small guy. It is very comfortable for me. I would have liked 4 doors, and the cruise control "on" button is in a strange place. That is the only thing that has been an issue for me. The comfort, reliability, and the build of this truck is second to none. The styling is far superior to any of the competition. My truck looks more beefy, with more design, while the others look more boxy and cheap. I would recommend this truck to anyone. Who ever gets this truck next, even with 150000 miles will get a very nice looking truck, and one that is mechanically so
I purchased my truck new in 1999. I only have about 65,000 miles on it. I have not had a single problem with it in all these years. The air conditioner is just as cold today as it was the day I drove it off the lot. The car has not been back to the dealership since I bought it. I do change the oil/filter about every 5,000 miles. It still runs like a sewing machine. Gas mileage is about 19 in town and 24 on the highway (65 mph). Did have to replace factory radio.
Fun to drive. Easy to maneuver. Handles well. Good visibility. Bed sides need holes for stakes/pipes (ladder rack).
Jump seats in back are too flimsy. Loose change falls into the front seat tracks and jams seat slide. The seat must be removed to remove coins.
