2001 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab XE-V6 4WD (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

It’s been reliable & very utilitarian.
The bed extender works well. Front seat
comfort is good,back seat is OK. The
handling is numb and the fuel economy
is poor but it’s a four wheel drive
truck. What is a problem is the paint
and the carpets. The Aluminum colored
bumper paint is falling off on the
edges and on the roof rack. These are
areas where its had little contact with
anything. Also the carpet is
discoloring. The trucks not been
abused. I'm going to take it to Nissan
and see what they say but I don't have
high hopes. On my previous Nissan truck
there were similar problems and they
walked away from them. I swore I
wouldn't buy another but I did.


Best Features

It's utilitarian.


Worst Features

Paint and interior quality.

2001 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab XE 2WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

paid 7900 - 43k miles, great
condition. it's our third vehicle
behind a passat (speed) and explorer
(road trips.

drives great for a truck - i can take
turns hard and it's got enough
acceleration to pass the idiots yapping
on their cell phones. this is a strong
4 cyl engine, and i got 26 mpg on the
first tank.

i'm the meanest person i know - kicked
a lot of tires and yelled at a lot of
sales people. this truck had the best
combo of comfort, price, and
reliability i could find. also, the
dealer was quite reasonable to deal
with - i would recommend them

Best Features

great stereo and cup holders, quiet ride and smooth for a pickup. - i don't feel at all like i'm roughing it.


Worst Features

locking gas cap, tilt steering wheel.

2001 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab XE 2WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This vehicle appears to be sold for its
looks; as a truck, it is next to
worthless, especially given the that is
equipped with a fake spare tire.


Best Features

outward appearance


Worst Features

equip it it with a real spare tire. don't skimp on simple things- body integrity has no integrity. i've replaced things like keys & locks and tailgate latches more than once.

2001 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab SC-V6 2WD (3.3L 6cyl S/C 5M)


Review

I have driven many different trucks in
my time, but Frontier has been the
most enjoyable. It can certinaly turn
heads and makes to proud to drive it.
Gas mileage sucks, but I guess there
is a draw back on everything. I'll pay
for it.


Best Features

I really can't say any one thing is my favorite as there is nothing I don't like about it. Good looks, plenty of power and fun to drive.


Worst Features

Gas Mileage

2001 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab SE-V6 4WD (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I have owned my Nissan Frontier SE 4WD
now for 7 months and I have almost no
complaints. It performed well for me
in the summer heat of NC and now is
doing great in the winter snow of NH.
I never worried about getting to work.
In 4WD it is a bit difficult to make
sharp turns (i.e. parking lot) but I
guess its standard with a 4WD. Its a
bit difficult to get in and out of the
truck. The step rail is more for
decoration. I was thinking of getting
a car but I like the versatility of a
truck with 4 doors. I guess its the
truck for the undecided.


Best Features

4WD versitility style 6 disc CD changer great v6 engine


Worst Features

Either lower the step rail so its easier to get in and out of the truck (sacrificing ground clearance) or take them off altogether.
