Nice but....
By Idlejunk on


2001 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab SC-V6 4WD (3.3L 6cyl S/C 5M)


This truck is an average truck with good in-your-face, like it or leave it styling. The average comments come from the following: Bad Stuff: 1) Underpowered for towing / hauling (yes - even with the supercharged engine) 2) Sloppy transmission with poor ratio's for towing / hauling 3) Horrifing gas milage for a small truck! (14.5 MPG city - 14.5 MPG highway) 4) Exhaust Header that cracks about every 40K miles (has been covered under warranty) 5) Finicky about fuel - requires 93 octane to avoid knocking and supercharger cut-outs. 6) Steering Effort is High Good Stuff: 7) Off-Road Capabilities 8) Seats - very comfortable (leather) 9) Dash Layout - easy to navigate with gloves LOOKS!

Best Features

Seats, Looks, Off-Road Capability, Performance (without a payload/trailer), Design (interior and exterior)

Worst Features

Engine refinement, transmission refinement, Reliability of Engine and Fuel Systems --> quite a few little problems over the last 2 years. All covered under warrenty - but still a pain in the butt.
