2002 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab SC-V6 4WD SB (3.3L 6cyl S/C 5M)


Review

Looked only at several used Tacomas
until we stumbled on this bright red
truck. During the test drive we were
both surprised at the comfort of the
ride - far less bouncy than the Tacoma -
much quieter - and the seats are
superb - The engine has plenty of power
both at the low end and at highway
speeds. The high glass line adds to
openess and the tuck is noticeably
wider inside than the Tacoma. This
truck had 35K miles on it and the
interior looked new. Gas mileage after
1000 miles has averaged 15.7 - mostly
work commute so far but would expect 18
or so on highway - Have been using mid
level octane and seems fine - nice
truck!


Best Features

Rugged look, Wheels, Engine, suspension and ride, quiet roomy interior, build quality, lots of 12 volt accessory outlets at handy locations.


Worst Features

Stock radio/CD could use a better speaker but not bad - easy to upgrade - would also like a maintenance free battery vs the add water type that is stock

Review

After 2-years and 35K, I've generally
had good luck with it, but I've also
had issues. Several parts of the
vehicle came loose; such as the
steering wheel, rear bumper, driver
window, lft rear window, center pillar
trim, and seat material. All somewhat
minor; except for the
clicking/grinding in the front
suspension...waiting for
something to fall apart. I've also had
probs with the cruise..still not
resolved. Getting approx. 16-21 mpg,for
cty-hwy,respectively depending on how
heavy my foot is. It is really fun to
drive and hasn't left me walking, so
I'm not totally disgusted w/Nissan yet.
BTW-My service visits have not been
good experiences.


Best Features

Exterior styling, utility of the long bed and smooth ride.


Worst Features

Improve gas mileage, increase seat height and improve interior materials (kinda cheap). Service techs lack knowledge of products they attempt to repair.

superior sound system stock.

A little more road sound deadening, better grade of tires off lot, seat material durability could be improved.

Review

I wanted a Murano but the "dealer"
wouldn't deal. This truck was on the
lot for over 6 months and was a deal.
The wife loved it so at 14k less than a
Murano, bought it. With 600 miles on
the odom, we took it out west on a 4800
mile trip w/cycle and stuff in back.
Under 65 averaged 18-20mpg. Over 65
lookout. Very comfortable on the two
800 mile days. Great on highway and had
a ball with the quasi offroad trips.
Lots of comments from many people. This
is our 6th Nissan(3 Maximas, 2
Altimas). 520,000 miles and no
complaints.


Best Features

The Blower


Worst Features

Put the Maxima engine in it!
