2002 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab XE-V6 4WD LB (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Has the gas mileage of a V8. 3.3L to
small. I had to buy a high performance
air filter and exhaust to help with
the "get up". I liked the compact
style, because I'm able to get in
tighter more remote spots, than the
bigger trucks. Even though the rear
seating is cramped, my buddies and I
dealt with it just fine, during the
hunting seasons.
Climbs up(with stock tires)with no
problems, and some pretty steep
inclines. I had to have my steering
stoppers regreased, because they were
squeaking/creeking on sharp U-turns
w/bumps. Brakes started to make a high
pitch squeak noise, when going 20-30
mph. Brake pads were fine, the discs
needed to be resurfaced.


Best Features

300w fosgate stereo, and 6 cd changer. The longbed is a nice feature that other compact crews and some full crews don't have.


Worst Features

4.0 V6 engine. Open it up, pleeaase! raise suspension just a tad. Improve on gas mileage. Increase rear seating just a smidge.

2002 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab SVE-V6 4WD LB (3.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

I love my truck and wanted to buy a
Nissan for the dependability. I've
owned a Nissan Hardbody in the past and
there was no stopping this truck. So
ofcourse I wanted the Frontier. So far
the sunroof leaked really bad. One of
my speakers had to be replaced. A
radiator hose leaked. As if all this
wasn't bad enough, the paint is peeling
off and Nissan says it's because of
rocks. They are absoutly wrong. My
service consultant laughs everytime I
go in for service. He says I need to
trade it.


Best Features

I love the power of the super charger. It's great. Except for the fuel bill.


Worst Features

A little more head room and leg room in the back.

2002 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab SE-V6 2WD LB (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

All around great truck. The long bed
actually makes the truck look better
than with the chopped look of the
short bed.


Best Features

4 doors makes entry easier for passengers getting into the back.


Worst Features

Gas milage definitely needs improving. Turning radius could be greatly improved. Sometimes difficult to get into and out of parking spots because the truck doesn't cut that well.

Review

Get one loaded with all the features,
you won't be dissapointed. I owned a Jeep
Cherokee before this - what a pile of crap that
was! The Nissan Super Charged Crew Cab
Long Box is awesome! I added only the Nissan
Bugshield (looks great) and a trailer hitch. I
also tossed the cheap plastic bedliner and got
Line-X spray-in bedliner instead. It's alot
better & quiet! On top of the bed is a
Jackrabbit retractable cover - it goes great
with the Nissan rails! Maybe later I'll addbigger
tires. A great truck - you'll love it.


Best Features

Kickin' 300 watt Rockford 6 disc in-dash CD changer with 8 speakers and a sub - totally rocks! The leather is super comfortable and soft, too.


Worst Features

I'd only want a totally retractable moonroof like in the Maxima instead of the flip-up sunroof. It's almost perfect otherwise.

2002 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab Standard 2WD SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Great little work truck, the 5-speed
gets good gas mileage and is fun to
drive...incidently the squeek that is
heard when turning is the rubber stops,
you will notice that this only happens
when the wheels are turned all the way
in either direction, like when making a
U-turn.


Best Features

Interior gauges, i like the layout, also a good looking truck on the outside


Worst Features

3rd brake light on rear of cab leaked and had to be replaced, CD player broke at 22,000 miles, dealer is replacing, also had a broken control arm on the right side that the dealer repaired
