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


Review

I just bought my Frontier used, and so
far I have been very happy with it.
Only problems have been a few rattles
that I believe are fixable, poor gas
mileage, and my motorcycle (Ducati
Monster) will not fit in the bed with
the tail gate closed(misses it by a few
inches). The only other problem is my
wife steals my truck all the time.


Best Features

Long bed, four doors absolutely rock, good looks.


Worst Features

Gas mileage! The cruise control seems a little jerky going up and down hills, but this seems to be a common problem on modern electronic cruise controls.

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


Review

This is my 3rd Frontier. I had a 2000
Frontier that I had bought NEW and had
a ton of problems with it. These
trucks need to be made in Japan where
the assembly process is much better!
Anyway, I gave Nissan another chance
when I bought a loaded up 2001 Frontier
Crew Cab 4x4... I only had it for 3
months and it seemed ok?! Here I am in
another Frontier, and it has problems
galore. Radio went out already, raw
gas smell under the truck that
is 'undiagnosable' and catalytic
converter smells every few days. On
top of that, now I have some electrical
issues that who knows what it'll cost.
I'm trading it and will absolutely
NEVER buy a Nissan truck again.


Best Features

exterior look and more options for less money but as I see now, what good is that if you have problems?!


Worst Features

better seat material, better radio, better assembly process... take it back to Japan

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


Review

Overall, I've been very happy with my
truck. It rides and drives like a
truck, a little slow to start, but
passes without having to downshift. I
have noticed that the ABS light has
been on faintly since I got the truck,
although dealer says it is fine - I've
been told "all of them are like that".
Only other problem was the rear window
started leaking during heavy rains due
to a poor seal around the brake light
on the cab.


Best Features

comfort, style


Worst Features

Steering wheel hides part of right side of instrument panel. Speakers in rear of truck as standard equip.

Review

Hard riding truck. Lots of squeaks and
rattles that the dealer has been unable
to eliminate.Truck is underpowered and
yields poor fuel economy.Cheap
interior, especially carpeting and
upholstery.

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


Review

I read the reviews. I did my
research. I found one on the
internet. Without even a test drive,
I bought it and the dealership drove
it down to me (4hrs one way). If you
want a small truck that has the OMMPH,
here ya go. If you expect to get
20+MPG.. don't buy this truck. It is
a PERFORMACE vehicle. Fun to drive
and no major issues so far.


Best Features

Go, go, go. The Supercharger winds up and away you go. Do a lil 4x4 with it and watch the mud fly.


Worst Features

The bed light and mid brake light had water in it and failed. Took to dealer, instant replacement @ no cost. No other problems.
