Can't have it all, I guess?
By jshoota on


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


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.
