Little truck, lotta truck !
By john d on


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


I use the truck primarily to tow a 3000 lb camper. The 3.3 L engine in the 2002 was rated at only 170 hp but this little truck seems to use all of them as it tows the camper plus another 500 lbs of camping gear as though it is not there. That is both with power and mileage. The camper and gear doubles the weight of the truck alone with no more than a 15-20 % increase in fuel consumption. For power I'm comparing it to my old Ford full-size with a 351 V-8. Never any maintenance in nearly 8 years of use other than regular preventative maintenance. Cannot recommend this little truck too much!!

Best Features

Acts like a truck and a sedan too with the extra passenger seating. Never needs repair as long as you keep it maintained.

Worst Features

A few more inches of legroom in the back might allow the backseat passengers some comfort if traveling more than a few hundred miles.
