2003 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab XE-V6 4WD SB (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

It was between the frontier and the
tacoma and when it came down to money,
power, and interior room there was no
comparison. The extended bed liner and
the 4wd drive makes it unstopable. It
has gotten me out of many sticky
situations. Test drive and you will
see too....


Best Features

Cd player, 4wd, extended bed, interior room, heats up quickly during winter months.


Worst Features

Could use a little more HP and better gas mileage.

2003 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab XE-V6 Rwd SB (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is my third Nissan pickup in the
last 18 years. So far it is starting
out like the other two, no problems. I
still own my 93 and plan to give it to
my son when he turns 16. What can I
say? I wouldn't have bought three in a
row if they weren't a great little
truck. I have nothing against Toyota,
except that they cost about $2k more
when compared to Nissan.


Best Features

Driving height, drivablity, mechanically dependable and style. I love to drive my truck, sometimes I take the long way home. My 93 never gave me any problems or left me stranded. My 03 seems to be of the same quality, I will probably drive it for another 10 years?


Worst Features

Gas millage! Another 3 to 5 miles per gallon would be nice? But my millage could be affected by my "putting my foot into it" mentality it have?

2003 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab SVE-V6 4WD LB (3.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

I really like the ride and the power,
but the gas milage sucks. I would not
recommend. Also the bed is not as big
as it looks. Most full sized trucks
get better fuel milage.


Best Features

The Power it has. I pull a 1 ton boat and it handles it ok.


Worst Features

Improve on fuel milage. Also could make the bed deeper.

2003 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab XE-V6 4WD LB (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

For the most, this vehicle is a good
handling truck but very high on gas
consuming. THe air conditioner and heat
exchanger are very poor and the
interior space is very limited,
specially in the back seat.


Best Features

The truck handles very well in snow and dry road.


Worst Features

Gasoline expense must be improved. The tank is very small compare to the milage per gallon. Next time, I will consider leasing my next truck based on gas consumption and unless improved I will be force to go to others.

2003 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab SE-V6 4WD LB w/Leather (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased this truck in June 2003. I
have put almost 9000 miles on it since
then. I have had no problems at all.
The gas mileage was poor to start, but
a K&N filter changed that. (17-21)(15-
17 before)HWY. The Rockford Fosgate
system isn't all what it's cracked up
to be. The factory stereo in my 02
Trailblazer sounds better. Overall I am
pleased with the performance and ride.


Best Features

The in-dash 6 disc changer, 16 inch wheels and long bed. Steering wheel mounted audio controls!


Worst Features

More horsepower I've got an 03 and even though it's got 10 more horses than last year, it still isn't enough! More rear seat leg room and more fron seat hip room. I 6'1" 185 and it feels a little tight. Shift on the fly Four wheel drive.
