2004 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab XE Rwd SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The truck is the hardest working small truck on the market. The interior is laid out so that everything is in reach of your fingers. It's 4-cylinder motor is powerful enough to pull anything you want, except a house, a 30 ft boat, a travel trailer, or a horse trailer. If you needed to pull those things, you should have gotten the Titan. I work at a grocery store. I use my truck to pull trailers full of buggies, pallets of product, or anything we need to. One of my customers has a 97 Nissan pickup. He hauls about 200 cases of cold drinks in it, and it hasn't missed a beat. He's got 270,000 miles on that truck.


Best Features

Air conditioning, my last truck didn't have one.


Worst Features

All the improvement I think they could have made to it, they did in the 2005 model

2004 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab XE-V6 Rwd LB (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

The 2004 Nissan Frontier may not be a handsome truck but it does the job and at the right price. I would have preferred it to have a larger engine and more leg room in the rear, however I knew what I was buying so if I want to gripe about something it should be my thin wallet. This truck's best feature is its functional long bed.


Best Features

The long bed.


Worst Features

This truck has too much plastic, from the frontend to the dash! The tachometer is hard to read when the sun is in front and sunglasses are worn.

2004 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab XE Rwd SB (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Allright, so I've put 79,000 miles on my
truck in less then three years.
My
driving includes a little of everything,
city, highway, even some off road.
But
to be honest it's handled it pretty
well. Recently though I did start having
some issues,
1st: the taigate handle started to break
and mad useing it very diffucult, but it
was a easy $50 fix
2nd: Drivers side window knob broke, ****
happens...
BIG PROBLEMS-
4th: Throw-out bearing has worn, new
clutch- $500+
5th: Service engine litgh came on- O2
sensors need to be replaced first,
possible the cat convertor.
Still in the end I've treated this truck
poorly so in the end these problems
could be expected.


Best Features

VALUE!!! Had I bought the S10 or Ranger I'm sure I would have had more problems, and would have paid more for them.

2004 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab Standard Rwd SB (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This truck has no power, and the gas
mileage is terrible. There is not much
room at all inside. The hauling
capacity is mnot that bad for a small
truck, but if I have to haul alot of
weight up a small incline I am in
trouble.


Best Features

There is nothing that I like about this vehicle.


Worst Features

Make this vehicle with a little more power, and do something to improve the gas mileage.
