2004 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab XE-V6 4WD SB (3.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I have had this truck for a year and a half. I looked at the other midsized trucks and could not find a better deal. bought for 19k compaired to 26 or 27 for the others. I have driven in all conditions such as 4 feet of snow, dry roads, and some light off road. Never had a problem with the truck getting me where I want to go. I would buy again if I had the chance.


Best Features

Price. The biggest bang for the buck.


Worst Features

The only issue that I have is the squeaks in the suspension. It has no bearing on the handling just agravating.

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


Review

This is my 5th Nissan and my 2nd Pick up. This build quality is very tight, no squeaks. The gearing is nice for cruising and commuting. A very versatile truck for a dad with a 7 year old boy, an active wife, and 2 big dogs that all love to camp and explore the great state of Texas.


Best Features

I love everything about the truck. There isn't one particular thing that stand out. Well, maybe it's presence - it looks good.


Worst Features

The Short Bed should come with a receiving hitch.

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


Review

This small truck was exactly what I needed for a new sales job, inexpensive, small, some carring ability and good gas milage. I have been back to the dealer twice to fix a noise in rear when braking, problem still exists. Fun and semi peppy to drive, sporty feel. It should be faster for a 2400cc, 16 valve engine, Gas mileage was 22, I thought it should be better for a 4 cylinder mini truck, K&N air filter and Flowmaster exaust improved it by 10%.


Best Features

Handling, fun to drive, Air and stereo work good. Like the looks.


Worst Features

Nissan engineers could have improved engine performance and MPG with a little efort.

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


Review

Other than the non repairable alignment issues. And the bad welds on the frame it hasn't been that bad of a truck...


Best Features

the 5 speed manual looks mean stock sound sytem not too bad


Worst Features

nissan needs to pay better attention to frame quality, the welds holding the leaf spring perches are separating, the crossmember for the torsion bars is not mounted on center so its pushing the drivers side front wheel out causing it to pull. im sure this is just my truck though...

Review

Overall this has been an excellent truck. My primary use is to carry clients to show real estate in the mountains of North Carolina. 4 wheel drive is a necessity in the winter and to get in and out of undeveloped areas. Has good visibility and is comfortable. Reliability has been excellent.


Best Features

Exterior styling is very cool, OEM cd player has never missed a beat. Stock ground clearance is great as is shift on the fly 4 WD high range. Guages are easy to read and controls are in easy reach.


Worst Features

Cruise control won't hold an even speed. On flat highways it forces the tranny out of O/drive to hold a steady speed. Back seat needs another inch or two of space. OEM Goodrich Long Trail T/A tires are absolutely spooky to drive in the rain. Power steering could use more boost.
