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


Overall a cheap truck, both good and bad. Engine torque performance at start up and pulling grades was poor, especially with a load. Number 2 plug wire was against a metal bracket and shorting out intermitently for first 5000 miles, once repositioned, performance became marginal. Traction has been very poor when unloaded, until it resulted in a crash into a road bank at 15 mph and $5K of damage. Have now replaced the original 225/70 tires with 205/70 tires. So far that change has proven to be useful, wet and dry traction seems to have improved and the torque/gearing now is acceptable. The speedo/odometer, of course, is off now, as nissan offers no adjustment.

Best Features

Cheap and new, good quality.

Worst Features

Nissan needs to address the torque/gearing/traction issues.I would expect more attention to be paid to these issues.
