Good Truck, Super Reliable
By norcalboon on


2004 Nissan Frontier 2dr King Cab XE-V6 Desert Runner Rwd SB (3.3L 6cyl 4A)


Bought new in 2004 for 17700. 95K miles and no problems. Replaced OEM tires at 55K with same (BFG's) and battery died in 2008, replaced front brake pads around 60K. No other problems, just oil changes. 18-20MPG consistently. Wanted something I could keep for a few years with little to no issue and this has been great. Definitely a 'truck' ride, especially on bumpy roads and interior starting to feel small, but overall it's been a fantastic truck, never let me down.

Best Features

Ride height (Desert Runner is 2WD on 4WD chassis). Reliability.

Worst Features

Stereo is loud but could use more bass. Light back end fishtails pretty easy on wet pavement.
