2005 Nissan Frontier 4dr King Cab Nismo 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Traded in my Nissan Armada (fell apart on me!) for a 4x4 Nismo CC with all options. The ride is excellent, the fun- factor is higher than any other truck test-drove (of course, I stayed away from the 45k+ "sport" trucks). Ground clearance is excellent for us 'newbie' off-roaders. VDC is excellent, will never get another vehicle without it.

Best Features

This 4.0 pushes a 4,600 lbs truck just as well, if not better than any competator's small V8. Factory bed liner/utili-track A++! The exterior is A+. Beautiful in Electric Blue! Transmission shifts silky-smooth. Body roll excellent for being a truck! Double-Decker glove box! Can't go wrong with that.

Worst Features

My main gripe is the interior. The colors are fine, but the abundance of plastic is a little annoying at times. The Tacoma might not have any less plastic, but it has some sort of style. Also,the skid plates are pretty thin.. not sure if they would hold up too well.
