Love the 'Gizmo
By Johnboy from NY on


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


I've had the Crew Cab Nismo (a.k.a. Gizmo) for 5 months now. It's one of the most fun to drive trucks that I've ever had. I was a little worried about the Nismo off-road package while on the road, but the stiffer suspension is fine in all but the roughest pot hole highways, where your back-end will try to beat out the front end at speed. The only imperfections that I've had is a rattle in the dash when its cold ( I haven't dropped it off for repairs until it stays cold so they can hear it), and the rubber stops on the tailgate fall off easy. I am RTV'ing them on when the replacements get here. Overall, I love the truck. I get an average of 16.5 mpg in town and 20 on long highway trips.

Best Features

Sunroof (listen to this Toyota....), The Rockford Fosgate CD player is awesome!!!

Worst Features

How about a "decreased power" button that decreases the engine power a tad, for a little better gas mileage? You don't always need all the 265 horses under the hood.....
