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


This is my first Nissan vehicle. It is replacing a 2003 Dakota V8. In spite of a smaller engine than the old Dak, the Frontier is quicker, especially at highway speed, and manages 2-2.5 mpg better. Ride quality (noise,comfort) is on par. While the Nissan seats are significantly firmer, I find them more comfortable. In spite of cheaper pricing for both the 05 Dak and 05 Colorado that I also considered, the Fronty won out. Nissan just seemed to take an extra step in adding little touches here-and-there. The build quality just 'feels' better.

Best Features

Fit (no squeaks, good door close, etc.), comfortable ride, Slick looks, powerful engine, extras (storage nooks, bedliner, utilitrak, etc.)

Worst Features

Flimsy ac/heater knobs, excess hard plastic, standard cheap OEM speakers and radio, headrests somewhat light
