2006 Nissan Frontier Nismo 4dr King Cab 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I brought this truck to replace my '95 GMC KC Sonoma 4x4 V6 5sp. I had about 115k miles of pretty trouble free miles. The biggest annoyance was the drive train noise when rowing the gears. Their was a LOT of gear backlash. When I took it to the dealer they said it was NORMAL and I should dampen the noise with using the clutch more........yea right! The shifter looked like it came out of a school bus or something. Gas mileage was 18-19 in the city and about 21-22 highway which wasn't too bad. I was going to to replace the Sonoma with the new Colorado/Canyon until I heard that GM in all their (stupid) infinite wisdom decided to put an I5 instead of a V6 or I6. So I bought a Frontier.


Best Features

That World Class V6 engine with all that HP and Torque and equal or better MPG than my '95 Sonoma. Ya just got to love the 6speed transmission mated to this engine. Nissan boys knew what they were doing. The looks are really appealing! I've had many compliments with silver exterior and blue seats.


Worst Features

When you order the NISMO package the interior should compliment the exterior NISMO name. It doesn't. Nissan should offer an all black interior option with white instrument cluster or some other color scheme for the interior. Recalibrate the ECU to accept premium fuel if you so desire.

2006 Nissan Frontier XE 4dr King Cab SB (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is a good solid truck, I went with the 4cyl for gas mileage 18 city 20 highway. The truck does not have much power so go with the 6cly if you tow. The truck has 2 recall items both minor door latch, gas cap other than that no problems. I wanted a tacoma but this similar frontier was $2700 less.


Best Features

Price gas mileage and hopefully nissan dependability.


Worst Features

Nicer wheels.
