2013 Nissan Frontier SV 4dr King Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


This replaced my 2000 4x2 Frontier (I got from a friend after he adopted 2 kids and needed a vehicle that could hold multiple car seats :-)
That truck ran great, good mileage, relatively low maintenance costs (except for the leaky fuel pump at 100k that cost $1100 to fix).

After 800 miles, performance is very good (I'm not used to this much power), gas mileage as expected (4x4 not a winner there), comfort is good, interior features are generally good.
Overall quite satisfied.

Best Features

Backup camera (including night/low-light performance) Factory-applied bedliner Hands-free phone sound quality iPod integration Comfortable Cupholders (one now holds dog's water dish when we're traveling together :-)

Worst Features

Daytime Running Lights! NO excuse for this deficiency in 2013. Add pause/stop control for iPad or CD playback Difficult to add selected phone numbers, it's all-or-nothing. Nissan should take advantage of the radio screen and controls to allow more customization features. Not really interested in Sirius, but would have liked HD Radio. Would have liked a diesel engine option.
