Mixed bag but great bang for your buck.

I have had my Nissan truck for a year and a half and it has 43500 miles on it. I commute 48 miles each way to work. The gas mileage is on average about 16MPG. I purchased this truck for a couple of reasons. After a bunch of negotiation, I got the price down to $27,300 which is about as low as it gets for a nicely loaded 4x4 truck. You probably could do better due to every other manufacturer that makes one having an updated small truck. The interior craftsmanship is poor. The glove box/door panels are susceptible to scratching and the center console latch broke very early on. I had the same issue with my wife's Nissan Quest. The dash rattles. The rear doors don't close well. The seats are comfy (I'm 6'04" - 240 lbs), seat warmers are nice and the web material is nice but the back seat is way too small for long trips with even small-medium sized passengers. I have three kids and I shuttle them to and from school so it works out. Longer trips, they are complaining. The storage under the rear seat is nice. I just got back from vacation and found a puddle of rain water inside the truck. The antenna for the XM radio has come loose and water leaked into the truck from the roof. Luckily, no headliner damage. The dealer wouldn't fix it despite being 18 months old because of the mileage and neither will Nissan. (Nissan has poor customer service.) Oddly, it doesn't have an oil change meter. I use the second trip odometer. The truck runs wells, has good power. For a rear wheel drive truck, it handles well. The ABS works great (I had some evasive driving recently and was impressed.) I have the rails in the truck bed and they are a nice option. For what I paid for it, it works well. When I added gasoline and maintenance estimates, it was by far cheaper than the Colorado or the Toyota.

Purchased my first new vehicle, Nissan Frontier SV 4x4 Crew Cab. So far I have had 3 problems, Nissan has only covered one... 1. No hole drilled for air conditioner drain. Water leaked all over the interior and blew out of every vent. Nissan "fixed" this. 2. The "paint" on the rear wheel wells is literally falling off after 5,000 miles. After several frustrating attempts Nissan refuses to fix this. Edmunds does not allow pictures but if you do some searching you should find them. 3. The rear sonar now no longer works @ 8,000 miles. Nissan has basically told me "No" several times to the paint, claiming its environmental. I live on a normal street, happened at 5000 miles.

Great Truck as long as you don't have problems...

I had a 2008 Frontier SV Crew-Cab 4X4 4.0L 6cyl 5A truck, loved it. Once I sold it, bought this one: 2015 SV CC 4X4 4.0L 6cyl 5A with Value Package, no Nav. Great truck, except for the bluetooth. It always defaults to automatically replying to text messages (Nissan Consumer Affairs and the dealership both acknowledge that this is a defect), but Consumer Affairs will not provide any support/update/fix, other than "We are aware." Test out your phone's connection before you sign on the dotted line. Like I said, love the truck, except for the faulty software programming and the significant lack of support from Nissan.
