1996 Nissan Truck XE 2dr Regular Cab SB


This truck is essentially bullet proof.
The engine will go for 200k plus miles
with proper care (oil change and timing
chain every 90,000 miles should cover
it). What it lacks in horse power it
makes up for in torque. The auto trany
is smooth shifting. It Handles well and
is stable, even better with a few
upgrades. Bottom line: I had one recall
performed and zero unexpected
mechanical problems in six years of
ownership. I couldn't ask for a more
dependable vehicle.

Best Features

Simplicity, I can fix it myself on the rare occassion that something should go wrong. High resale value and low low low cost of ownership. Fit and finish quality is oustanding accept for one rattle on the firewall.

Worst Features

GAS MILEAGE, maybe the fronteer is better on gas, but I doubt it. Quiet the squeeks and pops in the suspension, front and rear. The sliding rear window rattles on the highway sometimes.
