A poor man's "Toyota" pick-up

1997 Nissan Truck 2dr Regular Cab SB


This is the only vehicle I have ever bought brand new and it was only because the dealership had a ton of "stripped not equipped" models that were being sold cheaply. By stripped, I mean there was no radio or even a rear bumper. However, while a bit under-powered this pickup worked well for a number of years and proved to be quite reliable, although it didn't seem to be of the same quality caliber as a comparably sized Toyota pick-up. The gas mileage and handling wasn't all that great either.

Best Features

Cheap mini pickup that got the job done. Few problems other than replacing spark plugs and a wiring harness. I hauled a ton of stuff over the years with that little red pickup.

Worst Features

Under-powered and the handling was pretty poor as it rode like a truck (which I suppose is good since it was a truck). Gas mileage wasn't very good either.
