Most Reliable Car I've Owned (I'm not kidding)

by from Austin, TX on July 10, 2008

I bought the vehicle five years ago when it had 68000 miles. Now it has 167000 and I haven't had any problems. So far I change the factory battery, oil changes, and spark plugs. That's it! Great truck...

Perfect little truck

by from Sedro-woolley, Wa. on May 8, 2014

I had a great time driving this truck. Also my buying experience at Dwayne Lanes North Cascade Ford from Shane Steward and the whole sales team made it very comfortable and exciting.

Best little truck I've ever owned.

I bought my 98 truck used in 2000 with 18,000 miles on it It now has 149,800 miles. It's a 5 speed 4wd, extra cab. I pulled it 4 wheels down behind a motor home for 40,000 miles with no problems. Only mechanical problem so far has been to replace the exhaust manifold/header at 47,923 miles and the alternator right at 149,000 miles. 3 Grandchildren have filled the bed with all needed supplies and driven across country to the College of their choice. I now use the truck as my ranch truck where the 4 wheel drive is handy and the trucks ability to haul a bed full of rock up and down hills easily. Wash and a little wax and it shows as new. Other then normal maintenance this truck is tough. My next truck will be a Nissan.

Nissan holds a great resale value. I have not had any major repairs done to my truck. Oil change, tune up , belts, tires etc... But I have 98,000 miles. My last nissan pickup had 225,000 miles on it when I traded it in, and I was still using it everyday. Looking forward to trying the full size truck, this was a little crowded/close between driver and passenger. Overall 2nd best truck I've ever owned 4 1/2 stars for me.

My Fabulous Frontier - 4 X 4 XE 4 cyl. model

My wife and I have owned this vehicle for about two years now, and we've been very impressed with it overall. It has run beautifully, has hauled some very heavy loads for us, has been VERY low maintenance, and has gotten much better gas mileage (up to 27 MPG highway) than the published numbers suggest. The only drawbacks we have found are the following: 1. The seats need to be readjusted every time someone gets into the jumpseats in the back. 2. The AC needed to be recharged, which is normal for any ten year old car. 3. With the larger tires, this truck does not corner well (which is to be expected considering it's a truck). 4. The thick front pillars of the cab area where the door frame meets the cab create significant blind spots. (Be sure nothing is behind them before pulling out)! Other than those few things, our truck has been a wonderful addition to our automotive family!
