Nissan doesn’t cover their own recalls. They Suck

Nissan is lousy with follow up & coverage of their own vehicles had 3 differ models. Armada, was bought brand new steering went out first week. 2005 frontier bought new engine sensor recall notice Dealer would not cover it & Nissan of America was no help. Transmission went out out 3k miles out of warranty. Later found out major recall on most frontiers transmission need to be overhauled. Nissan looks nice but they suck on dependability!!! A good example that “All that glitters is not gold”


Great Truck

Truck has been reliable and perfect for my needs. Gets the job done. Very reliable and trustworthy. Very Comfortable. Transmission is strong. Room for two kids in the back


very nice looking and well kept

So far this truck works for the needs we have. We are hoping to have it for a long time. The people at Peihls were very nice and made the deal very easy.


Excellent value glad I didn't pass it up

Although this vehicle doesnt have a following like some others in its class. Makes this a excellent deal, it affordable, reliable and has all the features and some added touches. I think Nissan should have been updating it with time but for the type of vehicle it holds it's own. There aren't many aftermarket extras for this vehicle, but I also couldn't find one in any salvage yards as well further letting me know that this vehicle last.


Everything perfectAmazing, underrated medium truck

Best truck I've owned. Great gas mileage(25 mpg), ride and capacity for small truck. Long bed. Four doors for x-cab are super convenient and useful.


My Nissan Frontier still kicking some xxx out ther

2005 nissan frontier xe ( manual Transmission with 215000 miles on it an counting... oil chage every 6000 miles full synthetic mobil one 5w30, front and rear bilstein suspension, I never had any issues with this truck. Recently I get hit on the back and Geico was given me total loss an a check of 3900$ for my truck, I said no way....... i jus keep it and paid from my pocket because I truly sure my truck worth more than that.


Now 14 years old, still smooth

Surprising service lifespan so far. At year 13, with 180K miles, seat covers showing wear, driveshaft bearings replaced with U joint, sensors in engine head replaced and intake system replaced. These all conspired to create engine overheating. Paint job starting to show aging and bad rust spot on right rear wheel well. Overall finish starting to show the relative low quality, in my opinion, of external paint job from factory. However, this is not garage kept and the water supply here for washing has high sodium content and we live on the coast. Parts to replace exterior are expensive from manufacturer. The power plant, however, still is a great match for the truck. Still smooth operation and a pleasure to drive, in my opinion. My wife hates it. I like it.


Nissan trucks r good trucks

Nissan trucks r 1 of the best rated trucks on the road. Toyota dodge chevy and ford. These r the top 5 on the road in order.


Nissan Frontier Nismo Offroad

Very good off-road. Not the most comfortale truck. Very handy. Mine has Power steering.. Good Truck. Don?t buy the one without power steering, too hard to turn..


Please buy another make

Please read the comments folks! Trans will cost you a lot of money and it will happen!! Trust me! Sorry Nissan switching to another brand,you should be ashamed to cost so many people who DID believe in your product to switch to a competitor
