$7200 for a new radiator and transmission at 84,000 miles. This is one of 3 vehicles that have had this problem in the Laramie Wyoming area. No one at local or national level can explain why it happened. Local and National Customer service agree that I did nothing wrong to the vehicle, but national Customer Service refuses to help because I did not get all of my service done at an authorized dealership. If you choose to buy a Nissan, make sure you get extended warranty and do all service at dealership, regardless of what they tell you.

Great Truck with 1 Major Flaw

This truck is the perfect size, power, fuel economy...everything. It has the feel of a much bigger vehicle, something my Colorado lacked. But I am having a terrible problem with the paint coming off the bed at the very front behind the cab. The dealer made an effort to correct the problem after 6 months. It was repainted and chip gaurd was applied. Now after a little more than a year from when it was new, the paint is coming off in chunks, exposing bare metal and rust! I am cuurently fighting with Nissan as they consider this normal wear and tear.(Until I turn in the lease I suspect.)

I am a new owner so my opinion may not matter much. I traded my F-150 and this Frontier is fantastic. 07 LE LB CC V-6 4X4. Power to spare, very comfortable. Easy to look at and very fuctional. It feels like your driving something very substantial. So far the only thing that needs to be improved is the turning radious, you have to compensate for this shortcoming, U-turns are risky on busy streets until you know for sure the space required to turn.

I bought this truck back in 08 living in Maine and having friends who all have big trucks I took a chance. Boy am I glad I did, I love getting this truck off road full of buddies (all of which have big trucks) and they say "wow I cant believe this truck just did that". Every chanllenge I have thrown at it this truck has eaten it up and spit it out. It's awesome in the snow to, its actually fun passing everyone in their Chevy's Ford's and Dodge's at 50 mph in a foot of snow. I put a aftermarket exhaust on it and the Nismo cold air intake and noticed a huge diffrence, although it can be very loud at higher rpm. If you dont like that sort of thing I wouldnt recommend it but if you want lots more power for relatively cheap it's worht it. All around awesome truck and I feel ill be driving it for a long time.

Best Midsize for the $$$$ going, Toy 3k more same equipt.! V6 feels like a small V8, Frontier gives alot for decent price. Toy/Tacoma living off the rep, Frontier right there with Toy & you save a bunch. I shopped & researched for year before I bought in April of 06. Can't beat Frontier for Value bottom line.

Gas mileage fair, but could be better. Turning radius not Great, but OK Center console compartment could be about 2-3 inches to the front and same higher. After oil change, dipstick shows oil level halfway between the two holes which misleads you to think oil is half qt low. Dealer says this is normal. Otherwise I love this truck.

I previously had a 95 Tacoma and went to by another. However, the price of the Tacoma was almost $6k more than the Frontier and I didn't see all that much difference between the 2 vehicles. The Frontier is a little larger and the bed can carry more. It has an automatic transmission and plenty of power. Mine has 100k miles on it and other than regular scheduled services I have had no problems whatsoever.

I hate this truck!

It sounds like there are elves making popcorn under the truck. Dealer says it's normal so I test drive another. Nope, not normal. Dealer now says it's "unique" every truck is different. Has it's own personality. The truck is only a few months old and now my breaks are sqeeking. This is my 7th Nissan, 3rd Nissan truck. I guess it's safe to say it's my last Nissan. Never owned a Toyota. I'm going to get a Tacoma next and see what all the fuss is about. I'm really dissapointed in Nissan. Some other things I hate about this truck. 18 MPG? Try 13.86. It's hard to turn and park. Mine is sluggish and noisey. Value?? I paid 25K for the SE CC with some extra options. What a rip off! One thing I like about the truck and all Nissans is the styling. I love the way they look.

I've owned my 2007 Frontier Nismo King Cab for a couple of months now. I average 2000 miles a month so the truck sees a lot of action. For my money this truck has been absolutely perfect. I needed something to drive back and forth to work and to use for local deliveries as part of my job. The cab is quiet even at freeway speeds and the ride is comfortable if a little bouncy - but that is typical for trucks of any kind. Power and performance have been top notch - plenty sprightly even between 60 and 80 for freeway passing. On top of it all I'm still averaging 21mpg which is just a couple ticks lower than my wife's 2014 Rogue with a 4 cylinder engine with a CVT - she averages 23.5 in mixed driving. Utility has been everything I've needed and more. Plenty of space inside the extended cab to hold electronic or delicate cargo, laptop, bags, books, etc. The large bed makes it easy to haul longer items as needed and the addition of the Utilitrack system for additional tie-downs has been fantastic. The only detraction I've had is in the interior design. LOADS of plastic. The seats are very comfy and everything the driver needs is well within reach but grey plastic completely fills the cabin without even a little 'accent' trim of any kind. Not a big deal and nothing that affects the usability of the vehicle, but something I thought stood out. The only other interior issue I noted was something I saw on every other used Frontier I test drove - the cloth on the drivers seat would wear right along the bolster facing the door. Because of the hike up into the seat or down out of the truck this is to be expected and is an easy $100 fix at any decent automotive upholstery shop. I covered the seat bottom and side bolsters with leather on both seats for a bit of a custom look. Cost me $300. Well worth it and the leather will wear much better than the cloth ever would. This is my 6th Nissan in 20 years and the 2nd with Nissan's legendary V6 (the other being a Infiniti G35 with 90k miles on it). I have found that as long as you follow the recommended service guidelines (oil changes/fluid changes) and keep an eye out for anything unusual (fluid leaks under vehicle) these will power on for decades.
