Bought 09 crew cab used in March of 2010 as a third vehicle. Primarily used for trips/weekends. Have hauled camping gear, mulch, firewood, yard waste w/o issues. Has also been used on several 1000 mile plus trips. Fuel economy is acceptable, ride is somewhat harsh, performance and styling are top notch, Only issue has been two cracked valve stems, one repaired under warranty, the other repaired at a cost of $100 by local mechanic.

Traded in a full size Chevy in order to get Cash for Clunkers. But Frontier has proven itself time and again. Have hauled just about anything and everthing - from yard dirt to furniture. Great style - no complaints. The Suzuki is the same truck with a few more features at the same price - but no dealers within 100 miles.

We've been looking for a good used truck for a while so when I came upon a 2009 Nissan Frontier at Tom Sparks Auto in DeKalb I thought I'd take a look. In spite of rain trying to deter us, we looked at this truck and other suv's on the lot. This was definitely the best one at a good price. Love the truck! It's a king crew with the long bed with a tonneau cover and it's in excellent condition! Runs great and so far we're enjoying it. Looking forward to being able to haul around lots of stuff (we all have stuff) and not having to worry about getting the bed dirty or not having enough capacity. AC is awesome. Extras included a hitch and lined bed. Would recommend this vehicle!

I live in Arizona and have had two Frontiers, both with the v6 engine. Also have had Tacoma, Silverado and the GMC Sierra. All vehicles where very good i must say. Diffinitely like the Frontier because its a little smaller versis full size trucks, and the v6 is terrific. Mileage is about 22 mpg

Cloth seats need to be addressed. Not many mile, not hard on seats but they are looking worn. Armrest to short. Has a place on each side in the back that look like a hanging bar could be used but the set up doesn't match anything I could find. Positive side, great looking vehicle inside and out, handles great, I have the four cylinder and it has great power for a four. Rated at 25 miles a gallon on the road that's what it gets. No more or any less. I think it stands out much better than it's competitors but the seat issue really needs to be fixed.

I bought my truck used, 76,000 miles. It had alot of repairs done prior. Whole rear axle, clutch kit, battery had been done 4 times. Trailer wiring had been replaced, it has had work done. Mine is a SE, 4.0L V6, 6 Speed manual, 2 wheel drive, crew cab, 5' bed. Radios plain not very loud, 2 12v outlets, plenty of storage, heated rear window, tinted windows throughout. Only issues I have, radio could be better but for a base package. It's not to bad Cargo lamp you can NOT turn off manually. Anytime doors are open it's on, anytime you hit unlock it's on. Rattling heat shield on passenger side

I bought a '09 new. Loved it so much I just bought a new 2017. My 17 yoa daughter got the '09. It is safe, dependable, and easy to drive. I trust this vehicle to keep my most precious gift safe. I like the styling of both trucks. Only slight changes over the years. Handles great even with a heavy load of concrete or garden dirt. Good gas mileage. Roomy. Easily fits 4 adults in comfort.
