last pickup I'll buy

After our current 1990 Nissan pickup went 240000 miles with only minor problems, we looked at the new Frontiers. They outclass the older models considerably. They handle like a car with creature comports that match. It's quiet and the doors close with a solid "click" the older model never had. The difficulty came in finding a 4wd model with a long bed. I was told by several dealers they weren't made anymore, but perserverence paid off and a 2014 model was found on this website. So far, we're happy with the purchase. It included the upgraded sound system and backup camera. Both a necessity. The interior could be improved with leather seats, otherwise, ergonomically, it 's a comfortable vehicle with more features than I found in any other brand of it's class for a similar price.

Got this Frontier SV with the extra value pkg. This is my 5th Frontier since '97. They keep getting better and better every time. The exterior metal is harder than the Toyota and Honda trucks. This is a great value for less than $31,000 list. Nissan dealers will work with you. Trucks from Toyota and Honda will cost you $5,000 more with the same equipment. Toyota is still pricing their trucks as if they were still paying the "Chicken Tax". That's why they are still trying to claim "higher resale value". The Frontier has a higher driver's seat position and a smoother ride. The 4.0 ltr V6 delivers excellent power and fuel economy.

I bought my 2014 Nissan Frontier new. 1 year later. Going down the freeway smelled the clutch hadn't used the clutch in five minutes. Transmission starts slipping and No gears. Not covered under any of the warranties the clutch flywheel pressure plate throw out bearing all replaced 1689.99 later get truck back. In less than 1000 miles I can already feel the clutch is wearing. Now I have a rattle heat shield or something. Fourth gear now grinds and we wont even talk about the dent on the passenger side door I got from the dealership during repairs. Now back in the shop to find out what the real problem is. Yesterday I saw another 2014 Frontier coasting into gas station. No transmission same story his had 27000 miles on it. Mine had 32000. Service director on test drive thanked me for knowing how to drive a clutch. 30 years of doing it I have it down.

Frontier King Cab SV 2.5L 4cyl automatic

I bought this truck new and have driven it about 4 thousand miles so far. No problems. No issues. Very satisfied with this truck. Fit and finish is outstanding especially for a vehicle in this price range. Interior is comfortable and all of the controls are very easy to use. Great visibility and a firm but not rough ride just like a truck should be. The 2.5L 4 cylinder engine works just fine for me since I am mostly commuting to work and doing light hauling. If you are hauling heavy loads or doing serious towing you will need to get the V6 engine. 5 speed automatic transmission shifts very smoothly. My driving is roughly 80% highway and 20% city. I am consitantly getting 23-24 MPG which is right in line with what the sticker says it should get. The SV package with the 4cyl engine is the best truck value I could find and I shopped all of the other brands too.

Nice truck, Looks good and lots of people ask about it. Mine has the 4.0 L V6 automatic. Gets up to speed real well. No problem with power. Room for 5 adults. Plenty of head room and well appointed. The folks at Nissan treated me like a human and the service was great so far. Only have 290 miles on it so far so I cant comment on the fuel mileage.Get back at you.

Terrific Nissan Truck made in America! Let's get the not so terrific out of the way... I drove a 4x4 version of what I purchased in a 4x2 for several days while my vehicle was being delivered. The typical ride of a tight 4x4 was appearant and the handle did not disappoint, yet. Then the 4x2 came into my day to day life that the critics had pointed out the handling is sluggeshness, became a major disappointment! That being said, the prowess of 260+ HP V6 and the rest of what makes a vehicle the complete pacakge make up for the engineers over-looking the stearing and handling aspects of the design. It's not easy to descriibe what a confident manner this truck exhibits my instincts to accelerate and get where I want to go! I went from a spunky front wheel drive with amazing power to weight ratio, into this terrific truck by Nissan America. So I realize I am getting use to longer wheel base and being in a rear wheel drive again. I use to drive a truck made by a company with 4 letters in the name. I'll let the stearing issue slide for now and just enjoy the truck I'm for the most part thrilled with!

Not quite 1000 miles yet but I just love this truck. Everything that I need. Got the SV crew cab, 4x4, 6 cyl, towing pkg, xm radio, running boards. Everything you could ask for. Getting 17 mpg around town (sometimes with a trailer behind), got 17.9 last tank with a little more expressway time. This thing is very responsive, roomy and comfortable. My partner has a Toyota 4 runner and this truck drives and rides just as nice. I will post an update when I roll over 250,000 miles. Keep smiling!

Have had this truck for about a year and a half now and have about 20K miles on it so I decided I would post a follow up review. Anyway, bought it brand new. I commute to work with it everyday and also use it for general purpose home owner type hauling. I use it to haul home improvement and landscape materials, furniture, etc. This little truck has been very dependable so far. No issues or returns to the dealership for repairs at all. No annoying squeaks or rattles. Just seems to be a very well built product all around. Actually got around fairly well in the snow last winter considering its only 4x2. The electronic traction control helps a lot. I like that the heater warms up pretty quick on a cold day. The 2.5L 4 cylinder isn't too exciting as far as performance goes but its dependable, quiet, and it gets the job done. I am generally driving 80% highway 20% city and have gotten as good as 25 mpg with it but normally get 23-24. Mileage drops to 21-22 during the really cold winter months. Overall just really satisfied with this little truck. The Frontier just seemed like a much better value compared to other new trucks I looked at. If I needed another truck I would buy another Frontier without hesitation. I just don't see how you can go wrong with a Frontier.
