With seating for four or five depending on the cab style, the Frontier competes with the Toyota Tacoma and Honda Ridgeline.

Good except for crank cam sensors

Good value all things considered, replaced sensors at 50000. Transmission shifted hard and eventually truck would die while driving. Code indicated bad crank cam sensors. Allegedly a common problem. Replaced and truck has been fine. Surprised no recalls or TSB on these engines.

5.0

Does exactly what you need it to do

This truck will do what you need it to do. I bought it summer of 2019 for a business. That business is no longer in existence. I have no more use for this truck. It was a reliable truck. This truck will do what you need it to do.

5.0
