A dissatisfied customer

The interior reminds me of the old American Motors cars. Cheap plastic interior door covers. The console is big but has little room to put your items. The bed liner is crappy white painted black. It is too soft and shows scuffs and scrapes. I don’t plan on buying another Frontier.

Older model: great, new model: blah.

A former friend wrecked my 2014 Frontier, I bought a 2022 Frontier to replace it, I miss my 2014 so badly. I'm not a fan of the electronics, the start button, the ride, the overall feal of the 22. I am searching high and low to find me an older one again.

Overall a nice truck.

Overall I am pleased. Get 24mpg. Comfortable interior but dated. One major criticism by "experts" was the lack of more modern safety features and electronics. Things that cost money to repair. Simpler is better. Good power and ride. A little stiff. Some body lean / roll in the corners, however the CG is higher because of good ground clearance. Lots of interior storage. Nice exterior look. Only had for 1 month so long term reliabllity is unknown.

Old school with a new heart.

10,000 miles in six months, half pulling a 3500lb. popup camper with zero problems. I bought this truck to tow and it does that with zeal. The torque range and nine speed transmission make pulling a trailer just a Sunday drive.

Nice Truck.

As one of the owners has shared, all the sudden the truck just stops and hardly moves again even with 4lo, the car dealer said it just has to replace the clutch system all cover with the guaranty, there is no evidence what could cause the failure as those trucks ussualy the clutch system failed after 25k miles, 8K miles so far for my truck.

Best midsize no-nonsense truck

Powerful V6 that is meant for a truck, excellent towing, lots of headroom and I don't knock myself silly entering like on the Tacoma. It has a real truck feel.

Intermittent hesitation

The Frontier will sometimes stop. The gas is applied but the vehicle will just stop moving, the engine does not rev up. We where almost hit when the truck stop moving in a intersection even putting the gas pedal to the floor had no effect. After about 10 seconds the truck continued as normal (gas tank full). Intermittently the truck hesitates whilst driving then proceeds as if nothing happened. The dealer finds no computer error codes. Contacted Nissan North America for help. 1000 miles on the new truck. Will consider Lemon Law if it comes to that.

Most reliable car I’ve owned

Great reliable vehicle. This is my second Frontier and my fourth Nissan.it’s a smooth comfortable ride. I keep up with routine oil changes and service and it pays of with Nissans.

Traded 2016 for 2020 and Very Happy

Traded in my 2016 Frontier for a 2020....Same vehicle but different...In a Better way. 9 speed transmission is much better and has the appearance of more power. Handles better. Nothing fancy about interior but what I want vs. paying MUCH more for other brands. Would have been 5 stars across the board but other vehicles are more comfortable....but you will pay for it
