One Bad-ass Little Truck — I love my truck! It isn't truly what I expected from a supercharged vehicle, but its a truck. The styling exaclty what I wanted. I had ridden in a friend's Desert Runner Frontier prior to buying mine, and fell in love. The attached stock photo is exactly like the one that I have, except mine has a sprayed-in bed liner and a black toolbox in the bed. I don't have any decals on the side of my bed. This is the fourth year that I've owned it. It certainly isn't the best as far as gas milage, but I feel good driving it. I would either like to make a few performance modifications to it, or maybe get a newer Frontier. It would still have to be a crew cab, but unfortunately it would not be a supercharged version from the factory. Nissan stopped production of supercharged models in '03 or '04. It also has an awesome factory option Rockford Fosgate stereo system. It sounds better than some that I've heard in luxury cars. I'll probably drive it until it falls apart, but then again, I drive all of my vehicle until they fall apart. At least I try to fix them when they do.

Pros

Ride, acceleration, inside, radio

Cons

Bad gas mileage

02 Nissan Frontier — The only con about the car is the gas mileage. It does not get that much per gallon and it costs almost $80 to fill up!!! The car rides very smoothly and the radio is pretty loud for stock.

2002 Nissan Crew Cab 4x4 — Good gas milage for a 4wd, love the 5 speed manual, stock 4wd is great, handles like a car, offroads like a beast. Its built very tough, appearance outside is pleasing, inside the cabin it is clean and looks good, not like a luxury truck, perfect truck for work and play, maintenance is inexpensive. Love it factor!

Pros

Maintains my faith in Nissan to build very reliable vehicles. Very few problems with it.

Cons

Mileage is a concern. At best I can squeeze 18mpg out of it if I do a lot of highway driving. The crew cab is a little better than the extended but I would not want to try to put two adults in the rear. Otherwise, after usage the labels on some of the controls wore off rather quick.

Totally Ridiculous, But Very Fun! — The supercharger probably helps but it is hardly impressive, and I'm not sure it is designed to be. Even with the crew cab there is not a lot of room inside it. The matching colored leather seats are neat, but man...for my truck you REALLY gotta like the color yellow!

Love My 2002 Nissan Frontier — I love this truck. It's my first truck and it's the absolute best. I was surprised at what good gas mileage we got when we drove up north from the Twin Cities and back. It's awful on gas in the cities. I've never felt safer in a vehicle before.

Fun To Drivre... — I purchased the truck new and enjoyed every mile between gas stations. I was lucky to get over 200 miles per tank. This truck also reguires premium fuel. Get past the fuel range and it was super dependable and a good looker. The 21/2 inch Rancho lift and 1 inch offset rims gave a better ride and look. This is a strong little truck and i am sad to see it go.

Best Truck In Its Class! — This truck is a great buy! Its classy yet inexpensive. If your looking for a stylish, midsized truck with just the right amount of power then this is the truck for you. Despite its amazing qualities it is easy on the pocket book! With gas mileage averaging 18 and a price tag under 20k you can't go wrong!!!

Nissan Builds Only The Best!! — It's a great truck for anyone that wants power, yet a sleek design. It has all the features that you need, and more; power windows, power steering, CD, AM/FM Radio, temperature gauge, vector gauge, anti-lock brakes, not to mention the factory towing package. All in all it's arguably the best truck on the market!
