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!

Could Take It To A Next Level If Wanting To Make It An Awesome Truck! — Over all performance is in good shape drives smooth and comfortable. Decent gas milage. Car has a few squeaks but its part of being a truck. Sound system installed. Tool box. 19 mpg Fun car to drive and good for work!

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.

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.

Pros

Serves its purpose as a truck; has an extended cab.

Cons

Not a practical back seat area in extended cab; sometimes hard to hear in the truck when on a cell phone; disappointed in fuel performance.

Unexciting — This truck serves its purpose as reliable transportation that gets you from point A to point B. We are disappointed with the fuel performance, but seems to be durable with over 100k on odometer. Our son primarily uses this vehicle and is handy when needing to transport cargo that would not fit in a van or deep trunk of a passenger car. This is an 11 year + old model and hope Nissan has improved on it.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros

Great small truck with adequate power and space for all my needs.

Cons

I wish I had purchase the model with the factory roof rack. Rear end so light, loss of traction in rain or light snow.

Great Truck For The Person On A Budget. — I purchased this truck brand new in 2002 for $17.5. This truck has taken me all over Texas due to my hobby of participating in mountain bike races across Texas. I plan to keep this truck till the day it dies. I currently have 165k miles on it and the AC has started to give me some small problems. Will be fixing that soon due to this Texas heat all year round. This truck still looks good and I am a very proud owner.

Freaking Awesome. — Great Truck. Rides great- nice and smooth, handles well, has power when you get on it but its a little heavy so it could definitely use some more power.

It's a Nissan....need I say more?

Cons

Cons... does Nissan really have any cons?!

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!
