Pros

I love it, everything is reliable, just need to keep up on the oil changes.

Cons

Cannot tow too heavy of a load, and having a standard shift, it has not very quick acceleration but still great truck. I dont care if it doesnt got 0-60 in 4 seconds.

I Love This Truck — Great truck, bought used with 55k on it, no major problems and it has ran like a charm. Love it! I just keep up on the oil changes and have had to do a tune up every now and again but it has 135k on it now and going strong.

Dependable And Has Pep — I love everything about my truck but am considering buying a jeep. It has been very well maintained. Only has a little over 40,000 miles. the truck had great acceleration and braking and handling. I would feel very protected in an accident. With the short bed I can control parking much better in garages,etc. Has bed extender for hauling or going on trips to carry extra.

Pros

Good, reliable commuting vehicle with some cargo capacity.  Nice appearance.

Cons

Needs a little more power and better gas mileage.  Would not plan on hauling a lot or many people for long distances.

Nice, Reliable And Capable — Needed a reliable vehicle for son who is leaving state to play hockey at age 16. Wanted a reliable 4WD with room to haul people and hockey bags. Not a lot of room in back seat, but comfortable for 2 as long as not a long trip. Short bed is adequate as long as you are not carrying a lot of cargo continuously. Can fit two large hockey bags (goalies) in bed, if more room needed, get a topper.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Tough looking truck for a lower trim level, and not being a 4x4.  Seating postion is high for a small truck.  Good MPG!

Cons

Rough ride

Just Got It So I Will Know More With Time. — Just got this truck, so I don't know the maintenance cost and reliability yet as CAR IQ is making me rate it. I also don't tow anything. So far I am impressed. Decent power for a 4 banger. I like how there is not much difference in looks in trim levels with Nissan trucks, unlike Toyota, where if you buy a lower trim it looks cheap and is still overpriced.

Pros

big enough and yet small enough all at the same time

Cons

V6 4X4 drinks allot of gas

25

4000.00 Less Than The Tacoma — four wheel drive has yet to let me down....I would have to say the 3.3 liter V6 is on the gutless side..the brakes have been great, but I think they could have put disc brakes on the rear axle.

My Black Frontier — Acceleration is good, handling is OK for light off road and on road, but the brakes isn't good enough. Exterior appearance good, and interior is good and user fiendly. Very fun to drive for a little family. But the standard tyres arent big enough.

Pros

Great performance from a truck

Cons

Gas guzzler, pain to park

35

Truck Everyone Wouldnt Mind Owning — All around great "small" truck. Supercharger really pulled when needed, the 4 doors made it more practical, the longbed gave me that extra room when making my Home Depot Runs and the 4WD came in handy if I ever needed to go up to the snow or take it off road. This truck is best as a extra vehicle as I had mine as my daily driver which I commuted 20 miles to and from work. I figure I was getting about 18 MPG at best. With its turning radius, the crew cab and long bed parking in small parking lots was a aquired skill

Pros

Handles great, fun to drive

Cons

Underpowered even with the SC, and drinks loads of gas!

205

Great Value — Improvement on the 3.0 with the supercharger making it a 3.3. A bump on HP from 180 to 210 puts a kick under the hood. Nice upgrade for the last year of production from the 1987 original Pathfinder/Hardbody Pick-up. Tough and Rugged a quality build. Fun to drive, pretty good handling for a truck.
