Great For What It Was Designed For, But Leans A Little Too Much In The Twisties — Got the truck for its towing ability & only occasional off-road use --I'm satisfied with the overall package, but not too thrilled with the body lean towing a motorcycle trailer through the mountains. Otherwise: solid "A" grade on an overall scale.

Power And Fun! — The Nissan VQ enine rocks! Both my Z and my truck have nearly the same HP and Torque, thouh my Z loves curves :) I put some sound in it as the 2005 release didn't offer enouh decibels for me.

The Best Truck I've Ever Owned! — I've had various vehicles/trucks throughout the years and I love my Nissan Frontier. This is one of the toughest trucks I've ever owned. I take it off-road every other weekend and it really takes a beating. The 4.0L V6 has plenty of power (265hp), but I'm still looking to add some additional horsepower (if you know what I mean). If you're in the market for a truck - check this one out!

Pros

The horsepower, cabin size and Rockford Fosgate stereo is ideal.  I also love the styling.  A great truck for the money.

Cons

None worth mentioning.

My 2005 Nissan Frontier 2wd Nismo Rocks!! — I bought my 2005 Nissan Frontier 2WD Nismo 3 weeks ago and have loved every minute of it. The trim is a bit basic, but that's why I bought a truck. The throttle response is great and the cabin size works perfectly for this family of 4. I couldn't ask for a better vehicle for the money.

Fantastic Affordable Mid-size Truck By parkerb1454

Overall it is a great truck for the price. It is an extremely tough truck inside and out. MPG is the only thing that is truly negative about the V6 option. But on that note the 4L V6 gives plenty of p... Read More

Very Good Driver By MCFLeaseReturn

Overall this is a great pick up truck. Lots of leg room in the front and back seats. LWB is a must to be able to haul anything and looks much better than that chopped bed look of the SWB. Read More
