Love it


Not really any that I can think of


Nissan Fronteir — After a year of owning my 2009 Nissan Frontier, I have to say its an excellent truck. I've been able to tow a huge BBQ pit, switch on the 4x4 and drive off road and still get to work each day on cheap gas.

Fun to drive, comfortable, good 4WD


Mileage could be a little better, can't use standard  tire chains, but then not everyone does hardcore mud and snow driving.


Excellent All Around Mid Size Truck, Good Value For The Money, Would Definitely Buy Again — Bought this truck in July 2009 after looking for 4 months. Got a great deal, that could not be matched by Toyota. For a truck the ride is great, handling is above average and power is outstanding. I am comparing this to trucks dating back to 1970, when trucks really felt like trucks. Turns tighter than I expected and 4WD works great. This truck is definitely fun to drive, and the wife even enjoys driving it. OE tires are mediocre, and will be upgrading them this spring. Mileage goes from 13 while 4 wheeling to 23 on the highway. Cab is roomy and comfortable with lots of storage room. Controls are well laid out and easy to use. So far no squeaks or rattles and no repairs. Fit and finish are good, and like all vehicles today lots of plastic.

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

lots of power, handles nice, half decent on gas.


little bit of a stiff suspetion but its a truck.


Great Mid-sized Truck — I love this truck i have owned it for one month as of jan 10 09 and i havnt had any problems. Its cheap to run once broke in and well its got enough power to have some fun with, i hope to do some modifications to it such as exhaust, intake, lift kit, and maybe a supercharger down the line.
