    1987 Nissan Pickup Review
    says:
    10
    Bought this current vehicle off an ad from Car Gurus. Considering the age figured there was some work to be done, just didnt expect it so soon. Week after I got it home the voltage regulator went haywire frying the brake light switch. Had to replace the alternator. Three days after that repair the heater core went. But sometimes thats just the way it goes. Also had to remove the Air Induction Valve as you just cant find those anymore. After those repairs this vehicle has been a little champ. Couple of downsides. Suspension while tough, is touchy, sways quite a bit. Heavy cargo (6 standard dry hay bales) causes the front end to pick up a bit causing sway. But most importantly, the 3 Speed Automatic Transmission causes the truck to run a bit over 3000 RPM at 55 mph (3800-4000 at 65) and the gas mileage is modest at best. But it is a V6 with 4WD. Truck is not happy with pot holes and washboard roads. All over the place. Mainly use this truck to get to work and back and to hunt and fish.

    It Doesn't Look The Best, But Has Been A Great Vehicle — This truck has been great for what we paid for it. We've only had to do minimal maintenance on it, plus the routine stuff. This truck has probably been the best vehicle we've owned! The whole family has had something to do with this truck so it has more sentimental value than cash value lol!

    Pros: Bought this truck 5 yrs ago for a couple hundred dollars and it has been great!

    Cons: For it being an older vehicle, I really don't have any cons

    Highly Reliable, But Way Under Powered With The 2.4l. — Performance sucks with the NAPZ 2.4L, along with having the 31" tires. However, the NAPZ engine is very reliable. Gas mileage sucks and the power is way under rated. I guess that's the price you pay for having a 4 wheel drive. No other direct conversions, other than the KA24E or a Buick V6 (Grand National) swap.

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

    Pros: 4X4

    Cons: Under powered engine

    Good Little Pickup — pretty good performance overall, as far as build goes, i had to replace the rear end in it, and and a blown head gasket. but otherwise real good. the vehicle gets pretty good gas mileage about 20+ MPG. and needs little maintenance. its fun to drive i just wish i had the extended cab for more room. its a pretty tight fit with just two people in there

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: good heater

    Cons: real small cab.

    Awsome Pickup Lasts For Over 200k — needs a bigger engine but thats just me. its got alot more get up an go than most v6 pickups. fun truck in the winter if u have the 4x4 model. its a well built small truck. the best thing about it that even tho people here call it a rice burner it gets better gas millage than a small ford or chevy pickup its around 15-25hwy

    Pros: Awsome looking pickup

    Cons: Rusts easly, but thats normal for older pickups

    My Nissan Hardbody — shaved everything, slammed to 3" off the ground, centrelime billet aluminum rims, roll pan, toyota front bumper conversion, clear corners, clear signals, 240SX buckets, tweed wrapped interior(soon to be fully fibreglassed), full custom exhaust. still needs door poppers, a little bit of body work, and soon to have air suspension on it

    Pros: great mini truck project

    Cons: needs body work and needs to be bagged
