Sporty Midsized Truck That Is A Lot Of Fun To Drive. — My only complaint is that I had more room in the king cab, but really it's a non-issue so long as you know there is pleanty of room for the driver and passenger. Lots of HP for a midsized truck. Hauls everything and then some. Reliable, well built, handles great, and feels solid on the road.

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

Pros: Powerful, responsive, and handles well. Excellent payload and hauling. Fun to drive.

Cons: Only complaint is I wish ex-cab was a little larger.

Awesome Truck ! — Nissan made all the right choices when they redesigned the Frontier for 2005 ... Comfort, Styling, Performance, Power and Reliability are all included. Read my "Pros" and "Cons" for my honest opinions about the quality, performance and reliability of this vehicle.

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

Pros: Overall, this has been a GREAT truck. Comfortable to drive across town or across the country without giving up the substantial "feel" of driving a truck. Very reliable and dependable with little more than just routine maintenance ! Positive handling on dry roads and winter weather.  

Cons: Nothing that I have experienced. I have owned this truck since May 2005 and have nothing but the best to say about it.

Yota Slayer — This truck is very well built, it has excellent power much more than any stock tacoma or ranger. It drives like a dream and has never given any trouble what so ever however, it only gets 17 mpg and has a horrible turning radius.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good Power

Cons: Bad turing radius

Amazing — The Frontier is my favorite car. The it is foreign and a little more expensive to fix the engine ins nearly brand new. Also it is a Nissan so if you shot the engine with a shot un it will still run. It is perfect for anything you might need. It is a four cylinder so it isn't great for pulling trailers but if you want to pull trailers don't get a Frontier.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gets 25 miles to the gallon

Cons: The cab is a little small in the back (duh)

Nissan Frontier 4x4 — Drives the best of all the mid-sized pickups I tested. This drives more like a decent car than a truck. I have the six speed and it is great fun to drive especially when the tachometer crosses 3-grand. It also has the most room inside of all the mid size pickups, without the cost and size of a full size.

Pros: Roomy

Cons: Could use more power (but what car cannot)

Fantastic Affordable Mid-size Truck By parkerb1454

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
