Most Fun Truck I've Driven!!! — I have no complaints about this truck or any Nissan for that matter!!!!! Fit and finish is far better than any competitors, the factory Bilsteins are great! It is a blast to drive!! Not the fastest thing out there but definitely not the slowest!!!!! only downside is the kinda plain interior, but thats an easy fix with a few hours of work!!!

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

Pros: the handling and performance of a truck in this class is unmatched!!!!!

Cons: none!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Will Drive It Until Nissan Redisigns The Frontier. Then I'll Wait A Year And Buy Another One. — Four years old on 10/17/09, 102K on the odometer. 265-hp Nissan VQ engine purrs like the day I drove it from the dealer's lot. Six-speed stick: the ONLY way to travel, and the clutch engages exactly where it did when it was new. 21 MPG is amazing for this truck. Won't let me down in a muddy cornfield, does whatever I ask of it. Best vehicle I've ever owned.

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

Pros: MINE. You can't drive it.

Cons: If your kids are over 6 feet tall, the back seat will prove to be awful tight

Frontier Quiz — This truck is solid as a rock with its fully boxed frame and skid plates. Really fun off-road and on the street. Excellent acceleration and braking. There was squeak a while back but I found it and hade it fixed.

Pros: Buy one.

Cons: Lots of outside noise.

2006 Frontier Se — First off its the 6 speed, which isn't an option on the trim level. The interior is plane and 100% cheap plastic, but thats why it was 3k less than a Tacoma. The VQ40de makes no torque below 1500rpm, but at proper rpm it can tow a boat or another car easily enough. My biggest complaint is the suicide rear doors. They create a huge blindspot and serve no purpose. The back seat is comically small, so small I would never dream of putting passengers back there. Thus what is the purpose of the 2nd set of doors? Turning radius is terible. Infact its worse than my dad's yucon XL.

Pros: Horse power, transmission, towing and payload

Cons: low end torque, visibility, turning radius

My Southarn Pride "the Truck" — Very stable on the road. ABS is very active get engaged very often for me. Inside and out is tough looking. Excellent suspension, awsome gas millage about 17/18 mpg on highways. No maintance was done yet other than oil change. Only drawback is engine noise, a little loud.

Pros: Heavy and Stable

Cons: Noisey

Me Baby! — performance - acceleration from static position is not as good. turbo only starts kicking in after the rpm reaches 2. you will feel the jerk once the turbo kicks in. this is obvious when in 1st gear. sudden braking at high speed would cause it to spin as it has no ABS and the weight distribution is not equal [front is heavier with engine & driver while back bucket is light unless filled with lotsa heavy stuff]. so, u have gotta be good at handling the ride. know how to maneuver when u can feel it starting to skid ;) otherwise, it's definitely the best in its class! appearance - exterior: muscular full specs with changes of rims & tyres [bridgestone's dessert dueler]. interior: had it custom ordered with airbags, installation of overhead LCD screen & change of audio system with DVD player. cost of ownership - not to burn a big hole in your pocket fun factor - a hell lot of fun to drive!

Pros: powerful

Cons: lower than other pick-ups. bad for off road driving at terrains where height does matter

-- — Best pickup in it's class! This truck is a great overall mid-size truck. If you want a nice looking, good performing, solid truck for work or for yourself, and you don't want to spend over 20K on a new car, then this truck's for you. I have one in black which I got for 18K. Lots of hp for the size of the truck. The interior could be a little more comfy- neoprene is a bit scratchy. Rockford fosgate system with sub is amazing, and bed system/ bed extender is a must.

Pros: descent gas, fast as hell

Cons: descent gas, fast as hell

Nissan Frontier — Good all around vehicle. Very good acceleration for a truck but still gets good gas mileage. Love the spray-in bed liner and the Utilitrak tie down system.

Pros: Power, Highway Fuel Economy, Utility

Cons: In-town Fuel Economy, Blind Spot

Quiet and smooth ride. Easy transfer from 4x2 to 4x4. No car play but that’s not important to me. It’s comparable to Toyota Tacoma. V6 310HP Read More
