Best Truck For The Money. — I had a 2006 and totaled it in a head on collision. All air bags deployed and I walked away without injury. Any truck you can total and not take any damage seems to be a good buy. It is built very well. Drives very nice and gets great gas mileage. v6 with almost the same horsepower as the bigger gas guzzling Titan. I love this truck.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Best truck I have ever owned.

Cons: Wish it had they offered a turbo

Id Give It 7.5 Out Of 10. — Performance - Its quick for a V6 and handles like a champ off road. Build Quality - To much plastic for my taste, but overall i have no problems. Appearance - Personally i like the styling of the truck but the orange meter color i hate. Cost of Ownership - It is a gas hog. Fun Factor - It is great off road. The 4x4 on the fly shift is great for if i want to slide her around or really dig in the dirt.

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

Pros: It's sharp looking, built pretty good, and performs great.

Cons: If you want gas economy this is not the truck for you.

2008 Nissan Frontier —

The 2008 Frontier is a solid performer in a sea of compact pickups. With a 4.0L V6 engine paired with the 6-speed manual, this truck delivers a high level of torque at low RPMs. The acceleration is quick for a vehicle of this magnitude, with 0-60 times at around 7.x seconds. While it doesn't quite handle like a car, it provides a sure grip on the road without that truck-like feel. This truck is built as tough as they come. The interior craftsmanship, while very bland, is well put together without any rattles or signs of disrepair. The appearance of the interior and exterior is very spartan compared to its competitors, but it still maintains a solid truck-type appeal. Pickups usually get a bad stigma for their gas mileage, but this truck is breaking the mold. It was able to achieve 21 mpg in the city, with an average of 18. It has not been taken in for any major repairs. This car is filled with just the right amount of power for the average person to haul or tow boats, tools, etc., and it is the perfect size for anyone looking for a capable vehicle without the magnitude of a mid- or full-size pickup.

Pros: A lot of power for a compact, Great gas mileage

Cons: Bland interior and exterior

Nissan Frontier — Performance: Step on the gas? This truck is amazing in almost all respects. For a truck, it handles great, and has great torque. Haven't tried the 4x4 yet, but I'm sure that's amazing as well! Build: Very, very solid. Appearance: it's a truck... quite vulgar in some ways, and it doesn't have the big Dodge crosshairs.

Pros: Handling, Acceleration, Interior

Cons: The front fiasca isn't my style

Sporty And Roomy — Performance is awesome, with a V6 1.5 Litter engine, it wouldnt be a truck woth out it. Great acceleration and great breaking. Also is equiped with an aoutomatic breaking system. As a 2008 vehicle, It hasnt had any major maintenace except a regular oil change. The truck is just an amazing work of art. the interior lining of the seats are just a never before seen material. Yet the gas mileage is at an average its still ver fun too drive. I would highly recomend this to a freind, especially to someone who whants to start a family.

Pros: Nice look, Great investment

Cons: Gas mileage

Not Too Big, Not Too Small, But Just Right — It is a solid well handling truck that has a very smooth ride. Acceleration is quick and responsive. Cab is very quiet. Minor downsides: The rear seating area is a bit cramped but I use it for storage anyway - The interior is a bit plastic and very utilitarian - Right arm rest needs to extend out further

Pros: Interior space
+ Towing capacity
+ Available side curtain airbags

Cons: n/a

Family Car Ranked 2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac better.
"Nicer ride. More interior space. Basically an SUV with a box. Good people hauler with decent off road capability and good towing power. It is a nicer looking interior than the Nissan."
Would Buy Ranked 2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac better.
"More refined car. Interior is nicer and the overall exterior is better looking. Get the V-8. The Nissan Frontier is a more powerful V-6 than Fords 4.0 L V-6. If you are looking for something to do a lot of hauling in the box, then go with the Frontier. For more of a town truck with good towing capacity, go with the Ford Explorer Sport Track. Ford was reall stupid to drop this concept. They are coming out with a new mid-size ranger. Only took them 7 years to figure out what a dumb mistake they made dropping this size of truck"
