Advice: There is a reason Nissan Trucks are lower priced, but do your homework & haggle w/ Toyota instead. You get your moneys worth.It is very difficult to maneuver this vehicle into a parking space pulling into a spot at a 90 degree angle because of the very required wide turning radius of this vehicle. When making a legal u-turn at a stop light, I often have to back the vehicle up to clear the sidewalk. I've noticed, full size pick up trucks can clear u-turns that I cant. Do not buy this vehicle, it is not worth it. The finish in the interior way below average compared to it's competitors. Nissan marketing are liars, when they claim the turning radius is comparable with similar lenght vehicles. Save you money, don't make the mistake I made. please. Nissan is behind the times in customer service, they are not customer oriented. They require a $5.00 fee for making payments on their website if it isn't automatic bill pay. No express service oil changes and no aftermarket accessories for this vehicle as it is not a very good truck.
Pros: 4 wheel drive`
Cons: The wheels split apart and fall off.
Advice: It is unsafe to yourself and others on the road and Nissan will not honor warranty.Dangerous vehicle. Drivers side front wheel split in half at 65mph speed in rush our traffic. Lucky nobody got killed. Dealer - Carlock Nissan in Tupelo, MS, said it had to be caused by road hazard & they & Nissan would not cover under warranty. However, there must be a defect in either the rims or the front wheel design. In either case the Frontier - and possibly other Nissan vehicles with similar wheels - is unsafe. Nissan has had wheel recalls on other vehicles which were replaced at no cost! They have stonewalled us. See federal highway safety administration web site for full complaint on Frontier.
Pros: The power roll down rear window.
Cons: Haven't found anything I don't like about it. Seriously!
Advice: Go with the crew cab. You won't regret it.I drove 740 miles this weekend and averaged 20.2 mpg. This was all highway miles and I had the cruise control set to the speed limit. I love this truck! Around town I average about 19 mpg. This has a V8 5.7L engine. Anywhere I park I almost always have someone say how much they love my truck. I have had it for over 14 months now and haven't had a single problem with it. The back seat rides better than the average car, and has sooo much room. I had a Nissan Sentra for over 9 years and the only problem with that, in the last year, was a rusted muffler (after 9 years). The Nissan quality just can't be beat. I've also had Ford and GMC trucks, but always had problems with them. I'm sticking with Nissan for now on. My wife has a 2001 Infiniti QX4, and likes her SUV. But she said she wants a Nissan Titan Crew Cab for her next vehicle.
Advice: Drive this truck BEFORE you buy anything---It's a real winner!!!This truck is very impressive. Power,ride quality,great price,lots of options,very roomy,very well thought out & engineered truck. Mid-size trucks are very competitive and Nissan definitely has a top contender. Drive it and compare----you'll see.
Pros: Motor, Performance
Cons: Cheap plastic Cup holder, some other Cheap plastics on the interior.
Advice: Definitely test drive one and consider buying, since release bugs should be worked out on new models.Purchased my 2005 Titan late in the year. Within 3 months I had the dreaded brake problem, stopped by the dealership, no questions asked, recall number, put it in the shop and they replaced all rotors and pads with updated parts. Have put 42K miles on the vehicle since then and changed tires, have done nothing but regular maintainence. I drive it to work and back every day and tow my boat to the lake 2 times a week just about every week. The truck has been excellent to date, no window problem, no dash noises, mechanically sound towing the boat and hauling home depot yard junk. My wife's 02 pathfinder has 65K on it and the same, excellent, zero problems, and has been excellent. I have had Ford, Cheverlot, Pontiac, Toyota vehicles over the years and have never been as happy with a vehicle as I have since going to Nissan, the only other I would buy would be Honda.
