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.
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.
Cons: none,so far.
Advice: test drive and feel for yourself.Smooth Ride,a little rough on some roads but the overall performance is EXCELLENT. I love the way I feel when I'm driving my new Nissan SE. I needed the proformance and the Drivetrain of a truck that dealers the power and usage factor a truck like this can give Thank You, Nissan.
Pros: Ease of entrance
Cons: Heavy tailgate
Advice: Do comparison shoppingFor a vehicle this size and design, excellent handling and comfort. Gas mileage could be better. But, I understood what the mileage would be before I made the purchase. Spacious interior.
