Everything The Ratings Say and More!
Pros: Build quality
Cons: None reallyRead the reviews on the truck. From the ride, build quality, engine performance and style, my 2010 Frontier SE 4x4 is a dream. Awesome ride, tight build. Probably the best value out there in a mid-size truck. I purchased the King Cab version with automatic.
Pros: 4cylinder 5 speed.
Cons: Turning radius=school busI have the XE model which is the base model and has a 4 cylinder. This is what I wanted: 4 cylinder manual 5 speed, I owned 3 trucks with this before( 1 Nissan, 2 Fords) and then 'upgraded to a V6 auto-hated it. The 2007 Frontier gets 22MPG city highway anywhere except hi speed interstate and/or windy. I mostly drive in the city so had I got a bigger engine it would have been terrible mileage. The interior is laid out great-removable cup holders (easy to clean), storage tray on the dash, one cubbie under the HVAC controls, another in front of the shifter. The passenger seat back folds flat into a table. The back doors open to 90 degrees allowing easy access to the back which is huge with the seats folded up-large enough for suitcases. I removed the child seat attachment to the back seat allowing more room. My wife & I took a 2000 mile trip to Colorado with 2 bikes and what a great rig. 2 bikes mounted to a board across the bed, 2 totes with food, a cooler, and 2 suitcases in the bed. The 4 cylinder did not race up Vail pass but it got 28MPG all day. I think less oxygen=less gas. 19MPG across Kansas. We did 10 hour days and it was comfy. The seats are not the most comfy but they worked even for the long haul. 40,000 miles and never a problem. I use it as a homeowner hauling: furniture, plants, bikes, etc. nothing heavy until I put down sod. My 1st load was 1000# for 40 miles no problem so the next one was 1300# and still no problem. Stiff suspension holds up great much better than Ford Ranger.
Pros: Very reliable and all around great truck
Cons: can't pull a fifth wheelBest all around vehicle I have owned in a long time. 90k mi and still drives like brand new.
Love at first drive
Pros: Interior comfort and looks
Cons: Does not have driver settings memoryI can honestly say that my 2009 Frontier Crew Cab LE is closest to perfect than any vehicle I have ever owned. The ride is smooth, the interior is sweet, the power is awesome and the exterior appearance is stunning. I was so impressed with the test drive that I ordered one right then! Great ride!
