Good gas mileage, when it runs.

I bought it used and high mileage. Within a couple of months it stalled out at an intersection. It was four months until I could get the money together to replace the engine. Replacement parts were hard to come by. The brakes went out in a mountain pass, the ac couldn’t be run without putting drag on the engine. It has broken down again, overheating was a major issue. The coolant was leaking into the head gasket, and into the oil line.

- Sarah E

A great older small truck.

It is got the usual problems of any vehicle this old, but it is so simply engineered that repairs seem almost easy, and it is a basic enough manufacture that there is not too much that goes wrong. I have appreciated how easily I am able to do work on it, and I am not mechanically inclined. It is been a real joy to have since I purchased it in 2015.

- Blaine H

My vehicle is dependable, sturdy, and simple to drive.

The 2001 Nissan is my second Nissan truck. My first was a 1986 pick-up, and they are very dependable. The heat gauge quit working, and I DID NOT like having to replace the whole dashboard unit to get it fixed at a great expense for me. I am sold on the older model pickups because I can get in and out of them without a ladder.
