Smooth riding cruise control truck.

The only problem that I have had is with the air compressor to the ac and the back passenger door not opening. The four doors is very convenient and has child locks on back door. The v6 has plenty power to pull my small travel trailer and is much cheaper on gas than a v8. . Cruise control is easy to use and rides and drives excellent.

Frontier: a family pickup truck.

I love my car! It is reliable and fits 5 people comfortably and with seat belts, the bed is great for traveling and long drives as well as transporting furniture. I have not had many problems with this car, it has decent gas mileage and I drive it almost every day. I have had it since ‘01 and it is still in good working condition.

- Rachel F

Was ok at first but never was a comfortable ride.

This vehicle is a gas hog. It has less than 20 miles to the gallon. It is also nosy and bumpy ride. It is not comfortable for a long trip. Of course it is 18 years old. We had gas tank issues when it was just pass the warranty. Brakes have had to be replaced frequently.
