Love our Nissan Frontier, it is perfect!

I love my Nissan, Frontier. We drive it everywhere we go. We bought it because we wanted a truck, but also needed extra space for the family, so it has worked out perfectly for our family. It uses a minimum amount of gas so we drive it on long trips as well as the short ones. It is very comfortable for our family of 4.

250, 000 miles and still running.

I have driven this truck for 14 years with 248, 000 miles. It has been a great vehicle! We have had just the regular maintenance and wear and tear. It is still a good looking truck. I have replaced the transmission and there is an oil leak issue with the o rings. We have had all that fixed and it still runs great.

- Kay L

Never broken down of given any trouble!

My Nissan Frontier is extremely reliable. I believe it will last me my lifetime and will be the only vehicle I will ever won. It rides very smoothly, comfortably, and drives very easily. The Air Conditioner cools in seconds and keeps the cabin like and ice box. It is a great truck and tough too!
