Nissan. The best truck I have ever owned. Very reliable since 2005 for me.

2005 Nissan Frontier

My truck has been the best truck that I have ever owned. Not many problems. Battery a couple of times and tune ups. Oil changes, windshield wipers don't last long. But all in all it goes every time I want to go somewhere. The seats are comfortable and just enough room for two people and enough space to carry a load in the bed of the truck. Heater and cooler works great. It does not have a lot of power to get it up long hill. But it gets u there with some down shifting. Works pretty good in snow. But forget hills. I love my truck and I recommend it to everyone.

Visibility is good from drivers seat mirrors are good.

2005 Nissan Frontier

It has been extremely reliable. Its comfortable economical, and durable. Easy on tires, and other components lasted for a long time, extremely easy to drive, maneuverable hauls a good load and features in the bed make it easy to tie down loads securely, and a feature of the tailgate prevents it from being stole it has. Key lock so tailgate cannot be opened.

- Robert B

Dependable and powerful durable.

2005 Nissan Frontier

Great gas saver. Runs great. A lot of power. Comfortable seats. Not too big and not too small. Easy to find parking. The only problem I have had is the catalytic converters. Ac works great. Do not like that a kid's car seat cannot be strapped properly. Engine when maintained stays clean and does not breakdown. Windows are electric.
