2008 Nissan Frontier LE

I like having a truck. It is 4 wheel drive and it great in the winter months here. This is the top of the line in this model. Electric seats are great for the cold months. Air condition for the hot. I have a topper on my truck which is great for hauling when I don't want the elements affecting the load. Having the crew cab is great for having more than 2 passengers. There is more than enough engine power. The tow package is also nice to have for hauling. It has been very reliable for me. I also have the moonroof. The stereo system has the phone option. Keeps your eyes on the road and not the phone. Very nice safety feature. The stereo system is the top of the line. The mileage is not that great. However, I expected that when I bought it. And I really like to look.

The truck is sporty and fun.

2008 Nissan Frontier

Transmission problems, engine light problems, tire problems, does not do good for mileage in gas, tailgate latch has problems too. Not sure but the head gasket might be going, it does have 87, 000 miles on it. The wheel bearing needs replaced along with breaks, general wear and tear. Nothing to look at on the interior, it is very basic, the truck does have a sporty look and it is a nice size, not too big and bulky. It comes with a nice heavy cap for the back, not much height to fit stuff in. You would need to take it off. Has good horsepower for a 6 cylinder, a lot if get up and go. The transmission seems to slip maybe and it makes a sound like you are running over ridges.

A car worth every penny! Great deal for an all-round versatile truck.

2008 Nissan Frontier

We have over 130, 000 miles and that is awesome. We've had no major issues with this truck; just regular maintenance and tire changes. Our truck is a standard shift 6 speed and basically stripped down meaning no power windows etc. Or frills. We have a radio with CD player and air conditioning. We also pull a 16 foot camper ultra light frequently during the year; also we have 4 wheel drive. The gas mileage is reasonable at 19 miles per gallon on unleaded regular gas.
