Love our Nissan frontier truck.

Love the way the truck drives and ride, has a good sound system and has been used for loading. The truck has plenty of legroom in the front and back. We did have a few problems with the clutch pad but repairs were made by the owner. The dealership wanted to charge too much.

- Dell S

Reliable and good gas Usage gets me to work and back.

My truck is plenty used mostly to drive to work d back, its currently having ac trouble with the front ac fans no cold air is coming out the rest works. Its seats are working properly and are comfortable. Its power windows seem to be working fine.

- Dustin P

It's very comfortable whether you are driving or riding.

My vehicle is very comfortable, whether you're driving or riding. It handles well in bad weather and I like the color. I don't like the roof rack that is on the roof of the truck. Everything else is great.
