Nissan frontier: great for any conditions.

The frontier has been very reliable, however the paint on the hood did not last very long. I still enjoy driving it and it's great in any environment. Where it is an off-road vehicle, bumps on the highway will throw it to the side occasionally and it sometimes fishtails, but it is not unmanageable at all, just takes some getting used to.

2011 Nissan frontier likes/dislikes.

The interior is a bit dated compared to some newer models. It still includes XM radio and an auxiliary port. Seats are not leather. The heat takes forever to kick in. There are no backup cameras / sensors. The truck is very reliable, however, and I haven't had any mechanical issues with it.

- Andrew K

My model has a rack on top for extra hauling.

Love driving the frontier. Has lots of foot room, heated seats and you can heal almost anything in the truck bed. Has good lighting and you can see well at night. Gets good gas mileage for a truck. The only thing I do not like about the truck is that it does not have a good turning radius.
