An excellent choice for tough smaller jobs

2011 Nissan Frontier S

Excellent driving capability in snow and icy weather. It has low 4 wheel drive for those driving moments of tough road conditions. Carries a good amount of weight for its size. Comfortable front seats. The factory stereo has great sound. The short 6' bed is not so great on carting building supplies though, but it can fit a 4 wheeler and a brush hog. With the 2011 model the strap hinges and tracks for the bed that are included are a great bonus. This truck is very durable and hold itself up even with very high mileage. Not too expensive to maintain. There is a bit of a blind spot that you have to get used to though.

4-wheel drive, leg and compartment space, and the medium frame.

2011 Nissan Frontier

Problems - ride can be a little stiff at times and I do not like that there is not an auxiliary outlet. Performance - has been great, it's basically all that I expected it to be. Reliability - I haven't had any problems in this area. I have taken it in for general maintenance and haven't had any other problems that weren't regular wear and tear. Comfort- although the ride can be a bit stiff after awhile, I like the amount of space and storage throughout the vehicle. Features- I do not have any additional features in my vehicle, but I do like the double glove compartment and the storage under the back seats.

Pros and cons of my 2011 Nissan frontier.

2011 Nissan Frontier

Constant problems with tire pressure, problem with service engine light regardless of making necessary repairs. Other than that it runs great good vehicle but bed is small and inadequate for hauling big items. Good for dirt and rough road. Being that it is a 4x4. Good on fuel problem starting on real cold winter mornings, constant problem with acid on battery battles.
