Nissan pick up, nice mid size truck.

2012 Nissan Frontier SV

Nice overall midsize pickup truck. I have the long bed, 6 feet, 4 door. Great for moving large items. Do not get the cargo extender. Not worth it. Been sitting in my shed since I bought the truck. Four wheel drive works very good. Traction is very good in the snow, not the best I have had, but good. Not 'roomy' for 4 or more people, but they will all fit comfortably. Back up camera works very good, probably too good. The last Nissan pick up truck I had I put 130,000 miles on it before selling it to a friend who drove it to 200,000 miles.

Nissan Frontier 2012- highly recommended

2012 Nissan Frontier SV

I have had no engine problems other than check light staying on. It's a 2012 4 door. I did have an issue with the paint peeling, I looked on line other buyers had the same issue with the paint chipping on the fender that was the same color truck as I have. Nissan did not do a recall or repair. It's a very comfortable vehicle. I've had it 12 years and the air still works. It's a great vehicle.

Easy maintenance, easy to drive. Excellent visibility.

2012 Nissan Frontier SV

It's a 2012 Nissan Frontier pick up. It's got a 6 cylinder engine, it has plenty of power, maybe a little too much for such a light weight vehicle. I've as yet had NO problems with this truck and maintenance has so far, been easy to do. It has plenty of room for 4 adults and could easily seat 3 children in the back seat.

Vibrating Nissan Frontier

2012 Nissan Frontier SV

The vehicle came with a low rpm vibration. By this I mean that when the truck is at an isle the rpms dip below 1000 and the whole truck vibrates. Outside of this small uncomfort the truck rides very well and performs great for the light work I do around the house. Gas mileage could be better.
