2013 Nissan Frontier

Our Nissan frontier is economical on gas. It has many features that I like such as: rear back up camera, cargo ties, bed liner and cargo ties. Whenever I have taken it to Nissan dealership for service they have been very helpful and have always taken care of any slight problems. The one thing I do not like is that the tire pressure light is always coming on when there is not a tire problem. I think there is a glitch. Other that that I have no complaints. I have been very satisfied with my truck and the service I have received.

Stop looking for something better... It is a keeper!!

2013 Nissan Frontier SV

I am a cause and effect person... Do not do scheduled maintenance, 'don't fix.It, if it am not broke'. Six years and no breakdowns. Replaced tires at 40,000 miles. Replaced wiper blades twice (I live in the desert). Stone strike damaged windshield, replaced last year... Cost of $210. Just change the oil and filter every 5000 miles, fill the windshield washer fluid as needed. Definitely the best and most reliable vehicle I have owned... It will take a 'totaled' wreck or a natural disaster for me to get something else.

be careful about the dealership you purchase from because some of the benefits do not apply unless you go back to that specific dealership. Ultimately, even if the price at a closer dealership is greater initially, it may save you so much hassle and maintenance fees later. In my case, I purchased my Nissan from a dealership that is a 50 minute drive, one way, from my home, and I cannot take advantage of certain benefits because I can't just go to any Nissan dealership, I have to return to the specific dealership where I originally purchased, like I had a warranty on my tires and windshield, but it's not financially advantageous to have to get a three-wheeled truck out 50 minutes drive time to take advantage of my warranty, so, it's really useless.

2013 Nissan Frontier

I dislike that it does not have certain features like sliding rear window and back-up camera and safety features like auto-brake and lane assist, I also do not like that it is equipped to handle an iPod, while I am a dedicated android user. Everything else I really love, the small-ish bed size, 4-door, folding passenger and rear seats, cloth seats, electric windows, it drives great, maintenance is minimal
