White Lightning with enough thunder.

It is affordable and reliable for the 6 months I've owned it. The cabin space seems a little small, but I'm only 5'9' so it works for me, my wife, and 3 year old. I enjoy the 4 door feature; it really makes getting my child in and out of the back easy. I purchased mine after a friend picked one up 2 years ago and told me how me he liked his and how well they rated for the price. At this point, I would definitely recommend one to anyone looking for a smaller truck on a budget.

2018 Nissan frontier midnight edition

The vehicle is very comfortable you can tell they have thought about the interior when designing. One of the downfalls I see is that for the year of the vehicle it is a bit behind the times. The main one is they do not have daytime or auto lights. I have had a few small problems with the vehicle but all but one has been resolved so far. The truck rides well and has enough power to get the job done. Nice truck for working and as day to day vehicle

Small pickup with big features and little price tag.

I purchased this for the price and that I have owned other Nissan products. The truck is perfect for my needs (commuting, trips to Lowe's) fuel mileage beats EPA estimates, but it could have a little more power. Interior is nice with all the comfort items I wanted (cruise, Bluetooth, power windows/locks)the Bluetooth can be fussy at times to connect to. Overall I believe it is an excellent value for the money.
