First, Nissan began to offer the Crew Cab, which featured a rear bench seat instead of the inward-facing jump seats in the KingCab and independent rear doors. The first truck was totalled after an accident. Four-wheel drive was useful in February when we drove through a Great Lakes blizzard en route to Texas. Otherwise, this truck is a great value. My only complaint is the back seats are too small for more than the driver and front passenger to be comfortable on a long trip, however if you have kids that won't be an issue as their little legs should fit just fine.
I have 2 other cars now, but I can not bring myself to part with this old friend. The 221 feet required to stop from 70 mph improved to 210 at final testing, but grip on the skidpad, at 0. The brake-and-shifter interlock, an electronic function of the automatic transmission, requires a foot on the brake and a thumb on the shift-lever button before it will allow the shifter to move. I would definitely recommend this truck. The only issue is the front grill which is chrome plated plastic would bubble and flake off. But the Frontier is the first compact truck in the United States to feature four full-size forward-hinged doors.
Each system uses a separate reservoir marked with full lines to ensure proper levels are maintained. Total exhaust system, rear brakes original, but will replace brakes shortly. The diffused light was easy on the eyes and less distracting to the driver than an overhead light. A good testament to its durability was when a dog ripped a hole in the back seat and I set out to find a replacement. By comparison, a Sport Trac has 48 cubes back there -- 12 more than the Frontier -- but nearly five additional inches of the Sport Trac's bed length had to be sacrificed in the name of a bigger back seat. Are we the idiots, or are they? But then I never traveled long distance in the truck sitting in the back seat. Paint red is still excellent shape, no fading, no rust, but do keep it clean and I wax vehicle 4-6 times a years.
Rear leg room is adequate. Not including this truck, we've evaluated four long-term pickups in the past six years. Very disconcerting to feel a truck squirm underneath you. What a blast to drive! It's no surprise this truck was not regarded as a comfy long-distance tripper. They came across very open and honest about everything they knew about the van, good and bad.
In the last year I had the timing belt and the transmission replaced yikes and now it's like a brand new truck. Early on, staffers praised the Frontier's civilized, carlike ride and the decent acceleration provided by its 3. Trucks generally go through pads more quickly than cars, but it seemed a bit soon for that kind of normal wear. Fill as necessary when you cannot insert a small tool into the fill hole and pull it out with liquid on the tip. The doors unlock when the receiver recognizes a preprogrammed sequence of finger taps on the glass. No repairs were required, and when called upon as a light-duty truck, it did not disappoint. I have driven to Florida from Texas and the ride is comfortable based on a small truck.
The fuel filter is located under the truck and is held in place by a bracket that is bolted to the passenger side frame rail. I still have this truck which has never failed me. My family and I are very grateful!!!!!!! I would upgrade to a newer model, but I don't like the new interior upholstry on the 2005 and newer models. Most Frontiers, except the Crew Cab came standard with a 2. Always check the reservoirs with each oil change, and fill as needed. Regular maintenance keeps this truck going. We bought this van and will likely look to Point Auto in the future next time we need a vehicle.
Felt like I could trust them, and that is unusual for a used car dealership in my experience. So ingress and egress are awkward for adults, and it's also easy to get feet tangled on the way out if tall front passengers have their seats moved rearward. The Crew Cab came standard with the. Her story of events were that the car would not st. For its 2001 Frontiers, Nissan is offering an optional supercharger, increasing horsepower from 170 to 210, as well as revamped sheetmetal. I've taken it off-road a bunch, up mountains in blizzards, hauled ridiculous amounts of stuff with it, and it hasn't let me down.
It extends bed length from 54. We had an even bigger problem with drivers disconnecting the control-box wire with their feet when exiting the vehicle. Not the best looker if style is important, but the dependability and quality shines well beyond many of those 'lookers'. Fill levels for the three boxes vary based on engine size and specific type of differential. But Nissan's milieu had always been tough, reliable trucks; granted, a few decades experience building some of the best sports cars in history doesn't seem to have hurt Nissan's penchant for forging pretty amazing little pickups.
The filter has a flat end and a curved end, and I do not know if reversing the directon would cause problems. And the Frontier's relatively small turning circle and tidy dimensions were popular with the city folk. In contrast, the slightly larger Dakota Quad Cab's rear doors open almost 90 degrees. For example, we used a simple code of tap, tap, tap -- pause -- tap, tap, tap. Or that, as a pickup, it is somewhat limited by its small bed, payload a hair more than 1000 pounds , and 5000-pound towing capacity. The engine is smooth but slow.
