Pros: "fantastic price ,fun to drive and feeling safe in"

Cons: "back seats"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"this truck has tremendous power for a 6 cyl. it will tow a camper in excess of 6000lbs.it would be fantastic for a young family with preteen children,or an older couple that just have a couple cats and a dog or 2, our only complaint is the comfort and convenience for more than 2 adults,if u are a little over weight,or stiff jointed it is very difficult to get in and out of the back seats,or even sit on the jump seats , there is barely any leg room,and if u manage to get in and ride back there,u will definitely need help getting out of it when u reach your destination. Over all It is A very good truck and a triple plus value to any one that owns it,Especially if u are towing a camper on long and extended camping trips ,i would recommend this truck to every one.(as long as u don,t have to ride in the back seat."

Should have bought this truck long ago

Pros: "Price, driving fun, power and handling."

Cons: "Too much plastic inside. Drivers seat is too tall"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I bought this truck used and it's been the best truck I've ever owned. It's tight (no squeaking, jiggles or irritating noises) It has more than enough power, but still good MPG for long distance driving. I've owned other trucks (American brands) and they usually had problems with recalls, transmission and engine flaws and excess cabin noise like poorly fitting components that squeak."

"I needed a mid size pick up truck with a 6 foot bed. The Frontier gives you a large bed on a mid size frame. Fuel economy is not as good as it should be. I get 10 mpg city, 18 highway. The turning ratio on the long bed could be better. I was told most Nissan's turning ratio are not the best. It would be nice if Nissan included the Blind spot monitoring option"

Cons: "NO heat in park!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"I've had this truck for 6 months and 10,000 miles. I do not love it. It is pretty zippy on dry pavement, but pretty gutless if there is even a suggestion of snow/ice, unless it is in 4x4. I recently had to retire my Toyota Tacoma, and I have regretted not getting another Toyota for the last 6 months. I live in Alaska, it gets cold here. This truck has ZERO heat in park! I can't tell you how aggravating it is to put my children in a truck that is 30 below even after running for 15 minutes! I took the truck to the dealer and they said the antifreeze has to be mixed to exactly 42-48 below. Well, guess what? It didn't fix the problem! And now I am wondering how my truck will fare when it gets to 55 below this winter. Once you get on the road it is OK, but you still have to get in the freezing truck and drive for about 3-5 minutes before it starts to warm up. The windshield defrost is less than 1/3 of the width of the windshield and takes a while to completely defrost. I plan on getting rid of my Nissan as soon as I possibly can."
