"Very very good truck. Before purchasing I compared between the Frontier and Tacoma. At first I was going to go for the Tacoma but after reading up more and test driving the frontier I decided for the Frontier. I proudly say I own an automatic 2007 Frontier Crew Cab SE short bed here is a list of my opinions, hope this helps!
1) Price- Better value over Tacoma, the tac. is overpriced! I bought my Frontier used and although it does not have the same resale value of the Tacoma, I feel I got a great truck for what I paid.
2) The Frontier has great power, loaded or unloaded. Has a great cabin, very quiet smooth ride. Absorbs bumps very well. Handles nicely, however turning radius is very bad, use caution on uturns! Sometimes the gears on the automatic shift weird. Gas mileage is fair has a 20 gal tank which lasts me 350 miles, however I am a crazy driver and like to step on it.
3) Interior -- This truck has better visibility than the tacoma. windshield is much larger and can see more. Comfortable front seats, I have a crew cab, and the back seats could use a few extra inches of legroom but its enough for kids. Steering wheel is thick providing nice truck like feeling and grip of the wheel. Center console has clean simple design that looks very good. lots of room inside for cd's, pens, change, 2 glove boxes, 8 cup holders, passenger seat folds flat. However some parts of the door panels looks like cheap plastic but if you take care of your tuck you'll be fine. Back seats fold up and down, when seats folded down you can hear wind noise however.
4) Exterior- Utilitrack system is great! very handy when loading things, you have a lot of options to tie down and secure your cargo. The rear door of the bed is very solid nice and heavy door unlike tacoma, feels flimsy and small. Bed is good size made with good sized dimensions to keep your cargo safe. Truck looks great at all times, clean , muddy, dirty, rainy. I get a lot of stares. the whole truck looks more solidly build (and it is) over the tacoma.
Overall I am very happy with my purchase I am glad I went with the Frontier, it has a couple of drawbacks but compared to the many positives you get with this truck you won't even mind the negatives. My next truck I want it to be the Frontier but NISMO edition or the new 09 PRO models. I hope I have this truck forever and im sure it will last forever.! NISSAN IF YOU ARE READING THIS PLEASE ADD A REAR SLIDING WINDOW IN THE BACK FOR ALL MODELS!!!!"
