"I enjoy the power and overall performance.
Decent looking truck, but way too much hard plastic on the interior. Several continuing chirps and squeaks from different parts of the vehicle. Could use a few more items as standard equipment (e.g., fog lights, heated outside mirrors, power driver seat, etc.)."
"I've been driving SUV's for years and went to a pick up. This was my first Nissan. I had a noise in the engine that turned out to be an electric valve they that to epoxy. I still have an annoying squeak in the left front the my 2005, that is now out of warrenty. The shop would tighten it down to stop the squeak for a month, and it would come back. 5 sp manual gets over 20 mpg, and I've hit 21 on trips. Brakes make a god awful sound when two tires hit dirt and two tires stay on pavement. Shop says it's the anti-lock doing that and it's normal? I have the spray on bed liner, and no one can tell me how to keep the color..it's fading. Bed is extremely hard to clean out with the ridges. Power is good, but it needs more than regular, I suggest using the mid-grade..better milage and engine performace makes up for the 10 to 12 cent difference. Get the 6 ft bed, you'll be glad you did. I'm looking for another truck, the Frontier is in the running, but I'm open to something better. Toyota didn't have all the bells and whistles, it cost more, and the windshield was restrictive compared to the Nissan. 4wd works well in the sand and snow, but if you're diving in sand consider the automatic."
"My brand new nismo was in the service department 10 times before its first oil change. The fun of a new truck quickly turned to disappointment. The steering column brock ,brakes needed to be adjusted, leaf springs were replaced and so on. Worst new car I ever purchased. stay clear of these trucks."
