"I have owned this vehicle sine 2006, it had 30K miles on it when I bought it. It is one of those trucks that you never have to take a wrench to it. I have replaced the battery, and leaf springs and a new A/C compressor, all of them are still under warranty, this is a fine little truck. For the most part it has existed all o the time I have owned it, in Arizona. It has a class III hitch on it and it is very dependable all around. I keep it serviced and it runs, and runs and runs for me."
"I bought my 2000 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner in Dec 1999. Original owner. Garaged and pampered. Was going to buy a new truck 5 years ago, but prices were outrageous and didn't find a vehicle that I loved as much as my truck...so I spent 2k at Maaco and had it repainted. It looks great, Wet Okole seat covers to protect the original fabric seats. Re-tinted the windows last year. Just had the transmission gasket, valve cover gaskets (both driver and passenger side) replaced. New distributer, cap, spark plugs and wires for the 100k tune up. Oil, Lube and filter every 3k miles (synthetic oil)"
"I purchased this vehicle brand new and loved every minute of driving it. I am a retired Insurance Agent and purchased it for the low insurance rate in my business. I am now retired and my new husband now loves this little truck. It is a workhorse, drives great and someone is always wanting to buy it. The answer has always been no until now. My husband had two strokes and can no longer drive and we have purchased a handicap van. We don't need four vehicles so will sell our little jewel and hope someone else gets many more years of pleasure from this gem."
"This was the best vehicle I could ever hope for. It was incredibly functional, reliable, and safe. I got the car used at 10 years old, and it lasted me in excellent condition for 5 more years. It saved my life in a head on collision that destroyed the car, but I walked away with only minor whiplash. It can safely carry incredibly heavy loads. It has a low center of gravity that keeps it and the driver safe in dangerous wind and weather conditions. It has a very sturdy frame that protects the engine block and passenger. It has a comfortable and compact cab. The 2000 model is not an expensive car, but is worth its weight in gold. I drove it everywhere and it is a good commuter car, getting at least 20 miles to the gallon on a 13 gallon tank. It can equally handle city streets, highways and freeways, as well as rough and unpaved off-roading quite well. It only ever had a few minor mechanical problems during the 5 years I owned it. This car was comfortable and safe. I considered it my driving protector."
