"I have had this truck for a little over a year and use it for towing a boat, hauling stuff for the house, and commuting back and forth to work. Fuel economy is good for a truck with a 4L V6and I get 20-21mpg on my daily commute back and forth to work. I have gotten as high as 23.5 on straight hwy driving. Towing my boat I get a little better that 17mpg. It has plenty of pick up and go. So far I have only had to do regular oil changes. The OEM tires are holding up quit well and I think I will get about 40K miles out of them. The only con I have is in cold weather the transmission doesn't like to shift into a higher gear until the truck warms up. The nice grunt it has in warmer water goes away and I run about 2X the rpm. On hilly roads where it stays in high gear and running about 1100rpm in the summer the truck runs at 2000rpm which really lowers the fuel economy. Overall very good truck. The 4L V6 gets much better mileage than my old B2300 which only had a 4 cylinder in it. Still loving it after a year!"

"I've owned this truck for 1 year, 8,100 miles. King cab S, 2.5L Automatic. My gas mileage is what it said it would get. 17-18 city, 22-23 highway. (This was after the first tank of gas). Plenty of power/pep. Has a little road noise on right side. Seats are comfortable. Overall great construction. Other than being a little rough on bumpy roads, the ride is very good. I like the fact that it's easy for me to get into.(I'm 68)"

"This is my 2nd Nissan Truck. 1st one '93 4cyl KC AT 2WD, After 20 year's, replaced with this 2013 6cyl KC AT 2WD. Both Truck's bought New. The '93 was still running good when I sold it. After 20 year's, I just wanted a New Truck. The 2013 is Very Tight and Quiet. The Steering is starting to limber up. I prefer the steering to be too tight than too loose, so that's a positive. This is my only vehicle, so MPG is important, and I'm glad to report after over 20 Fillup's, My truck is averageing 20.6 MPG. My driveing is mixed with Traffic Light's, 2 lane 55mph and Interstate 65mph. If taken care of, these Nissan Truck's hold their Value Good. According to KBB, the '13 is still worth about what I paid for it. The '93, I paid 10K for it out the door; 20 year's later & 176K mile's, it brought 4K cash. That's OK in my book. I also gave the Tacoma a shot, but in the end, I just got more for less money with the Nissan Truck. I took care of the '93 and it paid me back with good service and resale. It's still early on the '13, but I intend to do my part, takeing care of it, and so far, I can report, so good. One thing that I can say about the '13, is that the 4.0 V6 has impressive power, and the 2WD, get's decent MPG, if driven modestly, and it doesn't look Half Bad either. A word of advice; If you want your Truck to last, don't go looking for the nearest Mud Hole that you can find, if you want your Truck to Last. All that marketing showing Truck's in the Mud, Pulling Stump's out of the Ground, and Climbing Bolder's is just Marketing Hype for Sucker's that will wind up with a Wore Out, Broken Down Truck, way before it's time, no matter what Brand you Get."

Cons: "Turning radius & somewhat bland interior"

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

"This is my second Frontier,(my first was a 2004)and love the power & acceleration the V6 provides.The seats are surprisingly comfortable especially for long rides. Another surprise is you can carry a conversation doing 65 mph without raising your voice. The only disappointments are the turning radius which is tight and a better job could have been done with the interior appointments.If you like changing your oil, it takes some getting used to although not as difficult as the 2004 and reading your transmission fluid is also awkward. Otherwise the truck feels solid and Nissan reliability shouldn't be a problem."

Pros: "Wonderful for mountain roads and in the snow"

Cons: "Tire sensors for tire pressure do not work."

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

"This vehicle has low mileage and is in excellent mechanical condition. There are a few minor dents/ Scratches that could be fixed. Interior upholstery is almost like new. Front tires are like new. Back tires have about 50% wear. It is a standard and so in the wintertime it will literally 'creep" down snowy mountain roads in four wheel low."
