"This truck is great. It is a utility truck. It is not comfortable like a towncar - it is a work truck. The truck will be 20 years old this year. I have logged over 200,000 miles and the AC is still freezing cold. The only think I ever had to do to the vehicle was put brakes, (3 sets of) tires, new vbelts and a fuel pressure regulator (at 180,000). Still has original clutch! That it. I've pulled boats, traveled 100 miles a day for years. Really a fun truck to drive (it's a standard). I can't believe It'll be 20 years this year. I paid $10,000 for it and had Zero percent financing for 3 years and no payments for 6 months. Bought it in Tampa on 60, what was then called "Nissan of Brandon" anyways - yeah, those that know this truck KNOW this truck. Peace Out."

I have had this truck for 10 years, only one time

"Bought this vehicle from a dealership and never looked back. Runs well w/ maintenance as scheduled but few additional parts or work needed. Not a fancy or especially sporty truck but runs well, is dependable, and even does alright up the mountainous highway. Glad I bought it and wish I could find another with fewer miles for a reasonable price. Happy customer!"

"I bought the truck 10 years ago with 112,000+ miles on it. It has been maintained at a Nissan dealership since I have owned it. I replaced the timing chain at the recommendation of my service technician at about 170,000 miles. I love the vehicle. I would recommend it highly to anyone."
