"I have owned this truck for over 14 years and it has rarely needed attention other than regular maintenance. It does have slow pick up because it is an automatic, I imagine a manual transmission of this truck would have increased acceleration. Overall, I would recommend this make/model for purchase."

"Still driving this truck, right now its running great at over 317,000 KMS. it has classic rear fender well rust but not much else. the body panels are very thin steel. and the so called "king cab" is very small only children can sit in the rear folding seats.However its meant to be a small vehicle and the extra room is very useful for cargo that you dont want sliding around in the box. If your looking for a small pickup and cant afford those $10,000 Toyotas. get a Nissan Hardbody."

Pros: "Fun to drive 5 speed, 4x4,"

Cons: "16 mpg, lacks acceleration on highway"

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

"Bought my 97 XE 4x4 a little over a year ago with 95k. My dad had an 87 Hardbody V6 4x4 and he inspired me to get this one. This truck is pound for pound just an amazing vehicle. I couldn't get it stuck if I tried, and it has mounds of torque for a 4 cylinder. Perhaps only downside is 4 cylinder only gets 16 mpg while more modern V8's do better. Also lacks pickup power when the A/C is on. Engine runs like a champ however and shows no signs of slowing down. Looking forward to seeing it cross 200k someday!"

"I love this little truck, its gotten me to an from KS several times with no mechanical failure other than the altenator went out but it was an easy fix. I take it up to TN a few times every few months an ive taken it to SC a few times. I love this little truck, for being such a little truck shes pulled a silverado around with ease, hauled everything ive ever owned all over the place. I couldnt ask for a better little pickup. I hate to see her go when i decide to finally upgrade to a bigger truck. Cant go wrong with the nissan Frontier that i had though!!!!!!!"
