"I own two 1993 se-v6's with one being a manual and the other an automatic.While the motors are very hard to kill the frames can tend to sustain heavy rust. Although in my experience the old Nissan hard bodys have always been good trucks, and if you can get your hands on one in good shape for a decent price I would highly recommend buying it for driving around town. I have found that a can of spray bed liner or rustoleum primer can help prevent any further rust to the frames."

"I bought this truck new. Used for driving to work and pleasure, no off the road travel. I have kept the oil changes etc. faithfully and it has been garage kept its entire life. This vehicle is as close to new looking as it can get. It has a fiberglass cover on the bed so even the bed is spotless."

Cons: "Values on here are way off on these 4x4 models"

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

"If you look up the blue book on these small 4x4 pickups for so unknown reason the value are very low of KKB. In reality the values have never been higher on these little pickups. I have sold 9 of these in the last 2 years and they will bring from $3500-$7000 for these pickups. I do not known where KBB gets there sales comps but they are way off on this vehicle. So don't worry about paying a little more than the value on here. Thanks!"

Pros: "economical dependable 5 sp sliding rear"

Cons: "many offers to buy LOL"

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

"Still humming everyday. Yes, a few minor problems. Front pads,2 sets of tires ($400),battery, belts. Original rear drum shoes. 4x4 is dependable and never failed to get me where I needed to go. Ziebart and NO rust. Just changed oil/air filters....$30 LOL try that with your 2012 & up pickup trucks. Runs like a top...and still can get a bit of chirp in second. overall....I figured my total expenses for lifetime - 200 months = under $100/month. 20mpg is minimum. I love free wheeling. LOVE my TRUCK"

"I am the second owner of this truck and am very pleased with its reliability and low cost. Good mileage, with a tough suspension. 4x4 with locking hubs and low range can go anywhere."
