2008 Nissan Frontier King Cab SE 4.0L gas
Built solid and reliable
I think there was a loose wire in the stereo. The sound kept going out, but a quick hammer fist to the top of the dash has fixed it permanently (so far).
This truck has been very reliable for me. No shop visits. The 6 speed trans is smooth, it has good power for passing on the highway, gas mileage is decent, the 4X4 system is great, and I've had 1800 lbs of gravel in the bed. I can't say anything bad about it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I just wanted to update. I just rolled over 65,000 kms with no issues. I replaced the OE tires recently as they had worn pretty poorly. Other than that, just gas and oil changes. The truck has got me through some pretty major snowstorms, and a few weeks of -30 degree Celcius starts.
Still no complaints or repairs.
Another update. 80,000 kms, no repairs. Runs like a top.
Update. Just rolled over 100,000km. I had a noisy rear u-joint replaced under warranty at around 90,000. Other than that, the truck is running great.
Just thought I'd update my gas mileage. I'm getting an average of 19.5 MPG driving from the suburbs into downtown for work every day. It's around 17 miles one way. (Around 18 MPG on winter gas and 21-22 MPG on summer gas) I've hit as high as 27 MPG on a few highway trips, but 24-25 seems to be the norm.
The manual transmission seems to get a lot better mileage than the automatics.
