General Comments:

The tranny went at 102000 and carried a price tag of $3000 to fix. Don't buy.

It was also horrible on gas; my new full size Tundra gets about the same mileage, and it isn't even that great on gas.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Summary:

Pretty good so far

Faults:

Watch out for the back paneling around the tires. Rocks spit up frequently and cause chips to this area. They have a protective piece covering part of this area, but does little to stop problem.

General Comments:

I have the 2wd and kind of wish I had gotten 4wd.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had the same problem, ended up having to put line-x on the body to stop the rocks. It's working good so far. Nissan will not do anything about it, but apparently some people have had luck getting compensation.

I had the same issue. Some cheap "eBay" running boards have all but stopped it.
