Solid, reliable and good value for the money
The driver's side splash shield (inside the wheel well) ripped off at some point, necessitating a $12 replacement.
This is a simple truck, and some may call it crude. However, if reliability and basic transportation are your main requirements, it's difficult to go wrong with a Nissan truck. I had a regular cab 97 several years ago, and my 98 Frontier extended cab is a much more refined vehicle, while still retaining the easy to maintain, reliable design of the earlier models.
Don't compare these to a Toyota - there's a reason the Toyos are several thousand dollars more. If you settle for a Nissan, you'll never be happy, but if you value the characteristics of Nissan trucks, the Frontier will put a smile on your face.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
