2004 Nissan Frontier LE 4 cylinder from North America
Original tires were bad.
Rear differential leaked in first week.
Both power windows malfunctioned.
Had to replace all belts at 75,000 miles.
I bought the Frontier instead of a Toyota Tacoma to save money. I thought it would be comparable. It has been a disappointment. Not finished well. Gas mileage is awful and way worse than Chevy S-10. Nice looking though. Dealer could never get vibration out of car at about 70 MPH. Stopped when I bought Michelin tires. Both power windows work poorly, and although replaced under warranty, the new ones work poorly too. Not any power. But does feel reliable. Not the quality I was expecting. Bed liner rattles and is annoying. Manual transmission is smooth.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have been working as a mechanic for a Nissan dealership for almost 25 years. Nissan Frontier (any year) is the best truck on the market. Currently, Iam the owner of 1995 Fronty (4 Cylinder) and its by far the best truck than my previous 2005 Chevy Silverado, 2006 Ford F150, 2002 Ram 1500 etc. I know what Iam talking about. I traded my Chevy for 1995 Frontier straight up and I am REALLY happy that I ve done so. I am still paying for this truck, but I am lucky that I didn't have to put any money down. I towed about 14-15 K LbS on this baby and It showed itself great.
I had only minor issues with my baby-truck. I blew my engine at 277000 miles. This was my fault though. I was having a diarea and I was floring my baby to get home and let my demon out on my lovely toilet. So engine blew, I didn't make it home and I dumped inside the truck. That's the second issue. My Fronty still smells like DOODOO. Oh well. I might take it to the car wash and get it detailed some day. Right now as Iam writing this message I am thinking about installing the NOS on my truck. In my opinion, it'll increase the speed and torque.
With love from Alaska.
