I am on my second Canadian winter with my 2007 Frontier and have no real complaints. The defrosting system has not been an issue. The heated mirrors keep those cleared nicely from my experience. I agree with the arm rest being too low, a simple thing that really becomes a big annoyance.

I have a 2006 Nissan Frontier and put about 12,000 miles on it so far. I live in Winnipeg and we get -50 winters.. I've never had any issues with the heat or defrosting system.. I don't even have heated mirrors and never had issues with ice build up..
-Heat Prob? Prob Check your anti-freeze level.. leaks?
-Mirrors/Ice Build up? Simply clean with a scraper before you begin your journey..

I have a 2005 4x4 Frontier Crew Cab and it has been nothing short of awesome in the snow. So good in fact, that there was a couple of times I didn't even need to chain up. A good set of tires really helps, I am running Yokohama Geolandar A/T S's and they've been great. No problems with the defrost either.
For what it's worth, the temperature doesn't get much below the teens where I live, but we've had quite a bit of snow the last few years.
I love my Frontier, and plan on driving it till the wheels fall off!

I can't say I have any problems with the defrost. Mine works perfectly in Canada.
The mirrors are the same as any other vehicle on the road. If you recess them, then you won't be able to see out of them properly.
I like the armrest, and I understand that everyone's different, but that's something you should have thought about before you bought it. I never understand why people write things like that. If the vehicle wasn't comfortable, why did you buy it and then complain about it?
My truck is pretty unstoppable in the snow. It's very stable if you are able to turn the little 4x4 knob.
