1992 Nissan Hardbody Pickup 2.3 litter from North America


Nice truck, good gas mileage, and very reliable


I have replaced brakes on the vehicle once every 3 years or so.

Muffler replaced 3 times since owning vehicle.

Cat converter replaced a few years ago, truck actually has 2 small ones on it.

Starter went after 126,000 miles.

Starting to notice rust on body now, after 13 years.

I was going thru tires allot until I got a good front end alignment. Now Tires have been replaced every 2 years, at about 10,000 miles per year.

General Comments:

This truck has been very reliable. I purchased it in 1996, and I still drive it today. Most of the problems I have had with it have been normal wear and tear. I would suggest this truck to anyone who wants good reliability, and a long lasting truck.

Do you think that the Automatic transmission is capable of hauling a load of 1200 lbs on the box?

I love this truck, I will buy another one if I ever get the chance


I have owned my little Nissan pickup for over 8 years now, and so far the only thing's I have needed to replace are the starter, tires, brakes, exhaust, and oil changes. As of this month I have personally put over 100,000 miles on this vehicle.

General Comments:

I swear this truck is the most reliable vehicle ever made. I have owned it for 8 years and it still runs strong.

I've put just over 170,000 on my 95. I traded in a 94 (with over 30,000 miles) for the 95 extra cab.

I cannot believe how reliable these trucks are. The only thing replaced under 100,000 miles was the alternator. It's still got almost all original parts, including the clutch. Even though I've regularly towed a small boat.

I don't know how the new Nissan trucks compare, but the ones of this vintage are bullet proof.

I just bought a 1992 nissan 2x4. It has 385,000 kms on it and that truck runs like it is brand new. lots of power to, for a four cylinder.

1992 Nissan Hardbody Pickup 2.4L from North America


Good and Reliable, I take it on 280 mile road trips all the time


Cat got clogged up so I cut it out and replaced the exhaust with a flow master muffler.

Water pump went out at 152050 miles $65.

The previous owner added a lot of stop leak to keep the water pump from leaking and clogged the radiator, so I got a new one at a salvage yard for $40.

I replaced the shocks 50 miles ago.

The seat has has a rip in it nothing a seat cover couldn't fix.

Its has a new right mirror and tail light because I was sideswiped.

General Comments:

The things a animal it has good power for its size.

It will easily 33 by 12.50 mud terrains

I've put it threw hell and its still running, It should easily make it 200,000+ miles

After putting different exhaust, cutting out the cat., K&N air filter, and tweaking the E.C.M. I got about 30 more horsepower.

Inexpensive reliable workhorse


At about 175,000 I had a relay switch go bad, it fired two starters...but after replaced has worked fine.

At about same miles, it started to run hot so I replaced the radiator, and though not needed I replaced the water pump, thermostat and some hoses. Now water temp is where it should be and even on a 90+ degree day running at 80 MPH you can't get it to budge.

I have run synthetic 5-50W oil in it since day one so that may have helped.

General Comments:

Other than standard repairs like break replacements etc... this truck has been a real money saver. The strange thing is, now that I am looking at the 250,000 mile stone, I have never heard form anyone else that has gotten more mile out of a 1993 Model year 2.4L Nissan truck... is mine gonna die on the way home from work today? If it does it will still be in my memory as the most reliable car that I have ever owned.

What is the location of the relay you changed? I have the exact problem with a 1993 Nissan pickup, and think I have the same starter problem.
