1993 Nissan Hardbody Pickup 2.4L Inline 4 from North America
An inexpensive reliable truck
The paint has not held up well over the years, but with the desert sun it is understandable.
No major problems aside from regular maintenance(i.e. brakes, oil changes, etc.)
This truck is an absolute beast! At over 140,000 miles, it is as reliable as the day I drove it off the lot.
The engine still provides decent acceleration and runs smoothly.
The battery life has been extraordinary in my experience. I had one last 6 years in the Arizona heat, which is unheard of out here for any car or truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My Nissan Pick-up D-21 has over 140,000 and it runs great. It still has good acceleration it never over heated on my Grandpa or me. I take it down the hill in high heats and it doesn't even come close to overheating. We got it from my grandpa who passed away a year ago. My dad was driving it home one day and it just quit running. He started it back up and ran for a couple of seconds and died; so he started back up again and barely pushed on the gas and kept it running. He drove it until the tags expired and it sat for two years. So I said to my dad, "Can you go get me some starting fluid so I can see if it has an intake leak?" So I got in the truck, started it and kept it running at one speed. My dad sprayed starting fluid by the intake and it picked up idle speed. So we ordered the gasket; I put it on and started it up. It runs great. I was happy. Since I fixed it it runs like it was brand new.
