1995 Nissan Hardbody Pickup XE 2.4 from North America
Timex, keeps on ticking, a reliable friend
Speed sensor seal caused tranny to leak; had to get new speed sensor and the tranny refilled for 300.00.
Mid-pipe on exhaust leaked, so replaced and new exhaust hangars.
This truck was a replacement for a 94 that rusted thru on the frame. The frame on this 95 is solid. I've undercoated it and removed scale rust.
I drive 40 miles a day, and the truck performs like a top.
I wish I had A/C, but the sliding rear window makes a huge difference, as does the power steering compared to the 94. I plan to add factory A/C from a wrecked Nissan at a Pick and Pull.
Gas mileage is variable; with some city and highway, I manage about 24 miles to the gallon. Worth keeping on that alone.
Truck's paint job has held up well. I keep it waxed. I've added chrome wheels from a wrecked truck and it looks just that much better. I've added a cap to it for foul weather usage.
Miles are extremely low for a 13 year old truck; plan to keep it as long as possible.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I inherited this 1995 4 x 4 from my Mom after my step Dad passed away with him being the original buyer. It only had 64,000 miles, and with A/C and cruise control... it was sweet indeed.
Now 7 years later, and 120,000 I've added to the mileage; I haven't had any problems. It's been stolen twice and recovered -- all I've had to replace was a window and a stereo. I live on the coast -- so I've been diligent with waxing... and only now have just found one small rust spot near the bottom of the door hinge. It's been economical and a pleasure to own.
