1997 Nissan Hardbody Pickup XE 4 cylinder from North America
Great truck. 115,000 miles, no major problems.
Changed timing chain, hoses, belts at 100,000 miles.
Change oil ever 3,000 miles.
Truck developed an annoying rattle under horn/air bag. After a month of taking apart the steering column twice, I have figured it out. It seems that the frame under the horn/air bag was rubbing on the air bag housing ever so slightly. The vibration from the road and the motor at idle would make a ticking sound. Made some rubber covers for the housing out of an old inner tube, and no more rattle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
