- Ronald Partekel, 2010 Nissan Frontier

This had been a lease so the title was clear.

The Frontier has extra room since it is extended cab and also has the great doors to get into the back. It is not a full size and that is good for me. It has a 6ft bed with liner. It is easy to drive and does have pretty good gas mileage. I have not taken it up the rockies but climbing the Sierras it has done as I expected it to. Great small PU.

Pros

  • Interior Space: It is quieter than my old PU
  • Ride and Handling: Very easy to handle on curve and straight way.
  • Styling: Looks great.

- Delores Senior, 2012 Nissan Frontier

Love this truck!!! CarMax Rocks!!!

It's the top of the line Frontier...Leather, heated seats, 4 full doors w/ seating for 5, great stereo, sun roof, luggage rack, spray-in bed liner & cover, etc... I've owned two King Cab Frontiers since 1981...they're reliable and stand up to a beating. The odometer broke at 20050 miles on the first one and I still drove it 1 1/2 hours each way, five days/week for two more years after & it was till running great when I sold it two years later. I bought the 2nd one brand new in 2015 and it was still in great shape when I traded it for the 2019 two months ago.

Pros

  • Reliability: I love everything about it
  • Cargo Space: All good

Cons

  • Interior Space: My 6'5 son is a bit cramped in the passenger seat BUT I didn't buy it for him. LOL!
