I have about 1100 miles on the truck so far and am very pleased. The truck is just what I expected. Quality appears excellent. Interior ride and feel is perfect for me.
I am averaging 16.5 mpg, mix of city and highway. I knew going in the mileage was not a strong point and am not dissappointed but hope that as the truck breaks in, I will get better.
I am surprised at how strong the engine is. I also read reviews about a large turning circle, but I have not found this to be a problem at all.
One reason I purchased the 2012 (rather than wait for a redesign) was because the Frontier was rated so high and the design has been around for a while. Tried and true, so I expect few problems. Time will tell...
2012 Nissan FrontierAndrew Olson - COLORADO SPRINGS, CO01/09/2017
Car is Good Looking, Drives Great,
Con: Not very good Gas Mileage.
I love this truck. It has that solid bulletproof feel to it that inspires confidence. I am a single guy so I was surprised at the new interest from women driving this truck. :-)
Gas mileage is very good. The sticker says a max of 19 but I've been getting 20 to 20.5 on the highway. Everything about it works perfectly. I got the extended bed which I think looks better but the extra length must be factored in when parking. It is a long truck and it is hard to estimate where the end is. I'm thinking of adding a rear view camera if available. Also wish it had come with the towing hitch installed, but that was my choice. Other models have that. I'll be adding that too.
The engine is powerful and has just a touch of a rumble to the exhaust that sounds good. Very good acceleration when you need it. Trying not to do much of that since still near the break-in period.
I usually don't like cloth seats but these are nice. Lots of holes in the fabric so it breathes and does not stick to your clothes.
One of my favorites things about the truck is the sound system. Even though not the high end Fosdick option, it sounds great and the XM sound quality is really great. Plus all the options on XM are great to have. I kept up with the Olympics and Baseball. Love going out of town and keeping the same stations.
I got the White color which looks really sharp if you keep it clean. I immediately applied an acrylic sealant which is keeping it looking great and easy to clean. Overall I couldn't happier with this purchase. I plan to keep this truck a very long time.
