Sun Visor allows sun through on left side of windshield. Terrible design and dangerous. Transmission slips and thuds occasionally. In fact just infrequent enough that the Nissan dealership can't seem to pinpoint the trouble. Even after replacing control parts.
Drives very smoothly but at the same time it handles like a real truck should. Going off road is flawless, not to mention a good time. Its a truck that does that it's meant to do; drive like a car on the highway but a rugged steel machine on the dirt. You will have fun driving this truck.
2008 Nissan Frontier SE Crew Cab 4x4
2008 Nissan FrontierCosmo - Rocklin, CA09/08/2009
Overall I like this vehicle very much. I should qualify the 3 on Quality, however. I gave it a three because the interior is made of cheap plastics and the sound system has much to be desired. The exterior, drivetrain is definately a 4 - 5 on quality. Overall the ride on the SE is smooth and quiet. One thing, though, is when the crewcab seats are put up to reveal the storage, there is some noticable road noise. The crewcab version has a very short bed. Be sure to measure it to be sure it meets your needs. I bought this truck so that I could cart my dogs and mountain bike at the same time. Most mountain bikes would fit, but mine is a 29er so it's wheel-base is longer then average and I have to mount the bike at an angle.
