Purchased 4 cylinder Frontier in November 07 after owning 2 small engine Tacomas and have been pleasantly surprised ever since. I enjoy the improved mileage, power,comfort and style but am most impressed with the height of cab and the improved command of road vision without driving a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Handling will improve after a few months of solid driving as will realization that gas and brake pedals are close together. Retired, Valpo, IN
The Frontier Nissan PickUp is a sweet little truck, simplicity is the foundation for the design. It adapts well from a small or petite driver to a big girl like me. I can slide the seat all the way back and have plenty of room for my long legs, and good head room too. It is tall enough so that coming out of a full-sized SUV I don't have to feel like I was demoted to a skateboard as in other makes that I test drove. The doors and handles feel solid and sturdy so I am not afraid of damaging the door mechanism if a passenger slams the door when they exit. There is enough room behind the seat for groceries or a pet. The instruments are easy to read and cab lighting is adequate. MPG is reasonable for the engine size. There are gauges so I don't have to rely on "idiot lights" to tell me when something is wrong when it is too late to address the problem. I like the return to a stripped down basic package with a 5 spd manual transmission. I feel like I am actually driving again and not just steering and pushing on the gas like a child. It is the difference between a "point and shoot" camera and a real camera that one can operate with skill. I love my little pick-up.
Overall a nice mid-sized truck. I'm over 6ft tall and over 200 lbs. Nissan redesigned the Frontier in 06 and made the cab larger. I have plenty of head, shoulder and leg room. No problem at all shifting gears. I have the extended cab and the jump seats are good for small children, but nothing larger. No issue though since extra seating was not a priority. I did want extra storage in the cab so the extended cab works out well. The 4x4 performed very well in the snow & ice this winter. Glad I had the 4x4 option. Gas mileage is 17/21. Not bad for a V6 4x4. I especially like the 6th gear; RPMs are around 2200 at 70 mph. Body style plus pin-striping looks very good. Silver color doesn't show dirt. My neighbors thought I bought a brand new truck. They were shocked to find out it was 4 years old. Mileage is just over 58000 and the truck runs extremely well and is very tight. Love it.
