I wasnt so sure on the performance on the frontier. There are a lot of hardware store hose clamps that have a stainless band and a non-stainless bolt. Glad i'm not the only one with this going on. After leasing it, I was sold and bought it outright and Nissan has a lease buy-back program. My advice for you if you are looking into this truck, please consider this to be your next vehicle. We all know the main function of a pickup truck is to load and haul heavy items for a long distance, so is the Nissan Frontier.
Possibly related: Interior lock lever is very stiff to operate. You want an all-stainless clamp. Added some goodies over the years bed cover, vent visors, wrangler seat covers, side step-rails so the truck looks sharp on a daily basis. Truck has 75000 miles on it and Nissan service said it needs a new motor. I wish Nissan had just never put them on in the first place as they already mount the larger shields on the underside of the body. After dealer inspection, it turned out that the tabs that hold the exhaust heat shield to the body of the car had somehow ripped off. It has had only the usual wear tear items go out, by far whole lot less than any of my past vehicles.
Anyone experience the low idle exhaust rattle? It started a few weeks ago. There are a lot of hardware store hose clamps that have a stainless band and a non-stainless bolt. Change your oil, brake pads, and keep truckin'. There really isn't anything bad about the truck. Dealer said a stabilizer was already added to it. At 4k now and slight amber color and the level is exactly when I changed it at 37. At the car repair statistics site CarComplaints.
Turning is responsive and great turn radius. Happy trails folks- stay off the cell phones, use hand's free and drive straight : 4 out of 5 stars by Brew from N. Original review: May 9, 2018 I bought the Nissan Frontier in May 2006. Barely large enough to comfortably accommodate a child. Built at the Nissan F-Alpha platform and as competitor to Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier featured a fully boxed ladder frame and got power from a 4. I'm up to roughly 17,500 miles on it and still love'n it! Take a magnet, make sure that magnet doesn't stick to the clamp or the clamp bolt. Until today, it has been produced through three generations.
The factory clamps are a little weak to begin with. Lots of wind noise but again it's a whale. Lastly being a younger kid the truck made it so easy to put alot of accessories on it. Has an intermittent squeak from the pulley tensioner, only when it's cold and damp it will start the worst annoying squeak and it's quite common and happens at low miles. Not enough room in the back though. Also had gas tank gauge issue where you fill up tank and gauge goes to empty. Rear slide window didn't need, but came with.
Glad i'm not the only one with this going on. Like I had to do. It was factory installed, not aftermarket. Dealership went out of business. Power and Associates Highest Ranked Midsize Pickup in Initial Quality Award and so on.
Loud music makes speakers squeak and work poorly. Basically good only for the two people sitting in the front. The Frontier has a surprisingly spacious crew cab that fits five comfortably, plenty of storage options and a base model with an extended cab. Looks like its going to come off its supports. No pocket behind the passenger seat. After 2 transmissions, overheating issues, numerous electrical problems and 9K in repairs I left it at my mechanic and called the bank to come and get it. They took cheap camera photos and said they refused to fix and not their problem.
When I start the car the noise is pretty loud, but once warm it decreases. I do, and especially in reverse at low speeds 2-5 mph when backing into a garage that catalytic converter or flanges or somethings keeps rattling under the hood. Some say the interior is bland! Original review: June 21, 2018 This Nissan is a very durable, reliable vehicle. Shout out Nationwide-Nissan for helping out! Change your oil, brake pads, and keep truckin'. We found this Frontier quick and nimble with a tolerable ride. Paid two times for Fender Mender to fix and it rusts every other year.
I just cut off the culprits and replaced with hose clamps which have been perfect. Interior feels good for me, little bit of a problem with the speaker trim that's is sticking out on one corner and the rear seat head rest block vision when trying to see in blind spot or backing up, I removed them and box away. We get told something different each time. It is a big step forward compared to the old version. Careful folks, some can only be a small drip and some had out-right gushing of oil if left unattended. I just replaced two more at the rear just before the tailpipe.
I needed a city everyday truck not a work truck. Engine is strong and if Nissan reads this I'ld been happy to have the 2013 Pathfinder's 3. Has had everything in the bed from hay, mulch, quads, spilled beer, crabs, fish and all it takes is a hose and it looks like new again. Update from Sep 21, 2016 : Nissan corporate refunded me the cost of muffler not labor - would not say if they would pay for cost of mid-pipe replacement as the work was not done yet. What's happening is the gasket behind the oil cooler where the oil filter attaches to is defective or too thin as a replacement thicker style needs to be inserted.
