Great vehicle Bought used 5 years ago

I bought this vehicle used 5 years ago with 168,000 miles on it! I have added 100,000 miles to that. Vehicle is reliable, rugged and dependable. the V-6 4 Liter has plenty of get up and go! Tows a Pop Up Trailer with ease. short bed but takes a good cargo load no problems. Only complaint I have is the radio reception/sensitivity is poor.

Nissan Frontiers produced between 2000 and 2007

Unknown to me, the Nissan line of Frontiers, Acuras and one other were manufactured with a flaw in the radiator line during the above years. I suffered the leak of anti freeze into the transmission as did many others, after 10 years of ownership. This issue with the radiator and transmission marked the beginning of repair after repair; the search for the source of a rough idle cost thousands, first through the boots and coils, then through a spark plug change, and finally, after all that, the discovery that a fuel injector was faulty. Then the faulty fuel injector had dumped massive amounts of carbon into the cat converters, mucking them all, and at least another thousand to change those out. The Frontier still runs, as testified to by Mr. Scott. But the engine light never goes out, constantly indicating low efficiency in the left bank (cat). I have invested a lot in the truck and it is now my cross to bear. Had I known this would be an ongoing thing, I would have traded the truck after the radiator replacement and transmission rebuild cost. But it ran for 10 years with an amazing lack of problems, and we don't have crystal balls.

Great truck with a few drawbacks

I have had very good luck with his truck with a few drawbacks. I bought it with 85K miles and now have 142K. First the notorious transmission fluid engine coolant cross contamination. My truck didn't experience this problem, thank god, but I did keep an eye on it just in case. I have bypassed the transmission cooler in the radiator that causes this problem so I won't have to worry about it any longer. It still has a big external cooler that seems to do the job without the radiator cooler. I am disappointed with Nissan for not doing more to warranty this problem that many people have had which leads to a VERY expensive transmission repair. Also there is a fuel quantity sender that is a problem with this truck. Nissan also knows that this is a problem but won't warranty it. It is a very capable 4X4 with a powerful engine for its class, decent ride and strongly built. I have hauled heavy loads, trailer'ed cars etc with great results. Very good mid sized truck.
