2012 NISSAN FRONTIER
I bought a used 2012 Frontier recently? the main attractions were the price, the very low miles (about 7,000 miles) and all the extra stuff that had been put on it by the previous owner. All these things made it a great buy. It?s a very nice truck to drive?.my only complaints are that I wish the gas mileage was a bit better, the interior (even with the V value package) is relatively sparse, it does not have as tight a turning radius as I think it should and there are some basics that would be nice to have. Since it has so few miles on it, I can?t comment on any longer term maintenance items.
2002 NISSAN FRONTIER
The Nissan is very stable and maneuverable in traffic, turning, and parking. However, be sure to glance through the very detailed owner/driver manual with the vehicle or online before purchase to be aware of the many details of its operation. It took awhile for me to transition from domestic brands of pickup truck.
2003 NISSAN FRONTIER
This truck had zero guts when trying to climb a hill. On the freeway, it was very loud in the cabin. If I was cruising at 70mph and needed to climb an incline, my speed would drop to 55mph even if I had my foot on the gas pedal to the literal floor. The best gas mileage I ever got was just over 17mpg, which is awful. I couldn't believe how bad it was. So, within 2 weeks of buying it, I sold it and bought a full-size truck again.
2006 NISSAN FRONTIER
This is an awesome vehicle. Very comfortable. Handles great for a pick up truck. Gas mileage could be better, but it's so impressive n every other way that I can easily put up with only 20 mpg.
2012 NISSAN FRONTIER
2012 Nissan Frontier SV. Crew Cab V6. Bought used with 47K miles on it, put another 8k miles so far. This is my daily driver. Solid mid-size truck and seems dependable, but I haven't driven it long enough to say for sure. I'll get back to you after I clock 150,000 miles. It's converted me from GMC and compares favorably against the GMC Canyon/Chevrolet Colorado.
2012 NISSAN FRONTIER
Bought this truck for the 4 wheel drive and because needed the crew cab for the extra room to fit a car seat in. I have the PRO 4-X model and the traction control and limited slip features are the best. Ride quality feels tight and heavy on the road. Does great in the snow!
2009 NISSAN FRONTIER
I bought it as a decent gas milage rig for light towing and trash runs. I've towed quite a bit from cars to boats and love how it tows besides it's horrid steering range.
2010 NISSAN FRONTIER
Nice mid-size truck. Has plenty of room and plenty of pep under the hood. Doors really swing wide. But now adjusted myself. Family loves it. And my wife enjoys driving in it. Crew cab has the feel of a car.

Used Nissan Frontier Information
In 1998, the Frontier was introduced as a compact pickup truck, but over the years it has evolved into a mid-sized pickup. Therefore, earlier versions of the Frontier are perfect for someone that needs the storage and functionality of a truck but doesn't need to regularly tow heavy items. Look for newer used models if you want an upgraded capacity for hauling.
The Nissan Frontier comes in a wide variety of sizes to fit your needs. More specifically, you can find several iterations of first generation used Frontiers for sale with lengths ranging from 184.3 inches (Regular Cab) all the way up to 217.8 inches (Crew Cab Long Bed). Both two- and four-wheel options are available in every generation of this enduring line of trucks.
Second generation Nissan Frontiers, model years 2005 through 2014, are larger than their predecessors. For this reason the newer generation could be considered more of a mid-size rather than compact truck. For example, the wheelbase of the first generation Regular Cab was 104.3 inches, while the second generation wheelbase extended to 125.9 inches. This makes a big difference if you are planning on consistently hauling large loads in the bed of your truck. The second generation Frontier also received significant updates both to the look and functionality of the truck. Side mirrors now fold in, the bumpers are more round and new alloy wheels provide a smoother, more stylish look. Inside the cab, simple controls make it easy to use and technology improvements such as climate control, navigation, and built-in Bluetooth hands-free cell phone compatibility make driving the Frontier more enjoyable than ever.
The Frontier is one of the safer pickup trucks on the market, especially more recent model years. The National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the 2010 Nissan Frontier the highest safety rating for side-impact, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 2011 Frontier the highest ratings across front, side and roof categories. The third and current generation of this pickup debuts in model year 2015.
