oooh, they're nice. there's already a couple running around, and they sound mean right off the lot.

i really wanted one, but the wife slapped my head and told me i have even less chance of getting one of these as i have getting a dually.

they're really wide, though- they had to widen the truck to get more suspension travel, so they're actually as wide as dually all the way down (that's damn wide).

Well, I still haven't bought a truck yet. It seems my Mazda knows I want to get rid of it, so it's being well-behaved right now. It's been solid and seems to run better than ever. The only real reason I don't like it is because it always feels like it's ready to fall apart -- but like I said, it runs like a champ now. *shrug*

Anyway, I was leaning toward an older Tacoma. I figure one day, I'm gonna get irritated with my truck again and at that point, I'll get a 2001-2004 Tacoma. But I just had my car in for service, and Nissan gave me a 2011 Frontier Crew Cab for a loaner. I had it for two days and ran several errands in it. Man, it was a nice truck. The wife and I really liked it.

i know its not a truck they share the same motor, v6 vq motor but i know they have a history of noisy timing chains which dealers say is a faulty timing chain requiring replacement...also a lot of their FWD vehicles ive changed so many motor mounts in a newer car then any other vehicle... its like way to common problem ...also they have a big cam/crank sensor problem ive notice and knock sensor..almost every fwd car with a check engine like will have either codes....

but i think the frontiers are well built trucks perfect size for people not looking for a full size truck and priced right
