This Truck must have been built on a Monday because the very basic expectations I've learned of Nissan are gone. I got it new, the first
year I had to get the front drive shaft replaced. Six months after it was replaced, it needed to be fixed again with an "updated" part. At
that time (14K miles) I was told my brakes were shot all around, rotors and everything and it would cost over $800 to fix. On a one year old
truck with low miles? Certainly it's under warranty - nope, brakes only covered for 10K miles - I've owned 30 vehicles in my life time NEVER
had brakes go that bad that fast, certainly it's a flaw in the workmanship or design, because I could not accept an $800 bill on a vehicle I've
personally put every mile on the odometer and no out of the ordinary driving either. I find it very hard to accept I could have done anything
to completely ruin all 4 rotors and brake pads in one year!?? Luckily I know how to do that work myself, still wasn't happy to need brakes that
soon, and each 18 months or so since then I need to replace the pads. Not a good experience, of all cars I've owned never seen this, and this
was my 4th Nissan, 2nd New One, and most likely will be my last.
Several squeeks and rattles throughout the truck since I got it, had to return it to dealer for the air bag sensor recall finally after it was
blinking for a year - again still under 20k miles when I owed a fortune still! Now the truck has about 80K miles, I've been informed it's
entirely out of any warranty - engine/powertrain only covered till 60k miles - THAT should tell you how confident Nissan is in their product and
I wish I paid attention but again I've been a loyal Nissan customer for 20 years. This nearly $30K truck I bought brand new and has slowly
fallen apart since I drove away. Now I learn there is a design flaw in another part - the transmission - apparently the engine coolant and
transmission fluid can mix, and I don't care what anyone tells you this is NOT because of anything the owner or driver did with the truck. For
something like that to happen, well under 100K miles on a fairly new vehicle with only one owner - it is POOR workmanship! Yet - we owners are
stuck with a crappy product, many of us still owe money on our loans but only get to look at the broken down product while struggling to make
the payment now taht we have to find ANOTHER mode of transportation as well, while continuing to waste over $500 per month to keep my own credit
in good standing. I was offered $4000 from a dealer for my broken down 2005 Frontier Crew Cab SE which I owe just under $10K on...obviously no
deal could be made on a different car when you take a $6000 loss on a TRUCK with average mileage??? Insane.
DO NOT BUY A 2005 FRONTIER!!
