Purchased As New
Just picked up my new '09 Frontier after 8+ years with my '01 Frontier S/C Crew 4x4. Both are bright red with black leather (red stitching). They are as close to the same vehicle as possible - just with 8 years separating them.
Two comments: Should have got one with the roof rack and sun roof. I miss both of those options from my '01.
The Rockford Fosgate stereo with Bluetooth and XM radio is worth the money.
I looked at all midsize trucks. This blows away everything except the Toyota Tacoma. It was a difficult call between the Nissan and the Toyota. It just came down to the fact that my '01 Frontier was one of the best vehicles I've ever owned. Decided to try another!
The 4.0L engine will satisfy anyone - plenty of power - and no more whiny supercharger that cut's out when you need it most (towing/heavy loads). (although that was a cool truck).
5 speed auto (no 6 speed manual option on the crew :( in Pro4x trim) shifts very smooth.
Gas mileage is 18 - 19 even around town if you keep your right foot under control... This blows away my '01 that struggled to get 13 (and needed 91 octane).
My only disappointment is the steering. Way too much road feedback. If you hit a pot hole on the highway, you'll know - as the steering wheel get's jiggled in your hands. My '01 was much better in steering feel. Given that gripe, it handles much better overall.
The '09 is much larger inside than my '01 - nice for the family!...read morehide
