2001 Nissan Frontier Owner Comments

problem #3

Jun 252010


  • 125,000 miles


Was driving in Tennessee on highway 81.I found I was having trouble getting the speed up going to the top of the hills, the next day we found the transmission was a little low and got transmission fluid. Now we are having other problems. We brought it to Nissan to have it tested, and they give us well we'll change the fluid and may be that will help. Or it could be this or that or something else. I'm afraid they are going to nickel and dime me to death.
