Notes: Radiators are still cracking, leaking coolant and destroying transmissions. Which is a shame when you consider that otherwise, this would be a great small pickup truck.

2006 Nissan Frontier Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 222007

Frontier 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 859 miles


I purchased a 2006 Nissan Frontier SE P/U in December 2006. The problem is that the brake pedal seems to have little resistance, brake pedal and accelerator in a position to press both at the same time. Dealer states that there is not a fix for this issue. Nissan has redesigned the system for 2007 to fix this problem. However they refuse to correct this potential safety issue for 2006.

problem #1

Frontier 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 400 miles
On several occasions I have hit various items due to the fact that the gas and break peddle are to close to each other, the truck jumps uncontrollably as you press the brake and the gas down simultaneously. I feel this is a dangerous design defect.
