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.

  • 36,000 miles
We purchased a used 2006 Nissan Frontier with nismo package that had 32,000 miles on it. By the time it had 36,000 miles, the truck seized on the highway. We had it looked at and was told all of the oil had leaked out of the transfer case and the bearings/seals were broken. Also, that several of the transfer case bolts were missing before it was taken apart for inspection. After waiting 3 weeks for the parts to come in, we purchased new tires. The tire pressure light did not reset on the dash board and still tells us the air pressure needs to be checked even though we paid for nitrogen that supposedly keeps the air pressure constant.
