#125 of 799 Got my Crew Cab yesterday!
Aug 20, 1999 (7:18 pm)
I ordered a 2000 Nissan Frontier on the Carsdirect
web site last Tuesday. They had a hard time
finding a truck for me, and then the perfect truck
rolled off the semi at a local dealer this week. I
emailed my rep at carsdirect and told him about
it....yesterday he called me to get a little more
info on the truck and then he called the dealer.
The dealer called me and said, "come pick it up!"
I got the truck for invoice + 2.9%. That includes
the $500 they took off my bill because it took them
nine days instead of seven. When I got into the
truck to drive it home, I glanced down at the
odometer. The total mileage was....4. Life is
#127 of 799 Rear windows go ALL the way down...
Aug 22, 1999 (5:18 am)
I just got my Crew Cab on Thursday, and I've noticed something interesting....you can roll the rear windows all the way down, instead of halfway or so like every other four-door vehicle I've seen. So if you have kids or pets, your crew cab should have power windows, so you can lock them from the drivers seat and then they won't jump out.....

Looking very seriously at a Frontier right now, They are priced at about $24,000 loaded, up here. Seems like a great deal, I have compared and compared some more. Seems like the best deal. I have never owned a Nissan, always Toyota till last week. Any advice would be welcome.
#129 of 799 My new crewcab!

I just purchased a SE 4x2 with the power package. All totaled, tax (7% ouch), tag, etc...$21,800 from Sutherlin in Marietta, GA. I was extremely pleased with the speed and service of the deal. I called around to all the Nissan dealers around ATL. I probably could have saved an additional few hundred bucks, but they had the color I wanted and they were easy to get to.
Happy hunting, Nik

#131 of 799 Used 1998 XE Nissan
Aug 30, 1999 (6:15 pm)
I just bought a used 1998 Nissan XE truck 5sp with 13k miles for $13k. I had to get rid of my 1985 Toyota pickup. Man, what a difference! When I am on the freeway I am constantly looking at the speedometer so I can keep it under 70mph. I was a little nervous about dirving a stick shift, becaue I have not used a stick in over two years. I am pleased to report that the transmission is very smooth and the acceleration is awesome - of course I am comparing it to a 1985 toyota p.u. However, I did test drive a new 1999 Mazda Protege and Toyota Corolla. The Nissan XE blew them both off the road and it looks so good in my drive way.
#132 of 799 Having trouble finding one?

Just call Nissan themselves, customer service can look at trucks coming off the line, before dealers know. And if the dealer says they can't order one from the factory...the're full of it! Nissan told me they sure can(for a little extra). Still looking for my SE CC 4x4, stay tuned, Nissan will call me back in about 4 business days. Later.

Just let anyone who is interested to know, the
Nissan Frontier Crew Cab is not a new Nissan vehicle, it has been sold in Japan, Australia, Africa, South America and Europe for years under the name Navara. It also was sold under the name Datsun for years as well. Don't think that Datsun/Nissan is alone with a Compact Crew Cab, Toyota has had an identical truck as well that they've sold everywhere, but in the US. I found out all of this while Nissan was baiting us on their Website and wouldn't give us details on the Crew Cab, so I visited all of their websites around the globe and eventually got a brochure from Australia months before any dealer near me knew anything about the Crew Cab. As it is I placed a deposit on a Nissan Crew Cab XE 4X4 two months ago and won't have my truck for at least another month due to the fact I want the color green, I'm getting a little frisky waiting for it, it's the perfect upgrade from my 13 year old Acura 4 dr hatchback.
