I have been reading all of the responses here online... Here goes my story...
I wanted the SE-V6 Crew Cab 4X2 with the Luggage Rack... I found out that Nissan was retooling the roof because the roof was not designed to hold weight and they were caving it in... So.. I would have to wait till Oct-Nov to get the right truck. The ones out right now will not be able to have the Luggage Rack installed... I waited and waited but could not take it any longer....
I have been reading on this chat board that the dealers were not willing to go down from the MSRP.. Well, I found out the opposite..
I basically played three dealers in my area off on another for the sale... One would not budge... One did and he started a bidding war with the other. The one that would not budge suddenly did by matching my lowest offer. The lowest offer came down $100 to beat everyone else...
So here is what I got:
Nissan 2000 Frontier Crew Cab SE-V6 4X2
Bedliner Over the Rail
Destination Charge of $520
I think I did good! You guys tell me!

If you are at all close to Canada and dont mind your speedo reading in KM instead of miles, go there. I paid $21,930 + (ugh) 6% tax - total was $23256. Works for me, gonna pick it up tomorrow!

I also saw two Chevy s10 crew cabs, not extended cabs but actually FOUR REAL DOORS for approx. $28,000 retail. Why haven't we heard anything about these? They look like a factory job but may be just a dealer conversion.

saw 4-door s-10 at a dealer near chicago. they had 3, all were conversions. also very ugly!

I've been considering a 00 CC for months now. I visited our local dealer and sat in the back seat. My opinion is that it's essentially worthless, especially for adults. The seatback was far too vertical and there was NO legroom! I'm going to wait and see what the Ford Explorer Sport Trac is like. I've read that they're going to soften the suspension on it, so it'll be more car-like. I just hope it has more leg room for the back seat.

Edmunds has a great right up about the Nissan crew cab. Some good things to say some bad. Price was high according to them, this because of the inital hype. Ford is coming out with a crew cab in 2000 sometime. It will have a 200HP/245ftlb of torque V6. Dodge is supposed to be coming out with a crew cab sometime this fall. Chevy is also behind the curve and probably won't see a crew cab for sometime in the S-10 form.

I drove one of the Nissan 4drs in Saudi Arabia and loved it. Now when they finally get the the US, the back seats are much too small! I think Nissan made a design error with this truck.

Well I finally bought my Frontier CC 2000 se 4x4
power package,sport package. I wanted the roof rack included in the deal. Dealer said "no problem" as soon as they get them in they will call me. Now I find out the cc's on the road don't have the support to hold the roof rack. I paid for it all ready. What am I to do? Also my stirring wheel rattles in the middle where the airbag and the horn is. Does anyone else have this problem?

I bought my truck last month, and some have asked me to post pictures. I finally got around to it. A few were taken at my favorite airport! (Ohio State Univ airport in Columbus)
