#518 of 799 More Hot Air
Apr 24, 2001 (9:52 pm)
I too have noticed the "hot air" issue in my 2000 CC. This issue was discussed several months ago on the Yahoo Frontier clubhouse. The cause seems to be that the vent intake is routed too close to the catalytic converter, thus the heat exchange raising the temperature of ambient air. Basically a design fault, and one that Nissan probably will do nothing about. Just a minor inconvienence, but still a great truck.

I have been waiting for the "hot air" thing to occur. If its doing it, I haven't noticed it....
No complaints from me so far....wish it had a coin holder and the cupholders were wider...that's about it, so far!

Yeah, I did pull them out...it still wasn't wide enough...frankly, if this is all I have to complain about, I am happy!
#522 of 799 What hot air?
Apr 27, 2001 (3:38 pm)
I have had my 01CC for about 8 monthe and 8K miles. Have been reading about the hot air through the vent/design flaw problem? Try as i may,I have not been able to detect this problem in my truck, but it could be just me not being sensitive enough. So I tried the ultimate test: The outside temp was 72, i set the fan switch to 3, AC switch off, REC switch off, Temp knob to full cold, Flow control knob to come out half between vent and floor. Took a ride with my wife in the truck. After 10 minutes she says; shut off that #*# cold air... Makes me wonder if there is a mechanical problem like a door not closing all the way when the temp control selector is moved to full cold. Just a thought. I'm old enough to know what it's like to drive a vehicle in the south with no AC. All four windows down and the fan on high, not much help. in fact it's better not to have the fan on at all, just makes noise.

JKIDD2, Your problem can be easylly fix, get smaller cup holders or custom your cup holders to your needs. Because no cuphloders would be good for you, even if you buy another truck. make sure your cup is design for car use not just home use

For several months (maybe a year) now, my seat has been stuck (00 Crew Cab). I was just about out of warrenty so I called the dealer and he said "it's coins stuck in the track, and it's not covered" he went on to say that they would charge $80 to fix it, but he said just take the seat out, and remove the coins, and that should be it. Anyway, I am OK with the seat where it is, but my son starts driving soon, and I'll need to get the change out for that.
Did you remove the seat, or could you get the coins out without removing the seat?

I own a 2001 Frontier Crewcab SE with 5 SP Manual.
I put 1,700 miles on it now but I never exeprienced any hot air...Kind of surprise me when every body else has this problem...

Not every one. I don't have it either.
