Yesterday morning I picked up a 2002 Nissan
Frontier Crew Cab SC 4x4 Longbed. Could not find
one in my home state of CT. Went to six local dealers and the best I could do was invoice &
$500 to pull one out of N.Y. state. First off,
how are current owners doing on gas mileage ?
Secondly , in the glove box was an empty blister
package of Nissan wheel lock nuts , yet there
were not any installed on the vehicle. I asked my
local dealer if they came with the vehicle and he
said he had no idea , it was the 1st SC he has sold ( only has had the brand for 2 months ).
Was this package garbage from the NY dealer
or did someone take some locking wheel nuts
that I am entitled to ?

show today. A power convertible top that opens between the rook rack. Looks cool but maybe not too useful here in Iowa. California?

That is an extremely active board. This board is kind of dead around here.
#643 of 799 Looking into buy CC SE 4X4
Feb 27, 2002 (2:11 pm)
Hey does anyone know what is the best deal that I can get for a 2002 CC SE 4X4 here in san diego CA. I was looking at carsdirect.com it came out to be a little under 24K. Is that the going price for this vehicle?

#645 of 799 My experience.....
Mar 18, 2002 (5:53 pm)
I got my 2001 Frontier SE Crew Cab 4x4 14 months ago...here's my experience...
Don't get me wrong, I love the way it looks, and the in-dash cd changer and wheel controls are nice, but....
Gas mileage really sucks! I just took a long across state trip...managed only 300 miles on the highway before I was almost out of gas...that's only about 15 mpg.....original sticker said 19!
The power isn't as bad as people say.....I'd recommend the naturally aspirated 3.3 over the supercharged SC...it is very noisy and only offers better acceleration at the start.
Little things....the cloth seats stain very easily, the paint scratches very easily, and the backseat is small for anyone around 6 feet tall. Also, as someone earlier posted...small pebbles DO get stuck between the front fender flares and the fender...very annoying. Finally, the General Grabber AW tires that came with mine are wearing very quickly. 26k miles and they need to be replaced soon.
Consumer reports rated the Frontier last among small crew cabs, their arguments were harsh ride and lack of power..decide for yourself. Good luck!
#646 of 799 Starting Problems on Nissan 2002 Crew
Apr 04, 2002 (5:32 am)
Is anyone else experiencing starting problems with their Frontier? I just purchased a 2002 XE Crew and twice I have had it start very sluggishly. I think I have connected this problem right after I have filled it up with gas. Does air get into the fuel systems somehow? Any help is appreciated. ONce it starts, it runs fine.
#647 of 799 Starting Problems and others
Apr 08, 2002 (5:07 pm)
My 2001 SE Crew Cab 4x4 has failed to start twice in the past 2 weeks. I've owned it 14 months, no problems to complain about except the slightly underpowered engine and bad gas mileage...but when this happened I just turned the key and nothing happened. I waited a few seconds and tried again, and the engine started. Sounds like something electrical to me.
Also, has anybody noticed if their steering wheel will pull slightly back towards the driver? I accidently pulled back on mine, and it moved towards me a little, not the whole steering column, just the wheel. Kinda scary....
