I swear - this is the deadest site on the web - I own a Trooper which they don't even make any more and we chat our heads off.
But to answer your question my 02 4X4 KC/SC with auto gets 16.4 mpg for my usual weekly driving - should do 18 or so on highway - comparable to almost any V6 4X4 I have driven/owned. Quality compared to various Tahoes, Toyotas, Jeeps is certainly at the top end. First Tahoe the radiator failed at 70K. Second Tahoe the tranmnission went south at 40K. The Jeep Wrangler had various electrical problems. The Toyotas Truck, Camry, Celica were error free. This vehicle has 36k miles on it and so far the only issue I had was the leaky rear cab mounted break/backup light - which was replaced. No rattles - very tight structure - my only concern is the super charger -but so far its fine. Enjoy your new ride.

On second thought Bstone 3 is right - this is the deadest site on the web, considering the number of Nissan trucks on the road. And why is this forum only on crew cab trucks? What about king cab trucks? And regular cab trucks?

I have a suggestion. Ask the host to rename this forum to something that accomodates all discussions on Nissan Frontier trucks.

There is a new site called Nissan pickup owners hangout. So far there is one post by the host. I assume that this site is for all Nissan truck owners, not just Frontiers. I have a 95 king cab SE V6 4X4 hardbody truck.

I agree - kill the Crew Cab title and just call it Nissan Frontier Trucks - might invite some new and needed members.
#756 of 799 *** PROBLEM: Heater / AC FAN ***
Sep 29, 2003 (10:27 am)
I have a 2000 Frontier Crew Cab. Yesterday, the AC / Heater Fan stopped working in all settings...except the highest. As you all know, the settings are 0,1,2,3,4 with 0 being off. Only position 4 (high) works now. Has anyone had a similar problem, or have any insight into this?
I'd like to try to get some feedback before I take it in to have it looked at. Thanks.

Heard of this happening before in all sorts of different cars. Usually it mean the switch has gone south and needs replacement. Friends Ranger just did it and it cost him $300 because of the labor involved - removing the dash - to get to the $5 switch - maybe Frontier is easier. Good Luck

The symptoms are exactly those of a failed blower motor resistor. You need to replace the resistor in my opinion. I have seen this failure mode on other vehicles. The switch is most likely not defective because you have the highest speed.
#759 of 799 Where is this resistor

If this should happen to me someday just where is that motor resistor at?
