#20 of 49 First Time Posting

Hello....I'm the proud owner of an '02 XE CC 4x4. So far, after 27,000 miles, it's never been in the shop! Unlike my '01 Dakota Sport 4x4 which was in the shop over 15 times. Finally, I filed for Lemon Law & Dodge bought my truck. That's when I switched to the "Final Frontier". I'm looking forward to seeing the new '05 Frontier the Chicago Autoshow in a few weeks. I think w/ the larger engine & overall size, it will give the other midsize p/u's a run for their money.

Troy - I think you will need to visit your local Nissan dealership to have it reprogrammed. I have a '99 Dodge Stratus & my wifes grandfather had the remotes de-activated. The dealer only charged me $35 & did it while I waited. I searched all repair manuals & websites and came up empty handed. You can also purchase another remote at the same time if needed. Good luck!
#24 of 49 2003 Frontier AC and Defroster
Jul 07, 2004 (8:02 am)
I have a 2003 Frontier CC LB 4x4 XE with the 3.3 V6. As in most vehicles when I turn on the defroster, the AC compressor kicks on to help clear the windows. However in this model the the AC compressor will NOT turn off when switched back to vent. The only solution is to turn the fan off, thereby all ventilation, or turn off the engine and turn it back on. Only then will the system return to vent without the AC compressor running. Thinking it was a problem I took to a dealer for service, and he replaced the activator, only to find out this is how the system is intended to work. The TSB says it is to assist keeping the windows clear. That may be OK in the tropics, but it doesn't help in heating the cab during a Nor'easter in January. Does anyone know of a fix to solve this? From the TSB it seems like a problem with 2003 models only. If it is why doesn't Nissan replace it with the 2002 or 2004 actuator? For anybody getting disappointing gas mileage or lack of power, this may be the culprit. Any suggestions would be helpful. Otherwise I have enjoyed the vehicle and look to many years of ownership.
#26 of 49 1998 Frontier 4 Cylinder.....More power
Jul 22, 2004 (5:03 am)
I just installed a K & N air filter on my truck. I also put a 5W-30 weight synthetic AMSOIL in the engine. WOW! more power and I'm sure the engine will last much longer with the AMSOIL. Have any of you did the same? Gas mileage also improved.

Just switched to Amsoil 5W30 & Mobil-1 filter in my 2000 Desert Runner a couple thousand miles ago. I did this more for reliability standpoint, so I'm still using the stock air filter which will filter particles better than K&N. The Amsoil seems to have smoothed the idle even more & added a bit more power. I haven't noticed any increased mileage yet...maybe I will after the synthetic cleans out the engine a bit more.

just bought a 2004 4cyl with 5speed. never had a truck before, or a nissan for that matter. really searched high and low for small trucks for a bout six months. this one finally won me over. tell me about yours, the MPG i can expect, any quality aftermarket items that really have proven themselves to be worthwhile, and any thing else that you think improtant. i'd liek to stay in touch with some frontier owners about our trucks. mine has 74 miles on it. keep in touch through : gmillioneyahoo.com keep on truckin

found any useful ways to make the front bucket seats ride less like a pickup on a washboard road.
