And the beat goes on as Sonny and Cher sang. Nissan replaced the compressor on my 09 Frontier AC yesterday. Took about three hours. I drove off and made an extended drive to my sons. Had dinner and drove the 100 miles home. The AC froze up again at the approx 60 mile mark. Called the dealership this AM and have another appointment for Monday morning. Whoopee. Appointment number five. This is getting ridiculous but I'll keep posting developments in this "Never ending story."

Ever considered going to another dealer? Don't make much sense to return to an incompetent service department, that is, assuming you value your time.

It isn't the dealership, it is Nissan North America. Apparently the dealer cannot maintain a large stock list of parts anymore and also must contact Nissan NA for guidance on what to do for warranty service. Sort of like a health care plan. At least that is how they explained it to me. Took the truck in today. They called Nissan who said to order the remaining parts, expansion valve and sensor, which are the only things that have not been replaced. I am confident this time it will fix it as I will have a complete new AC system. Only six visits required!

When you state,
"The AC froze up again at the approx 60 mile mark."
What exactly happens to freeze up?

I'm not an auto mechanic so bear with me; after driving about 60 miles the air coming out of the vents begins to lessen in volume and the coolness becomes luke warm then matching outside air temperature. When this has happened I have stopped, opened the hood and the air conditioning system tubes/pipes are covered with frost. That is what is taking place when I say it is freezing up. Do you have a suggestion?

There are basically three reasons why your unit would freeze up.
-Ambient temperature too low
My guess would be the first one. You probably have a leak somewhere that they can't find so they keep changing parts and hopefully will eventually solve the problem. Not exactly the most efficient way.

It is now Monday. Last Friday the dealership put the last piece, the expansion valve, on my 09 Frontier to fix my freezing AC problem. I've deliberately driven over 300 miles this past weekend to test the system. So far so good. After six visits to the dealership and working with Nissan North America my system now seems to be functioning perfectly. Maybe the sixth time is a charm and hopefully this will be my last post on this subject.

My 2006 Frontier tailgate latch has stopped working. Is this hard to fix for a do-it-yourselfer?

Nope. Just open it up and look inside to see where it disconnected.
#455 of 485 Nissan 2006 frontier worst trucks ever?
Aug 02, 2009 (8:10 pm)
Exhaust fell off, a/c broke, steering wheel almost came completely off, now gas gauge doesn't work??? All this and more at 38,000 miles, right when the warranty ended. By far the worst truck I ever owned (I 've had 2 ford rangers, ford f-150, toyota tacoma, nissan frontier, chevy s10) S10 and nissan are tied for worst!!!! Ford ranger amazingly reliable low maintenance truck. Thousands of complaints about the fuel level sensor err code P0643, yet no recall??????? I've had 3 recalls already. This truck sucks, what a dissappointment.
