#1252 of 2122 Clutch problem in 2005 Frontier, SE
Aug 24, 2005 (12:31 pm)
does any one out there who sails in the same boat as i do?
i bought a new Nissan Frontier, 2005 in May and after driving only 8k miles the flywheel, clutch disk and clutch covers are gone. Dealer says as it got blue, this is because of over heating and abuse..i have not raced or abused my vehicle.. i have been driving stick since i was 16. i thought these trucks were supposed to be tough, but i was wrong.. i lost my faith in Nissan and this is not going to be with me for more than 3-4 months once i get it fixed.. does any one have the same problem? Customer service at Nissan also do not do any thing exceptional for their cusomers.. i will never buy a nissan in my life.. please let me have your feedback if some one has the same experience to share with...

I coudnt be without one now , ordered it the day I got my truck.. from Century, glad I did too !
It took about 3 weeks, as they were still engeniering it for the new Crew Cab, as
the New Frontier cab hangs over the bed a little , like a Ford Ranger does,
I was aprehensive till I saw it installed, and it looks awesome, and painted the same color as my truck ( Storm Gray) the way it hinges ,, and the way they fit the curves , where the cab hangs over the bed, makes this S kinda line and, it works great, and looks great , sorry I dont have pics ! im on my fourth tank
of gas, and lovin my truck Im glad I got the auto, and im impressed how just one gear spreads the ratios out an d how well it shifts, and smoother than my o3 that I traded in, glad I didnt get the 6 speed manual if theres gonna be ISSUES ............ besides tired of rowin through the gears , but I could see how the revving up thiong could be an asset , if u were slap shiftin and skippin gears
I just like havin one hand free ..............Ive been trying to stay outa the pedal
till ive got 1200 mi breakin and keep it under 4000 Rs but I can see how' it
could be addictive, and I couldnt even begin to complain about gas mileage, If
I were driving like that , I have had my utility trailer hooked up too and It handles , so much better than my 03 CC did I think people learn that their MPG is dictated by theier driving habits, and circumstances, and situations, my sister drives like hell , and then stops like hell, and then complains about the price of gas, but then isnt that what city driving is anyway, heck U could live in smell A where they drive too Kill, or in bumstead, and drive 60 too 100 miles without turning and the only thing really affecting any change in ones MPG is the grade of the hills, or Mountains from here too there .............

yes I had the paint and fabric package done to my truck and it only took about 2 hrs. the other 2 hours is to let the fabric sealant dry before you sit in it.

I think there may be a TSB on this. I have seen this complaint on another forum, so it is a known problem. Mine looked fine after 5 months, ( then I ended up putting a cover on),.

I understand that the 06 Frontier will have a power assisted tailgate. Frontier owners have complained about the weight of the current tailgate. Couldn't get any further info on the 06 from the dealer. They just want to sell you an 05.

Enhancements to the 2006 Frontier include:
· Power Package added for the King Cab XE model – includes Power windows, door locks, outside mirrors, remote keyless entry and cruise control
· Satin chrome ring accent treatment for meter gauges and chrome vent trim standard on NISMO and LE models
· New shift knob design for NISMO manual transmission models
· Standard glove box lock, lamp and damper
· New exterior colors – Red Alert, Red Brawn and Majestic Blue
IMO, they would not have omitted something as significant as a power tailgate. The glovebox lock is useful though.

It's a long shot, but I wonder if the computer is getting an input causing it to think that the engine hasn't warmed up yet? That might cause it to run at higher RPMs and not drop down quickly when you take your foot off the gas. My old Honda did this and it was a pain. But, Frontier would show an error code if there were a problem. I feel for ya -- if my '06 SE CC 6-Speed does likewise, I'll be angry too. I'm buying a 6-Speed for the enjoyment, not to combat the thing.
