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.

Boy I hope your's is just a fluke. I've only had my 6-speed for a few weeks, and have already complained about the electronic throttle control, because the engine tends to race after pushing the clutch in to up shift. I wonder if this is related to your clutch prematurely wearing out. Did you have to pay for it or did Nissans warranty cover it? Good luck

SE KC Storm Gray 6spd. w/Power Pack and Ebay key fob keyless entry among other options. I finally decided to check the fuel mileage at 1547 miles. I averaged 22.3mpg mostly on rural hilly two lane roads. I'm very happy this truck is one nice piece of machinery

Thanks,I went back thru the posts...just missed it somehow.My bad.
I ordered mine today,I can't wait.That is how the 4x4 should look from the factory IMHO....Especially the Nismo
Check out Calmini suspension...They have a 5 inch lift kit coming out any day now.The truck in the pic is similar to your truck(color/CC).I found a source for the billet grille and front prerunner bar on that truck too if anyone is interested.

what is a prerunner bar? I was thinking about a Westin Bull Bar myself. I just went to my dealer to get an oil change and have him check out the lift. He said it doesn't void the warranty. I even asked if I should remove it before the 30,000 mile inspection, he said nothing to worry about.
#1268 of 2122 MPG : reply

Im getting between 19 and 21 mpg, and im checking it the old way, stting my trip meter and checking when filling up, but im still driving like its new, keeping the Rs down below 4000 and a little subdued, after my 1st oil change which is due in about 2 weeks, then can see what 265 horses feels like,
another reason im glad I got the auto trans kinda helps keep it down. but when the speedo goes too a buck forty!!! kinda makes ya wundr,I opted for the horsepower, with this in mind... if this is the truck I end up keeping..
then when its ten years old and getting tired , should still have some ponys left,
and not a lack of power for climbing these mountains, arround here,
thats another thing that might be affecting my MPG is altitude,
here I had to have my bike rejettet for this altitude, and now it runs like a
champ, where befor it was kind like flooded and sluggish , too much gas not enough oxygen, but when i go south from here too like, New Mexico, and drop in elevation, a thousand feet, or two, then it runs like its race day, these new engines with variable induction, and timing technology,
adjusts by it self, for optimum performance, and adjusts for the load,
this new truck with the anti slip option, even adjusts braking for the payload, and some conditions, then locks up any wheel thats lost traction, and even tells U if u got a flat tire, I still say that if u have the Nismo with all the options,
like the on demand locking diff (on a switch) and the hill decent option, (another on demand--switch--, that those options will require some additional energy to function , and another vehicle with out those options and will affect milege a little not a lot but still enough to possibly be as much as 1 too 2 miles per Gal, depending on drivers habits and conditions ....................
#1269 of 2122 General Tires
Aug 26, 2005 (4:04 pm)
I just bought a 2005 Frontier SE King Cab and noticed that the side walls on the General Tires are very lumpy. Has anyone else noticed this. It almost looks like a blister. I had the same thing on tires I bought from BJ's a few years ago and was told that its a result of manufacturing.
