I purchased one with my 2006 Frontier. I bought it from the dealer here in So. Cal and I have had nothing but problems with it.
The latches are very poor design.
It leaks water, just the dew in the morning will cause it to leak.
The hinge that holds the top cover on has started to break where the spot welds are and I have had to pop rivet it back together.
Save your self $500.00 bucks and go buy something else.
I have been trying to get some satisfaction from the dealer and they are talking to Nissan, but not to me.

I think this is a common occurance on vehicles when they are cold. my 93 ford ranger with 4.0 V6
used to do the exact same thing when cold(for a while i was worried and then it went away once warm and eventually forgot about it ). I have heard it on other cars too. So, I would not worry.
#1781 of 2122 Noise problem with open back window.
Jul 06, 2006 (7:10 pm)
I was wondering if anyone experience this. I've just purchased a new 06 Frontier SE crew cab three days ago. So far, I'm pretty happy with it. However, I noticed something today. I was driving down the road cruising around 45 mph. My fiance sitting in the front and my two boys sitting in the back. They decide to open their window. Once the window's opened, we all heard this loud noise. It was loud to the point that I cannot hear the radio and it actually hurt our ear. It's like someone is blowing a tuba next to us. Has anyone experience similar problem? Should I contact the dealer about this?

Per the "tuba" rear window noise, my Frontier does the same as does my wife's Subaru. Nothing is wrong with the truck, nor the Subie. What you're hearing is akin to the bass note noise you hear blowing across the top of an empty soda bottle. If you lower the other rear window, the noise will lessen because the interior air pressure is equalized. I'm just guessing that this happens because many modern vehicles have the side window glass very close to the outer body surface (instead of deep within a window frame) to reduce air turbulence and increase fuel economy. Hope this helps.

I don't get a tapping noise with my '06 SE 4.0L, but I often hear and feel a light bump noise several seconds after startup. It just started doing this at about 1800 Miles and (like yours) does it only when the engine is "cold". As you know, the engine RPMs rocket to what sounds like light speed at start up. I guess we both have to trust that oil is getting topside real quick given the high starting RPMs.

My 2k6 Frontier does the same thing. Yep this is quite normal.Scarey but the engine is supposed to be bullet proof. Time will tell.
#1785 of 2122 Securing a Sliding Bed Extender
Jul 10, 2006 (4:31 pm)
My Frontier CC SE 4.0 is a whopping 3 days old, and I'm liking it a lot. Only problem I see is there is no way to secure the sliding bed extender. Here in L.A., if it can be stolen, it will be stolen. Anyone have an idea for me? I could always fix the rail stops on either side of the extender brackets, but what a pain when it comes time to move it around... Thanks for any ideas you may have...

I have noticed this with my '06 Nismo CC LE model. I sometimes open the rear window to allow my dog to stick her head out. The noise with the one window open is loud and I end up shutting it. I suspect the other poster is correct with his assessment.

You are right that these things can be easily picked off. The only thing I can think of in addition to screwing in the extender stops is to add a hard tonno cover. Then just lock the tailgate and hope they don't have a plazma cutter
#1788 of 2122 lockable bed cover
Jul 11, 2006 (1:53 pm)
I put a lockable hard bed cover on my truck to keep the bed divider and the utili-track system secure.
Out of sight out of mind and a lock just to be sure.
