You type pretty well for someone who can't read. Follow your own advice and read before posting.
"the Tacoma is more desirable. Since this is a "New 2005 Toyota Tacoma vs 2005 Nissan Frontier" forum I am comparing Tacoma sales vs. Frontier sales."
"...sales don't equal quality...Taco outselling Frontier= better truck."
Not once did I ever say that. You did, with your "Then that must mean the Canyon/Colorado is the best midsize truck? " comment. Let's keep it semi adult here, why all the name calling? A little insecure?

You are really making me laugh, so I thank you. I can't believe how aggressive this has become. I suggest you get some anger management counseling. If you are this frustrated over an "idiot" you have never met, and don't know anything about, how can you function in life? Take a break, take a breath, and relax. It is only the internet and some idiot's opinion on a couple of trucks. Life is way to serious to get worked up about this. Enjoy your truck and have a nice weekend, I know this belligerent, ignorant, idiot is definitely going to one (you have already put a smile on my face).

Just because I use italics and bold type doesn't mean I'm angry.
By the way, good job changing the subject once you realize you're full of .

I really like a man/woman who has to get the last word and try to put in one more shot. You have really made my friends and I laugh out loud, which is really what life is about. Cheers from sunny california

The Internet was not made for two inane wannabees with too much time on their hands to flame each other. To topic is senseless; LESS FILLING, TASTE GREAT....Get the idea.
My question has to do with the next model year of Fronty and Taco. Can anyone advise on what changes will occur in both models. Thanks for your reply.

Don't know what's gonna be new with Toyota but according to nissannews.com there will be just a few changes in store for the '06 models:
"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"
Nothing major but if anyone knows of anything else, please let us know.

Thanks for the info dtt. My biggest problem with the 05 Fronty was the limited color choice. Hopefully, one of the new three will be good for me.

Hey thanks for the updates on the 06 Frontier. I've been very happy with my 05. 19,000 trouble-free miles in 7 months.
For the gentleman claiming the 05 Tacoma is more desirable than the 05 Frontier: you are correct the Tacoma is selling more. However, with the exception of MT, who liked the many configuration options of the Tacoma, every other press review I know of has picked this order: Ridgeline first (provided you don't off-road), Frontier second, Tacoma third, then all the rest. Colorado/Canyon usually finishes last, but sells the most, probably helped by price as you pointed out.
My personal evaluation matches the press: Ridgeline, Frontier, Tacoma. I'm an off-roader, so the Ridgeline did not make my short list. I test drove four new 05 Tacomas; all had some sort of mechanical problem, such as difficulty getting in and out of four wheel drive. They did drive nicely with the exception of weak drum brakes. The mechanical problems and low lateral exhaust crossmember that would be damaged off-road dropped the Tacoma from my list. If you are lucky enough to have one without any mechanical problems, then you have a good truck.
The worst problem I've had with my Frontier is a squeaky hood latch that needs to be lubed about once a month. It has exceeded my expectations both off-road and on road. I suspect that some of its weak sales figures are caused by people not knowing how good it is compared to the 04 and earlier models; in those years I think most would have easily picked the Tacoma over the Frontier or anything else. 05 has been a great year for trucks. The press has enthusiastically welcomed the new Ridgeline, Frontier, and Tacoma. As I mentioned above, that's the order they finish in comparison tests, too. If you don't off-road, you'll be impressed by how well the Ridgeline drives and its interior and bed space.
Happy shopping to all.
