#8 of 41 Questions about '08 Frontier
Mar 16, 2008 (9:07 am)
Are the five-spoke alloy wheels still available for the 2008 SE 4X4? When I went to 'Build Your Frontier' on the Nissan USA website, the only wheel that was shown was a six-spoke style that I don't care for compared to the five-spoke style that I remember seeing on several '07 models. Maybe I just missed something somehow and they are still available.
Second question. A friend of mine has had problems twice now with the paint on his '07 Frontier along the top of the cab where there is a molding present. Is this a common problem with the paint on '07 model Frontiers, or is he just extremely unlucky? I'm strongly considering the purchase of an '07 or '08 model Frontier, but I want to make sure that I'm not going to have to deal with a bunch of problems.
#9 of 41 Locking Gas Cap?
Mar 25, 2008 (7:50 pm)
2008 Nissan Frontier V-6 King Cab does not have a locking gas cap or locking door cover for gas filler. Purchased a "locking gas cap at Auto Zone" and the "check engine soon" light come on. Replaced the new locking cap with the original cap. On the way to the dealer to discuss the light, it went out and stayed off the rest of the day. Any suggestions on how to modify the gas cap door/cover to include a key/lock? Dealer had no suggestions.

I've heard of such things through this forum, but I've never actually witnessed any paint problems myself. I own an 07 Frontier Crew 4x4 Nismo, and have for going on one year. I currently have 16,000 kilometers (approx. 10,000 miles) on the odometer. I've travelled on practically every road surface imaginable, and see no paint damage at all. I know that the composition of the pints are different now because of environmental concerns, but I'm completely happy with the purchase, have no issues, and the truck has been trouble free.

It's been two years since I bought my SE, but I recall that each trim (LE, Nismo, SE) has a different alloy wheel spoke count. You can't pick which wheel you want.
I've had no paint failure on my cab roof.

Could you give the name of the dealership in Erie, PA? You got a great deal on your truck. I live in Buffalo and the dealers here don't deal.

#15 of 41 2008 Nissan Frontier Brake Squeal
Jul 04, 2008 (7:54 am)
I have a 2008 Nissan Frontier with 3000 miles. Whenever I back out of my driveway after the truck has been sitting for along time, the brakes squeal. They are OK in the forward direction and do not squeal in reverse after the truck warms up. Does anyone else have this problem? I took it to the dealer and they stated that this was normal when the rotors are wet, cold, etc. However, none of my other vehicles are doing this. I had Nissan Altima that had the same problem a few years back, but they would always squeal until I put aftermarket ceramic pads on it. Then it ran fine. I am wondering if I may need to do the same to the truck. Other than this problem I am happy with the vehicle. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I need help. I want to put bigger rims on my 2008 Frontier. Does anyone know anything about the TIRE PRESSURE SENSOR? Can I buy after market sensor that will work on my truck and where?

The sensor may be purchased from dealer, aftermarket such as Tirerack, or transferred from existing wheels if compatible.
If you purchase new sensors, they will have to be programmed to work at the dealer.
