Customer Service: 5.0 Buying Process: 5.0 Overall Facilities: 5.0

We drove about 2 hours to get to Elk Grove Dodge. After doing searches in our area and beyond, we found that this dealership had the best prices. We have bought many new vehicles through out the years and I must say this was one of the best experiences we had. We brought our dogs along and they were so nice to let us have them there with us during our buying experience. The sales team and everyone involved were so nice and they were not pushy or anything. They are really a great team and great place to buy a vehicle. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good buying experience. Thank you all.

The gas mileage is not so good. Don't take possession of the truck until it has everything that you ordered, and is in good condition ie: no scratches, or dents. Also make sure that the floor mats are new & not used.

love my Frontier

Okay little truck, but the 4 cylinder engine was a disappointment, it lacks in power and gives me about the same Mileage as my old 2000 Nissan Frontier 6 cylinder standard transmission did. The truck I bought is bear-bones with crank windows and manual door locks, wish I had upgraded, but the price was the reason for the lesser truck.

Several packages over and above Std Crew Cab with 5 foot bed. Head restraints on back seats block 2/3rds of rearview mirror. I removed the head restraints to have full view of rear of truck. GPS/Navigation comes as a premium. You can have GPS with custom mount for a lot less money and viewing the GPS is just off your right side of the steering wheel at the 2 o'clock position. I have used my TomTom 5/7" on the last 4 Nissan Frontier Trucks with the same custom mount to the dashboard through the top vent of the left A/C vent. The custom mount goes with me on each sale. V6 Engine provides plenty of power when needed on the highway or on a city street. I purchased separately a custom bed cover which enhances the gas mileage about 3% and completes the trim of the back of the truck. Also keeps the storage area dry. The bed extender attached to the inside of the bed with side & floor tracks with cleats has always been a must for the truck bed. I am 6'4" the Frontier offers plenty of leg room and head room. So look over the various features and comfort packages to get what you need.

There are a lot of "PROS" with this truck. (The biggest one for me was the amazing price that found - couldn't pass it up...). Aside from that, I a very happy with this pickup. the cabin is quiet, and it is very stable on the road, even a highway speeds here in Kansas (80+) with wind that can be brutal and sustained... I haven't felt like I was being blown around too much. I added a tonneau bed cover and it helped the stability a lot, which surprised me. Braking is very good, I have had to engage the ABS one time already... when a car pulled over on me in city traffic. If I am picky, there are a few negatives, however. The first is the overall cabin room, which I would expect to be similar in other models - it took a little getting used to... I don't notice it any more, but at first felt a little cramped - and wished that the seat would push back further. The other letdown was the mileage. I have averaged 19 mpg, which is mostly highway. I had hoped with a 6 cylinder that I would be in the low to mid 20's... Overall I am very happy with this truck. I upgraded the factory speakers - I am an audiophile though - so that was important to me. I also added Raptor chrome step bars so my daughter and fiancée can get in more easily (both are around 5'3"). It would have been unnecessary for me though. I also have towed a trailer with a car on it for about 50 miles, with absolutely no problems. It doesn't accelerate like my last car (2006 GTO) - but then, what could?? Ha Ha.

Tried out Tacoma (did not like ride and vis ability), Colorado. Liked Frontier best of all three at about 5K less money. Fuel economy was a concern. However, first two fill-ups 19 plus mpg...I'm happy.

This is 4 wheel vehicle #33 (+12 motorcycles). Last truck was 2009 Toyota Tacoma standard cab 4WD (good truck). Last full size truck was Dodge Ram 1500 standard cab 2WD 5.7 hemi (great acceleration). Typical commute to ranch is 220 miles, but last 8 miles are rocky road and last 3/4 mile is Jeep trail. Wife and I are EXTREMELY satisfied. Mileage from west end of Glacier National Park to east end and return was 23.73! Mileage from Las Vegas Valley to Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada and back was 20.56, which included substantial 80 MPH speed limits. Around town mileage is rated 15 MPG and that is what we get, if only town (not typical). Combined is about 17.5 MPG. Low RPM torque is excellent. Pulls grades on I40, east of Kingman, AZ mainly in 5th gear at 75 MPH. Wish bed light had auto/on/off switch instead of auto with any door opening. Turning radius is not the best, but no worse than wife's former 2004 GMC Sonoma crew cab 4WD. Wife likes (a) 8 cup holders, (b) upper and lower glove box, (c) wide door pockets and (d) comfortable ride, although it does sidestep around curves over bumps, due to higher profile tires (which we like for going over rocks). In addition to torque/acceleration, I like under rear seat storage for tools, tow strap, jumper cables, tie downs, etc and room behind back seat for jacket, thin backpack, as well as factory jack and tire tools. Instruments do not need an operation manual to quickly understand. Battery and air filter easy to access. 10" ground clearance on 4WD. Other than a new 92 Nissan Sentra GXE, my only other Nissan was a new 1973 Datsun PL620 P/U. In 1982 I put a Chevrolet 350 V-8 in it with a 500 CFM Carter AFB on an SP2P Edlebrock manifold, hooker headers, dual exhausts, Chevrolet turbo350 auto trans and a shortened/resplined 2.92:1 differential (for traction). This factory Frontier is almost as much fun!...and it has 4WD and aairconditioning. - SportsterDoc

This is a solid truck. Heavy truck for mid size. Handles well when driving and going around turns it really hugs the road, feels great to drive. Owned a Toyota Tacoma before but didn't have as much power and felt lighter and didn't handle the best when going around turns.

This vehicle, a 2016 Frontier SV does not have automatic headlights. Almost every truck does. The LED screen is just 5 inches when most trucks are eight inches or more. Very stiff ride, which I like. Dealer was excellent. Second Nissan Frontier that I have owned.

This is my seventh Nissan Frontier and they are the hardest working little trucks you can buy. Although it is a good-looking truck ,they are rugged hard-working little trucks too. I work in construction and use mine for hauling drywall, tools and trailers every day. With a half ton payload and 6000 pounds hauling capability I regularly carry large load up and down the hills of West Virginia! I have been pleased with every truck I have owned from Nissan clear back when they were still Datsun trucks. I normally put 25 to 35,000 miles a year on these trucks and they require very little maintenance and hold up well to my abuse! I use mine as a tool - and I love my new hammer!

I bought this truck because I wanted a 4x4 midsize truck that would fit in my garage without paying 35+ thousand dollars. It is a nice, reliable truck that is fairly comfortable in the front and I like the heated cloth seats. I drove 1000 miles straight thru and had no problems. However, the back seats are terrible and I would feel sorry for anyone who has to ride in the back. Luckily, I am generally the only one in it so for me it isn't a problem. The infotainment system is ok, but not great. I have trouble with the primary apps (Pandora and Iheart Radio) dropping off occasionally and the speakers aren't great. It has dual climate control which I love. I also like the value package that came with the truck that allows for tying down cargo in the bed, along with the bed extender. My biggest and loudest complaint is the awful, terrible gas mileage. The truck has plenty of power, which is nice, but it is at the expense of gas mileage. There are full-size trucks out there that get way better fuel economy. In all, it is a nice reliable truck. I like it and would recommend it, but just understand what your getting. I am leasing this for another 1 1/2 yrs and will probably let it go primarily because of the gas mileage. However, if they can improve on the fuel economy before my lease is up then I would have no problem getting another one, because it is a nice truck otherwise.

Great Truck

Traded my 2009 dodge ram in for the 2016 Nissan frontier pro4x. I AM LOVE ! I have been looking for a new vehicle because my dodge literally was crumbling in front of me. Thought about going for the new Tacoma, but I didn't like that it was the first run of the " completely renewed Tacoma " so I went for the frontier. The thought of it not being changed since 2004 really grabbed my attention as they hold their value so well. I owned a 2006 jeep wrangler before my dodge and I would say the frontier drives super similar to how the older jeeps drove, which is why I fell in love with the pro4x. If you want a solid riding, reliable truck, then I say go for the frontier.

My new 2016 Frontier is missing a bunch of padding near the backrest in the drivers seat. Feels like you are sitting in a hole and hurts my back. Nissan is not willing to replace or repair the seat. Passengers seat has the padding and is comfortable. 100% dissatisfied with Nissan Customer Service. I purchased a new 2011 Frontier and was very happy with the truck, so purchased a new 2016 exact copy. Both driver and passenger seats on the 2011 were identical and comfortable. After dealing with Nissan Customer Service, I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER NISSAN PRODUCT! The dealer and Nissan indicated they would write no more repair/complaints. So much for the LEMON LAW!

I'm a pretty big guy. 6'4/ 260 lbs. I traded up for my 2009 king cab 2.4 liter manual transmission. Got the price I wanted. I was able to find a Desert Runner, in Silver with the hokey decals already removed. Maybe I'm used to semi truck brakes, but I have no trouble stopping my Frontier. I expect the audio system to go first. My wife's second Maxima is the only one (out of six) that didn't fail. I question Nissan's Interior color choices, and the materials seem flimsy, but they are very durable. If you want fluff and gadgetry, look elsewhere. If you want a solid, well made, Reliable and durable car, buy a Nissan. I have owned Nissan since 1987, All went 120k miles problem free and I know two of the six are still being driven by our children. I currently own two Chevrolets that I can't say the same about. Can't buy a comparable well made vehicle for the same price.

This is a nice mid sized truck, however the brake pedal is very sponge and goes down almost to the floor. We checked with the service manager and said the brakes are designed that way. Also I felt the controls were confusing, remembering I did not have a chance to really study them. I'll keep my Silverado.

Very Satisfied with My Truck!

Recently I purchased a new Nissan Frontier SV King Cab with the 4.0 V6 automatic, and I really like it. For about two years prior to my purchase, I considered the Frontier as well as the Toyota Tacoma and to a lesser extent the Chevy Colorado. There are several reasons why I chose the Frontier over the Tacoma or Colorado. Among those reasons is way it drives; the Frontier handles very well and feels very solid on the road. The interior and seating position felt more "right" to me than its competitors. In my opinion, the Frontier's exterior looks much better than the Tacoma and even the Colorado. Finally, for the money, I believe I got a much better deal with the Frontier, paying thousands of dollars less for what I would have paid for similar features in its competitors. I have owned other pickups in the past, including a Mazda pickup, an older Toyota pickup, and a Ford Ranger, and in my opinion the Nissan Frontier is clearly the best of them all, even though it is really not fair to compare this Frontier to the older trucks. While this particular version of the Frontier has been around for more than a decade, it is still very up-to-date. My truck has Bluetooth, XM Radio, a USB jack, and apps available in the entertainment system. So far, I have hauled several loads and towed a small utility trailer with no problems at all. I am very satisfied with the Frontier and would without hesitation recommend it to others.

I set out to buy a Tacoma, but several factors set my decision on the Frontier. First The Dealer "Sparks" was as useless as a three legged horse. No help on the trade of my 2013 Prius that had hail damage. and the cost of the Tacoma was going to cost me more that 5K than the better equipped Frontier. SV Package included Tow PKG, Extend a bed Dual control Heat/AC, Heated Seats, Auto Dim Mirror with thermometer and compass built in fabric seats etc. The ride is much better than my Prius noisewise and comfort wise, The acceleration is excellent and the steering seems nice and tight. The Dealer "Grand Strand Nissan" and the sales and management were excellent. They offered more than 5k on my trade than the Toyota was willing to give. I noticed a superficial scratch on the tail gate spoiler and mentioned it to my sales agent and the shop manager came out looked and said we'll replace it without a problem. I could have lived with it but being a new truck I was happy they offered. Great overall experience

Having owned many Rangers, (which were very strong tough trucks) the Nissan Frontier is by far the better truck. Very strong frame, very solid riding. The engine, V-6 strong, plenty of torque. The price advantage is excellent. A similar equipped Toyota Tacoma will list for apron $4.000 more.

After one year, I opened the door for the cabin filter and 1) the latch broke, and 2) there were no cabin filters installed. Really had to save a nickle and leave out two paper filters? Not impressed.

I've had the 2016 rental 3 weeks while my car is getting repaired from an accident. I enjoy driving the truck as it has plenty of power and handles very well, but the mileage is nowhere near its EPA rating. I'm getting only 12-15 mpg with 2/3rd of more of my driving on highways. A lot of full size trucks do better. What really surprised me is the lack of small features I've grown accustomed to in my GM vehicles. The lights are manual - you have to turn them on and off. C'mon! I had a 2003 Chevy S10 pickup (base work truck model) that had automatic lights. This Frontier is a loaded model and it doesn't have this feature. It also lacks a vehicle travel computer showing instantaneous and average speeds and gasoline consumption, miles until empty, etc., nor an outside temperature readout. I read through the manual to find out if they are hidden behind some function on the radio/info center. Every GM vehicle I've had since 2007 has all these as standard on every model and trim level. Also, it didn't have the rear camera, though the manual indicated some models have it. I expected it on a loaded 4wd full cab 4x4. Again, a feature that GM is making standard on all vehicles.

I'll keep this short. Needed a truck to replace my 2001 Ford Ranger 4x4 and this truck appeared to fit that need. Negotiated for a good price and road tested it on local roads, less than 50mph. It handled ok. What a surprise though when driving on highway or any back roads that are posted 50 plus that have curves. You'll need to work that steering wheel to keep the truck on line. I drive school buses, flat noses and conventional, and they handle 10 times better than this truck. Fortunately for me most, not all,, is local driving. If your thinking about buying this truck, road tested it like no other vehicle you've bought before.

I originally bought a 2015 SV V6 2WD King Cab (in May 2015). After using it for 6 months it became obvious there was not enough room in the cab when I needed to carry passengers. I was also a little disappointed with the lack of features I have become accustomed to in my new vehicles - heated seats, compass, outside temp, rear camera............ While the reviews of this 2015 vehicle were not outstanding, I was happy (overall) with my truck. It was fairly noisy, but it fit my expectations of a truck. (I want to be able to carry stuff, with reasonable expectations for performance and reliability.) So after getting a reluctant nod from my wife, I bought the same truck as a 2016 (November 2015). However, this time it was a 4 door SV with the value truck package. This version is much more usable, with less road noise. Gas mileage is not outstanding, but it's not rediculous (as you might expect from the reviews). I get 20 mpg consistently (combined). The features and controls work well, and are simple to use. However, they may be somewhat dated in their design. Again they honestly meet my expectations for a truck. I did look at the new Chevy when I bought the 2015. The dealers were unwilling to negotiate on the price, and there were few vehicles available on the lot. There were no Toyota's available in a 2WD, and the dealers were even less willing to negotiate about the price. To be honest, I may be unlike many who want a pick-up. I'd really prefer a small/mid pick-up that would be based on a small SUV. This would likely improve gas mileage, and address the main reason I have a pick-up. Did I mention I want to have the ability to carry stuff...... I am not a farmer or tradesman, so I don't need all the bulk and capacity of a real pick-up. I use this vehicle to go to work, shopping, and just general transportation. Given the 3 small trucks currently available in the market, I think the 4 door Frontier is a competent choice. It doesn't seem to have any of the concerns noted in many of the customer reviews for the new GM's or Toyota, and the gas milage is not significantly different.

I've owned this truck for several months and am quite satisfied. I average about 18 mpg in town and 22 hwy. mpg. Purchase cost was no bargain but after-all, I bought a 2016 in Oct. of 2015 so they don't budge much on price. It has a comfortable and quiet ride. I am 6'1'' tall and weigh 270 but have ample room in the drivers seat. Cabin over-all is comfortable. It has a very comfortable and quiet ride. This is my first Nisson after owning six Hondas so it has a lot to live up to. I never did a single repair on any of my Hondas. I wish it had keyless entry and start but this was not a deal-breaker. The white back-up lights are quite dim and don't help your vision at night so I replaced them with 900 lumen lights. Also not a deal-breaker but definitely needs improvement. So far I would recommend a Frontier to others.
