Nissan Frontier 2005+



  • Thanks for your input, that's good to know. :)
  • Anybody know when the next generation of the Frontier is coming out?

    Also, what about the 2008 model... anybody know when it's coming out, and any new features?

    I'm looking at buying an LE crew cab with limited slip diff., leather int., and sunroof. Has anyone bought one recently similar to this and if so would you mind giving up how much you got it for. I've had a few quotes from local dealerships and most seem to be averaging about 25200$ before tax. Thanks in advance!

    I have an '06 NISMO. I use it for work so it is high mileage, 31,000 in one year. It has been one awesome vehicle. Unfortunately, when I recently changed the oil I discovered a small problem while giving the underside a once over. The rear differential is leaking. It is a very small leak. Has anyone else had this problem with the Dana axles?

    It’s probably coming from the seal of the rear diff cover it happens. This is sealed by a silicone, so take it to the dealer and have them re-seal it.

    YEP, '05 NISMO with 40,000 miles. It was leaking out driver's side axle tube. Replaced myself; $25 for seal
    and had to use 20ton press with adapter to press off bearing and lock. Seal then slides right off and on. Then
    you must press bearing and lock back on. Also need a heavy
    slide hammer to remove axle.
  • I had to save money so got the SE Crew and would like to add the fog lights, does anybody know if they are prewired ?

    FYI tested mpg on straight interstate driving, calculated 23.5 , but I am not real sure since did't fill up at same station as before plus truck was slanting more on original fill up, I am sure that it at least got over 22mpg. I have the 2007 LWB, auto tranny and was driving aprox 70. My average mpg have been around 19 . Very happy with truck, the only thing that really %^#$ me off was a dent left on my fender from evidently a flung open door, :mad:

    The '05 and '06 SEs are prewired for fogs. If you look above your fenderwells from above, you'll see the wires neatly tied up and the connecting plugs. *Supposedly* Nissan changed the turn signal stalk in the '07s, thus making the dealer-supplied 'kits' not applicable to the '07s. It's not been proven that the '07 stalk is different, so with your '07 you need to verify which stalk is in your truck with your dealer and go from there.

    That's excellent mileage at 23.5! I have an '06 CC 6-Speed and my best has been 22.5 and my average is 21.5, all at moderate highay speeds matching your 70 mph.
  • I think in reality that I probably got around 22.5 considering the error of filling up the gas tank to different levels each time.

    I sure miss the manual floor shift a lot and as you know yo can get better mpgs especially in town, but in reality when I had my floor shift in other vehicles I never got a good mpg as I was tempted to put my foot down on the gas when I didn't have to, so to save my money I went ahead and did away with the temptation of having too much fun. :)

    I know what you mean about the manual shifter -- it's hard to resist running through the gears with the hammer down. When I test drove the Frontier 6-Speed, I was euphoric. The ratios are just perfect and it shifts like butter. I'm used to driving little 1.8L engine cars and have never owned anything like this 4.0L. I have only 6,000 Miles on the clock and I've noticed that my average MPG is slowly creeping up. I'm pleased with my MPG, especially in view of the instant power this truck can put to the ground.

    That VQ engine is soooooooooooo sweet, love that growl.
    What kind of mileage are you getting in U.S. gallons?
  • I have the automatic, crew, lwb, 2wd. I am getting an average 19 to 20 city/ and 21 to 23 mpg hwy. Has plenty of power especially after 3k rpm with the automatic. My old Ford Ranger only had 140hp and got close to the same mpg plus to make the engine stop pinging I had to use the super unleaded gas. This ones purrs on regular just fine. Very nice truck. :)

    I hate that key fob with a burning passion ....
  • I think I know why he may hate it. Every time I turn around I set the alarm off. I sit down in my recliner and the alarm went off once, the panic button is not recessed so you have to be very careful. My neighbors loved it when I set my alarm off at 5:00am getting ready to go to work.
  • driver56driver56 Posts: 408
    I wondered if that was the reason. My last vehicles' fob was quite touchy also, but soon learned how to live with it.
    I like to think that if I had designed my particular fob, that it would have recessed buttons. Makes sense to me. Guess I'll never be able to wear tight jeans ever again.
    In the end, if that's the only beef...........lucky us.

    What I don't like about the fob is just that. My Honda Accord key has the fob built-in. Not necessary to go from fob to key.
    My biggest complaint on my 2006 XE auto is that pesky thunk when I stop. At first it almost never happened. Now it happens about half the time when I stop. Way back when someone suggested a leaf spring helper as a cure. That sounds like it would have a negative impact on the ride comfort.

    Love the VQ-40 growl too! I've got no need for an aftermarket exhaust; it sounds teriffic from the factory.

    I average 21.5 MPG (US Gallons) Highway with the 6-Speed over only 6,000 Miles. I've received several 22.5 MPG tanks and the average is moving up.
  • asaasa Posts: 359
    Yep, it seems official -- the '07 SEs do indeed have a different turn signal/foglight stalk than the 05/06's, so be cautious when you order the '07 stalk with the foglight switch. I do not have the correct P/N.
  • asaasa Posts: 359
    Looks like the stalk with the foglight switch for those who want to install foglights in their 2007 SEs (without automatic headlights) is Nissan 25540-ET11A. Again, this is a different part than is needed for the '05/'06 SEs. I'd double check the P/N with the dealer if you decide to order it.
