    I remember the days... I had a 1998 Nissan Frontier SE 4X4. Bought in Dec. of 97. It was an awesome truck, but this TACO does laps around the Frontier. Good Decision. Welcome to TacomaWorld and congrats on the promotion.

    I have a 2006 Frontier XE. It is a good truck, i purchased it when gas was spiking and was attracted to the four banger and manual tranny, but i have always wanted the tacoma. After i did some research, the MPG isnt much different. Still havent settled on a package yet, but the dealership here in Olympia, WA has a great stock when i do decide.
