    No issues. Take it or leave it.

    I own an ‘09 Xterra.. I bought it new and it currently has over 260k miles on it, I’ve never had a single issue with it. I LOVE my Xterra.. That being said, I’ll be buying a Tacoma TRD Off Road in a week or so. I need a truck and drove the new Frontiers, and basically nothing has changed in the 10 years since I’ve owned the Xterra, they are way overdue for an update. Great engine and transmission though. I’ll keep it for a backup vehicle.

    The Titan is easily the ugliest full-size truck on the market. Just plain horrible.

    I had a 2wd 2015 frontier v6 auto. Truck hauled ass! Seemed way faster than my Tacoma. Really nice on the road too. Horrible on the dirt. Every time that truck even saw dirt it got a flat lol.

    i liked the way the 15 and earlier Titans looked.
    I think on the newer ones, its just the headlights look awful. the grill and the rest isnt that bad.

    i bet the perform well. ive always liked Nissan stuff. the wife has a 2013 pathfinder AWD we've drove all over. aside from minor issues, its been a very solid vehicle. i had a 2010 sentra that was about all i could afford when i got divorced (traded in an Armada, which i liked, in on it and took a mean hit on that). my oldest daughter still drives it. Next youngest daughter drives an Altima.
    I wont say bad stuff about Nissan mechanically. they are pretty easy to work on.
    as a side note, the Sentra, the Altima, and the Pathfinder all use the same oil filter... haha.

    I have a '10 Frontier Pro-4x with the 4.0L and 6spd manual. Very few complaints, in fact when I do decide to replace it there's a good chance I'll buy the exact same truck. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
