    Saw this on the lot at O’Neil Nissan in Warminster, stopped for a look, and got some info from the salespeople…

    It’s 1986 Nissan Hardbody that supposedly has 58K original miles and is in very good condition, but DOES NOT have A/C; The dealer’s asking price is $7,990…

    Frontiers are good trucks, but they don’t have the heart and soul of. Hardbody…

    Is yours 4-cylinder or V6?

    She is a good truck. Only issues I have ran into are, the timing belt and the knock sensor , and spark plug fir #6
    Timing belt needs to be replaced every 75k to 125k miles. If not, the belt breaks, it ruins the engine. The knock sensor I had relocated and the spark plug for #6 can go fuck itself. Why put that part on the back of the engine with only 1" of clearance :mad:..... assholes

    Those Hardbody trucks were tough as nails and would run forever. I had two buddies, and both of them owned Hardbody trucks, and both guys drove the hell out of them. No frills, great basic transportation.

    A/C is the one “frill” I can’t do without, and it would probably cost close to $2K to put it in, so that’s why I’m not buying it…

    Interestingly, portions of that video are mirrored. This one is in the correct orientation:

    I might be the only one that says this truck already looks dated - but I prefer it that way. Trucks shouldn’t look like they are from the far flung future IMO.

    Brought a new Nissan NV200 in 2015 right off the lot 12 miles on the dash. Sliding van doors stopped closing at 5k miles, doors wouldn’t even unlock when it got below freezing out, body started creaking like a old wheel barrow by 15k miles, and by 36k the CVT started clunking. Also burned oil even though I personally changed the oil myself every 5k. Sold at 45k. Still had the OEM warranty but the dealers are BS and say “it’s normal”. Whatever.

    those weren’t the only issues. There was a lot of quality and design bs like whenever you sprayed the washer fluid it would drain right into the blower motor and blown into your face. Or the exhaust hanger knocking when it got cold. Absolute POS.

    I’ve sold a handful of ‘14 era Versa and Sentras. I can’t count how many exhaust, heat shields, cats, fuel tank straps, and other pieces that rot away within a few years.

    Ghosn era cars went too cheap. The service I got from owning a NV left a nasty impression of Nissan. They won’t be seeing my money anymore. Not even a GTR or 400z.
