    Looks remarkably nice! Subscribing to see if anyone's had first-hand experience with one of these.

    It is nissan's truck!! Suzuki subcontracted them to build the "Frontier" and place different emblems and grills on them. Which sucks for anyone out there who owns a frontier, cause their value just DROPPED!!! One more reason to get a TACOMA!!!!!:D:D

    If you start building one, it prices out about the same at the Taco. I'll still stick with the yota

    It looks better than a Frontier, but it's still no Tacoma. JMO.

    I bought an 04 titan new in 04 when they came out and were the Hemi Eaters, the only thing I liked about it was the engine, and it sucked through rear axle seals like water and Nissan just let me go out of warranty and said your problem so I traded that sucker fast. I drove a New Tundra and wanted that ...but with gas 4.50 and for what I use a truck for, I wanted the Taco. Plus I had owned an 84, and a 95 so i knew what I was buying. If suzuki wants to get into the american truck market they are going to have problems. I'd consider that Indian Truck makers diesel/gasser before a suzuki though...let them stick to bikes, atvs, snowmobile motors, tractors etc..I want a diesel mid-size that gets 30mpg + and can tow 10k

    Yeah, I had 6 Frontiers and 3 Taco's. I honestly would never buy another Nissan again!!!! Too many things to list, but overall, just not the same quality. Now that Dodge, or sorry, I mean FIAT is taking over their builds, I'm OUT FOR SURE on 'em. JMO though :D
