Buying my first Fronty

I'm on the market for a used 2009-2011 4X4Crew Cab/4D/AT. Assuming one is well-maintained over the life of the vehicle, roughly how many miles can I expect to get out of a Fronty from these model years? Thanks!

Netxtown,

Alway's glad to hear from those with high mileage.

Is this with the original radiator without the Auto Tranmission Radiator Bypass?

I've seen Mileage #'s over 300K,, but yet to see over 400K yet, but with Good Maintenance and No Abuse,, I don't see a problem.

Good Luck

Hello Maryjo,

Check out Truecar.com, to see lowest price that the car that you want, sold for. If someone else got it for that price,, then so can you.

I personally have alway's preferred to purchase rather than lease, but in certain situation's leaseing may be a better option. With interest rate's still low, purchaseing make's sense to me. Just make sure that you pay the lowest price possible on a New Car or Truck.

Be sure to test drive a New Frontier. Lot's of advantage's in owning a Truck, and in an SV version, you'll save quiet a bit of Money, with much lower payment's. Food for thought.

Be sure to check out Truecar.com, to see what the lowest price paid for the vehicle that you want though.

Good Luck in however you decide to go.

BRubble - I did the radiator by-pass as soon as I heard about it. Just glad I did before anything snapped. I did get the dreaded timing chain buzz - so had it replaced. Other than that just small incidentals (crankshaft position sensor, worn upper control arm bushings, and engine mounts. But the engine and tranny run smooth and sweet. No scary sounds, no leaks, no stranded on side of the road. This fronty has been an excellent truck - and I will buy another sooner or later.

Netxtown,

You are doing Great,, and staying on top of Preventative Maintenance.

Before this '13 SV Frontier, I had a '93 Hardbody that I drove for 20 year's as Daily Driver. It was a good one,, and still running good,, but at 20 year's, I figured it's about time to get another New truck. I looked and drove them all, includeing Full size Chevy, Ford, & Ram. The Frontier won out over all of them for me. I can't say that this '13 is the Best Truck, but for the money,, it was the best truck for the money for me. So far so good.

Another thing that I figured out after I got this V6 Frontier,, is that the different Trim Level's have different Rear Axle Drive Ratio's. The V6 Extended Cab's, at least with the '13 model year has the Lowest Drive Ratio. That translate's to Lower Engine RPM's at a given speed. At 70 mph, my engine rpm is a little below 2K rpm's. That's with Automatic 5 speed transmission, 16 inch wheel's and 2 wheel drive. I was wondering why mine was getting such good MPG. So far I'm averageing 20.4 mpg.

If you decide to go with Nissan again, be sure to give Nissan Consumer Affair's a Call and Request a VPP, which is an Owner Loyalty Discount. The VPP that they gave me,, made the difference. They have different one's, so respectfully ask for the best one that they can give you. Mine was 1K $'s below dealer invoice and anything that I could negotiate lower than that on the total price of the Truck.

Here's hopeing that your Frontier will keep giveing you good service.
