    Hi,

    We currently own a 2001 Frontier 4x4 3.2L manual. So far maganda naman ang performance ng Frontier. I personally like the precise steering response and the white panel guages. Ang reklamo ko lang ay tinaggal nila heater sa Frontier model namin which I'm sure in your model has it still. Also dahil sa 3.2 liter siya ay medyo malakas ng kaunti sa diesel consumption compared to it's competition. Ride is quite stiff compared to my Strada pero it's a pick-up and not a car. Power is adequate. Looks is a plus. It's a good buy.

    4X4 pala yung inyo... my dream... kaso bitin sa pera.

    ok kaya ang A/T? gagamitin ko sya mostly sa city driving and weekend trip to the province.

    on your estimate ano ang fuel mileage nito. thanks.

    just keep your feedbacks coming... im taking notes.

    barokbok,
    oo nga ayos pang derby... kaso wala na kaming mga manok... nabenta na kasi yung small farm namin eh... kaya yon binenta na lang yung mga panlaban... may natira 6 na lang... mga paborito ko lang.

    Kelso (I see that you're into cock fighting),

    Depende how much you are buying it. My aunt bought a 2nd hand 2.7S frontier 2000 at P440,000 kahapon. If you calculate that is just about the book value of a frontier that is depreciated at 3 years assuming it is zero value at 5 years.

    A brand new 2.7 (all power na dahil wala na raw standard and elite editions) 2003 frontier SRP is about 770,000 (765,000 kung basic color special color ang added 5,000).

    So you do your math na lang, maraming banks ngayon willing to give autoloan so why buy a 2nd hand if you can afford naman. Ipang down mo yung cash on hand and bunuin mo na lang ang monthly.

    Mahirap and expensive din magmaintain ng diesel. But the 2.7 frontier is okay naman ang tipid (last time I checked, I'm within 8-11kms/litter depending on my driving habit). Kaskasero kasi ako (its very normal for me to fly between 140-160kph with my frontier whenever it is possible).

    Overall, I would rate the frontier a good grade (though I haven't checked out the 2.9L Ford Ranger, 2.8L Toyota Hilux). I'm not into Strada or L200 unless they put in the 2.8L engine. IMHO, kayang-kayang iwanan ng 2.7 frontier ang ranger, 2.8 hilux and the pajero na naka 2.8L turbo (kasi nagawa ko na - but then again I could be wrong you know).

    The things I don't like: It could not be lifted like the ranger and hilux and its too fast I could kill myself.

    Yung lang po. My 2 cents. Peace.

    Yup, the best ang A/T in city driving lalo na pag-traffic ng matindi. Di na mapapagod left foot mo sa clutch.

    Galing ako sa Nissan kanina checking out the Frontier. Mukhang Ok naman. The chrome wheels do turn me off somehow, though.

    Medyo bouncy siya pero marami namang suspension tricks ang mga tao dito to soften it up.

    Nakakainis lang wala siyang cabin heater. Mahilig pa naman ako mag-heater kapag nagmamaneho ako ng madaling araw or kapag late at night. Also, hindi din yata selectable kung aling air duct lalabas ang hangin. Parating sa dashvents lang.

    Current favorite ko 'yang Frontier (hmmm...bakit kaya?). :mrgreen:
