I'd buy another one right now for that kind of money. I've had a 2005 4x4 since new. It's been a pretty good truck. Aside from a preventative radiator replacement and a few other little issues, I'm pleased. Front drive shaft ujoints on mine went out at 90,000 and the rears weren't far behind. The engine is awesome.

2011 Pro 4X little cab here. Got it brand new and it has about 16,000 miles on it. Driving around my small town I see about 18mpg, driving in San Diego traffic I saw closer to 16mpg. Loaded down with Two guys, all their gear and two dirt bike I got 19mpg between here and Moab. My trip from here to Cabo saw me with an average of mid 18's mpg wise and that included that San Diego driving. I love it, but do feel like some others have mention that it gives up a little in fit and finish to my 2001 Toyota Tundra, but that thing reeeeally had shit mileage with about the same power. The seats do stain easily but as a "dirty" person and dog owner who really cares it's a truck. Overall I'm happy with my experience so far.



The utilitrac is awesome for up to three bikes. or two and a weekends gear.

I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure

My 2010 frontier 4 dr has been great- about 18 mpg, good room for 4, much quicker than others in the class. Very good for the light off roading I do.
Approaching 32K miles. Would do it again.

Assuming that you have Suzuki dealer support nearby and that they don't pull out of the US car market.
I know that even though the Ranger and later model Mazda's were the exact same truck, some Ford dealers were kind of difficult about dealing with the Mazdas.

I test drove a Frontier last year, and really, really liked it. If I hadn't had my heart set on owning a Jeep Wrangler, I'd probably be driving a Frontier right now.

Yeah, for the reasons mentioned above, I'm going to stay away from the Suzuki. I'm (hopefully) moving this Spring, and the chances are much better for a toyota/Nissan dealership to be close by than Suzuki. I'm driving the Nissan today, a 2010 V6 king cab 4x4 M/T.... trying to book a ride in the equivalent taco right after it to do a true back to back.
