Traded it.

Well, I said farewell to my '02 Frontier on Saturday. I traded it for a .......wait for it........ wait for it.... 2013 Toyota Tacoma.

I like both the frontier and the tacoma, but it came out on top for me. I got it with 5 miles on the odometer (2-3 of those put on by me).

I was able to talk them down a couple thousand, talked up the frontier another grand, and had a decent down payment. Got a $34K truck for $25,5k after trade in.

I got a 2013 Double Cab 4x4 TRD Sport. All I can say is I smile every time I get in and drive


2002 Nissan Frontier 4x4 XE 3.3 V6 5-spd Manual, General Grabber A/T2s 265 70R15, Rancho 5000s

The new Tacoma's are really nice trucks. I have test drove quite a few of them. I test drove a 2013 TRD Off-Road and it was awesome.

Congrats on it, I hope to get one someday as well.

What did make you go for the tacoma? I admit the new headlights they put on it look sharp, i really like the tweaked front end, but i went for the frontier mainly because the seating comfort, boxed frame, and extra horsepower. Also nissan was much more willing to deal.

I'm really hoping that was sarcasm.

They are nice trucks, but I have to admit, I giggle like a 10 year old when I see the letters TRD on the side of em. Then again, they see me driving a Suzuki pick-up. We both get a good laugh.
