Regret...help!

I guess you cant really help, but yeah..

Im regretting buy my frontier. Mainly because I have been wanting a full size truck now. Ive only had the frontier for roughly 2 months and wish I had bought a full size. Not because I NEED full size, but for about the same price and same gas mileage I could of got a full size truck.

Im sure Ill get over it, but just had to get it out.

What are the reasons that you bought a frontier over a full size? If you were thinking about both before buying? What are some of the advantages of having a frontier over full size? At least what do you think?



I feel like an idiot..

^ What he said. I spent a year trying to find my next vehicle. I knew exactly what I wanted before I even stepped on the lot. If what I really wanted was a full size, I would've gotten a full size. You settled, and now it sucks. Hate it for ya.

Have you ever owned a fulll sized pickup?
I had a Titan for three years and loved it. More often than not it was a pain to park, too wide with towing mirrors to go in garage, didn't fit at bank drive through window etc. I had two Frontiers prior and came back to a Frontier. Yes, I understand where you're coming from but prefer the Frontier to a full size still.

18 mpg everyday versus 14 mpg is a difference. Larger trucks barely fit in my garage with my wife,'s van, my Harley and 6 bicycles and bunch of other crap. Frontier was perfect. Just as quick, crew cab fits 3 kids in the back and 30% better mileage. Now the Ford ecoboost crewcab XLT is $40k - just about double of the $22k I paid for my 12 CC Fronty.

Funny thing is someone will pay the $18,000 more than you did and think they're doing better than you by getting the slightly better mileage.

One thing that still makes me wonder is how I can get 26 mpg's out of my 6.4 liter hemi with 500 horsepower. I beat the highway estimate of 23 mpg on my window stricker.
Nissan hopefully soon can get these engines to put out better mileage. Regardless I still enjoy my frontier immensely.

I still don't understand what people are doing to get piss poor mileage in their trucks. My window sticker said 18mpg hwy, I always get at least 20+, can and have gotten almost 25... Drive like a sane person, that's all I do, and it rewards me with excellent fuel economy for a 2 ton plus, 4wd truck on 32in tires...
