Frontier shouldnt even be on that list, the data they provide shows that too..
I would agree with that but....I got rid of a Dodge Ramcharger that was getting 12 mpg. So I traded up and am really pleased. Also, I wanted a smaller truck. People (if it is even true) who don't like a vehicle that they purchased, should have done a little better research and not fallen into the new car trance that the salesmen are so good at.
I'll tell you what I really hate though...the 5 hours you spend at the dealer doing the actual purchase not to mention the 8 or so other dealers you visited trying to get a good deal.
Yep. I ditched a Ford Focus because it only got 26 with 28 average. My truck does the same as yours, which is a lot better than the Titan that went away with the Focus. I'm happy.Meh... mine will do 22mpg or so on the highway. Normal commute is 17-19 with plenty of stops and hills. A 4-banger econobox will only manage about 25 on the same route.
I ditched my 14 Focus St at one year old. Biggest POS I have ever owned. After owning 20 vehicles after 30 years, it is the only vehicle that has left me stranded and have ever had towed. (Around 2k miles) In the first 5k miles it had been to the dealer for warranty work 5 times. The first trip was 2 days after buying it.Yep.

I would agree with that but....
I needed a truck NOW. There were no manuals ANYWHERE and I couldn't wait 2 months to get one in. I needed a four door, but no KC were available. In fact there were NO long beds of ANY kind within a 1000 miles of me.
As for the "5 hours you spend at the dealer" thing, I was in and out in less than an hour and a half.
It was 45 minutes for my new Infiniti Q50S
