I've have finally agreed to a deal for a 2003 SE 4 wheel drive long bed with canopy from a private party on Craigslist and I am pretty excited.
I have been driving a Lexus es330 since 2012 (except for two years while I lived in Europe) that I inherited from my grandmother when she got too old to drive. It is a great car but does not fit my lifestyle in the least. I am selling it to my mother in law when the truck becomes my daily driver.
I have been looking into frontiers for months now and this was the third I had inspected. Although a few issues were found, non were major and I was able to negotiate a good deal that'll leave money in my pocket after a thorough tune up.
I'm looking forward to owning a truck again, my only other was an '81 VW rabbit pickup. I love tiny trucks but with a growing family and work as an ironworker, I needed something that had a little more room to roam.
I know that an older trunk with more miles will force me to become more familiar with maintenance, which i have little experience with, so I hope that this forum will be able to help me with my future endeavours.
I'll update with pictures once I have the truck in hand this weekend.
