2007 LE 4x4 Crew Cab Long Box
You need it, so I would just let them install it and have the warranty with it - my opinion. Canada has such a limited market that we often get options without a choice as it is easier to do the production run for the manufacturers. I'm a VW car guy and once while down at the port, the fellow was telling me that the entire Canadian Jetta run out of the Mexico plant was 4 days production; all cars come with heated seats - it isn't an option here. I could see the block heaters from Nissan being the same, considering the overall low sales volumes of the Frontier versus Tacoma. For years, the Canadian annual Frontier sales numbers were the same as the Tacoma's monthly sales here.All the trucks that are on the dealer lots have block heaters already install and it may have happened during the PDI. As a former Toyota tech when we did the pdi the block heaters were installed at the same time. Customers paid for the heater and didn’t have the option to not have one because it was already installed.
Because I’m ordering the truck it will be interesting what the dealer does when I refuse it. If Nissan does install it at the factory, great, if not then I’ll install it myself after the truck arrives.
