Well after my 92 GMC jimmy decided it was time to retire i headed out for a new truck. I was going to get something used like always but my wife said to get me something new. I looked at the Frontiers and Tacomas, only 2 i would consider. Loved both trucks, but nissan offered me a nice deal and toyota thought the exhaust out of the tacoma didnt stink. Sticker prices on 2010 SE cc 4x4, and the tacoma SR5 were almost the same right at $29,000. Nissan dealer gave me a deal of $23,700 with a dealer incentive of lifetime warranty on motor, powertrain. Toyotas best deal was $28,800. So for a difference of $5000 i had to go with the Frontier, i really love the truck it had like 26 miles on it. The first day i had it here we got like 14 inches of snow, i drove it for 3 days in the snow all in 4 wheel drive, worked wonderful. I figured my mpg and got 15.5 , i thought that was great for driving in 4 wheel drive. Well here comes my question, the following week i drove only to work which is 30 miles one way of 60 mph. After i filled up and figured my mpgs i was getting 15 mpg, huh. How did highway driving get less than driving around town in 4 wheel drive? Love my truck though. 2010 SE 4x4 cc,6cyl 4.0 lt auto, brick red.
