Only one issue in 3 years, an e-brake adjustment, not a big deal. Solid truck, can handle anything you put it through. Does not fall apart, inside or out.

I bought this truck, all routine maintenance is performed by the dealership I purchased it at. I have never taken it in on a recall, and the only trouble I have had is the emergency break needing an adjustment, which was very minor in my opinion.

Nissan has a reputation for producing reliable vehicles.

Not a reliable vehicle. Unless you like shelling out $4500 for a new transmission. COMMON OCCURENCE! I caught the transmission failure at an early stage. Yet I had to constantly check in with 2 Nissan Dealers to catch this early. Coolant is leaking into the transmission. POOR DESIGN NISSAN!

Less than 40K miles and have already replaced one head on the engine, caliper, rear driveshaft, and differential. The VQ40 has numerous issues (timing chain tensioners, valve slop, piston slap) and cheap parts. Do your research before buying.
