I have decided to put my 2001 Nissan Frontier up for sale. I have several vehicles and I need to thin down a little. I am the second owner of the vehicle.
This is a super nice truck. It has 193,796 miles on it at the time I listed it but will change as I am still driving it. Don't let the milage scare you, these things are built tough and this one has obviously been cared for. It is loaded with all the options. V-6, Automatic, Power everything, Tow pkg, 4 Wheel Drive that works great, cruise control, and A/C that is ice cold. Tires have about 60% tread left. Truck comes with a premium sound system. JVC receiver with Polk speakers in each door. It is Ipod ready!
The vehicle's interior is super clean and smoke free. There is a couple of small tears in the sun-visor. It comes with the original floor mats as well as a set of all-weather rubber mats. Underneath of the truck is super clean also as well as being 99% rust free. Only rust on the truck is a small area on the bottom left of the rear bumper as seen in the pictures. (Slide in hitch pictured - Not included in sale)
I also have two tops for the truck. Currently on the truck is an ARE camper top with custom matching roof rack and new lift supports. I have two keys for it.
Clearcoat on the top is a little rough, but otherwise looks great! It is carpeted on the inside and has roll out windows.
The front window in the camper top leaks a little when it rains and could use some silicone.
I also have a locking ARE Tonneau cover that looks great. Paint on it is near perfect. It also has keys to lock it up.
That's over $3000 for just both tops alone I have invested for this truck.
Also included in the sale is the factory flip out bed extender (not pictured). Does not fit with camper top mounted.
I just recently replaced the valve cover gaskets because one had a small leak. It occasionally drips a drop or two of oil when parked - not bad though (oil pan gasket I believe). The brakes were replaced in the fall - ever since the ABS light comes on from time to time. I was told it was a dirty or faulty sensor. ABS functions just fine though. There is a small wear spot on the edge of the driver's seat. Other than that, I know of nothing else wrong with the vehicle aside from a few rock chips and dings hear and there. Nothing you wouldn't expect out of a used vehicle. One spot in paint is worn where camper top lid rests on the tailgate. Don't expect perfect paint but overall truck looks awesome & drives great! I would trust it to go anywhere!
Truck has a clean car fax - Accident free - Clear title in hand.
Shipping or pickup is full responsibility of buyer. I feel I have accurately described this truck, therefore vehicle is sold as/is. Feel free to come check it out before bidding. A $500 deposit is required within 24 hours of auction end. Remaining balance is to be paid in full at time of pickup. Cash or certified check. I will hold the vehicle for 14 days unless other arrangements are made. Please do not bid if you cannot pay!
Vehicle is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end auction early. Thanks for looking and good luck!

Nissan is recalling 3,065 units of the 2013 Pathfinder equipped with the CVT, due to a potential transmission fluid leak. On crossovers built from April 18, 2012 to October 3,2012 "inadequate clamping force" on the hose connected to the internal oil cooler can cause the hose to come loose and let fluid escape. A severe loss of fluid can cause the transmission to stop working properly.

The recall is the result of a safety investigation begun last September, when it was thought a recall could involve 110,000 units of the Pathfinder and Infiniti JX35. Asked for comment about how such a large number of vehicles potentially involved could end up with just 3,065 being recalled, Nissan rep Steve Yaeger told Autoblog that Nissan initiated a service campaign for the issue last year - a service campaign notifies owners to take their vehicles to the dealer for repair of "what is generally not a safety issue" - and that there was a "production improvement" that addressed the clamping issue. The service campaign included the vehicles being recalled, but the recall is limited to just those vehicles that were built before the production-line fix.
Nissan will begin informing affected owners next month, at which time owners can take their vehicles to dealers to have the hose clamp repaired. The press release below from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has more information.
The team from The Dashboard recently stopped by the Nissan Technical Center in Japan for a look at what exactly goes into creating a full-scale clay model. While automakers have been using clay bucks for decades, designers and engineers are now combining computer renderings and hand-sculpted clay models to determine how a new vehicle will look in our world. Engineers use specially formulated clay kept warm in an oven to bring the body panels to life. They then coat the clay in a thin plastic film to add body color for the final look.

By the time everything is said and done, workers may have hundreds of hours in the model's creation. So, what happens when the company no longer needs the buck? They get scrapped. Someone comes in and dismantles the whole creation. We presume that action is set to the wailing tears of everyone who had a hand in building the model. Check out the video below for a closer look.
"You're a long way from home!"
When I signed up to drive a pre-production version of the Nissan NV200 Taxi, I expected to have a higher-than-normal level of interaction with the public at large. However, while I was hoping for unsuspecting Ann Arborites to perhaps hail me down, or maybe even get a hop-in when stopped at an intersection, I didn't really think I'd be hassled in parking lots so much. And yet, almost as if all of the Dad-Joke energy in the universe was drawn to my tall, yellow ride, seemingly everywhere I parked I heard some iteration of the phrase above.
Har har, guys.
