Buying this gem on Friday. Going to be my tight trail rig /commuter , then my sons truck when he starts driving. This will keep the miles off my tundra. 1999 frontier xe 5 speed v6 205k . Super clean.

Picked her up yesterday. One owner. For 206k miles , heck for even 100k miles this thing drives amazingly . Stoked. Will need a paint job. I'm thinking I'm going to diy with a high gloss single stage white. Needs a clutch prob sooner than later , but overall couldn't be happier. Let the modding begin lol

Now that I've had some time to go through it , I got a good list of what needs to be repaired on it . Nothing major at all

Oil pan gasket
Driver window crank *fixed*
Repaint
Tailgate handle
Headliner
Driver center cap
Radiator flush


And that's it. The clutch will likely need attention later on but still grips well right now , just has a low release on the pedal, which leads me to believe it's towards the end of it usefull life somewhat

Congrats, i have a 2000 frontier 2wd, 4 cyl, 5 speed. 300k miles on the clock and still runs perfectly well. Oh, i'm on the factory clutch still, these things last forever.

Also apparently the oil pan gasket has fixed itself. I guess it just needed to be driven more to "recondition " the gasket bc it has stopped leaking.
Unless it's because now you're out of oil :)

Mine seems to leak only when parked facing down hill. Doesn't leak in the garage or driveway unless I park nose town to the street. Haven't gotten around to replacing it yet but hopefully that's all it is!
