Ownership Review of the 2012 Nissan Frontier SL 4.0L V6 Crew Cab Pickup

Car Displayed: 2012 Nissan Frontier SL 4.0L V6 Crew Cab Pickup
Video Description

The 2012 Nissan Frontier SL is a moderately easy truck to maintain, and a good choice for someone looking for an easy car to fix. The engine air filter is easier to remove than on other models, as you only have to disengage a few fasteners for access. Accessing the tail light is easy, as you only need to remove a few bolts to take the bulb housing out of the vehicle. Checking the power steering fluid level is easy as the reservoir is visibly located in the engine bay.

Not everything is perfect on the 2012 Nissan Frontier SL. In order to access the headlight on one side, you will have to remove the battery first. This is a more complicated step than you’ll find on other models. You will have to lower the spare tire from beneath the vehicle in order to access it. This can be complicated as the mechanism that lowers the tire can grow rusted to the vehicle over time and be difficult to turn. To access the cabin air filter, you will have to lower the glove box for access.
