2012 Nissan Frontier 4x4 PRO-4X Long-Term Long-Term Wrap-Up
Our last few weeks in the 2012 Nissan Frontier were just as busy as ever while we took care of some last-minute maintenance, repairs, and testing a new set of tires before having to say good-bye to Elvis.

Nearly 2000 more miles were added to our Long-term Nissan Frontier during the hot September month. It was toted out to desert for COTY testing, it hauled lumber for another home project, and took another visit to the dump.
