Anyone have one???? Pros, Cons, Likes, Dislikes? Considering purchasing one....just looking for info from dog folks who have used one similarly to how I would be using one.

I don't have a Nissan truck, but I do have an Nissan Xterra. I really love it! It is a solid, well built vehicle. Very comfortable ride, great gas mileage for it's size (av around 20 mpg). Great towing my dog trailer.

Had a good friend whose fairly new (< 1 yr old) Pathfinder spontaneously caught fire from faulty electrical problem. It "went up" pretty fast - total loss as well as everything in it. His wife was driving it and basically was only able to "park it" and get out; then watch it burn. He later found out that Nissan had some previous electrical problems with some of their vehicles.

I'm not a motor head but Chevy has got some very interesting stuff coming out in their half-tons. Think available now: V8 w/ capability to run on as few as 4 cylinders, flex-fuel and over 20mpg. Also, in "08", they will have a plug-in hybrid that should greatly increase mpg. Great for Jump Shooting!!
