It's official! The Million Mile Frontier has made it to one million miles! Brian Murphy of Ringwood, IL, has achieved the huge milestone of getting his truck to drive one million miles. He purchased his 2007 Nissan Frontier XE from M'Lady Nissan brand new and has cared for his truck meticulously ever since.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration, "Americans now drive an average of 13,476 miles per year." On average, Brian drives more than that in only two months. He averaged 350 miles per day during the week and drove his truck throughout the Chicagoland area for work.
He chose the Nissan Frontier for the size, gas mileage, and the safety barrier between himself and packages for work. Brian wanted a different vehicle from the typical delivery van and the Nissan Frontier met all his needs. It continued to exceed his expectations by being incredibly reliable on the road.
Brian enjoys the durability and reliability of the Nissan Frontier and considers the truck to get good gas mileage at 26 MPG, especially with the combination of city and highway miles. When asked what the key is to getting his truck to the million mile marker, he said, "Maintenance, driving conservatively, and travel speed."
The Nissan Frontier continues to be your no-nonsense, mid-sized, pickup truck designed to transport and get the job done. First produced in 1997, the Nissan Frontier has evolved to either King Cab or Crew Cab sizes and is available in five different trim levels to chose from - S, SV, Desert Runner, Pro-4X, and SL.
M'Lady Nissan has always been Brian’s place for service and care for his Nissan Frontier. It has been serviced by master mechanic Joe Rygiel, each and every time he brought his truck in over the past 12 years. Joe replaced the clutch as well as completed any other needed maintenance work. Brian always brought his truck in whenever it had an issue and consistently took care of oil changes every 10,000 miles. He always felt M'Lady Nissan Service took excellent care of him and his vehicle.
When driving and delivery is your daily job for approximately 350 miles per day, it is important to make sure you have the vehicle that will get you where you need to go. The Nissan Frontier achieved this goal for Brian Murphy!
Congratulations on driving one million miles on your Nissan Frontier, Brian!
