Frequently Asked Questions Ask APW
How much will new mirrors cost on a Nissan Frontier?
Answer: Prices range anywhere from around $36 to around $193, depending on the type, quality, and quantity of the mirrors sold. Nissan Frontier mirrors can be electronic or manual, folding or non-folding, and heated or non-heated. They can also be sold either individually or in sets of two.
What are the advantages of heated Nissan Frontier mirrors?
Answer: Heated side-view mirrors are useful when the Nissan Frontier is exposed to freezing temperatures. A heating mechanism can be activated from inside the truck to prevent side-view mirrors from fogging up and ruining visibility. They also make the mirrors easier to maintain by preventing the build-up of ice, which may damage the mirror. However, with all other things being equal, heated mirrors are more expensive than non-heated mirrors and are not recommended for warmer climes.
What modifications can be done to the mirrors on a Nissan Frontier?
Answer: An aftermarket secondary rear-view mirror can be purchased and attached to the existing rear-view mirror. This secondary mirror is adjustable and useful for monitoring children in the backseat. Another modification is the installation of blind-spot mirrors on the corners of the side-view mirrors. These small round concave mirrors widen the field of vision even more, allowing the driver to track overtaking vehicles. Finally, tinting the mirrors prevents reflective glare which may momentarily blind the driver. Some Nissan Frontier trims have auto-dimming mirrors.
What's the difference between power Nissan Frontier side-view mirrors and manual side-view mirrors?
Answer: Power mirrors are standard in many Nissan Frontier trims. These can be adjusted electronically at a push of a button from inside the truck. Manual mirrors have to be adjusted by hand. Most Nissan Frontier mirrors, whether manual or electronically powered, can be folded completely so they won't get hit by passing motorists while the truck is parked.
