Front Alignment and Fuel Usage Nightmare
By Jumper011 on
Vehicle2001 Nissan Frontier 4dr Crew Cab SC-V6 2WD (3.3L 6cyl S/C 5M)
ReviewNissan should go back to the drawing
board with this engine. Supercharger
is good idea and helps make up for the
wimpy-6. Really bad fuel economy - 16
city/20 hwy for a compact pickup. Have
to align the front-end every 5,000
miles at $55 bucks a pop - one of the
Nissan production techs told me this
was a common problem with
the "bigfoots" as he called it,
referring to the large wheels and tires
they put on the S/C models with no
suspension modifications. Do not
expect tires to last more than 25K mi.
Best FeaturesQuick acceleration thanks to super- charger. Baywatch styling.
Worst FeaturesSignificantly improve fuel economy. Fix the front-end alignment problems. Power improvement without a supercharger
