Car Talk

Expensive Motor vehicle Speak: I purchased a scarcely-used 2009 Nissan Frontier Pro4X Crew Taxi in 2010. It now has 77K miles, and I strategy to preserve it until eventually I won’t be able to push anymore. 

Is there something I can do to make the trip softer, still even now preserve the towing potential at a minimal above 6,000 kilos? – Carl

RAY: Sad to say, Carl, there is certainly not a heck of a lot you can do. 

   In purchase to have a towing capacity of some 6,000 kilos, the truck has to have significant-responsibility springs. And these springs are what give your truck that Conestoga wagon ride that you’ve got occur to know and not actually adore. If you want to devote $60,000 for a pickup, you can get both equally a comfortable ride and towing capacity. But at the 2009 Frontier’s cost issue, it is 1 or the other.
