I've not noticed anything. Granted, a manual will always be more "snappy" simply because it's got a direct connection. I'm also assuming that F-150 was a V8. That's a huge difference. You have my cylinder pulses to soak up more fuel on throttle changes at a given RPM, resulting in a quicker spin-up (of course that could be countered by less reciprocating and rotating mass in a V6) - anyhow...it's more than likely the transmission that's throwing you.As a brand new Frontier owner, I am lovin' my truck. There IS one thing though that is niggling me and this is a lag in acceleration. From the time I press on the pedal, there is like a brief "dead zone" until it kicks in. If I don't feather it, it can cause a bit of a lurching start. Is this "normal"? I'm aware of the drive-by-wire set up.
I am coming from a manual 5 Spd. F-150 to the 5 Spd. auto on the Frontier, so I'm not sure this is a matter of getting used to??
I've seen the issue pop up on the forums, but I can't seem to pinpoint others comments to my own.
If I've missed a thread on this, I'd appreciate a link to it.
Thanks for any input or ideas.
