2016 Nissan Frontier Owner Comments

problem #1

The throttle on the truck will fail to accelerate then will surge forward. Other times it is as if the truck engine is trying to quit running. Today I stopped by the dealership and they found no dcts on the computer, after test driving the truck 10 mi. No problems found. But this is an intermittent problem. After this test the truck did it again going home stall then surge forward ( could do it in fwd or rev) will continue to get dealer to test by leaving truck there a few days. Just wondering if any others out there. Some say these trucks have sensitive accelerators this is not sensitive. This always happens when the truck has been stopped like at a red light when starting to accelerate again but cannot be predicted and 80% of the time it won't happen. The accelerator or the throttle body I believe is the problem but again no dtcs were found"??". (the dealership I believe will fix this they are very helpful but there may be more out there)
