Most of the country experienced heavy road construction and high heat through the summer months, leading to rough road surfaces. These can play havoc with your wheel alignment, leading to abnormal and premature tire wear. Misalignment also can cause your steering wheel to vibrate, shimmy, or appear off-center. Watch your tires, and have your wheels aligned with the first indication that tire wear is unusual.
Remember, alignments are not part of scheduled maintenance, but done on an as-needed basis. With you and your dealer’s service department paying attention to your tires and drivability, you’ll get the most wear from your tires.BACK TO TOP

ANSWER: The 3.0-liter engine is designed to operate using unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 91 AKI or higher. Regular unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 87 AKI or higher may be used on any six-cylinder model for the 2005-2007 model years, but the gasoline with a 91 AKI rating is recommended for optimum performance and drivability.
Be aware that using 87 AKI rated gasoline could lead to reduced power output, poor accelerator response, and reduced fuel economy. The effects depend on your driving habits and conditions. Should you experience any of these effects, return to using 91 AKI rated fuel.
Also note that if your vehicle exhibits heavy or persistent knocking (pinging), or if you have heavy loads or are towing a trailer, the use of 91 AKI rated fuel is required.BACK TO TOP
