Fuel economy for this truck???

Reviewed by Cantrader
July 06, 2014

Bought a 2012 Canyon 4 door 2WD with 2.9 Lt. 4 cyl. eng. earlier this year to replace a 1995 Sonoma with 4.3 W code V6. Always thought the '95 got only mediocre gas mileage till started using the 2012 in mixed use driving. The Canyon will barely get 14 MPG!!! The truck runs perfectly, has no check engine lights on and onboard diagnosis shows no trouble codes or other abnormalities. Found the previous owner and asked him about this and he said that's the main reason he traded it in with only 12,000 miles on a Nissan. Can anyone offer any thoughts or ideas on this, or is this par for the course for this truck? Thanks for any info on this, brgrds, Dave F.
