    Try the BFG TA/KO tires. I have them and they seem to be rock solid. I think the new compound is 10-ply. They used
    to be 8-ply. They work good in everything but snow and ice........ :)

    Yeah TA/KOs are great, my buddy runs them. I couldn't go larger than stock so I stuck with the Bridgestones.

    Anybody know when the 2008s will be available?

    And no, I don't want to read about brake problems on a 2004 truck (four model years later).
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Haven't heard of a release date yet, looking forward to it myself. Although I'm really looking forward to the 2010 model.

  • I agree. The 2008s aren't much change from the previous years models, just a few interior changes, even Edmunds criticized it for not being competitive enough in terms of different engine options and styling upgrades.

    Think38 - Those people with previous years brake and paint problems, just need to accept and live with it; since they will all be finally solved in the 2008 models. Bottomline, they know the risks invloved when purchasing a Nissan. So if problems occur, they should live with it.

    The 2008 Nissan titan is more than changing enough to compare with its competitors. Take any of the toyota line and put it next to the new Nissan Titan trim level (Pro -4x) and then talk about how it doesn't compare. Titan or tundra????? TITAN ANY DAY!

    I know this is off topic, but I cannot resist. Every single time I drive my Frontier 4x4 Nismo I can't help but smile. Titan's little brother is nothing less than a hoot for my wife and I to drive, wherever it may be. In my mind, there is no competition. There is no "perfect" vehicle, yet this is the closest to it that I have ever known.
    Keep it up Nissan! And thanks Titan.
    Now I'll head on back to the Frontier board.

    The frontier 4x4 is definitly a good vehicle; Especially being the NISMO. Your right about there not being a perfect vehicle, everyone has there own personal preference. I used to think that the titans might have been over priced, but once i took a minute to read up a little bit on the specs i started to realize that its priced right. And you get the Nissan name which means that it will last you more than a long time. Would you say that you might would look into gettin into a Titan?

    The Titan is too much truck for my needs. If I was in need of a heavy duty hauler, perhaps pulling more than 3 tons, I'd certainly consider the Titan. My Frontier suits me perfectly, just the right fit and size. And my garage is only 10'x 18'. Being a titch over 17' my Nismo fits nicely.
    We have 4 Nissans in our family, an Access, a Pathfinder, and 2 Frontiers, all in great shape and good running order.
    They have all been very reliable, costing us very little to maintain. I believe that is the key though,to getting good long term duty out of any vehicle, proper maintanence.
    Enjoy your Titan!
  • Nissan is great and do last a long time, my Titan last 24000 miles and 30 months before being deemed unrepairable. It almost made it out of the warranty period. GO NISSAN! :lemon:

    I was merely making a snide remark that your brake problems on your 2004 truck do not need to dominate every thread in these discussions. I found the first couple posts of your experience informative, the next few dozen repetitive, then the rest down right annoying. More so when presented off topic.

    Like owning a Nissan, it was great to start, then the repairs were repetitive, and then out-right annoying especially when you have things to do and your truck doesn't work. I'm glad my points were received exactly has intended ..... I appreciate the feedback.
  • I have not owned a pickup in about 15 years, and that one was 10 years old when I let go of it.

    I am considering purchasing a 2007 pickup, half ton. I need the larger double cab, full double cab. I will need to use the back seat often for kids and dogs. I want the truck to be able to tow 7,500 pounds, perhaps a little more. I would prefer as good gas mileage as possible. I want the truck to last for years and across the 100,000 mile mark without major repairs.

    Should I wait for 2008 to see if problems with the new 2007s have been corrected?

    If I purchase this year, what would someone suggest?

    I have the 2006 Nissan Titan Crew Cab. I love my truck. I have 4 kids that go along with it and it works out great. I bought the truck with about 9,500 miles on it and a couple of months later and just over 14,500 later; no problems. KNOCK ON WOOD. My truck has been great. We just moved ourselves and load both of our trucks up many times and my truck did awesome. :shades:
  • I bought just recently a 2008 Nissan Titan LE CrewCab SWB. After having owned an 04 chevy silverado, and my brother owning 3 silverados, as well as my father's 2 ford pickups, I can say the Titan does stand up to them. I find that the 08 titan is a very well put together truck, as I have tested its hauling and towing capacity towing a 10000lb trailer with weight distributing hitch just to see what the Titan was made of. I have had no issues with any of the functionality or features of the truck. I would say that it is as well built as my 02 Mercedes-Benz SLK230.
  • Got a message from Consumer Reports that it is featuring the new Nissan Titan in the April 08 publication. It will be in the Annual Automobile issue. Should be available in 3-4 weeks.
