  • I had a 2004 with utili trak, the plastic covers over the floor tracks would slide into the back of the cab when stopping and would slide into the tailgate when starting out. This was a substantial thud whenever starting or stopping. I got rid of the problem when I traded in the '04 on a '06 and the plastic covers now have built in stops so they don't slide around. The noise actually stopped when I hauled a load of mulch in the '04 and then the tracks were jammed with mulch. In case anyone is interested, the '06 is a great improvement, no brake judder, no dash rattles, the tailgate assist is wonderful and the back under seat storage is absolutely worth it!
  • Robert26 - I have a Titan 05 2WD with 18K miles and the grabbing feeling started suddenly about a month ago (jan. 06) about a day after routine service by the dealer. Only does it after driving about 10 minutes and accelerating below 40 mph or so. Up a some hill makes it worse. I took it back to dealer after about 2 weeks and 3 service techs and manager all drove it and felt it - but no solution. They said keep driving it and maybe it will get worse. It has not for last 2-3 weeks. Any progress on yours?
  • Ive had my 04 Titan in for judder FIVE times dealer has been great up til now. 1st time turned,pads ,shims ect., 2nd pads,rotors,all the way around ( so they said ) 3rd time same thing 4th turned and pads. Now they said Im dbreaking to hard when towing! Their proof all 4 rotors are blueed and I have a trailer hitch on the back of the truck. but i hardly ever tow and when I do its 3000# or less on the extremlly rear time of heavier towing the trailers have had surge breaks. Now that said and several heated discussions later dealer said Nissan would pay for the repair. My concern is they are just putting on new parts not fixing the underlying problem Would they only change the oil filter if they found metal shaving in it? And then how many times are they going to pay for the replacement of parts. If you have any advise please help.
  • I've had my 04 SE KC w/o big tow and 39000 miles in to the dealer 5 times they have done all the expected fixes pads rotors shims ect. I tow once in a great while about 3000 pounds. most of my driving is highway. The dealer says I'm abusing the breaks and Nissan is not going to pay to have it "fixed" again. what do I do?
  • Is anyone else getting a rattle under the dash while driving on the HWY? I get the noise after the truck reaches 50 mph or more.

    I think the plexiglass right by the dashboard is causing al lthe noises. While i was driving, i pressed against it and it stopped squeaking/rattling.
  • Be prepared to bring the truck back every 4 to 5k miles for brake service. I have an 04 cc LE I HAVE HAD IT IN 12 TIMES FOR BRAKES. THEY STILL HAVNT GOT IT RIGHT. EVERYTIME I BRING IT IN THEY TELL ME THEY HAVE THE FIX FOR IT. THIS IS THE WORST TRUCK I HAVE EVER OWNED. GAS MILAGE SUCKS, DRIVE TRAIN IS CLUNKING, FOUR WHEEL DOES NOT WORK, RADIO FADES OUT, POWER WINDOWS DO NOT WORK RIGHT, NOW I HAVE A LOSS OF POWER AT 50 TO 60 MPH. 46000 MILES I WILL NEVER BUY AMOTHER NISSAN PRODUCT. THERE SEVICE IS HORRIBLE. THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW TO TAKE CARE OF TRUCK PEOPLE. :sick:
  • I SUGGEST TRADING THE TRUCK IN FOR A PILE OF DOGSHIT, YOU WILL BE FAR AHEAD OF THE GAME.
  • HAVE LAWYER SEND A LETTER. THEY HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS WITH THIS ROLLING PIECE OF GARBAGE THEY CALL A TRUCK, AND THEY KNOW IT. I WOULD LIKE TO START A CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST NISSAN. THEY KNOW ABOUT THIS BRAKE PROBLEM, IVE HAD MY TRUCK IN 12 TIMES FOR BRAKES 46000 MILES 2004 CC LE. I HATE NISSAN.... :sick: :confuse: :cry: :lemon:
  • DONT BUY A TITAN THEY SUCK, I LIVE ON LONG ISLAND IN NY AND I AM NOT ALONE WHEN I SAY BUY A FORD, GMC, DODGE OR ANY OTHER TRUCK, DO NOT BUY A TITAN. THEY HAVE GREAT ADS THE TRUCK LOOKS GOOD AND SOMETIMES SOUNDS GOOD. THEY GOT ME.
    I HAVE 46000 MILES ON MY TITAN AND I AM A MAINTENANCE NUT FREAK. I HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS WITH THE TRUCK AND NOTHING BUT DENIALS FROM SMITHTOWN NISSAN. I HAVE HAD TO FIGHT FOR EVERY WARRANTEE. IN 12 TIMES FOR BRAKES. WAITING ON PARTS. NO SERVICE LOANERS, CANT DUPLICATE COMPUTER ERRORS, INTERMITANT PROBLEMS, STRANDED ME FOUR TIMES. I HATE THIS TRUCK AND I HATE NISSAN. I HAVE HAD VEHICLES THAT HAVE SOME PROBLEMS BEFORE THEY WERE USUALLY STRAIGHTENED OUT AND GONE BUY 10 TO 12K MILES. THIS PIECE OF JUNK JUST KEEPS GETTIN WORSE AND WORSE. IF I WERE A RICH MAN I WOULD DONATE IT TO THE FIRE DEPT TO LET THEM BURN IT FOR :lemon: :lemon: CAR FIRE PRACTICE. I WOULD LOVE TO WATCH IT BURN. :lemon: :lemon: :lemon:11111

    I owned a '95 Nissan 4X4 SE V6 pickup with 5 speed manual transmission for 10 years. I had very few problems with the truck and the only brake work I ever did to it was one time replacement of the front disc pads (no rotor turning necessary). Never touched the rear drum brakes. I was considering buying a new Nissan Titan, but the dealer I went to talked me out of it. It was a Chevy/Nissan dealer, and I ended up with an '06 Chevy Silverado Z71 crew cab truck. The dealer said that they took care of the most problems on the '06 Titan trucks , but the fuel economy is still worse than on the Chevy trucks by about 2-3 MPG. So far I have no complaints about the Silverado. Get about 15 MPG in city driving, and up to 17 MPG highway with the 5.3 V8 and 3.73 gears.

    Anyway, I am sorry to hear that you have had such rotten luck with your truck. Sounds like my terrible experience with a Volkswagen car years ago.

    Dude, your dealership sucks. I took my 04 XE CC Titan last month to my dealer because of a trailer harness recall and complained about a slight vibration/judder. They installed an upgraded front rotor, pad and some type of pin/bolt(there is an upgrade fix for the brake issue). I also mentioned to the service writer that my rear diff. is rusting and was replaced with the aluminum finned cover and synthetic oil; all under warranty and with NO HASSLES. My only complaint is that they couldn't find what's causing that annoying ticking noise(someday, it'll be found and fixed). I test drove the Chevy, Dodge and Ford before deciding on the Titan and have been very satisfied(If I had the extra $$, I would have bought the Chevy DuraMax 2500. But again, that's a different category). I owned a '91 F-150 XLT just prior and believe me,it had it's fair share of problems. If you're hating the truck, get rid of it and get something else that will make you happy. Follow that rule in general and you'll enjoy life more(hate your job - quit, hate your wife - divorce her, hate life - vote for assisted suicide).

    There is a site that has the TSB's for free. If you're having trouble with the A/C, brakes, windows, etc., check it out. They don't update right away but it's cheaper than paying to view them from All Data or Nissan. www.nissanhelp.com

    When I apply brakes over ice, my 05 Titan's front Anti-locks make an awful noise. They seem to be working. Nissan service writer cannot answer the question. I also noticed a similar noise from the front wheels when my rear wheels are spinning in 2WD and the "Slip" light flashes on dash. Anyone experience these noises or do I have a problem?

    Thanks,
    John

    Let's see, when the slip light is on it sounds like the truck is coming apart? Yup, that's normal, mine has been that way since day one and now 47,000 miles later is still that way. Its the ABLS activating to control the wheel spin. Now if you have VDC that's a whole 'nother noise there, that one is LOUD, startles me when it does its thing, but its prevented a major accident so I don't worry too much about it.

    ABS is noisy, I don't think I've ever seen a vehicle that had quiet ABS when it activated while stepping on the brakes.
  • I purchased a 2wd 2004 Titan and sold it last week (it had 44K miles). I let the buyer keep it 4 days to test it and have it checked out. His mechanic said that the brake roters needed to be turned, I called the dealer where I purchased it and they offered to replace it all for free. The buyer called the dealership in his town and they said the same thing so he purchased it and I assume it has been done.
    I purchased a 2006 Titan in it's place (with the tow pachage). I HAVE NEVER HAD A SINGLE PROBLEM with the 2004 and love the 2006. I hate to read all those horror stories without at least commenting on the great luck I have had so far. I really love the Titan and plan to keep one in the driveway and reccomend it. Good luck to the rest of you.
  • I have an 05 Titan LE King Cab and the backup sensors work fine - although I do find you are quite close before they activate - I suggest that you move VERY SLOW when backing up. This sounds like a good idea with or withought the sensor.

    As for the ashtray - I was also surprised to find that it did not come with one - I asked the dealer to get me one and when it arrived it consisted of a little cup-sized unit that goes into one of the front cup holders beside the gear shifter and the push/pop style lighter that goes into the driver side power port. It seems less glamorous than the rest of the truck indeed !
