    I dunno about "light years" once the new one rolls out with the diesel in MY10 it'll be in the running for top honors.

  • I agree, "light years" would be an understatement. Nissan Titans would be a much greater distance behind. Oh God, Nissan trying diesel, Top Honors for most defective truck, just like everything else Nissan tries to debute. Nissan should actually try engineering a vehicle prior to its release versus making customers go through the nightmare after they bought a vehicle while Nissan is trying to fix defects during ownship.

    Razor, when are you going to stop your constant bashing? Anyone looking at a nissan msg on here has seen your posts, as you've spattered them all over, move on already. Get it?

    -mike
  • Mike, its ok; you can't handel the truth.

    When are you going to realize that if you stop backing a written warranty it is violation of federal law. If you produce a brand new vehicle that gets repaired over 20 times, that is not a quality product. If you release a vehicle with a brake defect, and than only provide 36 month, 36000 mile solutions versus life time solutions, you should be held accountable for your actions and decisions. If you get a vehicle with electronic issues, and hold it for 3 days, then say "unable to replicate", and the vehicle brakes down on the next use you should be held accountable. If you elect to try to get a customer to "trade in" a vehilce versus fixing the vehicle they already purchased you should be held accountable. If you state to your customer "all brakes on SUV/trucks judder, your vehicle has no problems," only to take a vehicle to a real professional and see the warped rotors than you should be held accountable. If you fail to reprogram the vehicle after replacing the computer, and then blame the customer you should be held accountable. If you fail to repair the brake system after 4 attempts of replacing the brake pads and rotors you should be held accoutable. If you fail to repair the electrical issues after 4 attempts, you should be held accountable. If your product leaves a customer stranded on more than one occasion, out of cell phone range, in the middle of no-where you should be held accountable. Bottomline, Nissan produced a defective product, would not fix it properly, lied and deceived me, broke federal law by not honoring a their own written warranty, and than tried to extort more money out of me!>

    People that are researching vehicles should know of other experiences prior to the purchase of their next vehicle because the pruchase goes beyond features and price; especially when lives depend on the proper safety and fuctioning of vehicle and ethical dealings of the manufacturer and their independently owned franchises. Obviously, in my situation it was more than one dealership and numerious visits, so the problem is not an isolated incident. Which is the great thing about these forums, people can read the nightmare I had to go through with Nissan and weigh that in their decision prior to the purchase of the vehicle. Or like in your case, ignore all the unethical behavior and violation of law, and reliablity concerns and just say "that won't happen to me."

    The point I'm making is you are shooting yourself in the foot. People reading these message boards have already seen your posts and either agree with you or don't. The only thing you are doing by constantly posting in the SAME DISCUSSIONS is breaking up the flow of the boards.

    You can be upset and post about how Nissan has wronged you, I only ask that you post it 1 or 2 times per thread on here, not EVERY SINGLE POST.

    By the way, if you've read any of my posts, you'd know I did in fact have the brake issues. At 3,000 miles on my 04 Armada the rotors were warped, Nissan replaced them under warranty with the upgraded rotors, pads and brackets. It has then been fine til I wore out the pads at 30k miles and at that time resurfaced the rotors which had pad deposits and new pads put on. Again under warranty, no questions asked.

    I guess I'm just lucky. I also tow a 6,000lb boat trailer and will be towing a 9000lb boat trailer with confidence this summer with it. Again I must just be lucky with my 2004 as well as the 3 dealers I have delt with (1 the original selling dealer, and 2 different repairing dealer)

    -mike
  • Lucky you. Glad to see Nissan discriminately applies warranty standards; no questions asked in your case and lies and deception in my case. What should make you a perferred customer that your vehicle has less defects than mine? Obviously, you happy with Nissan because your on the other end of the spectrum in terms of Nissan policy. Now, what would you be saying about Nissan if they put your life needlessly at risk, told you they wouldn't honor your warranty, and the vehicle leaves you stranded mutliple times, and your taking it in every week for repair, 75 miles one way, to get it repaired, and mutliple times to get a single repair done correctly.

    I'm not saying you are right or wrong, I'm just saying that limit your posts to 1 "nissan did the wrong thing for me" post per thread. If people ask you for more info then by all means respond, but it seems you just keep repeating yourself over and over IN THE SAME THREAD. Trust me, I had a Ford Escort where the AT trans went bad and they never did the right thing for me. I repeated the story for any that would listen, however I didn't make it a PITA for folks to read a board by reciting the same thing to the same audience over and over.

    -mike
  • I had an uncle named Mike, and he was annoying too. He drove a 1981 Ford Escort, and worked at a Grocery store. It was a 3 speed automatic, 1.6L with 120 horse power and matching torque. Its probably working better even today than my 2004 Nissan Titan. Did I mention that in my previous threads? Does being a thread police come with a badge?
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    No badge, just common courtesy.

    -mike
  • The question was rhetorical and did not require a response. But, hey, that $3000 you saved on your 2004 Armanda because of the brake defect could buy you a badge, and you could even get it engraved "Thread Police."
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Sorry but after being here since 1999, I hate when people lack the common courtesy to others in the forums. Is this too much to ask of you? Obviously it is.

    -mike
  • Did you want the date engraved on your Thread Police Badge, too. Serving Edmunds forums since 1999. Hey, Nissan is offering discounts on 2006 NIssan Altima engine burning vehicles. Maybe there is a few out there on lots that still have not been recalled that you can save a few bucks on. Oh well, if you get burned inside, you saved some money.

    I have been here since 1999 with the badge. Calm yourself. Got it?

    I'll have my badge shortly :)

    -mike
  • Got it. What would you recommend? Seeing how I have to replace my current truck. How do you like your Dodge?
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Don't be so disruptive! If someone posts and specifically says "do you have a problem with Nissans" then let her fly as a RESPONSE to a specific question. But to just go randomly posting all over your story multiple times in the same thread is not what this community is all about.

    -mike
  • Mike, you were asked to calm down. If you don't like my post than don't read them. Actually, your the only one that has said that, and your upset because you worship Nissan, whereas I have had nothing but trouble with Nissan in the last two years. But thats a good thing about this forum you can present your prosepctive and I can present mine. Then the other readers can make up there own minds.
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Actually this is my first Nissan ever. Now if you asked me about Subarus.... One might think I worship them. Owned quite a few of those, even met the CEO a few months ago.

    Anyway to answer your question as to what to replace it with, my vote would be the GMC/Chevy 1500 or 2500HD, they are my second favorit trucks out there. I'd get it with the Isuzu Diesel engine (Duramax) great engine and allison transmission.

    Check to whom my post 76 is in reply. You were instructed to calm down, not Mike.

  • It takes two to argue, and read the rest of my message.
  • KCRamKCRam Mt. Arlington NJPosts: 3,516
    You made your point, Mike made his. You had two bad Nissans. Let it go. There is no need to repeatedly say the same thing over and over. You obviously disagree with Mike, and that's fine. But there is no need for you to continue this debate.

    I hope in the future they make a turbo-diesel Titan to compete with the Chevy's/GMC duramax and such. They need to do it. Maybe toyota will come out with one too. We all need more reliability in all makes............. :)
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Yeah apparently Toyota has liscenced or contracted with Isuzu or GM to get the Duramax in the toyotas. Maybe we'll see it in the Titan/Armada too.

  • We all need more reliability in all makes.............

    Most definitely!

    I have had brake problems , with my nissan at about 15000 miles. I took my vehicle to the nissan dealership and fixed it no problems their. they replaced rotors and pads under warranty. they also told me they will cover any brake problem under warranty for 100000 miles. So I guess time will tell I have been very satisfied with the warranty work that has beened performed. But I be upset if I broke down multiple times and had to go 75 miles one way to the shop I probably figured I need to trade out of this one and get a different truck because the last one must have been a lemon.
    but to continue to rant about the samething over and over is like beating on a dead horse , or like argueing with a fence post ,it accompishes nothing just my 2 cents :sick:
  • rcsportyrcsporty Posts: 3
    so now you are hateing your nissan , my question now is what are you driving now ? I know as much as you hate your nissan you must have got rid of it. :P
  • mick14mick14 Posts: 30
    That's not the point. What we need is more of a choice when it comes to choosing. More options. The reliability is already there in Nissan. :)
  • I have not yet purchased my new vehicle since the buy back process takes some time, should be finialized next week. I was awarded repurchase through the BBB arbritration process. I am considering purchasing a Toyota Tundre Crew-Max when they come out. Perferred the looks of the TITAN but this time I'm putting reliability over appearance, after the nightmare my TITAN put me through.
  • Right, all it needs to do is operate during the test drive, and then the 3 days it takes to make the contract legal, and then the reliability is good to go! But personally I hold a higher standard, just my opinion.
