It looks like not much has changed. What did they do just add wood paneling, guess to upgrade just buy the wood dash kit from Ebay. Personally, I like the 2007 Toyota Tundra better, looks like a better all-around product. Tundra has a better brake system; the rotors are bigger and designed for a large truck so you won't keep getting those warped rotors and worn brake pads like on Nissan Titan. Also, the hauling power is better, with the 5.7L engine your hauling 10,500. And the control are driver oriented for better viewing. My guess is Nissan will lose market share to Toyota, especially if Nissan can't get the customer service issues straightened out.

PS: Since your comments don't concern the 2008 model, please keep them in the Titan compaints/problems thread instead of this thread which is to discuss the new 08 Titan.
Jeez, some people just don't get it do they....
Jeeez, some people are brain-washed huh? Does Nissan tell you that garbage, like the truck is actually smaller but feels bigger. Ignore are parts defects, and treat those customers like garbage, and lie to them and break federal law buy not honoring warranties. Who cares about the lives that are at stake, its all about out bottomline.
I had brake problems, I knew that about the Japanese full size trucks going in (Toyota had the same problem it's first year of the Tundra/Sequoia).
Nissan fixed my truck's brake problems, Larger Rotors, Pads and Caliper Brackets. I tow large loads (9,000lb boat trailer, 6,000lb car trailer) and since the brake fixes, no issues.
No one has "brainwashed" me into liking my truck, heck I had a deposit on a Suburban before I even looked at my 04 Armada.
Just because YOUR PARTICULAR dealer isn't helpful, doesn't mean all of them are not helpful.
Try to explain that then?
See the difference between you and I is this, I am posting about MY OWN EXPERIENCE, not making widespread generalizations about the vehicle as a whole, the company as a whole or all their dealerships as a whole.
What exactly did I lie about???? What false statements have I made??? NOW I'M MAD! I never personally attacked you or said that your particular vehicle doesn't have a problem (as I can't vouche for something that I haven't seen) and I never said that Nissan was or wasn't treating you properly, as I don't have all the details.
I simply stated that your comments are not relevant to this topic as they are about a different model year before the brake issues were address. Have you even researched the 08 model to see if they have the same brakes as yours?
I'm done with this conversation, as once you start making personal attacks as you have, I have no time for your antics.
As far the relevance to this topic area. Why would you buy a 2008 Nissan Titan, if Nissan doesn't even back previous years model by honoring its warranty. If a decision comes between protecting your life by repairing defects or saving the company bottom line (profit), they choose profit. People should know that before purchasing their next vehicle.
I think I would trust a Nissan over any American truck.
Please, don't buy a Nissan and leave us alone!
Seems like the guy is unstopable even being told so by Hosts.
Or better yet .. inaudible
Really feels like a big Outback. I am not sure what would need to be done to get the IRS into the Titan, I bet it could be done, although the frame in the rear section may be different.
The auto-load leveling suspension is great. I'll grab some pics next weekend with the 34ft Cigarette Boat triple axle trailer on it when I pick it up. Hoping that the 9100lb towing capacity is enough for it.
I read many technical articles, most of them on "tirerack" about different tires and my personal conclusion was there is no big difference between different tires, of course we are not talking about formula-1 or anything in that category. Even comparing normal all season snow/mud tire to pure snow tires, the difference is not much.
I don't doubt your experience with Revos, but could it be you impression is partly because these are new, compared the ones you replaced, which were obviusly old. My point is, let say you had old Duler and replaced them with Conti's, would you notice a good improvement?
The reason I am asking this questions, is because
my personal experience with Conti's are very good, except I cannot compare with anything else yet. On the offroading trip up in mountains in CA, lots of snow and mud, I never had any problem. Recently in Texas on a loose gravel, again no problems.
to be 8-ply. They work good in everything but snow and ice........
And no, I don't want to read about brake problems on a 2004 truck (four model years later).
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.
Keep it up Nissan! And thanks Titan.
Now I'll head on back to the Frontier board.
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!
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 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?
