    I said heard my good fiend. I have read some negative comments. The issues have been dealt with.

    Well, I didn't hear back from the dealership, but somebody from Nissan Customer Service called me back, and arranged for my car to be repaired by a different dealership (now I found that the brakes are covered until September 2007 - I don't know why). Even if the guy from corporation promised me a loaner during the repairs, the Service Manager from the dealership didn't know anything about this. Of course there are 2 visits required for the repair. I will give them one last chance, and if nothing changes I will use a lawyer. I don't like litigations, but seems like Nissan really wants to pay more than it should for this. They already lost $40000, as I wanted to buy an Infiniti G37 Coupe, and as we speak, for about two weeks now, I have in the garage a new Audi TT. I will try to continue posting my experience
  • The titan is a beautiful truck.
    A month ago I picked up a Silver 05 XE KING CAB with 19kmi, with power windows, with an A.R.E. hard toneau cover(same color and finish), factory drop in bed liner, factory installed step rail, overall excellent condition.
    Loved the truck but I insisted on was a 7yr/100kmi extended warranty.
    I've gotten so many compliments on the truck. Anyone who disputes the GREAT LOOKS of the truck is possibly blind.

    I was originally shopping for a Frontier but after test driving a few titans. I fell in love.
    I like everything about the truck except for gas mileage, engine/exhaust noise; and the body movement could be less too.
    I know it's a V8, but if anyone knows of any mods which would mitigate the gas mileage and the noise, feel free to share. Besides trading for a Toyota!

    I didn't do much research, I went with my gut and reputation of the NISSAN brand; then I found out it was US built. I still love the tuck but I gave up on US built vehicles long ago.

    Hopping for the best

    I've been reading these post (and others) as I am looking into a Titan. My wife owns a Murano and we've had nothing but absolutely exceptional service from our dealer. The only problem we had with the car was the gas door wouldn't open. I called the service department after the wife called me and our service rep even offered to pick her up. Granted, she was only 3 miles away but it made me feel he was trying to help.
    On the contrary, I went to look at a used Titan at another dealership and asking the salesman questions was like pulling teeth. I could tell I was bothering him to no end. Of course, seeing this only made me liken to his attitude and we went on a 30 minute test drive only to have me get out and say I didn't really like the color and leave. My first thought was I couldn't wait to get back to "my beloved dealer". I guess it's just who wants to keep you happy. I did call the online sales team at "my" dealer and he's trying to locate what I want.
    I hope you guys find your true love...
  • I love my 05 Red Titan and pampered it since new. I was devastated yesterday to see 1/32" to 1/8" round blisters all over the truck. :cry: None have broken through yet, but I am sure they will.
    I see a few of you have had similar issues. Has anyone got resolution from Nissan? I used to paint cars and if this happened, the only way to repair is go back down to metal and start over. Any good paint shop will guarantee this type of issue. I am surprised Nissan won't? Any advice before I take it to the dealer?

    I took mine in and the dealer took pictures that were sent to Nissan, they said rock chips (on the tailgate!!!). The service guy was cool and could tell these chips were not rock chips, so he had the area rep look at it and he agreed there was a paint problem. Mine was all around the truck and in places it would be impossible to get rock chips. So I was given a paint shop to take it to so Nissan could get an estimate (over $10,000 in Hawaii) and I am now waiting for final approval. We have not crossed the bridge of loss of value since it will be an entirely repainted truck. They have said they would give me a loaner, but the typical loaner is an older Sentra and since the paint shop said it will be over a month I can not accept the Sentra. I bought a truck for a reason and for that amount of time I need a truck that can tow a 6000# boat, carry a 22' long one man canoe, our 3 surf boards, diving gear for 4 people (water family) or any of the other stuff I need to carry on any given day. Not sure how this part will work out.

    BTW, paint shop said they will not warranty this type of work, to extensive, so I am not sure if the "new" paint will have any type of warranty coverage or not. I actually suggested to Nissan regional customer rep that it might be cheaper for Nissan to give me a 2008 Titan as this total is going to be at least $13,000 and that is before any loss in value or legal fees fighting with me over it. Nissan did not agree, so down this road we go. Now I have noticed rust on the chrome part of the front bumper, but I just went over 36,000 miles, so they will probably say it is out of warranty.
  • I had to file a law suit, they kept saying it was rock chips that were not covered. Some were chips, but no car should have that many after 6 months. They finally settled with me after about 5 months of fighting for a about $3,000 enough to get the hood and fenders stripped to bare metal and repainted. Funny, I haven't had any "rock chips" with the new paint job....

  • I bought my titan in sept 2004. The truck was great, loved the power, design, handling, heck, I loved just about everything. What I didn't love, however, was when I got in it the second day I owned it, and it wouldn't start. Here I am, proud as can be with my new truck, and it won't start. It's imbarrasing. Naturaly I called the dealer, and they said bring it in, so when I got it started, I did. I drove my truck the hundred miles to the dealer, there wasn't one any closer, to let them have a look. They got in the truck and turned the key, and guess what, it started. So they gave it back without testing anything and said have a nice day. Needless to say, that wasn't the last of that little gremmlin. Over the years, I brought the truck back several times, still a hundred miles from the dealership, in hopes that it would duplicate. It hasn't. I called NissasUSA to complain about the problem and ask that if this becomes a problem in the future, would they be able to extend the warranty on just this one thing? They said NO!! If you can't get it to duplicate durring the warranty, then it's your problem from then on. They even went so far as to tell me that I should have thought about how far I lived away from the dealership before concidering buying a Nissan. It's too bad that their responsibility to customer service ends the day you drive off the lot. That's why I say, NOT IMPRESSED!!!
  • Your mpg is up to you. I can do 20 mpg or i can do less, the less you use the brake and keep speeds under 67 mph, you can do it. Being a poor boy these days i choose to keep my commute to job 85 miles round trip as cheep as possible. Most of trip is interstate, on hwy i keep it to 67 mph thus 20 mpg.. :)

  • I purchased a 2004 SE crew cab titan, a 2005 SE king cab titan and a 2007 SE armada. I replace the brake because I recieved the recall info, but i haven't had a problem with either. I replaced the tires at 40k miles on the 04 and 53k on my 05.I am in the air force and i work with many different people driving all of the others and all are dissapointed in some way with their truck. I have four nissans and the only way i would get rid of them is for another nissan truck. A lot of people i talk to has a closed mind about an import truck because the are faithful to the big three, but when you show the fact the titan and tundra capabilities are undisputed. I would recomment any year titan. I have five kids and three dog. I tow a lawn equipment trailer with both truck and I have no problems :shades:

    Well enjoy your Titan, it isn't going to be around much longer. With selling an average of 5K per month Nissan isn't making the big bucks on this truck and is outsourcing it to Chrysler. Imagine that made by one of the big 3.

  • After Having my '05 KC truck for a full year now, I still love it, even with gas prices being what they are. But still I must ask, How in the heck do i get better then 12 or 13 MPG. What can I do to it to get better Gas Miles??? I'd do almost anything for a consistant 20mpg. Yes I do keep my braking and speed as reasonable as i can living in NYC.

    Second problem: Over the weekend I finaly had to change a tire at 28k mi.(God damn Nail on the highway!!) 2 of my lug-bolts broke just trying to get the flat tire out. I had it towed to a place and 2 more broke when they were trying to complete the job. I have never had that happen on any car/truck I ever owned, anyone experienced that on their truck?? I'm ganna have my tires rotated this week and be prepared to have the rest pulled and replaced if they break.

  • If this is the first time you removed a tire then that would be expected. If you rotate them every 5 to 6 thousand miles used the specified torque and you won't have any problems. One of the issues is that tire companys use impact wrenches which are set very high usually above the specified torque. These trucks are made to withstand some heavy stump jumping therefore I believe it's due to overtorquing of the lug nuts. Good luck!
  • Hey all,

    Does anyone know for sure when Titan production switched from 2008 to 2008.5? I've looked around some and I haven't come across a date anywhere.

  • Hey The above statement about Ford which you have given I think you are partially right... Here in India we have a huge market for Ford.

  • My husband worked at Nissan dealership. Thus we bought a used 2004 titan king cab SE off road with tow package in 07 for a great price. love the look of Titan, love the power, and for the most part really enjoyed our truck. We have experience several of the same issues that most complain about. Transmission overheating while pulling a 5000lbs boat (thought the titan was rated for 9000lbs), rearend seals leaking, a driveshaft replacement, cracked manifolds, exhaust leaks, brake judder, and some other small issues. but this is the last straw...the passenger suicide door window just fell off and the paint it was glued to came with it. really!? we live in the northwest and really don't experience any severe weather. We don't take the vehicle off road. I'm just over the pretty and the power and can't not wait to replace this vehicle. All i see now is the book value dropping. Better for sitting in my driveway looking pretty, then my daily driver. :mad: :cry: :sick:
  • Maybe it just your truck?
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,054
    Knowing the issues with the first year (2004) Titan AND your husband working at a Nissan dealership, why would you buy one? Must have been really really cheap.

    BTW, you also need to have your IPDM replaced under recall.
  • Hi, still have same titan. Only problem was rear axle seals. Got 84000 miles on OEM tires, have only changed oil and filter, and replaced battery. I may replace spark plugs when I feel better. Truck now has about 110000 miles, can still do the same MPG as before.
