#158 of 485 Watch Out Nissan Titan Owners !!!! Watch out
Aug 30, 2005 (12:24 am)
Hello Everybody :
PLease read on if you are a Nissan Titan owner or at least interested in knowing more about it.
I bought the car that I thought was the dream for every guy who likes power, performance and all the bells and whistles in a perfect car, and that was a 2005 Nissan Titan LE trim, loaded with all what a truck can ever have. And I Said : this is the one.
Couple months after that I started having a problem : the steering wheel started shaking when I need to apply the brakes; an immediate turn-off for me towards my car.
I took my car to the service advisor and told him in the exact word: " Sir, something weird is happening in my brand-new truck, whenever am applying the brake..." he interrupted me and continued " the stirring wheel starts shaking ? " I answered "yes".
They performed the recall and the car went back to the normal smooth drive and stop.
Just recently, I had a "close call" a "narrow escape" a "good luck", you name it.
I was driving back home on the Free-way at a speed of 50 mph and suddenly the car ahead of me came to a sharp stop which made me react quickly by applying the brakes, although it was a nice sunny dar with dry cement.
My vehicle started unbelievably shaking, the more I was applying the brakes the more my car was trembling. In less of a second I had to decide to release the brake to stop the shaking car and wheels , but had to choose either to hit the car ahead of me or a better decision is to go offroad and avoid the crash.
Eventually I did swerve off-road and avoided the crash. It happened so fast that I could NOT remember whether the ABS did kick in or NOT, and IF it did I would NOT be able to feel it because how my car was behaving. After that , all I wanted was to get back home safe and never to drive my car anymore.
There is no kind of trust in this car from my side anymore .And I hope that none of you ( Titan Owners) will ever experience an incident like this. The brakes problem just came back again suddenly without a prior notice, all of a sudden I felt I am experiencing a 9.00 earthquake, and the more I had to push on the Brake Pedal the more the car was shaking.
If this would be any concern for anybody then I am sure I would see some kind of reactions .
More and more, please drive safe and watch out how your vehicle performs and be prepared for the unexpected. My car suprised me in the most negative way, but I am NOT going to give it a second chance.
#159 of 485 Transmission Noise?
Aug 30, 2005 (12:41 am)
I've read previous posts about a transmission/drivetrain noise when acclerating/decelerating. I have a Nismo 4x4 Crew Cab and noticed an audible "thunk" when shifting from reverse to drive, or vice versa. Is this a normal noise?
#160 of 485 computer problem on 1998 frontier, 124584 miles
Sep 19, 2005 (9:55 am)
Had the ses light come on with code 0400, egr system problem. Had all parts of the egr system replaced with new except the egr valve. The light has come on again at 122 miles, question is this? Does our local mechanic or Nissan dealer required to install a repair code to remove the history code? This is the second time for the SES light to come on and now my mechanics is shaking his head and say's this never happened to him since he has been in business. Any suggestion on how to get this light to stay out? Also, has anyone replaced the EGR valve itself, the nissan dealer on Long Island insist that they have never sold on and told my mechanic that they never replaced this particular valve.

Shop around for a good body shop or local garage. If the mirror is not electric, it won't take but a few long minutes.

#164 of 485 exhaust system for '99 3.3L Ext. cab
Sep 26, 2005 (10:05 am)
I'm wondering if there are any headers available for my '99 3.3L extended cab frontier. I'm also having a hard time finding any exhaust manufacturers for aftermarket parts. Canadian distributers would be great but I'm doubtful there are any.

They will fix the breaks for free and put you on a waiting list for the new breaks. I have had my Titan for 8 mth and had it in 7 times in that time now the cat converter is out which was told is a new problem with these trucks so have them check the est system out.,
