#1248 of 1475 Where is the national call back??

Again I am stuck
Thank you for the time you spent today trying to help us come to some type of satisfactory solution regarding our new 2004 Nissan Titan (purchased in November 2004). This note is to document in writing that we did not pick up or accept our vehicle today as we don’t feel safe driving it in its “modified” state.
To clarify, the vehicle now has had its fourth set of brakes. Per John Landers, the Midwest sales rep, the current set of brakes are actually made for the 2005 Titan but were “modified” in order to remedy the brake failure that Nissan has experienced on all of their 2004 Armadas and Titans. These modified brakes seem to be the poorest performing of all the brakes that have been installed on our truck and are unacceptable and most unlike the brake performance on the truck when originally purchased.
Although we feel we have a “lemon” vehicle, and are disappointed that Nissan has refused to remedy the problem in a satisfactory way, we appreciate your help in exploring alternative options. We just purchased this new Titan, and are now having to replace that vehicle in less than 6 months due to the manufacturer’s unsafe brake system. We have fulfilled our part of the financial contract, however, Nissan has failed to come through with a satisfactory repair to the brake system.
We feel as if we are between a “rock and a hard place” and must replace this vehicle. The tires, front end, drive train, and all joints and parts have been subjected to the severe jutter/vibration while moving. The long term damage from this can be substantial and not our responsibility. Our hope is that Nissan Corporation will accept the appropriate responsibility for their faulty brakes and assist us in replacing this vehicle. Our current interest rate on the Nissan loan is 1% and that was a major factor in our purchase of the Titan.
Thank you for trying to help us resolve this matter.

Some folks have been replacing the side rail attachments with sheet metal screws. This solves
the problem.On another Titan board someone modified the brackets on the bed extender so they
would slide over the attaching brackets, however that takes away around 6 inches on the width
of the bed extender.

Thanks for the response. Do you have the URL for the other board that you mention. I'm curious on the possible mods for the bed divider.

They are a little sensitive about posting hyperlinks to other sites. Perhaps this riddle will help: titantalkdotcom.

If you do a Yahoo search on Nissan Titan Forum you will see a few other links for talk & club that will help.

Brakes are really simple, hard to belive that you are having so much trouble with them, and that the dealer in bloomington could not fix it. Make sure also that you are not resting a foot on the brake to overheat them, that the master cyl is allowing them to "release" and the truck to freewheel when your foot is off. Sounds like possibly a master cycl problem, then you now have air in the lines which is causing a spongy brake feel. Good luck.
#1255 of 1475 Do 05's have the "Brake Problem"?!?

I'm considering the 05 Titan SE King Cab but the brake issue bothers me. Can I hear from any and all 05 owners about their ownership and service experience?

I have had the brake problem just like everyone else has had. Even had some problems with the dust plate really making racket when I turned left after the brake replacement. Yes the brakes felt squishy and they rolled a little for a few days but the pressure came back after that. I hate to hear that someone is having problems with Nissan because they have ben nothing but helpful with me. I love my truck, blows the doors off of Ford, Chevy and Dodge.
Yes gas mileage stinks. I heard you shoud start getting better after a few thousand miles or so but I have 24000 and still get 13.5. I drive pretty hard and it is pretty much 50/50 City/Hwy. I finally put in the Tornado and after three tanks I am getting 14.75. So a really good increase. I am planning on installing a K&N cold air intake and supposedly that will up it another mile or two. So I have been happy about that.
Truck is 2 wheel drive with big tow and off road package. So I would xpect some to get better without these options.

I'm going to buy a canopy for my truck. I'm looking at the Lear and A.R.E. Has anyone had any experience with either one or recommend something better? I really like the looks of the ARE but at $1600.00, a bit spendy. Then when I put racks on it it takes another jump.
