I Have a 2004 Titan and I agree with you that the brakes on this truck could be better, But.....I have towed construction trailers with cars on them and completely loaded hay wagons and have not had a braking issue when towing and I did not have the assis. of a brake box either. When I towed the cars I went down some serious hills, It is all in the way you drive. I'm not saying that you don't know how so please don't take it that way but as long as you are smart, you will have no problems braking when towing. The contruction trailer weighs an easy 2500 lbs. and I towed my thunderbird once and my full size Bronco on it as well, so there was some serious weight there. I have also pulled my 24 ft. camper without issue.

I'm with you on the looks....It's not the best looking truck out there but giving the performance of it...I gave up the look and took the performance.
#1409 of 1475 Dash Rattle/squeek
Dec 22, 2006 (7:02 am)
I bought my 2004 Titan at the end of this past summer and love the truck. The only thing that is driving me nuts is the dash rattle/squeek that I hear. When driving while accelerating you can hear it. If you put it in neutral, nothing, neutral and give it a little gas...nothing, put it in gear and accelerate....rattle/squeek. It is def. coming from the inside, i just have not been able to pin point where? Any ideas??

Yes I have an 06 Titan and the rear shakes at 47mph & at 52 mph. I've had the tires rotated/balanced then replaced all tires and that didn't help at all. I don't know what else it could be. Has anybody else experienced this same rear end shake?

My 2004 Nissan Titan LE has 23000. I am on my fourth-set of rotars and brake pads, and computer system. Took the vehicle to the dealer and was called a "lair" without looking at the vehicle. Then one service manager said "you can trade it in and we will give you $2500 off MSRP of a new Titan." And then another service manager said "all SUV/trucks brakes make noise" I asked what highway to you travel that you hear all that brake noise on trucks and SUVs? I took my Titan to Midas and paid $795 for the required brake work that they were obligated to perform under warranty. I suspect a great lawyer would be taking on a class-action law-suit against Nissan and their brake defect on 2004 models. I am personally seeking lemon buy-back.
#1412 of 1475 2005 Titan paint problems
Feb 01, 2007 (4:01 am)
I posted this in the maintenance board also, just wanted to cover all the bases. I am just wondering if anyone is having this problem with their paint. I have an 05 SE CrewCab 4X4 Off Road w/tow package, red alert color. I noticed a few small (1/16"-1/8") blisters in the paint, some had already broken when I first noticed them exposing the primer. I did a good inspection of the truck before taking to the Nissan dealer so I would know where the blisters were and stopped counting at 20, most of them are already broken, all of these expose the primer. The dealer has not been very supportive, saying that Nissan will probably claim they are rock chips and door dings even though the location of many of them rule these possibilities out (even have some on the tailgate). Has anyone else noticed this problem? We might have to get together to get Nissan to fix this one, I will post more as my situation progresses.

A local U.S. newspaper is looking to interview buyers who recently purchased a half-ton truck and understand what factors you considered before making your purchase. If you are interested in being interviewed, please send an email to ctalatiedmunds.com no later than Tuesday, February 6, 2007 containing your daytime contact information.

How about doing an article on the 2004 Nissan Titan brake defect? And how comsumers have to replace the rotors every 6000 miles because of warping. Also, when you try to get the defect fixed you get the following statements "your a lair," "all trucks/SUVs make brake noise," "we won't honor our warranty, or "just trade it in."

Weird, never had this problem on my truck, other than the initial brake issue which was repaired by Nissan, no questions asked. Have 32k miles on my new rotors and no issues.

I HAVE A 06 TITAN CREW CAB AND HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. AFTER GETTING WITH THE DEALER TECHNITION WAS ABLE TO FIX PROBLEM BY CHANGING THE REAR AXLE ANGLE TO GET THE RIGHT DRIV3ELINE ANGLE. IF WHEN YOU HAVE SOME WEIGHT IN THE BED AND THE VIBRATION SEEMS TO GO AWAY THIS SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM. IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEM WITH THE DEALERSHIP NOT BEING ABLE TO REPAIR THIS SITUATION THEY NEED TO CONTACT TECH SUPPORT AND ASK THEM FOR THE REPAIR THAT BOB ISAM AT COOPER NISSAN IN TULSA OKLA. HAS REPAIRED SEVERAL OF THESE TRUCKS SINCE HE REPAIRED MINE. GOOD LUCK.
