i own a 2005 nissan titan with 58k, ive had stock rotors replaced twice and had each set turned 2 times, once again the rotors have over heated and warped, i do not tow a large trailer and have checked for the calipers hanging up, i like everything about the truck except for the brake issue, if this latest remedy does not repair the issue i will have a 2009 toyota 4 dr 4 whl dr in place of my titan. what ive decided to do is purchase a set of EBC vented and chamfered dimpled drilled rotors along with EBC organic 7000 series greenstuff pads. i hope this work, any comments on this guys. P.S. nissans customer services sucks #&$*

I have a '05 CC Titan. At 300 miles, I changed the pads to ceramics cause I couldn't stand the amount of crud that the stock pads left. I may have stumbled onto something as I have never had a brake issue other than the rear pads going south at 24K miles and the dealer wanting to charge me for a regular maintenance item.

I don't own a Titan, but didn't Nissan re-engineer the front brake system in the Titan? As I recall, problems like yours were common, so they worked a TSB. It *may* be NTB04066. It doesn't mean that the fix is warranted, but if it involves new rotors and calipers, you may be able to work the fix at home. Just a thought. Good luck -- I'd be upset too.

The brakes were fixed via a TSB. My ’05s warped after 1,500 miles, but after the TSB they never warped again, even after towing. In ’08.5 MY, Nissan beefed up the suspension and brakes big time with larger calipers and huge rotors. I haven’t had any problems on my ’09 and the brakes are solid!

When you say "my peddle is worse now that before" - can you give a little more detail - be as specific as possible - is it that you push down further to get braking power?
Sounds to me like it needs another bleeding but tell me more specific details about how it brakes
#611 of 761 Fog light question

I'm the proud owner of a new 2009 Crew Cab SE Frontier. Now I've found out that Nissan will not sell the driving (fog) lights as an accessory. Looking at a Toyota Tacoma, the lights look identical to the ones I saw on the top of the line Frontier. Would Toyota fog lights fit on my Frontier?
