#118 of 828 Elk Grove, CA Titan Prices
Aug 01, 2004 (11:22 pm)
Just purchased a Titan King Cab SE with Popular package with PWR captain, Bedliner, Carpets, and Mudflaps (in Smoke color) from Nissan of Elk Grove for $23,800 + $1,000 rebate (applied after taxes and fees). Out the door price with TTL, Lic, fees, and rebate was about $25,100. I'm very pleased with this truck and deal. It's about $300 hundred under invoice, so that was perfect for me (although I'm sure it's possible to get an even better deal as the 2005's start to roll in).
I drove the F-150 XLT before the Titan, and I was not sold on it's performance. It has a smooth ride, but the build of the interior seemed a bit lacking. Plus, the amenities that the Titan offers are a lot more robust (exhaust sound on the Titan is MEATY too).
If you plan to buy a Titan in the Stockton/Sacramento/Modesto area, make sure to give Robert T. in internet sales a call first. I conducted the whole deal over the phone (took a few calls back and forth), and once we agreed on the price, it didn't change once I arrived at the dealership (I live in Stockton). Honestly, one of the easiest car buying experiences I've had. Make sure to give them a try on pricing!
#119 of 828 Does XE has power package?

Does XE has power windows and door locks?
Can you get those as an option pack?
I just can't believe even now a day, I can still see new cars/trucks that don't have power windows and locks.
I think even a base model should have those features.
#120 of 828 When will the 2005 Titans be available?

When will the 2005 Titans be available? Want to compare 04 prices with 05 prices. Why pay relatively the same price for an 04 if you can buy an 05? More negotiating power I suppose.
#122 of 828 Titan SE 4WD CrewCab
Aug 09, 2004 (8:25 am)
Went out and test drove every "large" truck on the market. Tundra, Dodge 1500 Quad, Chevy, Ford F150, etc. Then I test drove the Titan and I felt like I was in a sports car. What pickup. The extra features and comfort (in the captains chair) are out of this world. Got the Rockford Fosgate + Capt., Bed Liner, & Bed Extender for 28020 which was about $4000 under invoice (32410). Think I got a decent deal... probably could've done better if they didn't have to order it (or I was willing to drive to CT to get it).
Anyone know where to get the aftermarket running boards?

that's only true for the bed size though.
Titan has more space for the driver.
#126 of 828 Just leased Titan

The deal I got is this. $229/mo for 39 mos. 12k miles/yr. This is for an XE 4x4 King Cab with the XE Preferred Package and floor mats.
The dlr here (Quirk Nissan in Quincy MA) is taking $5,000 off the MSRP on all XE & SE Titans regardless of cab size.
Love the smoke exterior color and I like the fact that the interior isn't a solid sea of black. Perfect blend of color schemes inside and the materials do not look plasticky at all.
The base stereo w/ 6 CD changer is plenty powerful enough if you're not an audiophile. The speed sensitive auto volume control is a very convenient feature to have.
I can make do w/o power windows but not having power locks is inconvenient. It's a stretch to reach over to the door on the other side if you need to unlock it to let someone in. However, for $229/mo, I am willing to forgo the power locks because the price of the truck would increase significantly since you can only get the PL as part of an option package.
The back seat is fine for the kids. Get the crew cab if you need to fit adults back there.
The bed size is just right for the weekend trips to the Depot. I can fit a 4x8 sheet of plywood back there with the tailgate down.
The lighted radio face annoyingly reflects back onto the rear window.
It just fits into my garage.
The engine is strong across the entire powerband. Plenty of power and combined with the 5-spd AT makes for a very smooth driving experience. Personally, I love the exhaust note. The handling is outstanding for a truck. Like our Pathfinder, this thing drives like a car.
I wonder if the fit & finish is on par w/ our '01 Pathfinder LE. One of the sunglass holders will not shut w/o having to simulatenously hold the release tab in while closing it.
The center storage console is huge and very handy. The standard front seats are fine & comfortable. The material and style is attractive and the ctr console folds up to act as a 3rd seat in front.
I wish it had a rear window defroster. It would come in handy for those ice storms we get during the winter up here.
The styling grows on you. I didn't particularly care for front when I first saw the truck from the intro at the NY auto show. It grows on you and I am really pleased with it.
Like our Pathfinder, I wish Nissan would not charge extra for the door ding guards.

I doubt I'll have to 'Move over to the right lane'. A Ford with a 10" lift doesn't have the horsepower left to turn the wheels to catch up to my Titan. Seriously, this topic is for Titan experiences. Stay over at the Ford topics if you are looking to flame. And yes, I am a male Titan owner. I traded in my big GMC for an UnAmerican pickup. C'mon bro, go drive your "tough guy" truck and leave it be.
