it's slow at work today - thus why i am able to reply here a lot faster than usual (our a/c is broken too - and we're in the northeast! 90+ degrees and humidity up the wazoo!) talk about putting the pressure on our customers
honesty is the best way to go - its easier to remember the truth than lies (as my manager likes to say!) the titan is a great truck, and the way he mentioned the issue to me, it seems as though its just a pulsation versus the brakes failing completely. Like i said, i havent personally heard of people complaining about it (to me at least!) but i'm not in service.
the 2006 models (which should be out in a few months i bet) should hopefully have that issue fixed! Nissan kind of rushed the opening of the canton plant and didnt have everyone trained and thus the quality issues. they are working hard to fix those problems (they brought in 200+ engineers from japan to oversee the changes). otherwise, i think the titan is a great truck! hopefully you'll think so too! (again, after the brake issues are fixed)

Hey, I'm in Northern VA so it's kind of moist here as well!!!!! My lab refuses to go out unless I force him. Fortunately our AC is doing just fine (knock on formica).
I think I'll wait until 06. I really like the Titan. Moreso than the Tundra. I'd like to go look at one this weekend but I'm afraid I'll be descended upon if I go (I'll go anyway). Hopefully the dealer will treat me right so I'll come back later when I'm much more serious. I'll level with them up front --- see how that goes. It's funny, when you say you'll come back, they just don't believe you but I guess I can understand why!

FFV stands for flex fuel vehicle. What it means is that the car can use straight gas or a blend of gas/ethanol or gas/methanol -- "alternative" type fuels. The vehicle's fuel computer "knows" what you're putting in it and makes all the necessary adjustments. That's the way it was explained to me anyway. This isn't something particular to Nissans - other cars have it too.

if you open the drivers side door, on the pillar there is a sticker - on there you will find the manufacture date (month/year) as well as the vehicle weight, ratings, etc. it will be on the lower part of the pillar. it should be towards the top of that little sticker as well
let me know if you can't find it!

Do you know after what date the factory began installing the Technical Service Bulletin brake fix?
