#250 of 875 Re: BRAKE FAILURE CAUSES ACCIDENT TITAN 04 [accumac]
Mar 07, 2005 (3:05 pm)
My message does not reflect brake problems but it does reflect some very dissapointing issues with my 2004 Nissan Titan SE Crewcab. Had this vehicle since Jan 23rd 2005, 6500 km on it. Right now I have a vehicle that doesent have a useable four wheel drive. Axle apparently popped out of the left side of the front deferential. Two weeks ago when I made contact with the dealer and was advised that this was the first warranty claim that they received for a Titan. Parts were orderd and should be in soon. Found out today that this is a common problem with this vehicle. Even found out that this one dealer has three others with the same problem. Was also advised that they were working on a redesign of the deferential. No date provided as to availability date. Nissan appears to be pleading ignorance to the problem. On slippery roads vehicle is very unstable without the four wheel drive.
I also had problems with the tailgate. Components appear to freeze and gate will not stay up.
My off road package has rancho shocks. Three of the four are leaking.
Condensation forms above the console and water drips down.
Gas mileage is extremely poor.
It is amazing what you can get for 50K these days. Comments welcome.

DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT continue to drive the vehicle. Mine did this same thing a month ago and we were told the vehicle was NOT safe to drive. Nissan has been paying for a rental in the meantime. Its not just a matter of no 4WD its a matter of the axle can and will come all the way out and could cause you to have an accident. The differentials were released about 10 days ago, the parts for mine got to the dealer today. My truck was down for a month waiting on the new front diff, should get it back in the next couple days.

Bought an 05 a month ago, 4,100 miles. The gas gauge didn't work from the start. Called service advisor, he said probably a sending unit. I drive too much to take it in for that, I just reset the tripometer ea. fill up. Getting 17+ here in Arizona. So far so good.

I've driven my new Titan for a week now, and love it. No major or minor problems yet. One oddity; first start-up in the morning, my oil pressure reads very high, and stays there for about 5 minutes, then goes back to the middle of the gauge. The service manager said that this is normal.

I had the same problems with mine, you need to have the radio replaced with an updated version, and the door needs to be adjusted at the hinge and or striker plate to stop the door from opening the switch. Both easy fixes.

Appreciate the comment. Nissan has not yet given me authorization to rent but I have taken it upon myself to rent a vehicle. My vehicle is now parked at the dealer.
I do not know what the end result will be.
Contacted Nissan today for the third time, have yet to be provided with any details and I have yet to receive a response from anybody despite my persistence.
I fell like I am being ignored.
Other than that I love the vehicle.

You should get authorization from Nissan, or your dealer should be happy to give you a loaner or pay for a rental. I am almost on a first name basis with the local Enterprise rental agency that always supplies me with a Ford or a Dodge truck at my dealers expense. Probably about 6 or 7 different times in 34,000 miles. Face it we are a ginuea pigs for Nissan so they should at least feed us.
New question for fellow Titan owners: On cold start up in the morning or anytime after the truck has sat for a good length of time, if I rest my foot on the brake pedal when I start the engine the brake pedal will sink all the way to the floor. No problem with the braking and the brake pedal is normal after I pump it once or twice, dealer says no problem found. I find it unsettling and think it must be a master cylinder, power brake booster problem that I want taken care of before I drive out of warranty. Any one else experienced this phenom?

Have the service manager contact the district rep to authorize a rental. They did for me, cost Nissan $2059 for 29 days rental on a Ford Escape.
I got my truck back last night, dealer got the updated diffs on Monday, so they have been released.

ok went to the dealer to have a look at my wheels,and turns out that nissan sends out the wheels to another company to have them chromed and they do have a warranty. so my dealer installed a brand new set of wheels, yesss!!! also they checked the AC noise from under the dash it turns out is a "TSB" waiting on parts to have it fixed, I got a great response from my dealer service department

I got my 2004, 4x4 Titan LE Crew Cab last September as it just rolled off the truck. It had everything I could want, and more. I new the minute I saw it, I would be driving it home. Once I test drove it, I was hooked. I have 27,000 miles on it now, mostly from highway driving. It runs great...enough horses to get out of trouble quickly when congestion is tight. No rattles, radio sounds great. Not quite as good as my Alpine with 100W Infinity speakers, but close. The only problem has been the front end brakes. At about 12,000 miles often mentioned wobble occurred. A local dealer (Not where I purchased it) replaced both rotors, calipers, and brake pads, with no problem. The service (In Tampa, FL) was great, but no one mentioned any chronic problems from Nissan. It ran great until last week (another 14,000 later) and it happened again. This time they turned the rotors and replaced the pads which they said were glazed over, again with no problem, and the service was fantastic. But, now I'm wondering and waiting to see if it happens again?? And I'm worried that my warrantee will soon run out, with as many miles as I travel. Florida has a good lemon law, and I have one more strike left before Nissan gets their last chance. I'll stick with the Titan, though. Love the power and the way it handles. Love the interior and style. I just hope they can get this rotor bug solved.
