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.

Supposedly larger rotors coming out in next 1-2 months that
they are hoping to be the fix for the brake judder. Your service department has their hands tied at present until the new rotors are shipped. Turning the rotors is only a temporary fix and the brake judder will probably rear its ugly head again in the next
3-4k miles. 01' Chevy Impalas were also notorious for this problem as well as leaking manifold gaskets and I don't know if GM ever did fix it since we dumped our Impala in '04 for a Honda Ody.
I have a '04 SE KC 4x4, over 4k and no judder yet (fingers crossed) and only back for one TSB so far. This truck rocks.

i've had my titan in 5 times for brakes. they dont have a leg to stand on. they know it is a design flaw. no heat dissipation warps the rotors.
my radio changes volume also, even the cd. so i know its not reception.

After battling with Nissan Canada they finally advised that the deferential is being shipped. Should have my vehicle back on the road in ten days. ??????
I am having a heck of a problem with getting a rental. Thus far Nissan has committed $35.00 canadian to the cost for a maximum of two weeks. The minimium cost for a rental for a small car is $55.00 plus tax per day, in Labrador.They said that they have no legal obligation to providing any rental. Anything they do for me is being done in good faith not out of obligation. I beg to differ.
I live in a remote area where the roads are covered with ice and snoe for 5 months of the year. Most of my driving is in the country away from any town with a trailer and two snowmobiles. Not a good situation for a car.
I have rented a 4 x 4 pickup and have turned the file over to my lawyer.
I love the vehicle despite the problem but I cannot tolerate the arrogancy of the company.
I bought my vehicle from a sub dealer and they are great.

Our 2000 Impala had brake rotor problems. Also had the sub frame noise problems, never cured that. No water leaks
I will be looking at the New Titans this fall. Time to replace my pickup.
I've readin the comments on the Titan here for months.

I am looking at buying a titan truck soon. Should I buy a 2004 or 2005? Have the brakes been fixed with 2005?
#268 of 875 Re: 2004 Nissan Titan SE Mirror switch lighting [titantech]
Mar 15, 2005 (3:13 pm)
My question is. Do any of the switches have back lighting ? My mirror switch does not have back lighting nor does any of the controls on the steering wheel.
It is like driving with a blindfold on. You have to feel your away around and hope that the button that you touch dosen't eject you.
