Kieth I couldn't be happier with the truck. 2004 Titan 4x4 LE with crew cab, black (Galaxy) with chrome trim, tan/gray leather interior, fully loaded except for the NAV system and XM radio. MSRP was $36460.00 includes big tow package, Full Utli-track system, and NISSAN logo floor mats. I paid $31000.00 for it cash out the door. Beautiful truck with the black/chrome/leather combination. Don't mind the extra time it takes to keep clean.

Sounds like a really cool Big Boy Toy. I have always owned Black and I have thought it was worth the trade off. Being extra work to keep looking good but looks better than anything else when you do. I have to admit though I am thinking of purchasing a red alert one this time they look good too. Getting $5460 off msrp is a great price so you must have some pride in your negotiating skills. That is a much better feeling than that I was a sucker feeling. I have made an an offer of $5400 off $33800 and they have not accepted yet. Thanks for the information.

There wasn't too much negotiating going on. There was a promotional $1500.00 cash back offer at the time, which I wasn't sure I would get as we weren't going to finance the truck, but they did include it. It was in September and I told them I was considering waiting until December to take advantage of any year end sales of the 04's but he told me they weren't expecting any closeout deals because the truck was too hot and they were moving them off the lot as quick as they could get them. I gave them a number, and we each countered about twice. It was easy and smooth negotiating. I basically reached their bottom line and it was up to me to bite. The truck is so sweet, I knew it would be gone the next day if I didn't take it,and it was all I could have wanted for options and I didn't feel like ordering one. My girlfriend was there looking at the Armada's when it rolled off the truck, and had them hold it for two days until I could look at it. I knew right away I wanted it before I even cranked the engine
#315 of 875 I got the 'permanent' fix on my brakes
Apr 05, 2005 (2:26 pm)
I took my titan in today for another set of brake pads. This is my third time of spinning the rotors and pads. I only have 6500 miles on my truck. They call and tell me good news that they replaced the rotors, front and back pads, and did a brake pedal check and adjustment. This is supposed to be the permanent fix. I am only the third person in town to have this done. I will post and let everyone how they feel. Has anyone else had this done?

I just took my 2004 SE Crew Cab in for its third brake job, same problem, rotors warped. I just got word that it's done, and that they used the new brake kit from Nissan. We'll see. Overall I like the truck. The engine is great, and just jumps to life. There are some little squeaks out of the dash, and there is a flapping against the back wall of the cab. Some other little minor things, but overall, I like it (and it looks so much better than anything else on the road!)

"and there is a flapping against the back wall of the cab."
Ever heard of axle wrap?
#318 of 875 Problems worth it?

I have been following the posts about the Titan for a few months now. I am wondering if the problems and the dealerships response to those problems are worth the truck. For those of you out there that have the Titan, knowing what you know today, and the experience that you have had at the service department would you still buy this truck?

I also concur. Have been driving nothing but pick up trucks since 1978. All have had some little problems, some worse than others, but this truck is one kick arse vehicle. Even if gas goes to
$5.00 a gallon. Different strokes for different folks. Take one for a test drive, then make
your own decision. Test drove them all. Titan put the biggest smile on my face and earned my business even though I had to drive 40 miles to get it, and yes, the drive for service is a little inconvenient, but all things considered, (IMHO,) still worth it.

I don't know.
I have had some serious problems with the truck that I have not seen mentioned elsewhere. For example, I stubbed my big toe when I was climbing up the ladder to get to my garage door opener to push the "smart button" so I could program my Homelink. That would not have happened with the Silverado because it does not have a homelink.
Another problem occurred the first night I drove the truck. A huge rectangular, orange pumpkin appeared in the back window causing a major leap in my pacemaker activity. The pumpkin turned out to be a reflection from the fabulous stereo. Now at night I just assume there is a full, rectangular moon.
The stereo has caused some amount of grief. I walk around with a constant smile after driving the truck. I am married and not allowed to smile. I tell her the smile is the joy of being near her. I am afraid to tell my wife that it is the stereo that is making me smile. The subwoofer unit is under the drivers seat. Crank the sound up and I am one happy dude. If that seat could cook I would dump the wife and marry the seat.
There are more problems but not nearly as significant as these. Would I buy another Titan. Absolutely but not until the subwoofer goes out and then the new Titan would have to have one.
