Tell your dealer he is full of ka ka. People are already getting the new brake fix. Some dealers will fix on the 1st complaint, others 2-3 times. Here is doc directly from Nissan. Your dealer is
definitely giving you a snow job big time. I'd go somewhere else for service.
Reference: WB/05-011 Date: March 16, 2005
TO: Dealer Principal, Service Manager, Service Advisors and Claims Administrator
SUBJECT: Warranty extension for “brake judder” condition involving model year 2004 and 2005 Titan and Armada vehicles.
All 2004 and 2005 model year Nissan Titan vehicles.
All 2004 and 2005 model year Nissan Armada vehicles.
Nissan has developed new brake parts, including pads, rotors, and floating shims, that will be very effective in the repair of 2004 and 2005 Titan and Armada vehicles that experience “brake judder.” These parts will also be very effective in the repair of vehicles which may have experienced the incident after an initial repair. Nissan is presently working with its suppliers to expedite the availability of these parts for use in the repair of customers’ vehicles, but the initial availability of these parts is extremely limited. Significantly greater availability is expected to occur during May, with increasing availability thereafter.
In order to ensure that all 2004 and 2005 Titan and Armada customers are ultimately able to obtain the new parts if needed for their vehicles, Nissan is extending the warranty on these vehicles for “brake judder” to 36 months/unlimited mileage from the original in service date. All other terms, conditions and limitations of the Nissan New Vehicle Limited Warranty will apply to this extended coverage. Nissan will begin mailing notices to all owners of 2004 and 2005 Titan and Armada vehicles during May of this year as parts availability increases. In the notification letter, Nissan will advise owners that the limited warranty on these vehicles is extended as it pertains to repair of a “brake judder” condition only, and that Nissan will correct the condition if it should occur at no charge to the owner throughout the extended coverage period. Sample copies of the letters will be made available to Nissan dealers prior to the mailing.
As this warranty extension is effective immediately, dealers should continue to repair all customers’ vehicles which experience the incident using the most current applicable Nissan repair procedure. For vehicles built before June 30, 2004, the correct repair is set out in Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) NTB04-066b. For vehicles built after that date consult the appropriate Nissan Service Manual. When the new parts become generally available Nissan will issue a new TSB setting out the proper procedures for making repairs with the new pads, shims, and rotors.
This warranty extension will ensure that customers continue to receive a timely and appropriate repair of their vehicles throughout the transition of production and increase in availability of the new parts. It will also ensure that any customer who may experience a recurrence of the incident after receiving a repair using the presently available parts and procedures will still be well within warranty and able to obtain the new parts as production and availability increases.

I had the same problem. The first two times I took the truck to the dealer, they did the "judder" fix. I told them that was not the problem.
After the third failure, I started lemon-law. The regional tech rep was called in. After he told me that there wasn't anything wrong, I made him go out on another test drive. That time, it failed on them.
The problem was with a valve in the power boost. They replaced the entire boost unit.
Now, I do have the "judder" problem and another problem with the truck stalling when I try to enter traffic. They told me to turn off the DVC. That works but I am not satisfied with a work around.

I took my 2004 in at 12000 miles for a similar problem. The dealer turn the front rotor and changed the pad and the problem went away. They said the rotor was out of round. But according to INFO on this board, Nissan has a better permanent fix coming in May. Take your car to the dealer and ask for a warranty claim.
#350 of 875 Bed Mat for Nissan Titan

Does anyone know where I can purchase a bed mat for my Titan. I looked around on the web and none of them has one on the market.

I currently live in Germany and my 2004 Titan has 9000 miles on it. Currently it is shuttering in the road so bad that I'm concerned about driving it. I just got off the phone with Nissan 1 and they will not replace the brakes because I currently have the vehicle in Germany this is unacceptable. And to think I was going to buy a Toyota before I left the States and now I'm starting to wonder if I should of. I'm hoping that forums like this one will get use the support we need over seas, I would hate to have something happen to my wife and child while driving the titan. They said that I could pay for all parts to be shipped to my APO (military) address and also pay for all the repairs to the vehicle and after all the bills have been paid I could submit paper work back to Nissan and if someone thought it fitting to pay me back then I could see a check in the mail in about a year. Again, if this is the way Nissan is going to treat there Nissan (military/gov/civilians) drivers than we should maybe join together and never buy Nissan Vehicles????? Thanks again and I will look foward to hearing from other Titan owners.
#353 of 875 Titan engine noise
May 25, 2005 (8:17 pm)
My Titan sounds like a diesel at idle. The noise is not as bad in neutral or park but once you drop it into gear the diesel sound gets much louder. The dealer has already done the purge valve relocation for the exhaust. The noise never changed after this was done. I have had the truck in 3 times now and the last the dealer could say is they have no idea what is causing the noise. They asked that I wait until Nissan comes out with a service bullitan, until then they can't do anything. Anyone have any suggestions as to what this could be caused by? Any help would be greatly appritiated!!

If you read the letter sent out to all nissan reps. as posted on this site, there is no "recall". They are just extending the warranty for 3 years unlimited millage after the last brake service. If you take your Titan back to the dealer they should fix the problem under warranty . As long as you're under the max millage for your warranty. My Titan had the same problem. I took it in to the dealer and they told me they can only turn the rotors and replace the pads. They told me that after the third time the rotors were turned they could apply for an upgrade rotor but until then they could not replace the rotors.This may have changed buy now. My last service was about 2 months ago. Hope you get your problem resolved !
#355 of 875 Issues,Brakes and others
May 26, 2005 (7:43 am)
Had the pulsating feeling at 12000KM about two weeks ago in the brake pedal, advised the dealer and parts were ordered. Received a call a couple of days ago advising that parts were in. Not sure what the parts are but I assume that they are as per the referenced bulletin which includes rotors. The rotors have not been cut.
I now have a noisy A/C unit. Sort of a hissing noise. I have a hissing noise when I drive between 50 -60km hr, by releasing the gas pedal it goes away. I have a burping noise when I start the vehicle, noise also occurs after the vehicle is shut of for about 5 minutes. (Sounds like a very upset vehicle)
No shortage of issues with the vehicle.
I damaged the bedliner with some cargo that broke loose. Any suggestions for repairs.
My engine / exhaust is also noisy, very anoying, even worst on Gravel road. My young son thinks that it is cool but I like a bit of quiet time.
#356 of 875 Adjusting headlights on a Titan
May 27, 2005 (9:05 am)
I had to pay a dealer to adjust my headlights. I'm sorry, but that insulted my intelligence. I would like to do this myself, as their adjustment is not correct. Help! Anyone?
