Have the same problems 1800 miles Dealer said no parts. I am on a list for repair maybe as long as three months. Said that they have a list of 75 trucks ahead of me. Now after I got back my truck the ABS,Slip,Break,4X4 Light came on on the dash.Brake pedel went to the floor. then service engine light game on and speedodometer does not work. Parts will be in in one week. Nissan would not overnight the parts to dealer. Plus i want to get some items from me titan and found that both driver side door have been scratch down to the metal.

If you have the utility bed liner, you'll notice that the two tracks in the bed are covered by a plastic/rubber shield. Often, if you come to a stop, they'll ride forward and smack the bed (just behind the cab), creating a disconcerting "boom" kind of noise (at first I thought my bed was coming loose).
The noise I'm talking about is coming from the front driver's side, and I'm now thinking it's actually something underneath, at or near the front driver's side wheel. What it is, I can't fathom, as I CANNOT reproduce the sound by rocking the vehicle - it only happens irregularly when driving over a bumpy (not rutty) surface when the front wheel is leaving the bump. In other words, when the front wheel has very little weight on it (or is actually airborne for a millisecond). At that time, one hears (and feels) a clunk.
Then there are a host of other body and dashboard noises...
Yikes. What's happening to the Titan I loved so much?

I don't know what's happening with your bed, but I had the squeak noises in the DASH. When I put pressure on the dash just above speedometer, the noise stopped. So I bought some velcro, Yes, velcro, and popped up the dash where the noise was coming from.Where the plastic "male" ends of the piece I popped up fit into the dash, I stuck the the fuzzy side of the velco to and popped the piece back into place. Absolutely no sqeaking since. Sure beats dropping my ' 04 Titan off for a day or two.

Has anyone turned their truck in yet using the Lemon Law (Texas). I love my truck, but enough is enough with the break issue.

It took me forever to figure out what that thunk was. It was the track-rail covers on the floor of the bed sliding forward when I hit my brakes. The 05 Titans have a stop on the end of the cover to stop them but I just cut a piece of sponge and put it between the rail cover and the cab end of the bed and fixed the THUNK.
I just had my rotors turned for the second time and the dealer said on the third time they would replace the rotors and the front and rear pads.
I LOVE MY ARSE-KICKING TITAN!

I've had the same brake problems as most of you out there. Replaced front rotors, pads, mounts, at 8,000 miles, again at 22,000. I also have some transmission slippage under power from time to time. I've had enough. Trading in for fuel economy and reliability with a Tacoma. Love the Titan's power and interior room but I won't be stuck with a problem waiting to happen once my warranty is gone.

I get close to 20 mpg highway, not interstate, in my 2004 Titan. I have 15,000 miles and it runs great. I had a 2002 Frontier King Cab that got less mpg and was underpowered.

I have 31,000 miles on my 04 and heres the problems I have encountered so far.
1. control module failure 30,000
2. brakes to be replaced the first week of august
Other than that its a great truck, also the fuel mileage on a recent trip of around 1,300
miles the gas mileage was 16.4, not great but I didn't buy for economy did I.
I just started pulling a travel trailer and it does OK pulling but here the mileage really sucks.
What really makes a difference to me is the service I get from the Dealer, OUTSTANDING. nothing but praise for them.
