#527 of 875 2005 Titan Cruise control problem
Mar 23, 2006 (4:09 pm)
I have a 2005 Titan LE King cab and generally love it.
I have had it for just over a year and have 20,000 Kms on it now.
I have had a couple of problems - the stereo cut out after about 45 mins at almost full volume (I like my tunes when crusing down the highway) the dealer replaced it and all is good now.
I am having the usual poblem with the brakes Nissan is replacing them with bigger better rotors / pads at no charge.
I am also having a problem with the cruise control - when I turn it on the power on light in the dash lights up but the set light also continues to flash off and on and the cruise control will not activate. If I turn off the ignition and re-start is seems to be fine.
This has only happened 2 times in over a year and the dealer has promised to fix it whatever is causing it.
I bought the truck from Eastern Nissan in Manitoba and I can't say enough good things about them - they are great - they even came and picked up the truck, left me a loaner to drive and when they were done came and droped off the truck and took the loaner back - it just does not get any better than that!
#528 of 875 2006 Titan Better Truck than '04 and '05?
Mar 26, 2006 (7:34 pm)
I'm looking at the 2006 "Texas" Titan and really like the truck. However, the well known problems of the 2004 models seem to be working against the Titan overall. Are there any 2006 Titan owners out there that can comment on the truck performance to date?

That Ticking noise has been a nightmare for me, It started from the bottom of the engine, it was so loud that the Nissan Service Manager had to acknowledge it, but said he could not take the engine apart to find out what it was, to wait if it gets worst, then the noise moved to the left valve cover, I placed on top of both valve covers a sthetoscope and showed the Nissan mechanics the difference, they all looked at me, and said, take it to Nissan, but after getting agrevated and agrevated I gave up, this month I'm changing my oil to grade1040, maybe the engine will be less noisy, I have already documented the problem. Really the engine seems to be working fine, I don't know if I should get rid of it or keep it
#530 of 875 Another noise from my Anti-locks
Apr 02, 2006 (9:17 pm)
Please give me piece of mind! My 05 Titan has noisy anti-locks. In addition, if I spin my rear wheels in two wheel drive, the front wheels will produce that "anti-lock" noise. Now I noticed that each time I stop the engine and restart the truck then start to accelerate, I'll hear that familiar noise. Only one time and I don't hear it again till I kill the engine and restart. I took the truck back to the dealer. I took a ride in the service writers truck (same year, same model) and it made the same noises. Can anyone out there can tell me that theirs has the same querks? Let me know if your 05 does not have this problem..

I have been having the same problem since the first day I drove off the lot. No one seemed to notice it but me, until yesterday it did it and when I came to a stop and then the transmission slammed into gear when I hit the gas. It's thumping pretty good right now, but it doesn't seem as bad after it has been sitting up several hours. I'll be bringing it to the dealer tomorrow for the third time for this problem. Wish me luck

I have read your messages re: Titan brakes and replacement with larger rotors, etc. We here in BC have an '05 Titan and at around 25K km, find significant brake shuddering which worsens with higher speed braking. I have noted from other sources that the brake rotors may be too small for the vehicle and hence lead to more heat buildup and warping. How has your brake replacement gone? Improvements?

#533 of 875 Frustrated Owner
Apr 07, 2006 (8:14 pm)
Gentleman, my tolerance is wearing very low with this truck. I have an 04'Crew Cab SE, 22,000 miles on it and learned that the entire back end needs to be replaced. Good thing it's still under warrenty. I only dive city and some highway miles, but have never towed anything! What is going with this truck?? I've been thru the break issue, hissing A/C, squeeking dashboard, poor FM reception, the ill tempered automatic windows and of course the poorly designed rear seat belts. Enough is enough! Don't know if the 2006 models are any better, not sure if I want to find out.
#534 of 875 Your scarin' me
Apr 10, 2006 (8:05 am)
I just happened to do a google search for Titan and this came up. WOW....those are crazy problems. I'm looking at a Titan Crew cab 06'. Have they gotten the ticking, brake problems and everything fixed in the 06' or should I look at something else?
Any help would be great.

Oh, I would be careful to assess all of the communications out there - there are many of us with Titans with no more trouble than the owners of other pickups. Some with less.

Dear John...I have the same problem with my 2006 Nissan Titan. Did you find an answer to the issue? I currently have not approached my dealer.
