#584 of 875 Question: Old Titan's reliability versus New Titans
Jan 16, 2007 (6:07 pm)
I was wondering if the latest Titan are having many issues, my 2004 Nissan Titan LE 4x4; has had the brake rotors replaced 3 times, the body control module replaced 3 times, the passenger door handle has broken off, the over head light has been replaced, and a steering wheel control switch replaced. I am currently seeking lemon buyback, and was wondering if I should seek the buyback or replacement. I like the design of the Nissan but these problems are somewhat difficult to resolve. I mean last time when my BCM tripped and left me stranded without the ability to put the vehicle in park and remove the key from the ignition; tt was taken to Nissan, and given back to me "unable to replicate fault." Then of course on Christmas day, I was stranded again ruining my travel plans, and this time the instrument cluster lost power and I was unable to get the vehicle out of park, but the engine would turn-over. Of course they had to acknowledge the problem and towed it back to Nissan to fix it. But it frustrates me with all the repairs, but equally frustrating is trying to get Nissan to fix it. My Nissan right now, has a tire pressure sensor fault, jittering at highway speed, jittering brakes, and a slipping transmission with only 22000 miles on it. I envy those listing that say they are not having problems with their Nissan; and I haven't expected a prefect vehicle but these faults exceed reasonable expectations.

The 2005+ models have far better fit-finish in addition to reliability. I know I'm looking forward to the 09 or 10 model to replace my 04 when the time comes. For now I'm dealing with the small minor issues on mine, and my dealer has been aces in terms of fixing stuff on it, can't complain since I bought it below invoice and got 1% financing on it.

I just bought the 2006 Crew Cab, at year end. It now has 1500 miles on it and is currently at Nissan getting a complete rear end replacement. It had a bad vibration between 70-80 mph, and didn't report it until my 1000 mile service. It seems that several Titans past have had rear end problems. Mine is stock, no mods. Also I noticed that my passenger floorboard was completely soaked when I got it home the first day.
My neighbor bought an 07 Crew Cab and the only problem he has had is a slight squeaking in early morning driving for about the first 3 minutes.
Other than the rear end, I love the truck.
Has anyone else had similar problems I should know of early on?

I have 2004 Crew Cab with every option DVD, Navigation etc. The only problems I have encountered was the faded bedliner and the cruise control switch. Nissan replaced both immediately. No other problems . Currently has 25000 miles.

Thanks. I called the dealer today to ask them to check out the water in the passenger floorboard, and they said it must be debris in the ac duct, leaves,whatever. Hopefully that will be the last of the problems. I want my truck back. They gave me a minivan loaner that really sucks for power and interior room.
#589 of 875 Steering Wheel Controls
Jan 25, 2007 (5:18 pm)
There are a few problems that I am having with my 2004 2x4 LE but Ill
start with the steeing wheel. It started about 5000 miles in. My volume and cruise control would only work when it wanted to. I took the truck back to the dealer and they so called fixed it. Worked for a few months went out again. Took the truck back to the dealer. They so called fixed it again. To make a long story short a few weeks ago I ended up having to drive from Phoenix to Memphis with the cruise control working less than half the time. Also now my bumper to bumper warranty has exceeded and Im having all these problems still. I'm wandering if anyone else is having these problems. Also does anyone have any suggestions. It wouldnt be fair for me to have to wear a bill for something that they cant seem to fix.

So long as it was fixed under warranty and it's documented, they should repair it for free out of warranty.

Jan 30, 2007 (1:12 pm)
I took my 05 se kingcab for service two weeks ago. Oil change tire rotation. Anyway, I noticed my gas mileage had dropped to around 12 mpg blend city/hwy and 9 mpg towing my boat. I checked the oil and found it to be very low. Took it to the dealer and they found the engine to be 3 quarts low. No leaks just whoever added the oil did not put the entire amount needed. My questions is does anyone think this could have damaged my motor. It never got hot or made any knocking sounds for the two weeks it was run like this. The dealer did not seem to concerned about this situation.

I got my 2006 Titan back from the dealer after an entire rear end replacement, and it is still vibrating. I took it back a week later, they checked it out and said that the angle between the drive shaft and rear differential is off. They have ordered a shim kit to "fix" it. My new Titan with 2000 miles on it has to have a shim kit to repair a factory defect. They also put in the extension hosed on the A/C condensation problem. Those of you that haven't had this done on your 06, get it in now, while winter is upon us and your carpet is still good. My truck is starting to smell 'lemony' fresh.
#593 of 875 2005 Titan paint problem
Feb 01, 2007 (3:40 am)
I am just wondering if anyone is having this problem with their paint. I have an 05 SE CrewCab 4X4 Off Road w/tow package, red alert color. I noticed a few small (1/16"-1/8") blisters in the paint, some had already broken when I first noticed them exposing the primer. I did a good inspection of the truck before taking to the Nissan dealer so I would know where the blisters were and stopped counting at 20, most of them are already broken, all of these expose the primer. The dealer has not been very supportive, saying that Nissan will probably claim they are rock chips and door dings even though the location of many of them rule these possibilities out (even have some on the tailgate). Has anyone else noticed this problem? We might have to get together to get Nissan to fix this one, I will post more as my situation progresses.
