#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.

Perhaps you were parked somewhere that acid or other haz. mater may have damaged the paint? I haven't heard of anyone complaining of paint issues on the Armada/Titan/Pathy/Frontier boards.

These spots are spread all around the truck, high and low. I just had a paint shop take a look and they agree there is a paint problem. They look a lot like paint chips except the location of most of them does not fit that explaination and I have found unbroken blisters and some partially broken ones.

I own an 04 Titan Le 4x2 50k. Over the last year I have seen a sudden decrease in my miles per gallon effiency . At best I receive about 12.5 to 13 highway. I change air filters on a regular basis and use middle grade gasoline. Also I have had the fuel injector serviced on a regular basis also. Any suggestions or answers that could help me improve my situation would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

14 MPG is typical gas mileage for the Titan under optimal conditions; level terrain; moderate weather; moderate speed; well maintained truck.

Yes, I purchased a new 2007 titan 4x4 in oct 2006 and I have a vibration also. I brought it back 4 times 1st they rotated & road force balance four tires, 2nd time they shimed rear diff., 3rd my dealership sent it to another dealership and they found side to side play in drive shaft and replaced drive shaft. 4th time Nissan rep came down to look and fix it. Rep. said vehicle is operating normally. So now I wrote to my attorney general and BBB auto line I'm still waiting for a response.

Well, My truck has 2700 miles on it now and has been to service a grand total of five times. This last time they shimmed the rear differential, and I made a call to Nissan asking for a buy-back. No deal they said, contact the BBB if you're not happy. I tell you, Nissan has a real problem with customer satisfaction... they have none. I have owned this Titan for 2 and a half months, and even though it is a defective product, Nissan refuses to take it back. I also contacted the BBB and I am sending my paperwork in this week. Oh, during the conversaation with Nissan (Corporate), I asked if the rear diff goes out after the warranty, would they cover it, they said NO. Keep this in mind for your next purchase, I will.

Sorry to hear about your lemon vehicle. But your not alone; I will go through arbitration via BBB on Wednesday, I'll let you know how it goes. But I can't imagine not getting buy back when I have had to put my 4th set of rotors and brake pads; once every 6000 miles, and Nissan would not honor their warranty at 30 months and 24000 miles. All I have to say, if even Nissan won't back their product, why should anyone else!
#602 of 875 Defrost problems, truck out of service 2 months
Feb 19, 2007 (1:38 pm)
I was wondering if anyone had heard of other reports of a problem like this.
My '06 Titan has 5000 miles on it. The defroster has not worked since I've had it. The blower blows, but no air comes out. I've had it in for repair twice. The first time they claimed Nissan tech didn't know what the problem was, and recommended replacing the head, or something, I can't remember. I got it back, and they said it was fixed, but going down the road, I pumped the defroster up and 20 seconds later, a sucking noise, and then same problem.
Then I took it back, they claim now that Nissan tech says this is a common problem and that the issue has been fixed as far as the way they build the part that is tearing up, for new titans anyways. The problem with that is they shipped a part to replace mine, which got damaged in shipping, and supposedly is the last one in the country. Now they have issued a "stop the presses" where they are supposed to reconfigure the machine to make the old part. I have an estimated repair time of March 15th. The truck has been in since late January.
I just wanted to see if anyone had heard of this problem happening to anyone else.
