Between my two, 2004 Nissans, they were repaired 66 times between 6 dealerships, and were still junk. Thats a pretty poor service record; you can post what you want. But thats a fact, and I kept all my service records. Buying Nissan is like hitting double zero, on the roulette wheel, the house just takes all the money, but ocasionally if you take high risk you can win.
Your welcome to come test drive my lemon Nissan vehicle before buy-buck in a couple of weeks, if it will run; you have a 50-50 shot, you have to be careful has the transmission takes a few seconds to slip into first gear. And if the BCM faults again after having been replaced 5 times, the gauges stop working, drive carefully has you won't be able to tell your speed or RPMs, or fuel level. Also, even though I am on my 4th brake system, there is still a judder. Also my rear axle is leaking fluid because of a busted seal. It also seems mis-aligned. My 4x4 also won't engage, so please don't take it off-road. Also be careful has the window regulators have been replaced after the window fall into the door. Also my passenager door handle has broken off. I also just had my engine harness replaced.
At least the BBB agreed this was a junky vehicle when I towed the vehicle to the arbitration hearing, and so did Nissan conceding and not presenting their defense. Also on my first one, Nissan just gave up trying to fix it, and volunteerly bought it back stating "unable to repair." Two Nissan 04 vehicles and two lemons, each fully serviced through the dealership (oil changes/scheduled maintenance), each with low miles, and well taken care of.

any one specific vehicle has successive and repeated failures doesn't make the model or the manufacturer junk. I had enough problems with my last F-150 (1993), and I chose to buy a Dodge Ram to replace it. But that was ONE bad F-150.
Let's agree to disagree on the perception of Nissan, guys.

Host, sorry to hear about your F-150. What about 2 2004 Nissan consective vehicles with 66 repairs between them in 2 years time frame? No offense, but I personally draw the line somwehere. Even, if you correct the defects in later models, you still sell thousands of defective vehicles in the new release year. It also hard for me to believe that Nissan didn't know about the brake defect before releasing the vehicle, mine was evident in less than 3 months. I think that defines a manufacturer, and no manufacturer is flawless, but no consumer should have to put up with 66 repairs, often repeated repairs, that is extremely excessive.

I am tired of his constant repeating of the same sad story. It's not a
vehicle he needs it's therapy. He has won his BBB hearing and will be paid for his losses but that isn't enough in his eyes, it's his personal Jihad against Nissan and his dealer.
It is to bad that he had a truck that wasn't right for him but he has gone thru the system to get releif and the system worked but he still goes on and on and on.
These forums are meant to help us ask and share and learn but his domination of any point and question is making the forums a joke.
At this point he needs to accept the facts of what happened and also accept that anything man-made brakes. All manufactures have issues
Nissan is working to make the Titan better and the truck made today
and the 2008 has many parts and systems that are different then those from 3 or 4 years ago.
I have owned f150's and Rangers and Dodges and the Titan is the best truck i have ever owned. It has a unique look and driving personality
I have had a great dealer experience and will be getting a 2008.
But i am sure that razerthunder will responded to this message with the same tired rants that have lost any meaning. Hopefully not and we can all live in the hear and now.

Cry me a river? I'm entitled to post my view, and you Nissan worshipers can say what you want. Beleive me I feel the same way reading your garbage over and over, Nissan is so great! I saved lots of money on my defective truck! Its not so bad they reengineered the brake system in 2005! My dealership is so great, and sent me a christmas card this year! I have the greatest Truck in the whole wide world, and I'm so lucky to own it. I love driving my unique truck and its driving personality. My truck is my best friend. Oh Please ......

As I mentioned in the other thread, let it go. You are indeed allowed to discuss YOUR bad trucks. That does not mean ALL of them are bad (or your word, defective), and there are certainly very satisfied customers out there. As this is the Maintenance and Repair discussion, if you have nothing to contribute in terms of those who are asking questions, you are not adding any benefit to the discussion.

If this was a reality show, I would vote off "mike14," so we could move on to dicussing vehicles in 1/2 ton comparison.

I have been reading the threads and am just a little taken a back. I like the look and a recently advertised price on a 207 Crew cab. Are the drive train and brake problems typical through out the Titan product line, or am I reading what amounts to really bad examples of an other wise fine product? Razorthunder, I have read your posts and don't believe you can add anything to what you have already said. Is there anyone else that would care to advise me? Thanks.

Well it's not a reality show because you started to get chil dish, razor-attitude and if it were, you would have been banned years ago.
