The 06 Titan is rated 5 stars by Lemon-Aid (the top rating)
as well as my Nissan Frontier. Consumer Reports(another opinion)does not recommend the Titan at all. Apparently, the brakes can be a problem. Both good trucks as far as I'm concerned. I see a lot of Titans on our local roads, the South west coast of Canada, and whenever I get a chance, I gab with the drivers. I've heard nothing but good from these encounters, so sit back, relax, and enjoy yourself.
#663 of 875 Routine maintenance
May 04, 2007 (8:35 am)
I get a letter from the dealer that it is time to have my truck serviced. 3 mon/ 3750 mi,I have had my 07 for 3 mon but I only have 1800 mi. I use to go 4000 mi/ 6mon with last truck of 11 years and did it myself. I know the dealership would give me some excuse as to why I have to take it to them, That part I don't mind so much but not every 3mon the way I drive. What's ya'lls take

I'm a bit old fashioned. I would've changed the initial oil at 1000 miles. But that's me.

Did the dealer give you any free oil changes? I got free oil changes for a year when I brought my Titan. Granted it was the worst vehicle I've ever owned, and the dealership customer service was beyond poor. But at least I got some free oil changes which came in handy admist the 30 warranty repairs and the recalls.

Thanks for the feed back guys. Given the advancement of motor oils. I really did not plan on changing it that early but I do realize there is a break in period for engines, kinda forgot, since my trusty F150 only needed normal wear and tear fixs. MY Titan had only 31 miles on it when I bought it. So for I am pleased with my Crew cab. Is there any thing particular to our trucks that I need to know outside of the owners manual, I plan on keeping this truck as long as my other one. I have read most of the forums so I've seen the issues some have had, but thankfully not much on the radar with the 07. One last ,I want a spray in liner, there are numerous shops here, is there one that rises above or is 6 of 1 1/2 doz of another. Looking forward to discussing all things TITAN

I own a Nissan Titan 2005, present mileage 31,000 miles, at 28,000 miles I had to replace front and rear brakes. I was told by the tech that Nissan North America was aware of an ongoing problem with the brakes in the Titans and they had issued a directive to stop replacing the brakes at no charge.
I have owned over ten vehicles and never had to change brakes after 28,000 miles, I also own a Nissan Pathfinder and both vehicles are of poor quality, my children and grands will never own a Nissan if I have any input in the purchase.
I will discourage those that I know from buying a Nissan vehicle.In three years or less Nissan motor stock price will be like Ford motor co. Honda and Toyota are the future.

I have a 2004 Titan and I had the same issue around the same amount of mileage. In addition, the rotors were warped. So the dealership replaced all 4 rotors and all the brakes. At the time, my dealership billed against that directive, so it was free of cost. If only there was a place to post information for concerned owners to threaten a lawsuit unless they took corrective action... Now that my Titan is nearing 90000 miles (48 mile long commute to work) and I'm noticing a vibration in the steering wheel again. Although I love my Titan, and loved my Pulsar too, I am going to go back to Chevy/GMC and buy a hybrid Yukon/Denali this fall.

#670 of 875 AM Radio Fails in 2004 Titan
Aug 20, 2007 (1:06 pm)
I just had the AM portion of my radio go out on my 2004 Titan. The dealer says the AM tuner has been failing on the Panasonic radio but there was no re-call; they were only replacing the radio if the vehicle was still under warranty (which mine wasn't). The problem in fixing the AM adio is that you have to replace the entire radio/CD changer which costs over $1,000 I filed a complaint with NISSAN Consumer Affairs and after a month and a half they finally told me issan wouldn't help replace the radio and if I wanted to pursue it further i would have to del with the Radio manufacturer. I was offered $200 in service credit at my local Nissan dealer. I have frends with 30 year old cars with good AM radios; this is ridiculous that Nissan isn't standing up for it's quality problems. No wonder the Titan gets a black circle in Consumer Reports for reliability. Anyone else have this problem?
#671 of 875 General Titan differential questions
Sep 10, 2007 (4:40 pm)
My '05 is at 30K miles and it's time to replace the gear oils and ATF fluids. I notice the manual is insistent that this be done by the dealer, but I've done this on my other trucks no problem. Anyone know the front, rear, and ATF capacities since the manual doesn't list them?
Also, I haven't had any differntial problems but I can see a lot of you have. Is there any way to tell that my rear differential is bad without any obvious symptoms? Thanks!
