#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!

The trans does not have a dipstick - and is sealed.
The short answer is it requires special fluid which is expensive. The lube shops will be tempted to use their "expertise" and insert a "compatible" fluid since fluid will cost around $10.00 per quart.
I had mine changed at the dealer - oil change and trans oil flush for $300. Expensive but the alternative may not have a happy ending.

I have a 2004 Titan SE with 65,000 miles. I started having brake problems before it hit 20,000. I took it in because I thought it needed an allignment and was told that it was the brakes right away. Obviously they knew it was a problem. So the rotars were warped and they fixed that. At around 24,000 miles my back brakes were metal on metal so took it in. This was not covered and I had to replace them. Nissan told me this was normal wear and tear. I'm not an engineer but it's obvious that when there was a problem with the front brakes that this probably caused the back brakes to over compensate and therefore need replacing. Two more times I had to take it back in for the rotars. Finally after contacting Nissan customer service, they authorized the dealer to put a "KIT" on the vehicle at no charge to fix the problem. They also replace the back brakes again. At approximatley 55,000 miles it all started again. Took it in again at about 60,000 miles and all four rotars were again warped. NOT COVERED and back brakes needed replaced again. I contacted Nissan Customer service once again and a regional representative contacted me. He let it slip that the engineers knew there was a problem but it has not been recalled and didn't know if it would be. I told him that I wanted a manager to contact me. This was in August and I still have not heard from them. So, I recently sent them some correspondence and I'm waiting a response. I love the truck otherwise and would like to keep it. However, Nissan needs to come clean and fix this problem. It is obvious from doing some research on the Web that this is a consistent problem with many consumers. I am to the point now that I am about to contact a lawyer. I welcome any opinions or related experiences.

Before spending money on a lawyer try filing an online complaint at BBB online.

Anybody here have any brake problems with the 06-07 models. I'm considering the 08 PRO 4X long cab. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

I have an '06 with 13k miles that I have noticed the brakes grinding occasionally. It doesn't happen all the time, but I am going to have it checked out. During the first three months my truck was in service 6 times, rear end replaced, a/c vent tube replaced, bad door seal, chipped paint (they would not fix), replaced carpet from mildew, replaced floor mats. Check out consumer reports before buying the Nissan Titan, it rates so poorly, they would not give it a rating. Save your money, buy a Toyota. Don't get stuck with a turd like the rest of us.

Oh, and by the way, I filed with the BBB and all Nissan would pony up was an extended warranty. Oh Boy!
