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.

Thanks obyone. Appreciate the info. I assume BBB is better business bureau?

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!

I'm so sorry for your troubles. Do you still drive this truck then? Is it because the Titan has too small of a rotor for its weight? The new Titan supposedly have a rotor that is 26% bigger. I wonder if that solves the brake wear down problems.

As my truck had a ton of mods done I didn't want to pursue buyback. GM offered Major Guard bumper to bumper $0 deductible up to 5 years/100K miles worth $2700 if bought at the dealer. What that meant was any problem for the next 3 years or 75K miles would be paid for by GM. I think if Nissan offered something similar to bufalla he would be more than satisfied.

No need to be sorry for me, thanks anyway. I should have researched a little more prior to buying, that's all. Don't get me wrong, sure, I have some sour grapes to Nissan, and the dealership that I bought it from in Gainesville Georgia, but it is performing well other than the brakes seem to be grinding a little lately. Power wise, the truck performs well, I just wish Nissan had done more home work in the beginning. Good luck to you and to all the other Titan owners.
