I have an 2004 Titan SE. I have had brake problems 11 times(warped rotors of course). Nissan told me they would take care of the problem. They admitted they had a problem. Now I have 75000 miles an the brakes are warped again. They told me they was not going to warranty it anymore. I have contacted a lawyer an going ahead with the lemon law.
It is really bad because I love the truck EXCEPT for the brakes.

Do lemon laws cover when it's been a few years?

Sorry for your troubles. I hope you can get it fixed. If I were you I would try the buy back or check into lemon laws. I received a call back from Nissan today and they told me they would not do anything for me regarding all the brake issues I've had. I guess they think that the one fix that they did (called the 'kit') is all they need to do. It was only a short term fix and started doing the same thing again. I am going to file a complaint with the BBB. And also check into lemon laws. Although I don't believe lemon law will help me since I've had the truck for awhile. It's all about customer satisfcation and Nissan obviously does not care. It is so apparent that the brake issue is an ongoing problem with the Titan. I will never buy another Nissan product. I hope they realize that their decision will ultimately cost them not only my business but possibly other potential buyers because I will not be able to say anything good about Nissan now. Guys talk about their cars alot and when the topic comes up I will absolutley let them know about my problems. No doubt this will sway folks from purchasing a Nissan. Apologies to all you Nissan fans--but it's all about satisfaction and Nissan would not resolve my issue. There are too many other options out there where the vehicles are quality. Maybe this is why Nissan only offers a 36K warranty where most others over much more. I welcome opinions...

Couple of things to check:
1-when they installed the kit did it come with a 5year/100K warranty on the brakes?
2-File a complaint against the dealership you bought the truck from with the BBB. It may or may not help and can't hurt as if they are members of your local BBB they will be put in a difficult position of having to answer your complaint. You can do the same for Nissan USA and file one with the NHTSA.
Other than that if you still want to keep the truck I suggest you buy some aftermarket rotors and pads. That will fix your problem once and for all. And this will probably be the cheapest route all complaints aside.

Boy, am I glad I'm waiting til next summer to buy. I was close to buying one just weeks ago with the $4250 rebate and all. I thought I really had a bargain there for a moment. Please keep us updated and I truly wish you good luck. I can't believe the 9.7 consumer rating so far.

After 3rd visit dealer installed 2 new rear tires. Vibration is reduced but not gone. Nissan says bad lot of tires. My dealer says already has 20 tires in stock. I will address remaining issues at first oil change. I encourgage people with ongoing problems to post to sites like this b/c information can show ongoing design flaws. I will be pursuing lemon law. I don't know how other states work, but here you have to have same problem 3 times in one year or 12k miles. Already have that. Whatever happens truck will be traded or sold when basic warranty is expired. Should have more info for everyone in December.

Its interesting that despite the nagging unresolved issues, Nissan has the audacity to increase the price on the 08 Titan by over $1600 from 07. This can't be good.
