Hi There! I have been searching for someone that has had the brake problems like I have on the front brakes. I own a 2006 Titan Crew Cab 4x4 and I can assure you that the brake issue has not been resolved. I had to change out both front rotors and 4 pads at just 30k miles. After changing them out, I went another 28k miles and am having the same problem.
Nissan refuses to address the problem or admit that there is a problem. On the 2008 Models, Nissan has increased the size of the rotors on the front brakes. Maybe its me, but doesn't the fact that they did this indicate that they know they HAD a design error? I will not back off of this and hope to gather enough of Nissans' Customers to make them correct this issue. Please reply on this site once you see my email.

I have an 06 CC 4x4, and yes, my rotors started at about 30k as well. I have not had them turned yet (probly this weekend).

Sorry to hear about your troubles. Yes, I've experienced the same problems. I have the 2004 Titan and experienced similar problems. I had my front rotars and brake pads redone at just under 30K miles. Then I to experienced it again within about 25K miles. Then again. Finally, they put the "kit" on my truck and it appeared to fix the problem until I reached about 62K. Then it happened again. I contacted Nissan and they told me it was not under warranty any longer. I told them that it was an obvious ongoing problem and that the "kit" didn't fix the issue. They washed their hands of it. So I contacted the BBB and after sending all of the paperwork to them, it was disturbing to find out that they could do nothing for me because of the year of my vehcile. I pretty much told Nissan that I would never buy another vehicle from them ever again, which I won't. I do love my truck and plan to keep it. I am going to look into putting ceramic pads, etc. on it myself. But I can assure you that I will never do business with Nissan ever again. I hope they realize that this will cost them in the long run since they lost me as a customer and they can be positve that I will pass on my negative views of Nissan products to everyone and anyone who will listen.
Let me know how things go and if I can be of assistance. I'd love to have Nissan fix this problem for me.

I have a 05 Titan CC which due to brake dust changed the front pads to ceramic at 300 miles. That was a blessing. No more brake dust and NO brake issues. Apparently those metallic pads that Nissan uses while providing a little better braking then the ceramics also causes excessive heat buildup which warps the rotors.
My rear brakes wore out at 24K miles. Asked the dealer why did they wear so fast while the fronts still looked like new? They replied that's how it is and quoted me $350 to cut the rotors and replace the pads. I told them forget it and replaced the rears with ceramics. Going on 40K miles with no brake issues.

I just failed my inspection due to the fact that my rotors were rusted, I was told by the service manager that I didn't drive my Titan enough, which I have 23,000 miles on and drive it everyday to work.They told me they would not cover it because of wear and tear, I never heard anyone say that something was worn or rusted because of the lack of use.I had to replace the brakes in the first year I owned the 06 and now again in '07, something is wrong.

well, if the rust is where the brake pads would normally contact the rotor, that means that your caliper is not engaging the brakes at all, in which case the brake system has a problem. if the rust is elsewhere, thats not grounds for an inspection failure in most states. I'm in Texas and used to be an inspector. Ask the inspector to show you in the manual (that they are required to have on hand) where it says rust is grounds for failure.

I'm having several problems
1. driver side window will not operate, I haven't tried in a while because when it does work, it will go down but not up.
2. Truck seems to die when idling sometimes, seems like it is dieing more often now.
3. while the cruise control is on it will shut-off by it's self. sometimes when trying to reset it the "set" light will blink and it will not set.
4. the check engine light is intermittent. It will stay on for 3 to 4 days than next time in the truck it won't come on.
I know these are alot of problems but can someone help???? Please!!!!!

I had the same brake issue on my 2005 titan. They fixed it two times and the second time seems to have solved the problem. But the truck is a piece of junk. It have been in the shop for over 60 days most in the last 15 months most of it electrical issue. About 6800 dollars in repairs. They have no idea just throwing parts at the problem. Nissan customer service says sorry about you luck.

The 04 had problematic window motors that needed to be replaced.
On the check engine light a code has been set and needs to be downloaded via an OBD II code reader. Most of the auto parts stores could do it for you for free.
The 04 also had grounding issues that could cause your idling issues.
Haven't heard anything about the cruise control.
