Nissan Titan, Truck
#11 of 828 Triat -- question

Great idea to save money py pulling off the plastic yourself. But, if I buy a Titan, is there any shipping plastic I should know about, in that it might cause a problem if I do not see it or find it to take it off?
That is interesting about getting the tint done yourself.
This looks like a superior Truck to the F-150: F-150 does not have side or head air bag options, and no traction control or stability control options like to AWD Titan. However, the recent IIHS front off-set impact test for F-150 was bery good -- just about Volvo safety level. It appears NHTSA is not even going to test the Titan this year -- perhaps because it came out so later in the year? At this time there is no objective crash test data available to the would-be buyer.
One thing that conernd me on all trucks is the roll-over stability. Been trying to get C.G. from Nissan, but no luck so far.
Though, for the money, Titan seems the winner.

I went out to buy a Ram 1500 Hemi yesterday and drove home in a Titan LE Crew Cab! I paid $1,000 under MSRP ($30,860). What an awesome truck! They just happened to have one that just came in in silver. You can't believe the looks that I am getting!

Congratulations on the new Titan! Describe the looks that you've been getting, if you can!

I just ordered my Titan Friday. It is a far superior product to the f-150, drive them back to back if you're unsure. I got mine for $1500 under MSRP.
When I was taking the test drive I had people staring as well. In fact, I was right behind someone test driving a 2004 F-150 at a stop light and some younger men were staring at that until they saw me right behind the Ford. They never looked back at the Ford again, they gave me the thumbs up too.

aaaedgarpoe - there is only clear protective plastic interior covers, and white pastic covers for the hood,fenders,bedside panels.
tbeecher - Congratulations!! What did you have before? How do you like driving the Titan?
Went by the dealer today, appears all of the 1st 10 from last week gone, 7-8 came in this week?
There was one on the front row exactly like what I have been waiting for. Appears it was a dealer trade-it has the other dealer's sticker. Fingers crossed, hopely that one is mine!

I traded in a 1998 Ranger XLT Extended Cab.
The Titan is phenomenal! All day today people were trying to catch up with me. The Titan does not drive like any truck that I have been in. It is closer to an ML350 with a buttload of power. The tranny is really nice.
If anyone is considering a truck you MUST test drive the Titan. I never thought that I would be driving a Nissan yet here I am.
Tony B - Titan in San Diego.. The funny thing is that my High School team name is Titan...
#17 of 828 Destination charge in Jackson, MS

My family lives in Jackson, MS. I am considering getting a Titan. I noticed there was a Destination charge on the sticker..........I'm just kinda curious as to why. The Nissan plant is like 10 minutes down the road from the car dealership!!!!!!!
Just out of curiosity, if I special ordered one could I drive to the Nissan plant and pick it up so I don't have to pay that fee?

I think the car companies are required by law to charge an equal destination charge. This means that people 2000 miles away from the plant pay the same charge as people 10 miles away.

I owned a 97 F150 XLT - one of the first of Fords new line in 97. It was a great truck until my engin seized on December 2nd. By the time I was ready to buy dealers here in the Los Angeles area were posting dealer markups of $2000 - $4000 over MSRP. In addition to that about 80% of the Titans were the Crew Cab. I wanted a King Cab LE with the navigator, side air bag, and the big tow package. If I didn't find that I had decided to just have my F150 engin rebuilt since I had loved that vehicle. At the last minute a dealer emailed me saying they had one and would let me have it for $2000 less than the MSRP. I test drove it and wrote a check that night. Really nice vehicle - much easier to drive than my F150 was.
Since I made all my inquiries through the web to the dealers I happed to be dealing with the fleet sales people - much easier to deal with and exceptionaly easy purchas. total purchas time was 3 hours from pulling into the lot and driving off with my new Titan LE King Cab.

What color did you get? Welcome to the big ass grin club!
I bought from a no-haggle dealer myself. $1000 under MSRP no ability to deal. It was quick and painless.
