So did you get the navigation package? I have been considering this, but it is an expensive option, and there seems to be little information about it. If you got it, could you help answer some questions?
Does the NAV system have some type of climate control also?
Does it cover the whole US or just Major US cities?
How do you like the rear sensor, a worthwhile feature?
And lastly, do you think the NAV system was worth it for you?
Thanks for any info!!!

for my dealer to get a Silver or Red, SE,CC, with Popular Capt's and Util Bed Pkg. A month wait as of tommorrow with my deposit... Seems most of the Titan's recently either 4x4 &/or KC.
Every week there is a Titan at my dealer brought in from other dealerships(tailgate badges, lic plate frames, or vehicle price sticker gives it away). There was one exactly like what I waited for the Sunday before Christmas. Monday a salesman called to say it's here. By later Monday it was gone. I asked them about this. "You're 2nd on the list".
Finally my question: If they do a dealer trade from say Dallas(3 hour drive); is it common practice for a dealer to give some kind of discount for that mileage on brand new vehicle??

I sold cars (Honda) back in 1996. Of the 100 cars I sold that year, not one had any money deducted due to miles put on the car during a dealer swap. Most people were so happy and excited to be getting their new car to worry about it. I have no idea if Nissan makes adjustments.
I wish you luck in getting your Titan soon. I test drove one the other day and I can understand your anticipation!

Blown away by the truck. Had a question for the board. What do you think of the Nissan extended warranty. I was thinking of getting the Gold Preferred plan 72 months/ 100,000 miles. It seems more or less bumper to bumper for an additional $1600.

I don't usually by the extended warranties but I did buy one for my Titan. My thinking was that it is a first year truck and there might be some gremlins that have not surfaced yet.

I guess I was also just a little concerned about a dealer employee just hammering the gas and the brakes right off the delivery truck with no regard for break-in!
By the way, anyone notice 1,200 mile break-in for the Titan? No big deal for me the way I drive, but don't most manufacturers recommend 600 miles?

This won't make you feel any better.. I test drove a Titan that I new I would not buy. The salesman started it up (cold) took it out on the street and held the pedal to the floor to show me how fast 0 - 60 was. My wife did the same thing and then so did I. This beauty only had 24 miles on it.. We they go my truck it had 92 miles on it. Yet another reason why I bought the extended warranty..

too funny, ok, I'm laughing now, I've loosened up. Thanks Tony!

Don't assume that because a new car or truck has less than 30 miles on it, that it hasn't been hammered on. When I sold cars in 96', I once saw a salesman take a new Honda Prelude off the truck (4 miles on odometer), and blast it up the highway. When he returned, he bragged that he had redlined every gear all the way up to 137mph. Did this shave a few miles off the life of the car? Maybe / maybe not....however, I know I wouldn't want to start off with that car.
On the other hand, there were some older retired guys who worked for the dealer doing swaps. The cars they drove back from other dealerships may have been driven 50 to 150 miles, yet, they were no doubt easy miles. My point is: You never know...!
#30 of 828 Extended Warranty
Jan 08, 2004 (7:14 am)
Thanks for replies. I also saw the sales people gunning a Titan. It was not mine, but it sure did make me feel uncomfortable. I wonder what the 17 miles on my truck were like. I am going to go ahead and get the gold preferred extended warranty, probably the 72 month/100,000 miles (it's $1595!). With the break-in mentioned above, I asked the sales people and they told me the engine was pre-broken-in. The only thing they said was not to use the cruise control for the first 600 miles. No speed limitations just need to vary the speed. What is the 1200 mile break-in? I could not find any reference to this in the manual.
