You are in the Nissan Titan
What is this discussion about?
Nissan Titan, Truck
Jan 08, 2004 (9:02 pm)
I thought I saw 1200 miles mentioned on the break-in page. I can't remember the page, I was trying to thumb through most of it(pretty thick)in a couple of minutes the other day at the dealer. Maybe my bad hopefully because 1200 is a longer time.
Gunning these motors especially when they're cold probably isn't ruining them, but it sure can't help either. I guess that's the price of a new vehicle on the market with HORSEPOWER advertising heh?!!
Extended warranties. A few years ago some of the new Honda Odyssey owners were buying $900 100k warranties through New York dealer. Is it possible to shop extended warranties from different Nissan dealer than from where vehicle purchased?

oes the NAV system have some type of climate control also? it displays what your setting your air and fan on but not the temperature or anything actually usefull from what I've seen
Does it cover the whole US or just Major US cities? whole US
How do you like the rear sensor, a worthwhile feature? isn't working on mine, need to take it in.
And lastly, do you think the NAV system was worth it for you? it's a toy, kinda cool, not a must have for me but was cool. I usually just drive to work but it's cool to see how much my tire pressure goes up on the way there or how many miles per gallon i'm getting and try to up it by changing my driving habits.
Hope this helps.
I'm also thinking of going back to get the extended warenty.

I just drove home a Beautiful Galaxy Titan. Paid $31,680 for a Titan SE, with the Fosgate, Big Tow, SE Popular w/Capts seat, Utility Bed and DVD theatre packages. Oh yeah also mud flaps and floor mats.Tax,license, etc. ran it up to 35,350. Hey this is California, ya'know. They gave us 12K for our 2000 Volvo GLT SE w/50K miles on it.Thanks for all the info Edmunds.
#34 of 828 Just Ordered A Titan
Jan 11, 2004 (5:56 pm)
I ordered a black SE Titan Crew Cab 4x4 two days ago. I did lots of research and even more shopping around. I made contact with about 10 different Nissan dealers over the phone or in person. About half were not willing to discount from the MSRP on the Titan. The first dealer that offered me a discount offered $1,200 off of the MSRP. I knew I could do better even though the dealer insisted I would never find a better offer so soon after this vehicle was released. I then hit the road and used the phone over the next two weeks and I was next offered $1,900 off of the MSRP by another dealer. My next discount got me a few hundred more dollars and then I continued to get better offers from dealers willing to negotiate until I finally was offered a selling price that was $2,790 off of the MSRP. That is $1,590 less than what the first dealer who told me I could do no better offered me. It pays to shop around, I paid only $771 above invoice. My advice to those that want a Titan but don't want to pay MSRP is as follows...
1. Do your research. Find out how much the dealer paid for the Titan. Learn about the factory to dealer "hold back" also.
2. Do not be pushed into a deal if you are not positive that you are getting the best deal that you can get.
3. The best deals I found at the smaller out of the way dealerships. They tend to be more eager for the business and seem more willing to negotiate. I bought my truck from a very small Nissan dealer that was 15 minutes down the road from a very, very large dealership that was located in a higher traffic area than the smaller dealer was located. The small dealer saved me big bucks, the large dealers seemed very arrogant and unwilling to negotiate.
Now I have a question... Has anyone on here ordered a Titan from the factory? I was told it will take 30-120 days for delivery. I hope it is closer to 30 because I can't wait to drive my Titan.
#35 of 828 Wait on and Order
Jan 11, 2004 (9:00 pm)
I ordered my Titan as well (LE Crew Cab 4X4), was told 60-90 days. However, since they're built in Mississippi rather than Japan expect 60 and not 90. Also, my dealer said it's pretty common for another dealer to order the same vehicle elsewhere and they re-route the truck to my dealership for me. He said that is a common occurance and can take as little as 3 days. So essentially I could get my truck tomorrow or in March.
I agree, it's so hard to wait. I am extremely excited for it to come in, hopefully it's soon.

Titan SE: Utility PKG, Popular Bench, sliding bed extender, or course the usual floor mats and mud guards.
Paid: $25,020 basically about $500.00 over invoice. They wanted 900 over invoice so I'm happy.
Overall satisfaction: I cant say anything bad about this truck at this time. Everytime I drive it seems the world shrinks to me. This is definitely a truck that turns heads!! AWESOME TRUCK OVERALL!!!
#37 of 828 ordered a 4x4 CC XE with some options
Jan 15, 2004 (3:13 pm)
I ordered my 4x4 CC XE with off-road, prefer XE, and sprayed-in bedliner for $500 above invoice cost of the vehicle plus all options.
I went to 4 dealers. One offered only MSRP. One get a few hundred below MSRP. One offered, on the phone, $800 above invoice. And this one, I went in person, $500 above invoice.
I'm living in New Hampshire. The one offered $800 above invoice is Team Nissan (his name is Paul Haydden) in Manchester, NH. The one I bought from
is Ira Nissan in Tewksbury, MA and his name is Bob Morris, a very reasonable and friendly mid-age sale person. I had a great/pleasing experience with him and said I would recommend people buy at this dealership. In short, I think I could get a good price because this dealership is a bit small and any sale will help their quota at the end of the year. I also mentioned that since I ordered my Titan, the hold back could be counted towards their profit; at least most of it. The extra $500 would make both sides happy. And, it was the deal.
I will have to way until the locking diff is available, but that shouldn't be a big problem. I'm driving a '99 all-new GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 ExtCab. It's a nice truck when things are working well. But so far, I had a few major problems with differential gear box, bearing, vibrations which cost my extended warranty almost $4K. Luckily, I bought the $0 deduct.
In regards of some other posts I read about third party extended warranty, at least the company I had (Warranty Gold) covered costs and was very reasonable to work with. The only recent problem with them was that last Nov. the other company that covers insurrance for Warranty Gold filed bankcrupcy. I will get the prorated refund for my premium, but to me it's the death sentence on my GMC truck.
#38 of 828 my appology

I have a new LE king cab with tow and offroad on order. What are owners experiencing with insurance premiums on the new Titan..more, less, or about the same as Chevy, Ford, Dodge
Jan 16, 2004 (9:00 am)
I am in MA, wish I checked out Ira Nissan $500 over invoice is the best price I have heard so far from you and one or two other people. I paid $771 over invoice a good deal but I would have driven the extra hour to Tewksbury for the $221.00 it would have saved me. Water under the bridge now though. It sure does seem that the small out of the way Nissan dealers are much more willing to negotiate then the large dealers in high traffic areas.
I ordered a Titan SE Crew Cab with... side airbag and rollover airbag package, off-road package, big tow pacakage, SE popular with power captain package, utility bed package, sliding bed extender, and mud guards. I know the locking diff. is late availability (April) so does that mean if you ordered the off-road package you will have to wait until April or later to have your truck delivered or do you get the truck earlier minus the locking diff.?
Tung, did you get an estimated delivery time for your Tiatn? Did they tell you that your vehicle will be ordered right away or does it have to wait until they put their order in during the first week of February?
