You are in the Nissan Titan
What is this discussion about?
Nissan Titan, Truck
#9 of 828 My salesman called
Dec 12, 2003 (8:21 pm)
7 more of the 10 arrivals. Mine not in, but if I wanted to look, I was more than welcome. Dealer is 2 miles from home.
3 4x4's(CC & KC), 1 KC XE, 2 CC's LE & SE, 1 KC SE. I checked out the KCab - pretty cool rear cab door hinges! He mentioned people with stupid money buying these trucks cash. Last customer bought wife Murano cash, then later a Titan for himself cash. Finance dept wants to make some loans. No wonder they repeatedly begged me the other day to take their loan...
I asked how were they able to get one of the 1st production Titans, and then all these deliveries?? He mentioned they are one of the largest Nissan dealers in the nation, and also on the preferred list.
He then apologized for shipping delays, and appreciated my patience. I later called the sales manager & complimented my salesman. The manager remembered me because my salesman bugs him everyday about my truck. He mentioned he was happy to hear an appreciative caller.
These folks have been great, and have made this process a nice experience to date. All I want is fairness, and they've been pleasant too.
#11 of 828 Triat -- question
Dec 20, 2003 (6:59 am)
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
Dec 23, 2003 (12:51 pm)
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?
