After reading razorthunder's experiences, it shows Nissan has a strange policy on it's lemons. My brother had a heck of a time with his 350Z and threatened a law suit when Nissan finally bought it back. I think Nissan made great strides in the quality of it's vehicles. But like Mick14 said, some vehicles turn out to have problems. Obviously Nissan is having a hard time owning up to this and tries to sweep it's lemons under the carpet instead of doing the right thing the first time and owning up to it's mistakes. Come on Carlos G.!! Make your company the star it could be!

I think Carlos Ghosn and his nissan reps are busy figuring out how Nissan's profit plunged 54% in the January-March quarter! I guess they better start producing a quality product.

Lemon-Aid rated the 06 Titan 5 stars (highest rating), the 06 Silverado 3 stars (average rating).
Just another opinion. Myself, I put as much emphasis on CR as I do Lemon-Aid. Yet, they are sometimes very contradictory.

I agree CR and other consumer testing media are important for making purchasing decisions. But how many trucks do they test? Maybe 3 or 4? Out of the thousands that will be sold to consumers? That's why I read what some of those "thousands" have to say about their trucks in forums like this one. The media are great for doing the original tech testing but it's the real world testers that count more to me.

I don't have a vast amount of faith in the CR reliability surveys for one thing. I do scan them, but there is too much room for human error and they do not represent the majority. I am in fact a subscriber to Cr, and find that most of their reviews/road tests make sense, but I do take their info with a grain. I do like what they say about not putting too much emphasis on their findings when it comes time to choose your next vehicle. The colored dots might all be in the right spots, but if the car doesn't suit you, it's not a good choice.

I wish I would have listened to consumer reports and their rating Nissan Titan reliability well below average. If I did I wouldn't have purchased to Nissan lemons repaired over 60 times. Obviously, CR won't be spot on every time, but would have deterred me from buying my two Nissan Lemons and gone with a more reliable brand.

Your observations do not jive at all with mine. Now, get some sleep.
