#2 of 53 2007 Toyota Tundra

It looks like not much has changed. What did they do just add wood paneling, guess to upgrade just buy the wood dash kit from Ebay. Personally, I like the 2007 Toyota Tundra better, looks like a better all-around product. Tundra has a better brake system; the rotors are bigger and designed for a large truck so you won't keep getting those warped rotors and worn brake pads like on Nissan Titan. Also, the hauling power is better, with the 5.7L engine your hauling 10,500. And the control are driver oriented for better viewing. My guess is Nissan will lose market share to Toyota, especially if Nissan can't get the customer service issues straightened out.

FYI the 08 is not depicted above correctly. The rotor problem was fixed in late 05. And the Titan is way bigger than the Tundra. This also isn't a comparo to the Tundra board please see "Titan v. Tundra" discussion for that.

FYI. Thats actually not correct the 2008 Titan is .8 inch bigger in front head room, and .2 inch bigger in rear head room, however the 2007 Tundra is bigger in front shoulder (+.5 in), rear shoulder (+.8 in) , front hip (+1.9 in), rear hip (+1.9 in), front leg (+.9 in), and rear leg room (1.7 in). And in the exterior the 2007 Tundra is larger on all aspects. Despite the larger interior room the Tundra also gets 2 MPG more than Titan, and 1400 lbs towing capacity. Please post the correct information, if your going to try to make a remark or create a board 'false statements' and post there.

Have you actually sat in one? I could care less about the "numbers" I'm talking about the feel you get when you are in it. I sat in both and drove both and the Tundra still feels much smaller.

Do you measure that feeling in the english or metric system? Also just wondereing if you got to experience the feeling of being stranded in the middle of nowhere, outside cell phone coverage, when the Body Control Module system in the 2004 Nissan Titan fails for the second time, as Nissan blew you off; 'unable to replicate fault.', and then your are unable to operate the vehicle, hiking for so distance to find a ride. Or the feeling of paying $800 out of pocket to get your brakes (rotors and brake pads) repaired for the fourth time because Nissan refused to perform warranty work at 30 months 24000 miles, and released a vehicle without a functional braking system and came out with no creditable solution.

Nope, my Armada has never stranded me, and Nissan has been aces on repairing my First Model Year brakes with larger ones. I tow for 90% of my driving with a 6,000lb trailer and a 9,000lb trailer, no brake issues or BCM issues. As I said the first model years (04/05) had insufficient brakes and this issue was resolved with updated pads and rotors and brackets on mine at 3,000 miles and no problems since. Let's not forget the Tundra and Sequoia had the same exact brake issues on their first generation of full sized trucks.
PS: Since your comments don't concern the 2008 model, please keep them in the Titan compaints/problems thread instead of this thread which is to discuss the new 08 Titan.

History of the model and its engineering and customer service does concern the release of the 2008 Nissan Titan Model. So these comments are appropriately posted in the preview section of the 2008 Nissan Titan. And, again you are generating false comparison, the severity of the Nissan Titan Brake Defect is much worse, which has yet to be resolved in many Nissan vehicles. Braking in vehicles is ultimately generated by heat and friction. The calipers on the 2004 Nissan Titans are faulty and so are the materials and overall design. The rotors are to small, and made of poor material, as the brake pads rub up and down against the rotor due to the faulty calipers this causes the rotors to warp and the brake pads to prematurely wear out. As the rotors warped, the heat and friction weren't enough to stop a vehicle safely. In addition, this would send out vibrations through-out the vehicle, so violently drivers would be unable to hold on the the steering wheel and lose control of the vehicle. Nissan released thousands of vehicles in this condition, they stipulate these facts by issuing 4 technical service bulletins, and one recall, trying to fix it. As a first year Titan owner, this the the foundation and reputation that Nissan launched its new line of Nissan Titans. After four attempts of repairs, and Nissan still has failed to resolve this issue on my vehicle. You can see why I'm not impressed with the 2008 line of Nissan Titans.

However your concerns are with your 04MY, not the 08MY. Do you know anything about the 08MY, the brake issues were fixed with the 06MY and very few complaints have been lodged for those years and the years afterward. So how can you project that because you had a problem with your 04MY Titan, there will be a problem with the 08MY.
Jeez, some people just don't get it do they....

Would you buy from a company that releases thousands of unsafe and unreliable vehicles? Has failed to come up with a viable solution to solve its break defect. And even fails to honor its written warranty in violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. If even Nissan doesn't back its product, why should I?
Jeeez, some people are brain-washed huh? Does Nissan tell you that garbage, like the truck is actually smaller but feels bigger. Ignore are parts defects, and treat those customers like garbage, and lie to them and break federal law buy not honoring warranties. Who cares about the lives that are at stake, its all about out bottomline.

Actually this is my first Nissan I've ever owned.
I had brake problems, I knew that about the Japanese full size trucks going in (Toyota had the same problem it's first year of the Tundra/Sequoia).
Nissan fixed my truck's brake problems, Larger Rotors, Pads and Caliper Brackets. I tow large loads (9,000lb boat trailer, 6,000lb car trailer) and since the brake fixes, no issues.
No one has "brainwashed" me into liking my truck, heck I had a deposit on a Suburban before I even looked at my 04 Armada.
Just because YOUR PARTICULAR dealer isn't helpful, doesn't mean all of them are not helpful.
