High mileage Titans?

Hi, folks! I have been looking at a couple Titans for sale around here with pretty high miles. An 06 with 115k and an 04 with 135k. My question is for those of you with high mileage trucks. How well do these beasts hold up? Any common problems around these mileage points I should be looking at while shopping? My 1991 Pathfinder has 185k miles, is my daily driver, and still runs like a champ.

It's not the miles.

It's the use and the maintenance.

Car dealers will have you believe that high mileage is somehow more important than the use or maintenance that the vehicle went through because the former is most easily seen while the latter are more difficult to prove or show.

Any part unmaintained will fail.

Any part that has currently died on the Titan can be a candidate for failure in the future.

I have an '04 with 106k on it.
An axle seal leak, IPDM failure, MAF died out were the unexpected surprises over the past six years.

I replaced shocks, radiator, exhaust manifolds, leaf spring shackles, plus tires as part of a budget I set aside for preventative maintenance. (oh and because I wanted to upgrade those parts as well!)

Re: High mileage Titans?

Rolled over to the 100k club last month, I now have 100,6xx on the odometer, and I've only had to fix the radiator leak in it. It probably has something to do with the fact that the day before it started to leak I was flooring it up and down an open road having fun. Other than that, solid truck and I am confident it will be around for 150k-200k. I'm actually doing its 100k maintenance tomorrow, spark plugs, oil changes, tranny, rear and front diffs, the works.

Re: High mileage Titans?

Like stated, just look for obvious signs of wear and tear. Check for leaks. If buying from a private owner, ask for maintenance records. I have an 06 with 132xxx on it and still runs like it did win i bought it. My buddy sold an 04 a while back that had about 210xxx on it. I still see it running around town. Probably has over 220xxx on it by now.

Re: High mileage Titans?

Can I ask what they are asking for them? In cali you can find an 04 with less then 100k for about 10grand.. and I sold an 04 78k miles with 6k in lift for 12k.... so just make sure you are not over spending on something with that many miles...

The 04 is an SE Crew 4x4 with all the Big Tow and Off Road toys. It is listed for $10,600.

The 06 is an SE King Cab 4x4. It is a pretty standard SE, the only option is has is the captains chairs and console shifter. It is listed for $13,850.

Re: High mileage Titans?

I've got an 04 with 80,000 miles on it, and the only thing that keeps pestering me, are the brakes. Until I upgrade to a larger size, that's all I complain about.

Most importantly, I service it at the dealer every 4 months, and I firmly believe that is why I have no problems with it.

Re: High mileage Titans?

I have an 05 cc 4x4 offroad se with over 130k that I ordered new from the factory. I've had an exhaust leak since 25k, replaced both console power outlets, had a new rear axle put in at 63k($3200 including rental truck covered by extended warranty), had a transmission mount and abs sensor replaced at 99,850 miles(part of the punch list just before the extended warrany expired). Currently I'm planning having my front struts replaced with the newer version of the quick lift(supposedly better than the one everyone rails on here) because my truck is riding pretty low in the front. I think the springs have sagged a good1-1.5 inches both front and back. I'm running helper springs in back to overcome the sagging. I tow frequently and drive offroad at least a couple times a week because I work in remote locations. The truck has held up fairly well to the abuse I've given it. I maintain it pretty well. I have had the tranny flushed twice. I forgot to mention at about 70k I sucked a little sandy water into the steering system while fording the river behind my house. This necessitated a new rack and pinion. I think the titans don't swim as well as I would like. I'm planning on running this truck at least another 70k before I replace it with something less used. I will probably look at another titan to replace it if they have a better in bed payload in the newer years. I'm in the market right now for a diesel because the titan isn't heavy enough to pull some of the equipment my partner pulls around with his diesel. I have hauled around at least a few hundred pounds of stuff consistently along with pulling a 4-5000 lb trailer about 10-15% of the time. I've pulled as much as 9k(which I don't recommend). I think the truck has been a good value for me. I appreciate how smooth it is offroad. I can traverse the ranch roads twice as fast as my partner can in his diesel because he bounces off the road much easier. I go through a battery about every 14-16 months so I buy batteries that have 3 years free replacement. Currently my backup beepers and my elocker aren't working. I'm out of warranty so I'll figure it out when I get some time.

Re: High mileage Titans?

I'm at 90K with my 2004, which I bought new. I had the brakes replaced under warranty a few years ago and the airbag light on my dash blinks (the various reset tricks didn't work for me). Other than that, it's been typical maintenance / wear and tear, like a battery, tires, etc. I think mine has seen around 3K-4K miles of towing my race car and trailer around.

Re: High mileage Titans?

Digging up an old thread here because it addresses the same question I have. Anyone have any newer reports on high miles Titans? Back when this was written they were all practically new.

I am considering an '06 CC SE that has 115k on the clock. Wondering if I should expect it to last to 200k? 300k?

Need some feed back from some real high mileage road warriors.
