Re: high mileage titans

Hey! Bought a high miler 2005 Smoke Titan crew, off road, big tow, LE...all possible options 3 weeks ago...Had tranny, drive shaft, rear end, brakes and exhaust manifolds replaced a month before! Has 146,000 km (87,000 mi) on it. Guy towed large boat. Transferred 160,000 km (96,000 mi) warranty to my name...full inspection, no other problems. Just gonna use it for my job (carrying inspection equipment under tonneau cover.Probably no towing.

Guy paid $68,000 tax, extended warranty, rust protection etc. I paid $18,000.Included set of Toyo Ice Tires.

Love it !!! ( southern ontario, Canada )

Re: high mileage titans

Currently at about 80k miles, gone to hell. I bought it off-lease/past warranty (planned from the lease inception, before I realized quality left the Nissan business plans) and they offered me a 24 mth/24k extended warranty for $2,400. I've been told the extended warranty is a money maker for the seller and isn't worth it, but in hindsight I'm having second thoughts.

Re: high mileage titans

Depending on load on the truck...such as frequent towing and hauling for everyday chores...I would consider the extra warranty. Also, if you are planning on keeping the truck, changing the timing chain is almost a must before hitting the 130,00 mark if you want your truck to run like new.

Re: high mileage titans

Do these trucks have the negative clearance(?) to where if the timing chain breaks, the engine's ruined, or is it a situation where the engine won't work until the chain is replaced but you're not out the cost of a new engine/installation?

Re: high mileage titans

Mine just cruzed past 101000...thats when the tail-piece fell off the muffler. I am due for some service...brakes, shocks, tran fluid & diff fluid change...all that totals +/- 3500.00. Still runs pretty good, the body seem to have more flex than it used to.

Re: high mileage titans

My 04' has 125,000. The wife drives it mostly since I picked up an 07' The funny thing is, everytime I drive it I am still impressed with the get up and go it has compared to my 4wd with Bully Dog. I tell her, "your a very lucky woman to get to drive such a sweet machine!" I miss ol green every once in a while....that is until I have to lock 4lo in.

Re: high mileage titans

I just turned 138,000 in my 04. Other than the usual stuff for 04's (manifolds, rear seals,brake judder) it has been a sweet ride. I have done fluid changes on several occasions and of course regular oil changes with synthetic. Still running strong and looking good. I frequently fill the bed to capacity and travel long distance, tow maybe 5 times a year.

2004 LE 4X4 Crew Galaxy Black, Leer 100R shell, Chrome tailgate trim, Chrome stock wheels, chrome door sills, Zoomers cat back, 2*advance, 150,000 miles going strong. Traded on a loaded Dodge 1500 Laramie, heaven help me!
As my dear old Dad said, "You've got to stop and smell the roses once in a while". He didn't.... I plan to know the smell of them roses intimately.

You are referring to a interference motor where if the timing is off....or if the chain breaks..the valves will be hitting the pistons and cause massive damage. Massive damage as in.....half of the 32 valves would probably be bent and would have to be replaced. I'm not sure if our motors are or not. I know my DSM 4G63 is an interference motor and we are keen to keeping the timing at top dead center anytime we do anything to the engine. Other wise....we replace all 16 valves.

Re: high mileage titans

Just traded my '04 with 99900 miles on it and bought an '07 to replace it.
Never had a problem other than the "brake judder" fixed at about 6k miles.
It was still on the original brake pads, last checked at 87k they were 70% worn.

SOLD
'04 SE KC Smoke with RF Captains and Utility Bed (100k - 0 problems)

SOLD
'07 SE CC
Galaxy Black with Pop w/RF, Big Tow and Traction
187k - zero problems!!!!!

'08.5 LE CC 4x4 Radiant Silver w/ Tow Pkg.
