Buyer’s Remorse??????

I sure hope Nissan reads this forum. I just upgraded from a 2004 Crew Cab 5.6 LE to a 2018 Crew Can SL. My late wife had 6 Maximas over the years so yoy could say we kinda like Nissans. But, if I had it to do over, knowing what I now know, I would have stuck with the 2004 Titan.

I miss the lockable storage space behind the driver’s side rear wheel where I stowed my hitch and road flares. Sure, I can stow them under the rear seat in the space that uses up the space under the seat. Nut, I no longer can use that space for other things.

SERIOUSLY, who needs 14 cup holders? Can’t even stow cloth grocery bags in the rear door’s panels!

If you or valet parhing loses your remote your up s**t creek unless you brought a second one otherwise you can’t start the truck!

The center console has no lock. Even if it did or you use the glove box and you pull the key out of the remote valet parking has no way to hang your remote on their “keys board” thus more prone to lose it (see above).

The most aggravating thing is Apple has had Car Play in 2004 but didn’t make it available innthe Titan until 2019. Of course Nissan could install a firmware or software update to the 2018 and should free of charge considering what the truck costs.

Finally,you can’t turn on the rear facing camera except in reverse. My daughter’s lowely Honda turns the camera on when in drive and you activate the turn signal so you can see innyoir blind spot. AMAZING isn’t it?

What sold me on the 2004 Titan was Nissan had pit so much thought into the customer convenience aspects, of all things, A TRUCK!

Mechanically, the 2018 carries on the tradition and reliability of the 2004. The 2004 had some bugs when introduced but Nissan took care of every single issue and it wasn’t a hassle getting warranty work done.

Listen up Nissan! I would suck it up and live with all my gripes if you’d just install the firmware or software update (whichever is required) so my Rockford Fosgate Radio would have Apple Car Play.

Seriously? Every single item you referenced was easily identifiable during a test drive or by going through the truck on the lot.

Nissan does not compete with the big 3 directly. It seems like maybe the original was meant to. Nissan trucks fill the niche of being the most affordable decent quality truck. They sale trucks by being the cheapest, that’s all. Who wouldn’t have bought a Ford, Dodge, or maybe even a Chevy if they were all the same price?

What's so funny after all your gripes that most have validity. You would forgive and over look all of them if you had Apple Car Play? Really? You Apple, I-phone lovers drive me crazy. MS-DOS forever

I prefer not using remote start or drive-thrus, both hurt your MPG's a lot & you shouldn't let your vehicle idle more that a minute or so especially unattended.

And u forgot to mention the nav screen is an inch smaller than the other truck brands... thus making the Titan the most horrible truck on the market....

Maybe blondes really do have more fun....

This is debatable at the moment in my book due to the engine knock / piston slap issue.

If they handle it like the rear differential issue we are kinda fuct.

In a little bit of his defense, it is different once you actually use the truck rather than test drive the truck without any of your stuff or going about daily activities.

I for one use a lot of cup holders, but my gripe is that they're so big and some cups/bottles rattle around.

Camera quality sucks, too...but that's another day, another thread

The cup holders should have removable or adjustable inserts, I cant stand my iPhone upright in one side and lay it across instead.

Regarding the comment about my being an Apple iPhone lover. That is what cell phone I currently have after android for years. My complaint is with the Sirius Maps app (worse than Apple Maps). With Apple CarPlay I could access Google Maps on my iPhone.

However, why after 14 years does Nissan decide to add Apple CarPlay to the 2019 Titan? Over 500 cars of all brands offer it including Nissian but not on the 2015-18 Titans. You should re-read my post and not assume.

Re: Buyer’s Remorse??????

The Waze app rocks use that one. I dont like that you cant get the top stereo in the SV. No Apple car play is also nuts. I hate that my 2012 wont work right with my iPhone they never updated the software in the. Trucks to fix that issue. Nav is useless no more DVD updates for that either. Small things add up and piss you off yes but like most if no t everyone the drive and feel if the truck plus reliably makes you forget about those things. Now about those two bed lights that get moisture and rust out
