Nissan must of got it right with the Titan. All the Ford, Chebby, and Dodge forums are really slamming the Titan.

Funny though; most of the post are "The Titan sucks, it can't tow 12,000 pounds like my Ford Diesel PowerStroke"

...............NO REALLY! Buyers of the Nissan Titan aren't planning to tow 12,0000 pounds! They want one of the hottest truck for 2004, the quickest acceleration, best brakes, best handling, and a definite alternative to a 04 F-150!

I had a Toyota, and two Fords. Fords have lots of mechanical problems. It's a American made truck; it's gots to have problems. I not ragging on America or American workers; just the shoty assembly, quality, and QA of their trucks. I do own a Ford Super Duty PSD to tow my Bobcat. It would be traded in a heart beat if Toyota or Nissan made a heavy hauler!

Ford is the #1 selling truck, but if I had a penny for every bad story I've heard, then I'd be rich!

On the flipside, I'd also be rich for all the RELIABLE truck stories I heard from the imports like Nissan and Toyota.

If you gotta tow........then get a Big 3 diesel, but everything else has Nissan Titan written all over it!

My Titan is coming on Jan 7, 2004. I CAN'T WAIT!!!

A couple of notes.. The Titan IS an American truck.

I bought mine because it does NOT drive like an F-150 or Ram. It does NOT look like every other F-150 or Ram. My primary use of my Titan is to get around town. I only need the bed on weekends and I really don't have much to tow.

People see the Ford and Dodge on the street and don't even notice it. When they see my Titan they stop me and want to know what it is.

Of course they're going to slam the Titan. Most of these guys have been mislead to believe that the brand of their truck was, is, and always will be the best. Magazines reviews (the professionals) are telling them that the newcomer is better. They can't say their trucks are more reliable (except for the off hand story of their "friend's" Toyota that was in the shop every other week, so they bought a Dodge that lasted 1 Billion miles before he had to replace the fan belt). They can't say their trucks are faster. The only thing they have is the the manufacturer they bought their truck from makes a hauler.

Tony, do a favor to us that don't have their Titans yet. Smoke a few Hemis, Silverados, and F-150s off the line!

I was just out and for the first time really paid attention to the door handles. They are really cool, especially compared to the Ram.

Other people have complained that the doors take too much effort to shut. I believe that this is because of the triple seals. The doors are very impressive when they shut.

Tom,

Are you just like catching up? He posted that last year at the end of December. It just seems a little late to be replying to this thread.

And how much did you pay for the Blower including the installation if you
wanted to keep your warranty. Neat truck but $$$$$$$$$ and you gonna
see the taillights of a ford lightning for sure.

Valid point on the warranty allthough if you have the $$$$ to put that kind of money on a S/C than the warranty may not matter cause "You Got To Pay To Play" and as far as a Lighting goes once again that's comparing apples to oranges. The Lighting is great in a limited area, throw some rain or weather elements in the mix or ANYTHING other than pavement and the Lighting is gonna see taillights and sky from spinning out and flipping over as the TiTan Blows by "bye"...

I paid 6000.00 canadian including install and It's still under warranty, for at least another 4 months.In a foot race, the Titan is the toughest rival though. :) The Lightning is a good bit faster than the tundra due to it's larger displacement and more importantly, intercooler.

It's all good guys, I do love the new Titan. There will no doubt be some kick **ss mods, including either a Turbo or centrifical supercharger thats intercoolable, unlike the lousey roots style blower I've got.
Cheers :cheers:

I think that Dodge has a 500 H.P version out now too kind of a copy of the Lightning what is up with a fast truck I mean for the money $50K$ you can go a lot faster in a sport car right? ( Corvette, Porshe, or even built Import...)

Fully loaded your at $45,795 for this Trukin Beast allthough interestinly enough the base start's at $22,425 which means just the options alone cost more than the base price of the truck at $22,575.:readclose "That ting gota hemi in it?"

As much as I Love my TiTan this Dodge did set the Guinness Book Of World Records for the fastest production P/U but I could still beat it in a race-In a rain or snowstorm :teeth: :teethmast Ok enough of the sarcasm...
"That ting gota hemi in it?

It goes 0 to 60 in 5 seconds and tops out at around 150. Quarter Mile in just under 14. That's pretty impressive and is faster then the mighty Lighting, a STOCK Lighting that is but for the money you could definitly go faster in something else. Not a Stock P/U though...
"Hey, I said that ting gota hemi in it!?

It's all about the title of fastest prod P/U

:tongue::domohit:

:imwithstu
Yup, and it aint got a Hemi in it, just a viper engine :eyebrow: dammit, I said enough with the sarcasm:fight:
