Geez, it gets exhausting listening to lies. I went to drive an F-150 today again. I know, what was the point right? I just want to make sure that I am going to be happy with the truck I pick. I still really like the interior of the F-150, but I still don't like the response to my right foot, along with several other options I can get with the Titan. Also, I think the back seat on the F-150 (ext cab or crew cab) is too low to the floor so it isn't as comfortable for the rear passengers. It was nice, but it still doesn't have anything on the Titan.

Anyways, the sales manager tried to tell me that the Titan and the Ram may be faster empty, but it would walk away from both of them with a load. We all know from our endless research that this is just not true!

The last time I drove a hemi, the salesperson tried to tell me they beat a new Mustang Cobra! Then I mentioned that our other car is a Mustang GT, and there was no way that truck would outrun it, much less a Cobra. I'm so glad I'm researching these things before I actually drive them!

I will say that I don't think a Nissan dealer has lied to me about the Titan, but then again, they don't have to.

I too liked the interior of the Ford and has a school mate ( good friend of mine) offer me 350 over invoice for FX 4x4 that was sharp... I then went and test drove a Titan and was literally "floored" by the truck. The "extra's for the same price won me over. I agree it can be a tough decision. I wanted for some reason to go back to the big 3 but having owned everything but a Dodge I felt right with the Titan. Yes it is a new vehicle but that adds some excitement to the mix.. I still love the stares for what ever reason. By the way, my store alarm went off last night and this baby hauls butt... I put my 9mm on center console and road like the calvary. (yes I'm in Texas). :gunz:

Luckily a false one but I felt like if I couldn't run them down I might even run over their gettaway car!

O.K. back to earth! This is a fun Truck after 2 months I'm still lovin it!

I used to be the die hard Ford guy. Then I decided that I really like the Dakota for styling, manual tranny, small size, with a full-size engine. So I became slightly more open minded about trucks. Well, because of problems I've had with the Dakota, I feel that I've become completely open minded, and I drove everything. Like they say, older and wiser. I'm glad too because if I had the same mindset as 10 years ago, I would not have even looked at a Nissan. Now after driving all of them, it's the ONLY one I desparately want.

LOL, this is good to hear guys!! I sell the Titan and you are very right. We DON'T have to lie about our truck. Not only that, but because we are looked at under a microscope because we aren't one of the big 3, our buyers are pretty well educated about them. I have no problem telling people to check out the other trucks as well so that they feel they are making the right decision. They always come back. We have a clear winner here folks. Enjoy your trucks!

I didn't feel the need to drive the other competing models...

Reading the reports on how the Big 3 are reaching for the hind teat in regards to factory production issues was incentive enough to trust Nissan on this truck.
(They expect to catch up to Nissan in 5-7 years?)

I'd been following Dodge news for the past few years anticipating the new Hemi Ram - but their problems with profit vs. quality and customer satisfaction are not going away anytime soon.

Of course - after the initial test drive in the Titan... I was convinced!

Good sale rep in the Hartland Mi area?

Gezon

Hi live in the Hartland/Brighton area and I am thinking of buying a Titan. 1st time buying away from the big 3. At any rate I am looking for someone who is a pro. Any suggestions?

I remember when the Titans hit the lots last December, several Nissan dealerships around Houston rented Hemi's and '04 F-150's so you could go to your local Nissan dealership and compare the Titan to the competition right there on the lot, test drive and all! Now what does that tell you?

Even if that were true, and I'm willing to bet money it's not, Nissan built these vehicles to do one thing well, suit the needs of the everyday Dude.
No one else comes close to providing the "creature comforts". While they have obviously had ther start up problems, I like their engine hands down.
When you start out with a lower end with "6 bolt mains" you know they're after durability.
I agree with your philosophy of road testing everything.I road tested 'till my butt hurt, then i sat down and made my decision. Do it that way and whichever you chose you'll be making a more intelligent decision.

Regardless of what dealership you goto for which ever mfg, they are going to shoot smoke up your a$$. It's a given. They are going to tell you what "they" think you want to hear. regardless of whether or not it is true. When it comes down to it some of it is probably true. Like the Hemi beating a Cobra. In a proper race, the Cobra would probably win yes...but I'm sure that sales person took the Hemi out, found a cobra at a light by chance and just floored it when the light went green and the person in the Cobra didn't want anything of it, uneven if ya ask me. Anyway, no matter the sales person, you're going to hear a lie about something...guaranteed. That's why I just walk in and take what they say with a grain of salt

When I went in to check out the Titans, nobody lied to me, but I knew much more about their truck & and the other big three then they did...even sat down with the salesman and gave him some tips on why the Titan was a much better truck for the money.
I had already been all over Nissans, Fords, Chev, and Dodges websites, and knew most of the options packages, and what you could and could not get, and how much it would be.
You would think a salesman would do the same...

you have to consider that the majority of salespeople are there to make money, just like the rest of us. In addition the average buyer these days is going to be more knowledgeable about what they want to buy than the sales person is. That and the turn over is so high when it comes to car salesmen, so what is the point of them learning the product they are selling when they may not even be there tomorrow, ya know. Not to say they shouldn't, but the internet has become the worlds so called encyclopedia that it isn't the same buying game it was 5 yrs ago.
