I am considering a 2017 Platinum Reserve 2WD. I stumbled across an ad for this titan a few days ago. Since then I have been in touch with the owner almost daily. The Titan has 66,000 original miles, the seller is the original owner. It is in excellent condition and has been meticulously maintained. Unfortunately the 5yr warranty expires this month. I have heard horror stories regarding the 2017 both with the engine and transmission. However, I can't find consistent information on either. Some people have this year model and have had zero issues. Other people have this year model and had to have the engine and/or the transmission replaced. It seems to be a flip of a coin type situation. The owner states that he has had no issues with the engine or transmission since he purchased it brand new. The truck has always been locally kept (north GA) and it's basically parked only because he is too busy to enjoy driving it. I personally don't care for heated/cooled seats, I just need reliability. We are expecting our second child at any point within the next month and I can't imagine being tied to a repair shop or having to spend several grand out of pocket if something major was to go wrong.

Is it worth the risk or am I over thinking it? Hopefully some actual 2017 owners can chime in with their experiences.
