4WD? If Yes, have them change the Diff oil in the front and rear... if not just make sure all the major maintenance has been performed, like transmission flush etc, and then take a look at your rear differential and if the thing looks nasty you might want them to swap the diff cover for you with the newer one that has better heat dissipation. You could also check the air filter and some other things before you write your name, just check some of those things and have them fix them before you sign.

Besides the fix that should of happened to the brakes thats what I would do if I were buying a used one.

Are you buying it from a Nissan dealer?

First thing first. As stated above, check if the brake TSB has been done. Next, here's a list of ALL the possible TSB's that *might* need to be done. You won't really know until you drive the truck and experience problems. Not all Titans had all of the problems. Just the brakes were a common issue. The rest were mostly a case by case basis.

On my 04, before I traded it in, I only needed to get the brake TSB done. That's all.

Ya, he talked about a recall for the brakes. The guy is real trust worthy.
Its not 4x4.
What about that exhaust...I love the way Titans sound!

Maybe its the location. I live in Los Angeles. I have been looking at prices for the past few months. This truck in my local papers, dealers and internet ads goes for about 19k....it only has 18k miles. He has the original paperwork, he paid 28k.

He paid 28, but that was almost 4 years ago. Its up to you and how much you want to spend, if you think it is a good deal and it doesnt break your bank then go for it.

Like someone else posted, do your homework if you can get a brand new truck with the same options for 3k more then you might want to do that instead?

And the stock trucks dont make as much noise as the Titans with the Aftermarket exhausts on them. :)

The only thing is...out the door that 3k extra will actually be about 5k extra. I got this truck for 17,500 everything included.

So, how does that banks exhaust sound. Are there any sound clips posted?

Banks exhaust is very loud and you lose some low end torque with it! Do you want loud or performance with the exhaust?

I dont want loud and I dont want to lose low end tq for sure. I want something that sounds performance...low deep rumble...kind of what Borla would sound like but maybe a littloe louder. A buddy of mine has Magnaflow on his F150 and it sounds great, not like some 70's chevy pick up with Flowmaster, ya know.
