In recent months the sales of Nissan Titans in my town are going through the roof! I have noticed for a while that there is hardly ever any Titans in the yard. If there are some, chances are they won't be there in 3 days.
I had talked with the guy at the parts counter while picking up an oil filter and he said that Titans were going faster than they could park them.
Well yesterday morning was proof. I was driving my wife to work at around 650ish and I see a bunch of people standing around in the lot at the dealership. I wasn't sure what to think of it since the place doesn't open till 8. I drop off the wife and as I'm driving back, I see two haulers loaded with just titans, 14 in all to be exact, waiting for people to move their vehicles in the lot so they could get in. As I drove on I saw quite a few Pro4Xs and some long chassied ones too. I wanted to stop in and see what was going on, but I had other things I had to do.
After lunch about 1 PM, I figured I would checkout the new Titans. I pulled in and....no Titans? A salesman came up to my truck and asked "can I help you find anything?", I just told him I wanted to see the new Titans that I saw come in that morning. He said "Too late, there all gone".
I asked "all of 'em? How many?" he said "all 14 of 'em". How the hell do they sell 14 Titans in 5 hours? Sh!t, it took me 7 hours to drive away in mine! :jester:

So it turns out that half of those people were there to buy a Titan, the other half was salesmen and security and most of the buyers had already put down payments on and/ or pre-ordered them. One guy bought 3 Titans with a Ford F-650 trade in on a separate occasion! The only problem this dealership is having now is getting rid of all the F-150s and Chevy trade ins! lol

Just proof how much these trucks kick @$$! :gunz:

I believe it. Here in Nevada, it's also hard to find Titans for sale. I've been hit up 3 times for my 06. You'll see two at the most selling in a car magazine, but then a month or two go buy and none are being sold. I treasure my baby and will not trade it in.

the guy I was dealing with when I bought my new/used Titan last night said that there was a $5000 rebate at one point on the Titans and you couldn't get one anywhere in Colorado.

One weekend, Littleton nissan had $7500 off msrp for 06 and 07 titans. I should've traded my o6 in on an 07 but just didn't have time that weekend.

Sales of the Titan have been on a steady decline since 2005(Titan's highest production year).
2005 sales =86,945, 2006=72,192(-16.7%), 2007 as of the end of July=38,781(-13.4%).

That actually I believe is the production numbers. The first year there is always more the the next and so fourth just to get the product into circulation. The demand for the Titan has actually increased. What the statistics don't show is the sales of used Titans. Usually a budget conscious consumers will wait to get a 1 year lease return, used or a demo vehicle that doesn't show up in sales reports. Production numbers will decrease since there is a large number of Titans out in circulation and a majority of the consumers buying Titans now are the ones buying used ones that don't count to the sales numbers.
And another fact, Titan owners will generally keep their truck rather than getting a new one hoping that the new version would be better (Like F-150 owners).

My numbers are accurate. Yes the Titan sales were up for July, but are down -13.4% for the year.
You said in your previous post that you read that Titan sales were up 5.9% for the last couple of years. You may have read that, but it far from the truth.
As you say, go to www.nissannews.com. There you will see that that for 2006 sales were down -16.7% from 2005, just as I said. You will also see that as of the end of July, just as I said, 20007 sales are down -13.4%.
Show me where I have stated that I hope that the Titan folds, don't bother, because you won't find it.

Yes, those are production #'s, they are used to figure GDP, which is what every company uses. Used car sales don't add anything to Nissan's GDP, therefore no company uses them. In other words used car sales don't add to Nissan's bottom line, they may add something to the dealers bottom line but not Nissan's.
I also question your "FACT" that Titan owners generally keep their trucks rather than getting a new one. I don't know how anyone could even come up with a statement such as that considering the Titan has only been out since 2004 and there is not enough data to say one way or the other.
Also, if as you say, Titan owners keep their trucks longer, there would be a very small # of used Titans on the market, which puts a hole in your used Titan sales theory.
If demand is up, why are sales are down? Production #'s don't decrease just because there are a lot of Titans on the road. First, there are not a lot of Titans on the road, Titan sales have barely put a put a dent in market share of the truck market. A company produces less of a product for two reasons. Demand is down(As is the Titans case), or supply is restricted, which is definitely not the case.
Nissan saw a blip in sales in July and may see one in August because of the huge incentives. when the 07's are gone, sales will return to their average #'s.
Remember a 5% increase in sales in July, only means that Nissan sold about 250-300 trucks more than the previous month. Even with the 5% increase for July, Titans are still down -13.4% for 2007, although that is better than the -16.7% decline seen in 2006. No matter how you parse the #'s, demand is down, on a year to year basis.

Good job Redneckpapa! You can't or won't dispute the facts so you engage in adhominem and personal attacks and subjective comments which have nothing to do with the subject we are discussing. That is the equivalent of raising a white flag.
I have never whined, bashed or cried, although it appears that you are doing just that.
Just what does the fact that your Titan has been awesome for 3 1/2 years have to do with the subject at hand? Perhaps if more people were as lucky as you, Nissan would not be seeing decreasing demand.
