New truck , check engine light on!

8082 20
Just picked up a brand new 2011 Titan SV, had for a bout a week now and the check engine light came on after 250 miles and the truck does feel different. Please reassure me that I didn't make a bad purchase here, anybody experience constant problems with their Titan or do I just have bad luck??

My buddy just got his 11 back from the dealer. The spark plugs weren't gaped properly
i'm that buddy,
my 2011 did throw a P0300 code, which is random misfire.
they regapped my plugs and we'll see how it goes.
mine come on around the same time yours did, and would come and go on random.
drive down to autozone and have them pull the code then you can post the code and we can take it from there.

So an update on my check engine light, I just got my truck back from the dealership and you guys would never believe what the problem was. So from the truck sitting in the lot for 8 months a family of mice decided to make a home in my air filter and chewed a hole thru the filter and messed up the sensor. So the dealership had to put in a new 800$ sensor and a new air filter and cleaned out all the crap from the mice. Just my luck! Didn't have to pay for anything obviously, only had the truck for a week and a half. Aggravated but glad that Nissan took care of it and gave me a couple vouchers for Free oil changes.

Not trying to worry ya but I had the exact same kind of thing happen to my F350 that was sitting for a while, the mice were all gone but The truck was never the same, we thought they had only chewed the airfilter. but later on down the road and numerous electrical problems later we realized that they had also chewed into part of the wiring harness and god knows what other little wires they were chewing on. I had electrical issues for years, still to this day it acts up sometime... give it a really good look over.. they went through the wires in the fire wall and made a nice little bed in my dash.!!! Didnt notice they had done that until a year later when my AC switch stopped working and I took it apart..

Plus, you could have one of those sucks stuck in the intake manifold waiting to clog a valve.lol Seriously though, take that truck and exchange it. pro4alberta is right something pops up down the road don't think for a second the stealership will try to shaft you. 99% of the beauty of buying new is starting with a clean slate. Unacceptable!

I would bet the dealer would never ever give you a new truck. :(
