Side Airbags ????

Anyone have a new Titan with the side airbags ??

Anyone seen a Titan on a dealers lot with this option ??

I just did an extensive inventory search on Nissan's web site but couldn't find a single Titan (in several states) with this option!

Not shipping yet with this option :confused:

I had to order mine to get the side airbags. I haven't seen one with the option either.

I've got them on mine. It was the only one on the lot with them but I know of another Titan on a different lot that has them too. Not very popular I would say. Shame because I think it should be standard and not come tied with other option packages.

I've seen several but they have all been LEs with a NAV system. No SEs or XEs.

I believe that if you want them, you also have to order the tow package. Not sure why Nissan wants it this way. Maybe they think you are more likely to flip the truck if you tow.

I had to order my SE crew cab to get side / rollover roof airbags....I also had to order the big tow, off-road, utility bed, and SE popular with power captain to get the side airbag package. I would have also purchased these packages but can undertsand why a budget minded person would not want the tied-in extras to get the side airbag package. Safety is important to me as I am sure it is to others. Nissan made a greedy choice by tying a relatively affordable safety feature to other option packages to pump up their profits. I had to order my truck because the only Titans on the lots with the side airbag package are the fully loaded $45,000 LE models. Way out of my price range, money talks I guess but wrongful death and injury lawsuits are expensive to auto makers as well.

I work for the company producing all the airbags (Both front, side and curtain) for the Titan and Armada. Great program for our company to win. Top quality airbags. We received the Shingo award for excellance in manufacturing and produced our 100 millionith airbag last May. Can't go wrong with the airbag package. Ordered in on my SE last week.

No, I did not pay MSRP, I refused to. I shopped around and I paid about 700 over invoice, best deal I could find at one of eight dealers in southern New England that I contacted.
Side / roof airbags are worth the piece of mind, I don't want to trust my or anyone else's safety to a half inch thick roof or a four or five inch thick door, and glass window.

Shame on Nissan for not making the side/roof airbags available as a stand alone option on all Titan models. :teethmast

Militia Man, are you sure you want the black paint? It's a lot of work to keep it looking good!

Militia man, am I dreaming or did you say that the fully loaded LE was $45,000 in New England? Did it have gold plated rims or what?

Sorry about the mistake, the fully loaded (every option) LE 4x4's are around 41,000 and change. Still out of my price range, but I am sure you got my point.

I already posted this in another thread but it applies to this thread as well.
In the middle of January I had made arrangements with a dealer to order an SE crew cab, the order was to be submitted this week with their February vehicle orders. Yesterday I contacted the dealer and asked if I would be able to change my order to an LE crew cab. The dealer told me that the SE had not been ordered yet but would be this week, and that if I wanted to change the order to an LE I would have to come down and sign a new purchase and sale agreement. The dealer also agreed to sell me the LE for $771.00 over invoice price which is the same as what I was paying over invoice if I purchased the SE.

Today I drive over an hour to the dealer to sign the new purchase and sale agreement and I am told "sorry there is a problem". The main problem I am told is that I want the side airbag package. In addition to the side airbag package I also want the big tow package, off-road package and the sliding bed extender. The dealer tells me that the side airbags are the main sticking point because usually the only Titans built with the side airbags are the trucks with the DVD, navigation, sunroof, ect. Options that I don't want or need and can't afford. The dealer tells me that if they were to order my truck the way that I want it that there would be a very good chance that Nissan would also add in one or more of the previously mentioned expensive options at the factory that I do not want and there would be nothing anyone could do about it. The dealer makes no effort to get me to order a truck with those expensive options and hands me a refund check for my $2000.00 deposit without me even asking for it. I walk out of the dealer completely baffled and very angry. I know the Titan crew cab LE can be ordered in the configuration that I chose. I have done my homework and understand that some option packages are tied together. My chosen configuration meets those requirements.

1. So why then is the dealer backing out of the order?

2. Would Nissan really make changes to my order such as throwing in DVD and navigation at the factory even though I don't want them?

I would greatly appreciate any advice or information especially from Nissan dealers on this board.
