I own a 2005 Titan SE, I am looking into buying a 2008 Titan LE, but...the with the new Tundras out, well...I would like to know which would be overall a better buy. I don't know if anybody has owned both, or know's somebody that does but in terms of Raw power, comfort, and overall quality which in you humble opinions would outshine which? I love the Titans, but as for which is better, I don't know I have tried both...but opinions from other titan lovers are appreciated...:smoke:
Toyota has the advertising and the word of mouth right now - BUT the Titan has a much better priceerformance ratio. I looked at both when buying my truck. I originally wanted an F150 - when I looked at both imports I found that the same options I wanted in the Tundra was 10k less in the Nissan.
The only thing I worry about right now is the resale value.
When I bought my Nissan in October, I looked at Tundras and I like the CC 4X4 but it was very expensive compared to Titan. Also the have Tail gate issues, Failing rear-ends, and now the recall for 20 engines for Cam failures (Makes me think Just 20, what about the rest). Though I trust Toyota to quickly fix all their issues but when you start selling lot of vehicles and current cost presures in the Auto industry, something got to give- unfortunately it will be the quality.
Also lot of people say that 381 HP & 401 Lb-Ft Torque is not a real no.
I like my Titan very much and I think Titan interrior is lot better then Tundra. But that is just my opinion. Good luck with whatever decision you make.
no doubt i think the toyota is a bad a** truck but for what i need and want the titan was the best bet for me options and price was a huge dicision maker for me you get so much more with the titan for the price
good luck choosing i hope you chose what will be the best for you
Aside from the recalls, I wasn't impressed with the Tundra.
There is a cheap plastic piece on top of the grill that bothers me because it's thin & moves around.
The frame is not boxed, the C-channel design flexes quite a bit more. It's also subject to dirt or road salt piling up in there. The frame's cross members are rivited on & not welded. The frame is weaker. It's probably sufficient for anything a pickup truck is subject to, but boxed frames are stronger.
