I wish it was easier uploading pics though ... all my pics say the file is too big ?! Never had a problem on the Tundra forum. Just cell phone pics shot with an android Samsung 6 phone.

Anyway, please share what you like about your make and model Titan. :)

I've posted a few of these before...
- The sound of the 5.6 is awesome, even with the factory exhaust
- Interior fit and finish and overall design/layout
- Ride comfort, especially on the highway. Its quite quiet.
- Overall MPG, its surpases my previous Frontier
- Great value, good number of features for the $. That is if you realize most people are getting 15 to 20% off MSRP.

The front end took some getting used too while driving and judging when to stop while parking. Now after a month or so, doesn't bother me at all and I love the hood design ... especially the driver side crease, which I line up about a foot inside the side markers on the road to keep the truck perfectly centered in the lane.

.. and just as good as my former 4.0 V-6 Tacoma !

That and ride comfort are two of the biggest WIN factors.

Off -Topic but when Nissan releases the new Frontier, are you going back ? .. or maybe add it to your stable ?

Just LYK - I addressed this issue in another thread that i saw where you were talking about the same thing.

All you need to do is make a Photobucket account, upload all your pic's that you want to share on the Forums & then just post all your pics from there!

It's SO much easier & it will automatically re-size your pic's for posting on the Forums!

Happy Modding!

Howdy, New here. In March I bought a new Titan S crew cab. So far I love it.

I was all set to buy a Frontier, until I drove the Titan.

I'm getting about 18 mpg around down and my only highway trip so far netted 21 mpg.

Hit and just surpassed seven thousand miles now and really not one complaint .. (knocking on wood)

Just curious if those of you in the snow belt are planning to 'coat' the underside ? I noticed there is some 'green' metal underneath. Hopefully it's treated to prevent/stave off rust.

I am at 12,000km (about the same as you) with zero issues as well. I really like this truck. I saw the green backside of those panels as well.....I think it's some kind of electrostatic primer. Not sure about the anti-rust properties so I got under there and undercoated as much as I could reach when the truck was brand new and clean. We will see what transpires.

You're definitely in the snowbelt. Prob will be fine, I doubt all the cars up there have the whole under carriage coated, and they're closer to the ground/salt, etc..

Did you just use oil or an actual coating like the spray-in bed liner type ? I read about a 2005 Tacoma (notorious for rusty frames) owner who just coated with oil every winter and his truck frame still looks new.

Any trouble keeping it under 80 mph ? ... this truck seems happy at 2 on the tachometer and handles 80 much too easy.

I sprayed an asphalt-based undercoating on all the panels I could see/reach. I'm not too worried about it...most manufacturers seem to have the rust thing reasonably figured out.
The truck does like to go fast...very tempting to drive it fast as it handles so well. I usually keep it around 120 km/hr (75mph) on our divided highways (posted 110 km/hr / 68mph) just for decent mileage. Speaking of which: I am VERY impressed with the mileage. I get 23 mph regularly on longer highway trips (1 hr or more) and 20 mpg combined mileage. Now I do live out in the country, so I get more highway than city, but I commute to the city every day.

Keep it for 5 years then dump it, that's the best rust prevention.
