I have heard horrible things about Ford, Chevy, GMC, Toyota and Dodge along with the Titan. I own a Titan for a reason. It is the best truck out there IMO. This is a Titan forum and you will get biased answers of course. We all love our Titans and I am sure if you get one you will agree. They do have problems just like other trucks. The engine and tranny in this truck are among the best of any vehicle. There have been Titans that have been lemons and there have been gems also. You have to remember this is a first design and you will have a few more problems with first design vehicles regardless of manufacture. Most if not all common problems have been address by 07 and there was a minor redesign for 08 models. There are rock solid 04-06 models also. Just do not take advice on a Nissan from a Chevy or Ford guy and expect to hear good things.whats the deal with the 06's? ive heard horrible things about titans in general. but i really like it. so confusing.
Where better to get consumer reviews than from a dedicated owner forum? The Titan is BA and we love them. I test drove every 1/2 ton truck available before I bought my Titan. The Titan was the best truck, hands down, in my opinion. It also looked the best. It was a far better deal than the others. Go drive one and you will see. Why not get a used 08? No worries about new batch trucks there. The prices should still be pretty good on used trucks. An 06 cannot be that much cheaper than an 08. The Titan was a brand new truck design in 2004 and had a few known problems. Rear diff problems, and brake problems are the most common problems but are still rare if you consider the percentages. All of that has been addressed and fixed for the newer models. Like Jazie said above, the squeeky wheel gets the oil. People rarely post good things on any auto forum. It is usually problems and questions. The Titan has never sold very well, but most agree that is due to lack of marketing by Nissan and the typical US buyer who refused to buy a "jap" truck. Although the Titan is made in the USA, not Canada or Mexico like the "domestic" brands. Like I said, do yourself a favor and drive one.i was reading consumer reviews off cars.com and edmunds.com ETC....
Well, the "deal" with the '06 is that it is the third year the truck was in production, so that gave them time to work out some of the bugs.whats the deal with the 06's? ive heard horrible things about titans in general. but i really like it. so confusing.
I have owned a XE KC Titan 4x2 before it got totaled by a punk kid rear [email protected] 60mph. I will tell you, I never had any problems with that truck and as far as dealerships, you have to go to the right one that treats its customers right. I put 45000 miles on that truck and there were no brake issue or diff issues and I towed a 5500 load about 450 miles non stop both ways going through hills and the notorious Grape Vine on the I-5. That truck made me go for another TITAN when it was wrecked. Trust me, you will not find a better truck, because even driving all the new Dodges, Fords, and Chevy's, the TITAN still won my heart. Good luck on the search for the right one.yea about the diffs, brakes, paint, leaks, dealer service
