My Titan is at 99500. How many of you Titan owners are over 100k and what kind of problems have you had since you hit 100K? Mine is an 05 4x4 and has been very reliable. I have known of Sentras and Altimas going well over 200k with minor issues. Will the Titan fare as well?

I am pushing 145,000. Since the ticker went over 100,000 I can't think of a problem that needed dealer attention. I will qualify my mileage by saying it is mostly highway on cruise control between 65 and 85 mph. I generally baby this truck with regular fluid changes, synthetic oil and drive like a grandpa.

I only have 65K on mine, but if its like any of the other Nissan's that my family has had, there should be no major problems for a long time. My dad has a 86.5 hardbody (3L V6 I think) with probably 450,000 on the original engine. Only major repair was because a timing belt broke and bent a few valves. This engine was abused too, oil changes only happened when the engine had problems starting (so about once a year on dino with probably 30K a year). They now have a 2000 frontier (3.3L) with 140K and that engine purrs. Only problem is a exhaust manifold leak, but disappears when its warmed up. So I'd say the engine and transmission should be pretty worry free, which are the big money sink holes on older vehicles for the most part.

Any vehicle if well taken care of will last.

Check the TSB's and start considering the price to replace as those parts will also start to wear out.

I had a 93 Nissan Quest that was nothing but problems and a 98 Ranger that was the most reliable vehicle (and abused) I've ever owned. Lets not start making stereotypes. I've owned a lot of very reliable Fords. My wife's Acura with 80k is on it's 3rd Transmission.

Bottom line, engines today run longer on less maintenance due to advances in oil and other fluids plus better engine seal materials. What typically goes is the accesory items up to an including transmission and rear ends.

yeah look at my sig. 305k miles on my Bronco. And I am having that tow a trailer or car behind it on the move down to Florida in a few weeks. And I drive it about 50 miles a week. It all boils down to, take care of your truck. Things will go out but like said before it's the small stuff. A sensor here and there, and maybe a rear end, and a tranny rebuild will be in your future but not for a very long time.

Don't post on here much but my 04' has 112k and has seriously never been to the shop for anything except scheduled maintenance. I don't baby it by any means either. Lives at the deer camp during hunting season. I'm in 4wd at least once a week. Guess I'm lucky for having a first year model without any issues.

Shouldn't have to worry about the tranny, as long as you take care of it, and don't do stupid things to it like some idiots do! :bangit:

I'm by all means not an idiot. And I don't care who you are, a tranny rebuild is very common on any car or truck 10+ years old. My Bronco has had two in its 300k life time. And it has had a baby life from the date it was brand new.

And for your information, I have 72k on my tranny and with recent tranny fluid drain, no metal shavings in the fluid, so I think I'm doing good :bangit:

We'll have to agree to disagree on that one.

No, just a little smarter. :thumbsup:
And what exactly makes you smarter? I would be intersted to hear how you compare your intelligence against others. And by all means, you can compare against many others on this forum as well considering you didn't fully direct your comments to me only.

That's what I thought. No answer because you have nothing.

And how are those threads I created are classified as "stupid"?

I slip my tranny because 1 it can be done, 2 I can afford to fix/replace it if needed..after all, I don't work and I own 4 cars under my name, and have a nice place to live.

I want a loud exhaust, I figured the loudest way would to reduce muffler and cats. We all learn by asking questions. Hence why I created the thread, so others could teach me how things work and what would work best for what I want.

And well, who doesn't play a pratical joke every now and then? If you don't, I'm sorry for you as you must be a fairly boring person. Sucks you can't find the humor in such things and enjoy life. You only live once.

So why don't you let it go, grow up and learn to have respect for others. You may live a better lifestyle if you do. Never know.
