IMO I think that once they get some decent stock on the lots and more people see our trucks on the road that the sales will be very brisk. So far in San Diego I have only seen 3 other Titans on the road.. Almost every day someone asks me what kind of truck this is.
I think the sales will grow more and more as people warm up to the new kid on the block. I've seen more advertising for the new F-150 than I have for the Titan, and I have yet to see a Titan on the road. Not as many people know about the Titan as we think (we're all obsessed with it). With more exposure, comes more sales.
With a brand new vehicle there will be a tremendous ramp up period. The fact that Nissan has acheived half of their monthly targeted volume in the second month out is a significant acheivement that any marketing and sales team would be proud of. Monthly sales over 2004 will end up looking like a hockey stick I'm sure.
i've not see one other Titan around here in these parts.
saw one on Hwy 5, north of Sacramento hauling a huge trailer RV.
Berkeley's got a "lot" of Tundra owners. I bet many will consider Titan, but are watching to see if Titan lives ups to Nissan/Datson reputation for reliability.
You guys should watch more football... During the primetime NFL playoff games they advertised the Titan like hell. It was pissing me off because I had a 2 dealers trying to locate a smoke CC LE 2x4. It took a month to finally get my truck.
