Is anyone else tired of hearing this? It doesn't really bother me it just gets old. I live about 20 miles south of detroit so you can only imagine how rough it is driving a Nissan. When you try to explain to the ignorant bastards that it is no more foreign than a ford, chevy, dodge, etc. they snub their nose and go on saying how its my fault people are out of a job. I guess the Titan using primarily Visteon parts and being assembled here in the good ol U S of A means nothing. Im not worried about it though, I still love the truck.

Yep, a lot of the foreign companies, including Toyota, Nissan, and Honda, are building vehicles for the American market and abroad in the US, with most of the parts coming from suppliers in the US. On the other hand, the domestics are moving their assembly out of the US with more and more of the parts also out of the US. So what really is American, and what isn't these days? They all are foreign and domestic these days.

Yeah check this out, I get sh*t from a guy at work that drives an altima. Hes like, how could you buy a Titan and i tell him "DUDE YOU DRIVE AN ALTIMA" both Nissans idiot. But he says he got a good deal on the altima, So hes selling it as soon as he can find a good price on a malibu or ford fusion. Some people are fuggin morons, i dont even argue with him cause i feel a little dumber when i talk to him...

They're all fast becoming "world" platforms on which they build their automobiles. It's hard for the informed to make any distinctions.

Just ask them what country their clothes are made in. Then tell them it's their fault for people being out of jobs. :clap:

I don't hear much about driving a Nissan at my work. There's normally 20 to 25 vehicles in our parking lot on any given day, 3 are mighty Titan's.

Yeah it makes things a lot easier when people around you are driving the titan. Like I said I live in a smaller town just south of detroit, and since I have had the truck I have seen 3 different titans driving around town. (one of them is my neighbor) although I have to say I have encountered many open minded people who were curious about the titan, and once they got in it they decided what vehicle they are buying next.

There are a lot of big 3 fans here in GA. I sometimes get crap about driving a Nissan. But after I tell them about all the great features and specs, they usually develop a better understanding of what the Big 3 is up against.:D

And if you think there are a lot of Big 3 fans there, come on over to Texas. :lol: I LIKE driving the Titan. I just smile and take pleasure in the fact that they don't know what they're missing out on.

I just got my new 2008 Pro4X and it is incredible. It is like a BMW that can tow 9500lbs.

Every USA made truck I looked at was a POS.

A few years back I fulfilled a life long dream and bought an Airstream trailer, made in the good old USA. I spent a huge premium on it, 2x what an even larger regular trailer would cost. And what I learned is: if you want something well designed and well made, do not buy American Made. The Airstream is full of half assed workmanship and quality issues that are just abysmal. Stuff that makes you scratch your head and wonder if the guys building it weren't drunk when they were putting it together.

They probably were.

I still love the Airstream brand, I just wish a Japanese or German company would buy them out and start injecting some quality into the product.

American Made isn't what it used to be - these days everyone is too interested in maxing out their credit and slacking off looking for a middle management job to give a rats *** about quality or workmanship in North America. My uncle up here in Canada worked for GM for 30 years, and what that taught me, from knowing my Uncle, is never buy a GM product.

We lost our sense of craftsmanship decades ago. Anyone who calls the Titan a POS is just jealous cause they are driving some rattling, poorly engineered domestic truck. I would just feel sorry for them, and feel grateful you are smarter.

I tell folks that Nissan Employs my brother and me buying a Nissan keeps him in a Job here in the good ol USA. I had the aftermarket parts guy tell me that Nissan isn't a real truck. I told him lets race and if I win I get the stuff for free. He politely said no Thanks. He was driving a Hemi lol

Hands down, the titan is a great truck, durable, good looking, great interior and is priced good. Alot cheaper than any other American made truck. When I tell people I paid only 15000, they mouth drop. They think it costs atleast 20,000. The only thing foreign about the titan is the name. Other than that it was made in the USA. There is a Nissan plant not too far from me down here in Canton, Mississippi where the first nissan titan rolled off the assemble line.

You are gonna have that. :deathsent

I have never owned an 'American' car, and I never will. I work in Union shops very frequently (I am in systems integration) and I can tell you for certain that I will never ever support the people who work there. I would rather pay the gov twice as much in tariffs that to allow a single penny to go to the worthless hogs that would rather read the paper at $27/hr. and complain about the more-than-generous pension plans they are receiving than do a stitch of work. But somehow they will always tell you how great their product is. :wtf:

[/rant]
Ok, I'm done...Sorry about that...
