I bought a new Titan in 2004 and am considering buying a 2017. (I keep trucks a long time.) I live in the mountain west and, while most of the use will be on pavement, I want a truck for my activities in the mountains, often on dirt roads. I don't tow often. I was close to buying the new Titan but all the talk of the transmission issue has given me pause. My question: Given your experience, would you still buy the new Titan or would you opt for something else: Chevy/Ford/Tundra? Since beauty is in the eye of the beholder, please base your opinion on performance, function and durability rather than appearance. I appreciate your opinions.
