I use this truck to Tow almost daily (about 4-5000lb trailer). Great tow vehicle. Mileage is about 10 towing. About 12 around town. I once got about 14-15 on the interstate and was thrilled!
This thing eats brakes. Fronts every 25k, rears every 40k. Trim pieces are cheap, but the engine/trans has benn reliable. I would buy it again. (I would get 4wd though)

I puchased my 2004 Nissan Titan with less than 50 miles on it and I currenly have over 120K.
There has been 2 recalls (brake shudder and wiring harness) and both were done quickly and efficiently.
I have read where people wanted better gas mileage but you don't buy a heavy truck with a powerful 5.6L V8 engine and then complain about the mileage.
I have towed 10K, loaded the bed to the point where it couldn't take anymore and everything worked as expected.
I have replaced the rear axle seals and bearing with better than factory.
Used only synthetic oils since 2nd change.
It just keeps running.
Never a hiccup or an issue.
Been a great truck and I plan to keep it until it dies!

I bought my Titan w/ 113,000 miles on it and it is just like a brand new one. I now have 126,000 on it and not one problem. Take care of it and it will surely take care of you. If you have ever questioned if you should buy this truck over the Detroit boys, well you would never regret it. Give it a chance and you will never go back, I promise you that.

Outside of the engine and the premium sound system, I would not buy this truck again! Apparently, there's a waiting list from Nissan, including myself, for a known problem with the AC evaporator unit, which is behind the dashboard, that when it dies, they currently do not have a replacement and you'll have to wait for several months/year for one. Never buy a Nissan again!

purchased new and has been spraying gasoline out filler neck when re- fueling. Dealer has replaced evaporative canister 3 times and fuel tank once. Just returned at 43k and dealer and Nissan refused to repair item.

Have been pretty pleased with this truck. Dealer fixed brake problems early on. One thing though is that many times at night when I turn on the right hand turn signal the lights go off. This has scared the crap out of me as driving at high speeds at night and the lights go out when I turn on the right hand signal and a few times when I go from dims to bright. Anyone else experience this? Always in a panic to turn them back on.
Jim, read your message, I had this problem on my other truck I once had--Dodge ram--but never less--I now have titan 2004 crew cab--anyways, In back of the gauges there is a small pc board that carrie...
