Review of the 2005 Nissan Titan

  • With a stout V8, roomy interior and loads of innovative and useful features, the 2005 Nissan Titan is an impressive full-size that every truck buyer should consider.

    One of the best drivetrains in its class, smooth-riding suspension, spacious and functional cabin, innovative design features, available stability control and side airbags.

Best truck i've ever owned

Vehicle: 2005 Nissan Titan 4dr Crew Cab SE Rwd SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

Purchased my truck used with 36,000 miles from a dealership. This was my second Nissan product. Had a Frontier crew cab that was extremely reliable and was the reason I purchased another Nissan. Have had very good service when oil changes and recalls were performed. Another feather in the Nissan cap. Dealership performance is another reason I bought Nissan. This Titan is solid. I have hauled an economy car from SC to MI without any problems. Have pulled my 18 foot boat on the weekends and it's pulls like a dream. Use the Titan for many other projects and I can't see myself doing without it. Love the styling and always gets compliments. Neighbor bought one because he liked mine.

Great handling truck. Have had it 120 mph on the interstate to pass a few 18 wheelers and had to do a real hard left to not hit the back of another 18 wheeler and on a 2 lane interstate - well I never had to worrry about rolling it or losing it. It just stuck to the road, and with the Goodyear SRA oem tire - go figure. Could have done a better job on the brakes for sure.

This is the second time writing on this truck. Still truly awesome. This truck surpasses anything I ever dreamed about. Fun to drive, fast, dependable and looks great. I'll consider another one if I decide to get one, love this one too much, but leasing it and may consider another lease for business.

Vehicle: 2005 Nissan Titan 4dr Crew Cab SE Rwd SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

This truck has been rock solid since I drove it off the lot. I drive a ton of miles and it is very comfortable. It turns a lot of heads, too. It has some great features for a moderately priced truck. I compared them all but after I drove the Titan, there was no way I would drive any other.




05 titan after 2 years

Vehicle: 2005 Nissan Titan 4dr Crew Cab SE Rwd SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

After two years I still like this truck. Out of the many vehicles I have owned, this is the best. Great power, comfortable, towing is a breeze. If you are in the market for a ½ ton truck that will work like a ¾ ton, I highly recommend driving the Nissan Titan.

Thought I took a step up when I traded my f-250 for the Titan. Wrong! Brake rotors warped less than 5k Mi. Rear door latches work occasionally, even after replacement of both. Vents creak @startup &shutdown still. It drives like a canoe, will not go straight. nervous, twitchy. camber kit installed. 4 trips to dealer, realigned 4 times. told me don't come back. District ser. rep told me the roads have a crown in them, thats the problem. I've been driving longer than he's been breathing, tell me something I don't know. I like the style, power, economy, even the sound. This is truly a d**n nice piece of junk. Thank you so much Nissan. I will recommend anything except Nissan to all listeners.
