2006 Nissan Titan SE 4dr King Cab SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I bought my 2006 used in 2011 with 75K miles. Since then it needed new e-brake lines, front coils (broken), front disks, new exhaust (not surprising), hesitated when cold, and repairs for rear hub gaskets, ball joints, etc. to the tune of 7K in repairs. Rarely got better than 10 MPG around town. I put less that 20K on this in 3 years. Good looking, well laid-out truck, but not reliable.


Favorite Features

Good looking. Sprayed-on bed liner. Bed attachment points. Dampened tailgate. Steering-wheel controls Power driver seat. Flip-up/Flip-down rear seats. Sliding rear window.


Suggested Improvements

No truck should need this many repairs in so short a time.

2006 Nissan Titan LE FFV 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The driver seat (capt. chair) does not allow full size people to set comfortable like Ford and Chevy. Slip feature causes the vehicle to lose power, which leads to getting stuck in mud or snow much easier than the competition. After about 5000 miles rattles and squeaks appear. The heated seats are more like warmer seats. Front-end sits too low (does not set level) Major vibration at 80 mph on cement roads. Difficult to change oil. After only 200 miles I have a major warranty list. After washing it the first time I would say there are too many emblems, it needs less external detail. It does have great power and sound system.


Favorite Features

Power and torque, sound system, rear slider, tool box, auto up and down windows, sprayed in bed liner.


Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the slip system it does not work. Auto dim rear view mirror needs a switch to permanently turn it off, Thicker Bigger and more plush seats. 10 way adjustable pass seat. I thought the fit and quality would be better. Less road and muffler noise.

Review

I was initially excited about purchasing a 2006 Titan; however, on my way home from the dealership the vehicle started to experience brake problems and a vibrating steering wheel. This vehicle has already been in the shop three times, all four rotors and pads have been replaced--to no avail. Nissan has been uncooperative and the dealership is incompetent. On paper, the specs look great, but I'm seriously concerned about the safety and reliability of this truck. I've also started experiencing engine hesitation and rattling from underneath the bed. This is my second and last Nissan. I performed some research on the internet and these problems appear somewhat common.


Favorite Features

The radio is good and the engine has a lot of power.


Suggested Improvements

Heavy duty brake upgrade; eliminate vibration in steering wheel; improve customer service. If Nissan did this, then the Titan would probably be a worthy purchase.

Review

Owned this truck for 7 years and had many problems with it. There were also many recalls. Looks nice but not very tough. Nissan also did not help me out when needed. I was a Nissan owner for 20 years (Pathfinder & Exterra before the Titan) but because of Nissan not caring about my problems I have now switched to Toyota.


Favorite Features

Looks good.


Suggested Improvements

Build a tougher more reliable truck! Take care of your loyal customers.

Review

Got this car brand new from a dealer in 2006 here is a list of all problems i had exhaust leak at 32 km axle seal leak at 55 km breaks wore out every 12 to 15 km emergency breaks still doesn't works (dealer said it's normal) very weak to haul heavy loads! what i do like about it that it is comfortable inside for a longer trips. Interior design is very simple and easy. average on mixed driving maybe 13.5 mpg.
