2006 Nissan Titan SE 4dr King Cab SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)
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.
Sprayed-on bed liner.
Bed attachment points.
Power driver seat.
Flip-up/Flip-down rear seats.
Sliding rear window.
No truck should need this many repairs in so short a time.
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.
Power and torque, sound system, rear slider, tool box, auto up and down windows, sprayed in bed liner.
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.
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.
The radio is good and the engine has a lot of power.
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.

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.
Build a tougher more reliable truck! Take care of your loyal customers.
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.
cd changer, six passenger if needed.
better shocks and spring leafs, improve mpg!! and a bit stronger motor add hp!
