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

Review

As most people, I do spend some time on the highway, but as a forester, this truck sees substantial 4-wheel drive time. This ranges from 6-18" of "old- growth" dust on most of our haul roads in August to driving on 12-24" of fresh snow in December. After driving about 7,000 miles, this truck is getting between 12-16 mpg, but I consider that pretty fair after 3/4-ton GMC & Ford 4x4's getting between 10-13 mpg. Truck has plenty of power, but a transmission that shifts down two gears at the slightest nod to want to pass someone on the highway ...trying to get used to this! Annoying factors include windshield wiper proximity to wheel, powertrain hum at 55+, poor A/C controls and poor 4x4 tires.

Favorite Features

Plenty of horsepower, excellent ground clearance, fair turning radius, nice size and proportionality, big interior and nice bed with rail system.

Suggested Improvements

Needs better ergonomics; brakes not protected from dirt & prone to squeal, needs better seals and air filtering for dust. Cruise control is odd and combined with transmission that wants to shift, it only holds speed to + or - 2-3 mph on what I consider normal hills.
