2008 Nissan Titan King Cab LE FFV 4dr King Cab SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Well my lease is finally up and as stated before I'm buying this truck!!! Nissan tried their best to sell me another one, but they couldn't budge me from purchasing this one. One fine truck. 50K on it and not one issue what so ever. I'm stuck on this one and hopefully it will last many, many more miles.. Fantastic truck... Heard Nissan will be coming with Turbo-Charged version in 2014,, If it's anything like this it will be a winner!!!!!Ride is still outstanding, performance is second to none and it rocks!!!


Best Features

Ride, Comfort, great features.


Worst Features

Provide storage on both sides of truck, not just on left side.

2008 Nissan Titan King Cab New PRO-4X FFV 4dr King Cab 4WD SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I bought a 2008 Pro4X new from Nissan, and it has not been one of my better vehicles.
It's had numerous recalls, the gas milage is terrible, the locking differential has never worked, the driver's seats squeeks loudly, the rear doors rattle, and now the rear bumper is rusting.
This is the last straw for me.
Since the truck is 3 years old, and has over 36K miles, Nissan will not fix the bumper.
I can't believe it!
This truck was nearly $40K, has never been in any kind of accident, and Nissan won't cover rust?!
They told me that the rust warranty only applied to body panels, and bumpers were not covered.
The rest of my truck still looks new, and the rear bumper has a big rust spot!


Best Features

Power and ride quality.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy, tighter cab, better warranty and customer service!

2008 Nissan Titan King Cab New XE FFV 4dr King Cab 4WD SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The 5.6 puts you a quick stomp away from instant gratification. A good mash when you are not loaded will put you in the back seat. The throaty exhaust note is hard to beat. 390 lbs of torque makes the Titan the best tow rig I have ever driven. The suspension is spot-on. The interior is quiet and the seats are awesome. However, the truck has it's down side. The sloping front end and flared rear fenders make judging distance in a parking lot quite difficult- rear blind spots swallow a Caddy with 10ft to spare. The turning radius isn't exactly competitive. Fuel economy is worst in class- mostly highway, I avg'd 14. I got 17 mpg hwy with a tonneau cover and 10 mpg with an enclosed trailer.


Best Features

The sheer power is the best thing this truck has going for it.


Worst Features

This sounds stupid, but the paint is incredibly easy to scratch. Aside from that, the best change would be some modern tech in the intake/fuel system to boost the MPG. 17 should be the average, not the absolute best. I saved serious cash by trading her for a small car AND an old truck for work.

2008 Nissan Titan King Cab SE FFV 4dr King Cab 4WD SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Bought this truck used with 6500 miles on it at a Chevy dealer that was going out of business, got the deal of a lifetime to say the least. The Titan is smooth, fast, reliable, and comfortable with the captains power seat. The only issues I have had were a bad A/C condenser fan, leaky radiator cap, and I fixed the A/C drain tube myself. No squeaks or rattles, solid brakes, handles like a smaller truck. The paint and plastics quality is sub par, other than that and the 12-13 mpg there are no downsides to owning a Titan.


Best Features

Engine power, transmission smoothness, ride quality is great even with cheap OEM tires. Tons of storage, the Tow Package is great, ergonomics are excellent.


Worst Features

Paint quality, interior and exterior plastics need improvement.
