2004 Nissan Titan 4dr Crew Cab LE Rwd SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

At the time of this review, my truck is almost 14 years old, and I've been the proud owner for about 7 of those years (second owner). With 97,XXX and counting, I see a long future ahead for this one. I plan to hold onto this truck for many years to come.... I purchased the truck with about 38,000 miles, and have not had any major issues to speak of. Other than regular maintenance (fluid changes, tune-up, belts, tires, batteries, etc...), and some minor upgrades (heavy duty shocks, CIA, exhaust, etc...) this truck never see's the shop. It's extremely responsive, has plenty of torque, and makes a great tow vehicle. That said, it's not the most comfortable truck I've owned, nor is the most agile. Still it's a great truck and is probably the best vehicle purchase I've ever made (and I've owned a lot of vehicles), given the price I've paid, and the years of service I expect to get from it.

I really feel I made a great choice in a truck looking back over the thirteen years/200,000 miles I've owned it.

2004 Nissan Titan 4dr King Cab XE Rwd SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Haven't had this truck long but it's great on 300 hp performance with 370ft/lb torque. 32valve 8 cyl. 5 speed auto. 5.6L SE model. I've Towed 6,500lbs and had no issue in power loss. Would have probably maxed it at 9,000 lbs. The only issue is if you don't have 4x4 don't expect to get the best out of this truck. Great truck for casual driving, long rides, work truck, or hauling your RV. Gets the job done right!

2004 Nissan Titan 4dr King Cab SE 4WD SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I bought this used in November 14 for a decent deal. It only had 84K on it. It now has 88k and I feel confident all of the "First Gen" issues have been worked out (headers, rear axle vent fix, recalls, ect) Given the age I will need to change out some front bushing and shocks but other than that, it has been GREAT to have in the snowiest winter I've ever seen here in N.E. Wash it on dry days will keep it most of the rust at bay. Gas mileage is as expected for a 4x4, 12 city, 14-16 HWY.


Best Features

This thing runs like a bat out of H@#%ll. Going from a 2.4 Frontier, it was a drastic change. Good factory sound system. The fact this truck was built in the US. Yes it has Nissan's name but American workers put this truck and engine together. The transmission is the only thing shipped in from Japan.


Worst Features

Manual 4x4 engagement, hard to get it to switch back to 2wd once in 4wd. You have to hit the gas but it does switch back. This being a First Gen, most of the bugs have been worked out. If you buy used, check the rear axle seals and the factory exhaust manifold/header for cracks. Have a Nissan dealer run the VIN to see if these have been fixed. The 2016 is around the corner so will see how that sells.
