One thing you'll notice is all the positive reviews of this truck were written within a year of owning it. I waited 7 years.
I can tell you for certain that the Nissan Titan is one giant money pit. It will have problems and Nissan will not support you. I will never own another Nissan.
Power windows, stereo, brakes, and rotors will fail/warp and you will spend tons trying to fix these issues. Not to mention the squeaks, whines and rattles that Nissan will not be able to pinpoint or fix.
Driving this truck is akin to what it might be like to drive a freight train. Or... driving a really nice looking freight train. I only had 72,000 miles on it when I ditched it and I was going on my 4th set of tires. Good tires. Is this a problem? Nope. Not according to Nissan. They say it's totally normal. They say the truck is so powerful (it is) that it eats tires. Truthfully- this truck has far more power than a Ford or Chevy fan would care to admit, but that doesn't make it worth owning.
Don't buy a Titan. I upgraded to a Limited Tundra and I won't look back.
This is a horrible truck.
It is pretty to look at but not built very well.
At just 117K miles it needs an all new rear end due to a known problem that Nissan is aware of but does nothing about.
The pumpkin on the rear axle heats up and destroys the gears inside.
A $4000 repair on a three yr old truck.
They apparently made the truck look nice but didn't care what they were putting under the hood.
Run don't walk away from this one!
Go for something reliable like Ford.
I would never buy or recommend a Nissan ever again.
This is just an expensive piece of junk.
I purchased this titan used with 15,000 miles. Very good value and a tough looking truck. Very comfortable and drives well. I am experimenting with gas mileage. I tried e85 flex fuel and just finished that tank getting 11 mpg city. I have gone back to gasoline hoping for better results. I also have ordered a bed cover hoping that will add some mpg. Overall very happy with the truck, its comfort and power.
My 2nd Titan. I have the fully loaded LE with navigation. I compared it to the Tundra which I drove immediately beforehand and even though the Tundra is a newer model and has more hp, the Titan just feels faster and the interior is more luxurious. I compared it to a top-of-the line Tundra.
Overall piece of Crap ! Not a good investment - Buy Ford or Chevy

I am amazed that the Titan has as many mechanical problems and lack of reliablility. I paid good money for a truck that has not lived up to it's past ratings. I am very disappointed and wish I would have bought a Ford or Chevrolet. I had a 98 Z-71 that was a better truck than the 2009 Nissan Titan.
