Horrific gas mileage, they are equipped with junk Good Year tires, Nissan service, Nissan service, Nisan service!
I looked very hard at the Nissan Titan, Toyota Tundra, and Chevy Silverado. I ruled out the Silverado when obama and his minions took over GM.
I really liked the Nissan Titan and the Toyota Tundra in terms of performance and features. However, I do not like the new look of the Toyota
Tundra's body style, and I do not like how all of the gages on the dash are placed in tubes.
I elected to purchase the Titan because of the appearance and dash board issues on the Tundra. This has proven to be a big mistake! I can say
after owning this thing for only four months, and having owned many Toyota's in the past, the Nissan experience gets a solid "F" when compared to
the Toyota experience. I will never again purchase another Nissan product!
My problems began shortly after I purchased the vehicle. I mistakenly thought that I had purchased a tire warranty with the truck. I took it to
the dealership on a Saturday morning after discovering that I had picked up a fairly large screw in the driver's side front tire. When I showed
up at the delaership, the line was so long it took me over 30 mintes to work my way up to where I could talk to a service technician.
As I was waiting in line, a young junior technician looking kind of guy came out to me and asked me the purpose of my visit. I mentioned the
problem with the screw in the front tire and he asked me if I had an appointment. When I told him that I did not have an appointment as it would
be rather tough to schedule the day in which I would get a screw in my tire, he sighed and acted very put off.
He then spent the next ten minutes doing everything that he coould to push me off of the lot and to get me to come back after I had made an
appointment. I left and went to Discount Tire where over the course of 20 minutes, I got a warranty package for all four tires and got the tire
Both the driver's side and passenger side window seals on this vehicle leak air and I get to listen to the sound of air swirling through them every
time I drive the truck on the freeway. When I called it to the attention of my service writer at Power Nissan in Chandler, AZ where I purchased
the truck, all he could say is that "they all do that." He told me that they could replace the seals, but it wouldn't make any difference.
The truck also had a very bad rattle on the driver's front side, which I noticed the day I drove it off of the new car lot. The
service technician took the better part of a day to locate the source and it proved to be not one but a total of three mounting bolts for the dash
board, which were left loose at the factory during vehicle assembly.
When they reinstalled the dash board, they crossed up the wiring. When I picked up the vehicle that evening, I discovered that each time I turned
on the headlights, the light for the stereo system went out. Each time I turned the headlights off, the light for the stereo system went back on.
So, I got to return the truck to the dealership the next day to get that problem fixed.
I would also add that during the first round of repairs to the dash board, their service technician was kind enough to get grease on my passenger
front seat and on the passenger front door. So, I made them clean that off when I returned it.
I would give a lot to be able to undo the decision that I made to purchase this truck. I cannot even begin to tell you how unhappy I am with the
whole Nissan experience. I had a Chevy Silverado for 14 years prior to purchasing this truck, and the Titan is most definitely not the truck that
the Chevy was, even though the Chevy was a 2 wheel drive truck and the Titan is a 4 wheel drive truck.
I really wish that I had purchased the Toyota Tundra. Whie I do not think it is as nice looking as the Nissan Titan, the experience of owning a
Toyota is immeasurably superior to the experience that I have had over the four months that I have owned the Nissan Titan. And I see no reason
whatsoever to believe that it is going to get any better.
As they say, "live and learn." As I had to finance the purchase of the Titan, I have no choice but to keep it until I can afford to trade it in
and not lose a lot of money. If there were any way that I could get rid of this truck today and not lose a lot of money, it would be gone before
the sun sets. I can assure you that this Titan will one day soon turn into a Toota Tundra. No more Nissan products and no more Nissan
dealerships for me!
