Titan 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,503 miles
Truck vibrates very roughly and brakes push down low to the floor when brakes are applied. Brakes were first serviced at 4,503 miles on September 24, 2004. Again truck started to vibrate when brakes were applied, and had to be pushed hard and low to floor. Brakes were again serviced at 8,795 miles on January 18, 2005. Truck currently has 12,565 miles and truck again vibrates when brakes are applied, and brakes need to be pressed hard and go low to the floor. Nissan has been notified and waiting for contact for service of truck. In addition, the following items have been noted with Nissan: There is a clunking noise when shifting gears (possible drive shaft problem), truck runs very rough and loud (possible belt tension problem), the radio has bad reception and the dashboard rattles. In addition, it was noted to Nissan that the driver's side mirror reflects the dashboard when driving at night, which is very distracting when looking into the driver's side mirror in order to change lanes.

The radio component of the stereo system is horrible!! have had it checked three times, and all they say it is is a loose antenna!!!! reception sounds terrible, like pocket transistor radio. Cd player sounds terrific! but, for $1200 upgrade stereo, radio should sound great. Reception fades in and out, and sounds like mono, not stereo.

Titan 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150 miles
The stereo fm stations continuously fade into mono type sound and weak radio reception particularly after engaging bumps in road or making a turn. The sound tends to correct itself temporarily when on smooth road surface or stopped. Dealer blamed the issue on local weak fm broadcast of radio stations. Also stated, nothing can be done and wait for recall.

Horrible fm radio reception. Static, treble fades the automatic feature on the power windows does not function properly. When windows are all the way down and you hit the auto up button, the window tries to go up and then goes back down. It then will not work for several seconds. Low tire pressure light comes on after extended driving.
