Passenger seat back on 2004 Nissan Titan became very loose and wobbly. I had a Nissan service look at it and determine it needed replacing. When the new frame arrived from Nissan, it was exactly like the original frame. The service center had to reinforce the frame so it would be rigid and safe. I still have the original seat frame in my possession for inspection. I believe this seat frame does not meet safety standards.

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,500 miles
I have a 2004 Nissan Titan le extend cab with off road package and towing package. I have had to have the brakes looked at about every 20K miles. I currently have 67K on it, and I had it in the shop for 3 day while waiting on Nissan Corp to decide if they would still cover the brake defect. The dealer told us they could only turn the rotors and replace the pads, which they did 2X's. now it needs new rotors and pads, and suddenly the recall is no longer in effect, so I will have to pay over $500 to get this done. I refuse, and I am still waiting on Nissan Corp to call me. I will never buy another Nissan again, their customer service is horrible.
