Default Nissan Titan

Well after checking out the Ford Dodge and Toyota I bought a Titan earlier this week. I won't be towing anything for a few more weeks but should be a nice upgrade from my Jeep.

I just bought a new Titan Tuesday night. It was much cheaper than the Z71 I was looking at due to the employee VPP pricing I got through my friend who works at the Nissan plant in Canton, Ms. A ton of compliments on it in the two days I've had it. I can't wait until I hook it up to the boat for the first time.

Does the truck have some speed with that 5.6L in it?

I'd own one in a minute if they would build a 3/4 ton model. I don't need to carry a lot a weight alot of times but I don't want to limit my options. My bet is that it would tow most trailer boats just fine.
Good luck with your new ride.

What stuck out or sold you on the Titan?

The Titan has the most power, felt great on the test drive( seem to have a smother ride and much better steering), made in the usa (unlike most us car makers), was $4,000 less then the next closest, and the largest back seak (crew cab)/ the same as the the dodge mega cab.

I hope she lasts.

I have 5,500 miles on my Titan after one year. No problems so far, but that's not alot of miles. I don't use it day-to-day. I use it as a recreational vehicle. It tows my boat very, very well. It produces alot of torque down low which is why it works so well for towing.

I have an 05 titan with over 14K miles on it and all is well. Pulls like a beast and acts more like a 3/4 ton truck than a 1/2 ton truck.

how is the interior of the titans set up? I have been toying around with getting a new truck, but for me I have one requirement that I consider an absolute must, a front bench seat. I've driven a few of the newer F150's, and while they are nice and have plenty of power, the full console that extends to the dash, and especially the console mounted shifter is a turnoff to me. Chevy seems to be pushing the front consoles as well. While they are nice, I just think they are in the way for my uses.

I have an '04 Titan Crew Cab LE 2WD - It just turned 2 yrs old (bought March '04) and I have 41,000 miles on it. Put new tires on at 40k and, aside from having to do the brake recall for the '04's at about 25k, have not had any problems at all . . .

You can get a front bench seat with the base and SE models . . . of course, they may offer the front bench on the LE models now - I haven't checked . . .

what type of fuel mileage #'s are you seeing? I was reading one of the titan forums, and the numbers somewhat concerned me.

My 04 SE 2wd gets a rock steady 15.4 mpg back and forth to work. I have gotten over 17 on trips where I can do 70 without having to slow down like on the freeway on a trip out of town. I have 20K on it and no problems at all. In a month I'll be hooking up a new GB 2240sx to it which should be an ideal tow weight for it.

Just about dead on the mileage that I get (of course, it is very difficult NOT to step on the gas in that truck). Mileage drops of 1-2 mpg when they bring in the "winter gas" but goes right back up again in the summer.

15-16 average with 17 on hwy. Towing 11 but then again they all drop down with a big boat. Love the power of this 1/2 ton truck. Large interior and bench seating is available if thats your thing

I looked at one at a dealer today...was meaty looking....except the rear end. My Ranger has a bigger diferential. Otherwise its nice looking. I like the big factory tires they put on there.

man that tundra looks like a blue tampon, I drove a Titan as rental for a week and loved it, couldn't tell you about mpg as my foot was hammer down all of the time.

When I decide to get off of my wallet I will look at the king cab 4x4 Titan as a replacement vehicle....
