I recently bought a used 04 Nissan Titan 4 door 4x4. Being a Ford guy, the truck wasn't my first choice. I lined up a couple test drives and the Titan wasn't my first stop. When I test drove the Titan, I fell instantly in love. The ride was extremely smooth and easy to drive. I bought the truck right after and continue to enjoy it. The Titan is loaded with heated seats and a in dash cd changer. What surprised me is that the mpg's are better than the small truck I had traded in for the Titan considering the 5.6L engine under the hood. Little features about the truck have continued to surprise me. Like memory seats and the folding rear seats. The Titan can haul a full load as well. I've already talked about my truck to a friend that will be picking up a Titan soon. Let the features help you make a decision. Nissan hit a home run with this truck!

This is an awesome vehicle. Just wish gas mileage was a bit better, that is the only reason I scored a 4 on performance. I'm getting an average of 14 mpg around town. Tons of Power! Lots of room inside. I have the king cab and the back seat is plenty big for 3 adults to ride. You can't beat a Nissan in reliability!

All Around Great Truck!

I've had the truck for about 6 months and never regretted buying it. Under normal driving in any weather I've never lost contact with the pavement. Off road its even better! Drives better off-road than the Grand Cherokee. Whether the beds full or your towing a trailer, the engines never phased. Great look, great engine, great drive train, and all around great truck.

Four Wheeler Magazine 2004 Truck of the Year

I bought this truck new in 2004 and spec'ed it out with the Big Tow package, the Utility Bed Package (Utili-Track system) and the 4x4 Off-road package; which came with everything but Nav. system and Leather interior. I have commuted to work and back in it and it gets about 13 mpg city and with the tonneau cover on it it gets almost 20 mpg highway. It has towed both of my boats that I have owned (current one is almost 6,000 pounds with the trailer), helped me with 3 moves, and hauled everything I have asked it to haul. It has never left me stranded and all I have done is add a permanent air filter system and changed the fluids regularly. Four Wheel drive works great in snow, mud and the lousy conditions that can be found in the Pacific Northwest; it would climb a tree if I asked it to. Brakes had problems in the beginning (with a recall), but everything fixed under warranty with no questions asked. The truck could be a bit more comfortable for the long haul distances, but it is a truck, not a limo. The comfort level is on par with everything in it's class. The Utili-Track system I have on it makes this truck an infinitely versatile hauler and is what everyone else is trying to copy. I am glad I chose this truck over Ford, Chevy and Dodge because it was what I was looking for a truck to be, and none of the big three was offering anything like what Nissan has to offer in their trucks in the same class. If Nissan puts a diesel engine in this thing and beefs up the suspension to offer up to 1 ton capacity, there is nothing but the unemployment line for the Big Three and Toyota.

One Good Truck

Overall it is a good truck. Lots of power, great in Snow, The king Cab has quite a bit of room in the back. Lots of storage compartments. 14/19mpg on a 4WD Truck. It averaged 17mpg and I drove 85% highway and I have a Heavy foot. I owned an XE for almost 3 years, and my biggest complaint was that the cloth seats stain really easy. Even rain drops would stain my seats, and road noise from the Doors. Great truck for non-optimal road conditions.

Most unreliable truck I ever owned. -brakes were undersized -on my 3rd rear differential -replace catalitic converter -firing sequence was out of sequence -spare tire was up against exhaust deformed tire -steering gear rotted had to be replaced along with power steering hoses And many other poor craftmanship and design items below the price of $1000 too many to mention the truck is a money pit

its man sized and a great truck. use it for towing the boat and hauling gear to go camping like keyaks and other large items. we moved and it was great for getting a lot off stuff in one load. I have made it look good by adding a light rack to the back and a bull bar on the front. There are many different things you could add to make your titan look awesome.
