Most unreliable truck I've owned.

It did not meet my any of my expectations. I've already owned the big three other brands and I wanted to step out of the box and try something new. That was a big mistake after two months of ownership. It had so many issues you name it it had it from electrical to suspension to transmission and let's not forget paint faded issues. My brand new 2017 Nissan Titan XD at the time spent more than spent ten months off and on combine at different dealerships. They only knew how to sell the truck but had no clue on fixing recurring issues, to name a few lol. Let's begin transmission, electrical, power steering, suspension, brake related issues, paint starting to crack and fade within seven months of ownership. Till this day the list continues... Smh

So far a great truck

Interior is nice in this truck, tons of storage which I need. Electronics are nice, but the NAV system definitely needs an update. Super comfortable and handles well. Gas mileage is what's expected but already 4mpg better than my old truck.

Does the job with luxury and class

So I finally retired my 2002 Duramax after 16 years of great service. What to get? As I’ve gotten older, my towing needs have been reduced as I’ve downsized my campers. Over time I went from large 5th wheels to our current 35’ drag behind which weighs just over 9,000lbs loaded. Since the wife was starting to complain about the rough ride of our 3/4 ton HD truck, I started looking at 1/2 ton since there were many configurations that should accommodate our weight. As I started to do my research, my conclusion was that a 35’ sail behind a 1/2 ton truck was not a good idea, primarily because most of these trucks have gotten lighter over the years. And simple physics will tell you that you want some weight in the truck to haul a large camper. Well that, and the very best weight distributing anti sway hitch you can afford. One truck intrigued me, though. The Nissan Titan XD had added weight, primarily by building a stouter frame and adding heavy duty brakes. Once I started looking more closely, it was also an attractive piece of machinery. Most important, my wife was happy with the ride. Although they offered a Cummings diesel, I was looking gas, primarily because this is my daily driver, and many short trips are just not what diesel is built for. Looking at reviews on YouTube, a straight comparison of this truck in gas vs. diesel proved that the gas engine was up to the task, in fact it out pulled the diesel on the Ike in Colorado. Check it out, So I went all the way out to Texas from SC to buy one, with low miles and plenty of warranty left. (Starting in 2017, it’s bumper to bumper 5 years and 100,000 miles, nice). Had a nice 1,300 mile check out ride home, and it was a very comfortable large touring vehicle. I was impressed. However, it needed a towing test. Well, we had scheduled a 4 day trip to a campground I Georgia prior to buying, so I got the chance pretty quickly. Having read all about towing with gas vs. diesel, I was frankly amazed at how well this thing handled my trailer. Sure, I knew the trailer was there, but no more so than it was behind my Duramax. We had hills on the interstate and on secondary roads, and yes, it shifted more, but I never saw anything near the red line as it downshifted. In fact, either down or up shifts ever got close to 4,000 rpm and my overall mpg was between 8 and 9 as I expected. So I was a happy camper. Still am, by the way. This is a gorgeous truck, I opted for some of the bells and whistles, but not all. Saved 500lbs on payload getting a gasser, and am saving at the pump every week. So, so far, so good, will update if that changes.

Great truck for everyone

The Titan XD is a great truck for buyers who need a 3/4 ton truck that has the price and handling of a 1/2 ton truck. It has plenty of power with the Cummins motor and is a joy to drive. Much smoother than my previous 1/2 ton truck.

So far great mileage!

Love everything about this truck so far. Bought it after we got the 8th safety recall on our 2014 Ram diesel as well as a ECM failure. Getting 16.7 mpg driving mixed city and highway while empty. Pulls our 7000 pound 5th wheel just as well at the same 10 mpg. Kept the Ram in case the XD wasn’t up to the task. Putting it up for sale. Don’t understand reviews that call the 5.0 Cummins slow. While not as quick as the new diesel Fords I have driven it is quicker than my Ram with its 3.42 rear axle. The 5.0 Cummins is also quieter than the 6.7 Cummins.

Transmittion is worthless

TodayvI sit on the 95 in Vegas because the transmittion is trash. This is the 4th time we've had trannies probs. First was a total replacement by Cummings. Its updates were just done. Thinking of buying a ford... this towing BS is wrong, this transmission faults is a travesty for a 63k truck.

Totally regret purchase

Purchased with Cummins diesel brand new. Multiple returns to the dealership for warranty work. Latest issue caused major engine shut down and white exhaust. Turns out issue was DEF sensor, system was consuming DEF abnormally fast. Only 4 days after DEF sensor warranty repair, engine light turned on. Returned to dealership who is telling us we need to cough up $8k to replaced a failed catalytic converter because we’re over the 50k emissions warranty (we’re at 77k). We are disputing this with Nissan corporate but strongly believe the DEF sensor directly contributed to the cat failure being that it’s a major component of the emissions system. Nissan just started incorporating Diesel engines in their line of vehicles around 2015/2016, based on that alone we should have never purchased. However this BS warranty issued is settled, after the truck gets fixed by a REAL diesel repair shop, we’ll be getting rid of it.

Most comfortable truck I've ever owned

Truck isnover built and tows amazing. Numbers dont tell you the story of this truck, but towing anything within its price range I does it better then my f150 and Silverado I had before. The interior is also the quitest and most comfortable I've ever sat in for a truck.
