Best Beast Out There
July 4, 2017
Early on I debated whether to get the Toyota Tundra or the Nissan Titan. But the price difference led me to buy the Titan new in March 2010, and have really loved it ever since. It's strong enough to haul all the toys (uphill too without the engine revving) to include an ATV and trailer, boat or camper, yet still comfortable enough to take the family to church. I've had three issues with it. One, the original Goodyear tires lasted me only 37K miles. Two, the console that holds the sun glasses and blue tooth came off about 3 years in, just out of warranty. The dealership wanted over $400 to replace it so I just purchased a $3 bottle of Gorilla glue and repaired it myself. And three, the cheap plastic throughout and even on some of the outside door settings started to fade early on and now look gray rather than black. As for service, and thanks to Youtube videos out there, I'm been able to easily change ALL the fluids. In coming to Arizona since, I've seen several Titans where the clear coat is showing, but my paint job still looks brand new. I guess that may be a concern for the folks here, and if they always parked it outside in the sun. The only thing I would have liked to have when I got it would have been a back up camera. It does come with sonar, but both would have been nice. So, I bought one myself and will be putting it on later this week. Gas mileage has never been that outstanding. I average around 14 mpg. On two trips, one where the speed limit was only 55, I actually did in fact average about 21 mpg. Moving from Tennessee to Arizona she got about 18 mpg. Pulling anything, and I get about 11-13.
