Good truck, but has some flaws
May 19, 2018
2017 Titan XD Platinum Reserve. Overall it is exactly what I needed. It has the weight capacity and the power to meet or exceed all my expectations for my personal contracting business. The things I don't like: the interior design most of all, when you fold the back seats up and put down the "platforms" to utilize the back as storage, there is not a lot of room back there. (my Ford 150 super crew has a completely flat floor and thinner seats that fold up and it offers almost twice as much storage). When I put the truck in DRIVE, the shift lever completely covers the defrost and rear defrost buttons and they are almost inaccessible, really silly. There are no small storage places in the drivers area to put pens, a comb, and any small items. I had to modify the center counsel with plastic because things that are placed in the "business card holder" fall right through into the abyss of the center counsel. As far as comfort from the drivers seat, its ok, but I would rather drive my Ford any day, the Ford is much more user friendly and comfortable. Thing I do like: nicely built truck, the Rockford Fosgate sound system is incredible, The seat heaters/coolers, the stitched leather seats, the overall exterior and interior look. I really like it overall. To jump to a 3/4 ton with an American made would have been $12,000 to $17,000 more. I bought it used with 18K on it and the price was 35K, very good value! This is a true 5/8 ton truck.
