2005 Nissan Titan Base Model 5.6L from North America


Excellent quality vehicle


After 10K miles the front brake rotors warped. Evidently this was a known issue and the dealer fixed it under warranty. They also extended the warranty on the brakes for 3 years. Nice..

General Comments:

I use this truck as a work truck. It has an aluminum shell with ladder rack on the back. It is the base model of the quad cab design.

As others have mentioned, the inside is cavernous, I cannot believe the room it has especially in the rear.

Power is more than adequate and handling is nice as well.

Normally I don't like large vehicles like this, which is my only gripe, but I needed the room to carry more tools (I was driving a company Tacoma).

After the brakes were fixed, I have never had another problem with it.

I own a Nissan Quest as well, and both vehicles have been typical Japanese autos, meaning extremely reliable. If you need a good reliable truck with power to haul your stuff, you cannot go wrong with this one.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2005 Nissan Titan SE 5.6 Endurance V8 from North America




Absolutely nothing!

General Comments:

This is one serious truck! It is by far the most powerful 1500 regular production full size pickup on the market!! (minus SVT Lightening and Ram SRT-10 of course). During my first test drive, I became aware that the Endurance V-8 is noticeably more powerful than the Hemi V-8 in the Dodge Ram.

The truck has never failed me yet and gets decent gas mileage considering it is a full size truck.

The interior is immense and provides more than enough room for four. I drove every 1500 on the market and the name Titan speaks for itself. I couldn't resist waiting for the 2006 interior upgrade and facelift! Makes my old Tundra look like a wimp!

Hard to believe it is "noticeably" more powerful than the 345hp Hemi powered Dodge Ram. The Titan is definitely not the most powerful V-8 powered, 1500 series pickup out there.

Correct about the Hemi Ram having more horsepower, however, the big difference is in the gearing of the transmission. Both have five-speed automatics, but the Titan is geared to give you more low end power.
