You'll Like The 2008 Nissan Titan If...

If you're looking for a big, powerful truck that's out of the mainstream in both style and features, has a really nice interior, a stump-pulling V8 engine and a host of innovations designed around real pickup-truck functions, take a look at the Titan.

It is a perfect sized truck! Not too big, not too small.

The paint has faded a lot and the wheel cover has some wear and tear but that is my only complaint. The truck is very comfortable and is a perfect size. I love this truck so much. I will drive it as long as it runs. I definitely recommend this truck if you are someone looking to purchase a new vehicle. Also is perfect for towing my boats and jet skis!

2008 Nissan titan. A monster of a truck.

There are aspects I quite like. For one thing, I love that you can get a traditional extended cab with rear half-doors, something I rarely see on full-size trucks anymore. I also love the v8, which is immensely smooth and provides good power and sound. And the steering is very tight and responsive, almost car-like, which is surprising in this class.

- Richard B

Durability; especially carrying valuable cargo (family).

Smooth drive diesel engine, hydraulic suspension to relieve tension off axle when hauling. Overall it is been rated for having longevity after 200k miles. As long as a person take care of this truck like you would yourself, all is well. Very roomy, it can fit 6 people when travelling without being uncomfortable.
