Nissan titan - motor seized up due to defect in temperature gauge.

I bought my Nissan titan pickup as a used vehicle from a dealership. I test drove the truck and heard a small ticking noise. The dealership agreed to fix the issue and I picked it up on a later date. At the time of purchase I also bought the extended 2 year or 20, 000 mile warranty. I had the truck for one and a half years and the motor locked up on the way home from work. The first thing I looked at was the temperature gauge and it was not showing it was running hot. I had to have it towed to a Nissan dealership. They ran diagnostics on the vehicle and called my warranty company which stated that I was slightly over my mileage limit. Therefore I had to pay to have it towed to a local mechanic and will have to pay for out of pocket. I feel that this is an issue that should be addressed with the Nissan factory as I have heard of several issues of the same problem. I have been without it for 3 months now and it still is not fixed. I am a single mother and really do not know where I will get the money to pay for this motor to be rebuilt.

Its is fast comfortable and covers my expectations.

It is comfortable, very spacious. It is a darker color so one might expect it to always alter to a higher temperature but is not the case at all the cold air conditioning neglects that from ever occurring. It is very fast and excels at an exceptional level when hitting anything above fifty. Any sort of musical interference will presumably improve the car ride which proves why the AUX cord is the key to everything.

It has a really bad turning radius.

This vehicle has kept me safe in a car accident because of its size. This car sits very comfortably as well as a ton of room especially in the back. I like that the door on the bed opens slowly for a safety feature. Something I do not like about this vehicle is the turning radius. When I try to do u turns, I often have to do a three point turn on a major road which is dangerous.

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.

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.

It is well made and it's very dependable, this is my fourth Nissan vehicle the other three lasted a combined 31 years.

This is the fourth Nissan vehicle I've had in 30 years. I have found them all to be very dependable and reliable. The inside of the vehicle is very comfortable and well laid out. It is very good acceleration with a V8 engine however MPG is on the low side, which is the only negative thing I have experienced.

Great performing truck, with lots of power.

Overall the truck is great. Right away I will say the only negative I have found is the gas mileage. Using cruise control and easy on the pedal leaves you around 16-17 mpg consistently. If heavy on the pedal you will have a problem. Other than that it's great with no mechanical issues

I think for the size, it would of gotten better gas mileage like a small SUV.

It has been a dependable car for the 5 years I have had it. I do not like the gas mileage for it is particular size. I constantly have to fill up. It sucks gas bad. It also has road noise. I like the space in the backseat. I also like the bed cover that came with it, I use that often.

Tee is important to know about my car is that I want to keep it and not trade it in. It is a good truck and great for haul things but it is also a luxurious truck.

What I like about my truck it that it sits up high. It is black and beautiful and rides smoothly. Lots of space and can sit 6 comfortably. I dislike that it is a 8 cocker. Therefore it burns a lot of gas. The love hate of it size is that I do not fit well in small spaces.

Reliable comfortable and low maintenance.

This truck is very reliable. I have over 200, 000 miles on it. I have never had to do any major repairs on this vehicle. It is a very smooth riding vehicle. It is a very comfortable vehicle. Our truck has a crew cab and it is very roomy in the backseat.

Paint quality is horrific and suggest upgrading(?) paint job if purchasing a Titan.

Great truck, lots of amenities. Great for pulling boat and hauling. Completely dissatisfied with paint quality. Literally fading in many areas and some areas are peeling. Seems to be common with Nissan....especially the Titans.

It is so dependable. I would happily by a Nissan again and recommend it to others. I would caution them to find a way to keep it cool to prevent brittle plastic on dash and ceiling from cracking.

I love my vehicle because I have had no major problems with it. It's still going strong after ten years. I do dislike the fact that some of the interior plastic trim breaks in the heat.

It's a durable truck that will get you from point A to B reliably.

V8 engine that is very dependable. It's been used for hauling big rocks and tailors. It's a comfortable ride big enough for the whole family.

It has a lot of room, fits 3 car seats in the back comfortably.
