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.
