Comfortable and easy to drive.

Very comfortable, easy to drive, repairs have been minor, wish it got better gas mileage, technology is there if you want it, such as mobile use from the radio, outside heating of mirrors, paint is just starting to peel, and dislike the plastic lenses on the lights exterior only.

- Sharon S

Titan is the most dependable vehicle I have ever owned.

It's a very dependable vehicle great on gas I love the way it looks and feels it's a good looking truck and accessories wise it very comfortable. Rain snow good weather never fazes the vehicles. I travel a lot for the company, and it never lets me down.

- Mark V

You can change the radio station and volume with the wheel.

We keep having to jump it. Battery issues. It sits five people very comfortably. Good radio, nice base. Drives fairly smooth. Very safe. Easy to drive. Front windows have automatic roll down if you want. Only the front windows have automatic roll down.
