Editor's Overview

The 2018 Nissan Titan offers bold looks and a standard V8 engine, not to mention the best full-size truck warranty in the business. However, while the Titan offers some innovative features and competitive pricing, it lacks the sophistication, towing and hauling abilities of rivals like the Ford F-150, Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado.

I have a 2018 titan xd and it is a good all around truck. The fuel mileage is good around 20 mpg. It has a lot of torque for pulling. I haven't really had any major issues with it. The seats are amazingly comfortable and in my opinion is the best bang for your buck.

NHTSA Campaign:
18V240000
Summary:
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain 2016-2018 Nissan Titan, 2016 and 2018 Nissan Titan XD vehicles. Accessories installed on these vehicles reduced the load carrying capacity, however, a Load Carrying Capacity modification label was not installed, possibly allowing the vehicle to be overloaded. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, "Tire Selection and Rims."
Consequence:
An overloaded vehicle can increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Nissan will notify owners and provide a new modification label, with installation instructions, free of charge. The recall began on June 4, 2018. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-867-7669.
