Japan isn't capable of building anything heavy duty.
They shouldn't even try.

I don't think it has anything to do with the quality of the truck. I'm sure it has more to do with meeting the demand and keeping profits in check. This was a new area for them. Us markets have had the benefits of many years into packaging a fullsize with the keyword profit. Titans sell well but aren't as much of a profit per vehicle as a comparable US brand. I hate to use a cheesy line but F&F said it best, "you can't just jump in the ring if you think you can box".

you may be right .... but the titan is one badass truck and alot of them look insanely cool it would be a tough one between Silverado SS and Titan both trucks look amazing in my opinion!

You have to be kidding. Have you ever looked at the rear on titan. I sure hope someone doesn't intend to pull much with that. I've seen somewhere that there are problems with those things holding together when the truck is used for towing. Its funny I just posted something to this effect on another board. nissan has been building full size trucks for how long now? oh wait I think the train has left the station like over 50 yrs ago:rotflmao: I'm actually going to be in the market for a newer tow vehicle in about 1yr. I wouldn't even consider anything but a DOMESTIC vehicle for this job.

here ya go just found a few complaints, this one is great

Scott of Kingston NY (10/05/05)
I bought a 2004 Nissan Titan. Back in Nov. of 2004. This truck did not have the towing package, but it did have a tow hitch on it. I've had 3 rear differentials replaced and when the 4th differential blew Nissan gave me a brand new 2005 Nissan Titan. The first differential on the 04 blew at 6,000 miles and then each differential after that took about 3,000 mile to blow (so at roughly 9,000, and 12,000 then was given the new truck).

After I received my 2005 Nissan Titan (this truck did have the Tow Package on it) I put roughly 7500 miles on it and the Rear Differential then blew in this truck. Nissan repaired once again and when I told them I did not want the truck back they told me I had no choice and I would have to go to lemon law arbitration (which I can't do because it is a new vehicle). The only items I've towed with either vehicle is a 5,000lb. U-haul and a 3,500lb. snowmobile tailer. The truck's towing capacity is 9,400 lbs.

Nissan has some very large Quality Control issues at their factories and they are not owning up to it. I now own a $34,000 truck that I can't get rid of without taking a large loss. I just received the truck back and have roughly 9,200 miles on it. I am waiting for next rear differential to break in the next 1,000-2,000 miles. Nissan did take the 2004 Titan back as defective. It was returned about 3 months ago for my new 2005. The old Titan is still sitting in my dealership's parking lot waiting for Nissan to come and pick-up. Wouldn't it make sense for Nissan to send out their R&D team to get it and find out what the problem is.

I dont believe any of those bullshit stories cause nissan and other japanese companys dont half ass there products like america does. Like i said i am not a fan of nissan but i know quality when i drive it. i drove the silverado's and titan killed it in power and torq same with f-150 and the dodge ram i never drove cause i dont have any intrest in dodge at all and what i hear is usally negative stuff... but i guess u hear negative **** about everyhting so its better off going out and seeing for yourself and even if the stories are true you really dont know how the drivers treated there vehicles and you know theres gonna b problems with all vehicles ......

The japs don't half ass their products:rotflmao: I owned a Toyota Tacoma a few years back. I bought it NEW. It was the second worst vehicle I've ever owned, why?

1. less than 6 months old the AC went out.

2. In the first 2 months the brake light came on and stayed on. Brought it back they fixed it.

3 at almost a year the radio went out.

4 Major recall( or I should say the secret campaign phrase toyota uses to avoid the "recall bad rap" on the entire front end. This problem was major. It involed several other trucks that the control arms would break off and the driver would loose control. Upon inspection of a truck if it was cracked toyota bought them back. If it wasn't cracked they welded a support bracket that was a 2 day job. They rented me a car and kept my truck for 2 days. I bet ya never heard about that problem. Would you want to keep a new vehicle that had a weld job that was suppose to be designed to keep your NEW truck from having a catastrophic failure?

5. The seat material began to split on the side, not at a seam. It also was not punctured by an object. Crapyota decided that is was a defect and the truck spent a few more day at an upholstery shop.

6. The brake light came back on. It went back to the shop and was fixed again.

7. Power steering went out.

8. oh almost forgot about the tail light that worked sometimes and eventually would burn out the bulb. I think this was eventually a recall too.

At this point I was sick of the BS and I traded it in on a silver 98 camaro. It was only 2-1/2 yrs old when I traded it in. So is my story BS? Would you like to see proof I owened it? Would you like to see all of the service tickets I had on it?

I also do know of one titan owner who grenaded the rear. He bought the truck new. This was an older guy at work. He claimed he was towing a small load stopped at a light and went to take off hear a noise and the truck wouldn't go anymore.
Yes you are right ALL vehicles have problems, but for anyone to claim foregin vehicles are better is just insane:screwy:

I have to say I liked the Titan better than the silverado but I bought a silverado for some reason.
