It's a nice truck is you never plan on pulling a trailer. Factory paint jobs Nissan trucks last only a couple years until the entire truck needs repainted. I wash and wax mine every week it's only 5 years out and clear coating has begun to fail on the hood and roof
I was surprised at the comfort in a pick up truck, and fuel economy has been better than expected averaging 20 on the road and 17 pulling a trailer loaded with 2 horses. The only complaint I have is the placement of the windsheild wiper control. It is in the way turning the ignition on or off and I usually manage to turn on the wipers on the way. I am hoping to get used to its placement as it is pretty annoying.
2005 Nissan Titanmissmytitan - Kansas City, MO05/24/2010
I bought a used 2005 Titan LE 2 years ago. Just had to trade it in last week due to fuel costs. The Titan has all the power you want and more. I knew buying a fullsize truck would hurt the pocket book with fuel costs...I believe I averaged about 15 mpg mostly city driving. But, the Titan does have the heart of a sports car. The interior is just okay. I loved the center console shifter. The factory Rockford stereo sounded as good as some aftermarket systems. Only problem inside was I thought some of the plastic looked and felt a little cheap. The Driver's leather seat wore fairly quickly as well. Lots of room though. Overall, I loved the truck. No mechanical issues to speak of. Will probably buy another someday when I have less travel for work.
They’re big. They’re bold. They’re kinda in your face. Tall pickup trucks and SUVs have the kind of ride height that gets you over, through, and around the kind of rough terrain which stops other vehicles in their tracks. If you live in a place with lots of snow, mud, or uneven ground, ride height (defined as the distance between the bottom of your truck’s tires and the lowest point on the underside) is probably more important to you than road-hugging and handling characteristics and strong fuel efficiency.
