Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Nissan 2004 Titan pickup and front brake problems. The brakes are vibrating when you come to a stop. The Nissan dealership describe it as warped rotors on both front brakes. The Nissan dealership said they would temporarily fix the problem until Nissan came out with a permanent fix. As you apply the brakes the steering wheel will shake violently. The consumer has not had the temporary fix done, still waiting on Nissan for the recall notice. The Nissan dealer said that Nissan is working on a permanent fix. Consumer states that when brakes are applied steering is hard to control.

Vibrations in front end due to bad rotors. Took to dealer and he said they would have to cut the rotors and replace pads because of overheating problem with the rotors. Manufacturer said that they were aware of the problem, waiting to get new rotors so they can replaced. Manufacturer will extend warranty for 3 years.

At 13,000 miles, my truck has been to the Nissan dealer 3 times for brake roter problems. The rotors warp and cause violent shaking of the stering wheel when braking. The truck will also pull to the left when braking. This seems extremely dangerous and it is very dissapointing that Nissan hasn't fixed this problem.

Purchased vehicle in August 2004, truck started to shake slightly when brakes were applied at around 7000 miles. Had brakes/rotors replaced at approximately 11000 miles when the shaking made the vehicle unsafe to drive. I am now at 17000 miles and the truck is doing the same thing. Starts off as a slight shutter, and progresses to the point where the steering wheel practically shakes out of driver's hands.

Truck vibrates very roughly and brakes push down low to the floor when brakes are applied. Brakes were first serviced at 4,503 miles on September 24, 2004. Again truck started to vibrate when brakes were applied, and had to be pushed hard and low to floor. Brakes were again serviced at 8,795 miles on January 18, 2005. Truck currently has 12,565 miles and truck again vibrates when brakes are applied, and brakes need to be pressed hard and go low to the floor. Nissan has been notified and waiting for contact for service of truck. In addition, the following items have been noted with Nissan: There is a clunking noise when shifting gears (possible drive shaft problem), truck runs very rough and loud (possible belt tension problem), the radio has bad reception and the dashboard rattles. In addition, it was noted to Nissan that the driver's side mirror reflects the dashboard when driving at night, which is very distracting when looking into the driver's side mirror in order to change lanes.

When brakes were applied vehicle did not stop properly. Took vehicle to dealer, and consumer was informed that rotors were warped, and undersized, making it hard to handle vehicle when applying the brakes. Contacted Nissan customer service and they confirmed the vehicle had been manufactured with undersized rotors and brake pads. They would not replaced undersized rotor of pads. They would/and did turn the original rotors and replaced pads with identical undersized pads. While in stop and go traffic brakes became less and less affective possible from over heating.

I purchased a 2004 Nissan Titan in November, at about 2,500 miles I noticed a slight shudder when I applied my brakes at higher speeds. The situation deteriorated over the next thousand miles or so until I could feel the shudder when I used my brakes going just a couple miles an hour. The dealership replaced the the pads and machined the rotors which took care of the problem, but let me know that there was a good chance this would occur again. I was told that Nissan had a permanent fix for the problem, but since this was the first occurence I wasn't elligible for that repair.

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

I purchased a 2004 Nissan Titan le in November of 2004. When the vehicle reached a little over 4,000 miles the brakes started to shudder and the steering wheel would vibrate and also the brake pedal. The local Nissan dealership replaced the brake pads and ground the rotors and the problem appeared fixed. After another 2,000 miles of driving the brake pedal had to be pushed further and further closer to the floorboard to get brakes to stop the truck. Then the steering wheel began to vibrate along with the pedal. The truck was taken back to the local dealership again and the rotors were turned again appearing to solve the problem. After about 200 miles the brakes began to fade again. The steering wheel and the pedal have not started to vibrate yet but going with the past history of the problem it should only be a matter of time. I want Nissan to fix the problem immediately. The problem could not only be a safety problem due to no brake pedal when applied but also vibration from applying pedal. Lastly a truck with only 6500 miles should not keep getting the rotors turned over and over.

With 7000 on the odometer the vehicle developed a terrible case of squealing brakes, where Nissan replaced brakes and rotors. Now, with 14000 on the odometer the vehicle has developed terrible shudder of steering wheel when brakes are applied, worse at higher speeds. Dealer has ordered new brakes and rotors for me, waiting for them to come in.

Titan 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,709 miles
Premature failure of front brake rotors. Front brakes shudder and vibrate extremely bad when brakes are applied. Dealer will refinish rotors and install new front brake pads for a temporairy repair. I have driven 9400 miles total on this vehicle with three set of front brakes replaced. Have not towed any trailer or vehicle with it to cause failure. Braking system is insufficient for this vehicle and Titan trucks must be recalled for the safety of the owners of this product immediately. This is a severe safety issue that can cause an accident and injury to it's occupants. Nissan will not acknowledge this problem to it's owners and the NHTSA must step in and have them recalled at once.

To whom it concerns, I own a 2004 Nissan Titan truck that has a major flaw in the braking system. I seriously think that I will be causing an accident if this problem is not fixed. I've been back to the dealership 3 times to have this problem fixed. They admitt to the faulty brakes sytem, but do not have a permanent fix. I am very concerned for the safety of my family. Please contact Nissan and force them to recall all the Titans and fix this well known problem. I can't believe in the year 2005 it is ok to have thousands of trucks roaming our highways with faulty brakes?
