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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2004 Nissan Titan Owner Comments

problem #5

Oct 202006

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 31,500 miles


My entire rear axle had to be replaced at 31,500 miles on my Nissan Titan. It started howling and smoking when driving to moab. The dealer replaced the entire rear axle. Thankfully I was not at highway speeds when the rear end failed. In addition, the vehicle has had 4 sets of brakes/rotors/calipers on the vehicle and is starting to exhibit signs of needing the fix again.

Front brakes causing heavy steering wheel shaking along with feeling of truck frontend bouncing and leaving road contact when brakes are applied have contacted local dealer who stated no mandated recall for this braking problem although they are aware of some other similar complaints about the brakes not working correctly and causing loss of steering ability due the wheel shudder

Titan 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,662 miles
Purchased a new 2004 Nissan Titan le truck on 10/23/2004 and it has since had to have new brake pads and rotors 3 times in 7 months with only 19281 miles driven on the truck. The first replacement was at 4662 miles on 12/13/04, the 2nd replacement was at 8416 miles on 1/26/05, 3rd replacment was at 15755 miles on 4/26/05 and 4th replacement is needed now. When the pads and rotors start failing, very harsh steering vibrations occur when the brakes are applied. This has a great potential for causing serious accidents especially in inclimate weather. I have complined to the dealership where I have had it serviced all 3 times so far and I have also contacted Nissan's customer service department and have yet to recieve any information that they have a fix for this problem except to continue to replace the pads and rotors every 2000-3000 miles, but what happens when the warranty runs out at 36000 miles. This problem should be addressed and not left to cause a serious accident or death. I know I am not the only person having problems with the brakes because if you google search Nissan Titan brake problems on the web you will find numerous forums of people discussing the same problems I am having with my brakes. Please help with this issue before it is to late and someone is killed.

problem #2

Mar 052005

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,000 miles
Front rotors warping which causes poor drivability and difficulty controlling the vehicle under normal braking conditions. Nissan has issued a tsb and vehicle was serviced under this tsb at 4000 miles, problem recurred at 7500 miles. Nissan service states there has been many complaints with this vehicle and will again service at no cost. I am unaware at this time if this will fix the problem.

problem #1

Jan 102005

Titan 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,000 miles
Steering shakes violently when brakes are applied. Very hard to control at freeway speeds. Had it repaired at dealership at 9K miles, its back again at 13K. I cant believe Nissan has not recalled this yet - its a lawsuit waiting to happen, and even worse a real safety hazard for everyone on the road.
