I have same problem as everyone else with cracked exhaust manifolds starting around 65000 miles. Expensive to replace so I have no choice but to listen to a horrible exhaust leaks. Next is the rear axle seals first around 65000.replaced 2X. After talking to Nissan tech who is a friend apparently its a very common problem. The axle tubes tend to warp causing a leak all over tires N brakes and eventual failure of gears inrear pumpkin if not caught. Just waiting for it to happen again. Brakes have always been a problem. Every 7000 brakes N rotors R shot and need replacing. Pedal always has a mushy feel when U occasionally need to slam on the break. Goes all the way to the floor even when brakes R good.

My 2004 Nissan Titan with 81K mile has 2 cracked exhaust manifolds. Both passenger and driver sides have crack just in front of last cycle on both sides. My truck was running fine one night. The next morning my truck was sounding like it had an exhaust leak. Send my truck in to have recalls address and it was confirmed by Nissan mechanics that both sides are cracked. Was told it would be about $3000 to replace both sides. Many people have reported this issue and nothing has been done.

Titan 8-cyl

  • 100,000 miles
During routine recall for ECM module the dealer informed me that both exhaust manifolds are cracked as this has been a recurring issue with this model vehicle causing exhaust fumes to enter the cabin and also cause poor performance with the vehicle. Dealer quoted this as a $3200 repair and will not assume any portion of the repair. Dealer "beaverton Nissan" has informed me that this issue is due to the poor quality of the exhaust manifolds any possible faulty welds on the product combined with material that is too thin to start with. The presence of exhaust fumes in the cabin while idling and/or driving is a severe safety hazard. I have opened a case with Nissan North America and have been advised by three independent mechanics to park the vehicle until it is safe to drive.
