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.

2005 Nissan Titan Owner Comments

Titan 8-cyl

  • 38,836 miles


Back in may of 2011 I was driving my Nissan Titan truck down the highway with my two girls 6 & 7 year old when I heard the truck making a noise out of the rear.I slow down and immediately pulled over to the side of road not knowing what had happened. I drove the vehicle back to my home and called the dealership. When I took my 2005 Nissan Titan to the dealership in vineland New Jersey they stated that the problem with my truck was the rear and needed to be replaced. They stated that the repair cost for the whole rear was $3,800 in order for it to be repaired. They stated that my truck was out of warranty by 2 months even though I only had 38,836 miles on it. I asked why couldn't the pumpkin in the rear be fixed and Nissan stated they do not just fix the pumpkin. They would have to replace the whole rear in the truck costing me $3,800. I called [xxx] and spoke to [xxx]. [xxx] rep stated that he has never heard of this problem, part (tt913A582) [xxx] posi. [xxx] stated to me that they make this rear for Nissan. [xxx] stated that Nissan engineers, engineer part and they only make it for them. I took the vehicle to a local shop to be repaired which stated that the repairs would cost me $1,358.90. The auto repair center that I took my Nissan titian to, stated that there was many many many complaints about the rears in the Nissan Titans starting from 2005 to 2010. It was actually being reported online search. As I looked online I could see many complaints about the Nissan Titan rears with the same problem. So my question to the government supervisor paid by taxpayers, does it take 30 people to die in order to fix the problem and blame it on Nissan just like you did to GM. Fix the problem. So go online and read. Take matters seriously!! I extricate people out of vehicles for a living when they are in car accidents dead or alive.

Oil leaking on left rear wheel cause by a bad seal. Truck have been repaired twice by a local licensed shop, . the problem persist. It may be cause by a bad differential. Let me know if is any recalls from factory. Or any on going investigation.

Got in my truck to go to work today and while turning right out of my driveway the engine revved up and I was going no where. I let off the gas and as the motor RPM came down there was a loud bang and the vehicle jumped forward. Continued down the road about 200ft and turned around. Parked the truck. Checked the fluid. Metal shavings and chunks inside with plenty of fluid. Also noticed a leaking rear wheel seal on the drivers side. This truck only has 78000 miles on it. Absolutely unacceptable Nissan.

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • 44,000 miles
I have a 2005 Nissan Titan with only 44000 miles on it. During recent driving it sounded as if the right rear was grinding to pieces. It continually got worse so I looked under the truck to see if there was something that was caught and dragging. It was so loud that people would stare at the truck when it passed by. After it was taken to the garage they discovered that the insides of the right rear axle were almost completely torn apart. It was very fortunate that it did not cause a serious problem while driving. They also found that the left axle was leaking and would likely also break down. The cost to repair the truck was over $1700.

My 2005 Nissan Titan's rear wheel seals are leaking and have had to have the seal, bearing and spacer replaced twice. They begin leaking and run down on the rear brakes and cause them to slip. There must be a defect in design here. I know of many other Titan owners are having the same problem.
