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.

2006 Nissan Titan Owner Comments

Catalytic converter failure many Nissan Titans are experiencing premature catalytic converter failure. Some failures are causing the engine to seize, as particles of the core of sucked up into the engine. This has caused failures while driving, and as of yet has not caused any crashes or fires. I believe it is an issue that needs to be addressed. There are are large number of failures before 80,000 miles, and a large number of failures right after 80,000 miles which leaves it up to the consumer to pay $1700+ to have the repair done. Nissan is saying it's not an issue, but internet reports of the failures would say otherwise. Please look into this issue. Thanks

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • 86,000 miles
Poorly constructed exhaust manifold(s) equipped in 2004-2007 Nissan Titans crack under normal driving conditions. Nearly all Titans on the road (up until about 2008) are effected by this manufacturing defect. 2008+ Titans are said to be equipped with stronger manifolds, but those crack as well. This crack, if not taken care of, may throw error codes which will cause the engine to lean out and possibly destroy the catalytic converter. Aside from possible engine malfunction due to this crack, exhaust gases to not properly exhaust out the rear of the vehicle and subsequently exit the manifolds within the engine bay and enter into the passenger cabin. As the exhaust manifolds are attached to the catalytic converters, they can be replaced by the 8Y/80K mile federal emissions warranty. However, many dealers will not look at the manifolds to diagnose the issue until after this point. Replacing the manifolds using oem products is quite costly.

2006 Nissan Titan SE king cab 4X4 offroad bigtow. The exhaust manifolds on my Titan cracked and 3 separate Nissan dealerships in southern California wouldn't acknowledge the issue and repair under warranty. The service managers would claim that they did not or could not find the problem. These parts are covered under the 8 yr/80,000 mile long-term emission system defects warranty and my truck currently has 69, xxx miles. The 3 visits to the different dealerships span from when I got the truck in 2009 to 2011. On my own dime, I had a shop replace the exhaust manifolds and they confirmed both were cracked. I have them sitting in my garage for further proof. I'm considering making a claim w/ Nissan hq but I know it'll be in vain. There are several reports of cracked manifolds online. Maybe this warrants a recall or Nissan can press their dealers to handle this in a more professional manner.

The exhaust manifolds on my 2006 Nissan Titan have cracked, causing toxic exhaust fumes to leak into the passenger compartment. The truck has less than 100,000 miles. I believe this issue to be caused by faulty parts supplied by Nissan.

Cracked exhaust manifolds (both sides) on 2006 Nissan Titan. Normal driving. Apparently, this could cause loss of power and fumes escaping from exhaust could enter the cabin and cause headache, nausea and other effects. Dealer offers 80K warranty. Truck as 75K. Dealer will replace under warranty.
