Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,675 miles


Purchased 2005 Nissan Titan truck on 2/1/2005. On 4/21/05 with 6,000 miles, truck shook/shimmied when applying brakes. Under warranty, Nissan dealer replaced front pads and resurfaced the front rotors. On 6/23/05 with 11,000 miles, truck again shook/shimmied when applying brakes. Still under warranty, Nissan dealer replaced front and rear pads and rotors again! on 1/14/08, needed to replace the crappy Goodyear Wrangler sr-a (P265/70R18) tires that came with the truck (also had 3 flat tires) even though I rotated them regularly (less than 40,000 miles). Today, the tire center indicated I needed new brakes. Called Nissan dealer and am again taking the truck into service to correct and get new rotors/pads. By the way, the warranty on my truck for this repair runs out on 2/1/08. Going forward, I will have to be responsible to pay. This stinks! how come there hasn't been a recall and corrective procedure implemented? $37,000 vehicle!

Bad vibration when braking so bad in fact had to leave the road to avoid traffic. No injuries to people, property, or vehicles. Happened 2 miles from home so went home first. A quick call to my attorneys office led me to the nhts.dot.gov site. I was shocked of all the complaints I read about on these trucks and still no recall? that's just irresponsible! printed out a bunch on complaints and headed into my local Nissan dealer. Went to the service manager introduced myself and asked him if they have any problems with the Nissan Titans brakes the service manager said I'm not aware of any. So I handed him the complaints from this site and asked if he could explain it to me. Within minutes they road tested my truck and said yes there is a problem. The service manager said they would fix my truck right away and Nissan was giving the brakes on these trucks warranties for 10 year or 100,000 miles. They called me a rental car, paid for it, and said they could finish the work today. Work order replaced front brake rotors. Pads and torque members replaced rear brake pads and resurfaced rear rotors parts: 2 40206-zc00A rotor disc brake 1 41060-ZC027 pad kit - disc 1 44060-ZC025 pad kit - disc br 4 41005-7S000 bolt took them a few hours to finish the repairs I was optimistic to see they got right after the problem hopefully that fixes it. I would still like to have that 10Y/100K brake warranty in writing. We will see if this is just a work around or a fix time will tell. I'll post more info as I receive it. B

The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Titan. The contact said dealership stated there was a defect within the brake pads/rotors. The brake pads overheated or got very hot and warped the rotors. When ever this happened it caused vibration when stopping. Vehicle was shaking tremendously, and it was hard to control vehicle on the road. Also, said every 3000-5000 miles they would have to replace the brake pads, and the rotors. This was an ongoing problem. Dealership insisted there was no solution to the problem. This caused wear to the two front tires.
