problem #2

Nov 082005

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,600 miles


Catastrophic rear differential failure. Was leaving work and everything seemed fine, came to stop at stopsign, hit throttle to go and bang, the rear blew. Afterwards the truck would not move, but the driveshaft was spinning and bad grinding and clunking sounds could be heard. I'm sure Nissan is going to replace the axel assembly although it is still in the shop. I have corresponded with others who have had this happen, and the rear is always replaced as a unit, and Nissan isn't really acnowledging that a problem exists, although some have gone through 3 rear ends. As far as I know, they all have the electronic locking differential option. Nobody was hurt, but I wouldn't want to see what would happen if it failed on the highway.

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,500 miles
No prior events leading to failure. The vehicle was driven normally according to manufacturers recommended procedure. The rear differential of my 2004 Nissan Titan broke 4 times, first time was at 6,000 miles, then every 3,000 miles there after. Nissan then replaced free of charge with a 2005 in which the rear differential has now broke 1 time. When the differential breaks the vehicle is immobilized and sometimes left in harms way (I.e. unable to get out of the middle of an intersection, towing downhill and the differential breaks making the vehicle very hard to stop) Nissan has replaced 3 rear differentials in the 2004 vehicle. They then gave a new 2005 Nissan Titan to me. Nissan has repaired 1 rear differential in this vehicle. I do not trust this vehicle and feel unsafe driving it as I am not sure when the next failure will happen. The incident date below is the most recent one.
