Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • 66,000 miles


I have a 2005 Nissan Titan SE 4X4 off road edition. While going around a conner I heard a loud poping noise. I stopped the truck and looked under it. I noticed fluid coming from the right rear of the vehicle. I took it to Nissan and they inspected it. They told me it was the right rear wheel bearing. I asked them to fix it. They put in a new part but that did not fix the problem. They did not charge me for that work. I then talked to the shop foreman of Nissan and he told me that it was a dowl pin coming loose between the spider gears without pulling the cover off or anything. He said that the rear ends fail a dime a dozen with models 2004-2007. I asked how much it would be to fix it and I was told 3200 dollars. If Nissan has know about this problem for some time I think that Nissan needs to stand behind their product and actually issue a recall before someone gets hurt. I have the truck in storage right now due to the military, but I will eventually have to come out of pocket and get it repaired.

The front and rear wheel seals and spacers are faulty and causing fluid to leak out onto the brakes and brake pads. Which could cause fire, braking problems and if unfixed could cause the front/rear end to go out on the truck.

Titan 8-cyl

  • miles
Rear axle seals, locks, & gaskets need to be replaced and the dealer is charging approx. $800 to fix the problem. The oil is leaking onto the wheels from the axle problem. The switch for the driver controlled windows is out and the air pressure light comes on almost 80% of the time. The driver seat belt appears to jam and won't come undone or latch on most of the time.

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.

  • 42,186 miles
Multiple failures of right rear axle seal. Failures at mileages of 42186/86082/106492/131033. Same parts replaced 43252-7S200 rear axle seal, 43070-7S200 rear spacer, 40210-7S210 axle bearing. Axle fluid drains directly on to brake causing loss of function on right rear wheel. Also has caused possible premature shock absorber wear.

2005 Nissan Titan crew cab 4X4 with off-road package, within 10,000 miles there were loose bolts on the transfer case. At 38,500 miles the left front differential seal failed and leaked. At 39,800 miles the power steering hose went bad and leaked. At 51,000 miles the circular clip on the axle at front left differential deformed causing axle to begin to fall out of vehicle!!! thankfully all has been covered under our extended warranty, and dealerships have replaced parts, but when it runs out these will come from our pocket, and no one can guarantee the new parts are not just replacements or any better. This could have resulted in death or injury to us or someone else had that axle fell from vehicle, and could occur again.
