Titan 8-cyl

  • 27,805 miles


The truck stalled while driving on the road once. It also stalled at start up when I got home and 2 more times the following day and at the dealership during the drop. The dealer replaced ipdm because it was only 1 month passed the warranty but under 36,000 warranty.

Ipdm component failed. Caused 2006 Nissan Titan to die 6 times in a 2 mile journey. Lost power steering, could not safely complete a turn, had to drive into a wooded roadside to avoid hitting an on-coming car. Once at a repair station, they could not get vehicle to start and I had to have the vehicle towed to dealership for repairs. Could have cost me more... if the engine were over cranked it could damage the catalytic converter according to the mechanic at the dealership. Scary experience to have with my kids in the car.

The contact owns a 2006 Nissan Titan. The contact stated that the wiring harness fractured on the driver side. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer and the dealer agreed to repair the failure according to NHTSA campaign id number: 06V459000 (electrical system). The contact was concerned because the recall covered the driver side harness but not the passenger side, which was slowly deteriorating. The dealer would not agree to replace the passenger side harness. The contact called the manufacturer who offered no assistance. The failure mileage was approximately 58,000 and the current mileage was approximately 59,000.

Truck stalls with no warning about once a day. The latest incident on the freeway. Lucky to be alive. Nissan replaced the ipdm at a cost of $600.

Cv valves causing engine to shut down also reported motor problems at 20,000 miles and replaced motor at 50,000 and electrical and air conditioner problems with a recall on the clutch fans and now leaking fluids and overheating occurs often and occasionally transmission has difficulty shifting into drive and while in drive unable to down shift manually the features for manual shifting are not working also gauges such as brake, check engine, air pressure lights are always on no way to turn these warning lights off cigarette lighters have never worked and when engine is shut down and no key is in the ignition the gauges flick rapidly on the speedometer, fuel, tac odem, a loud clicking is heard for minutes sounding from the engine at the time the gauges flick, also the ex-cab doors are broken the locks was told the truck was on of the trucks bought from Louisiana after hurriciane katrina and was sent form norman, okla to mcalester, okla to brad fenton motors I purchased this truck in 06 with less then 400 miles and I've had a number of problems and repairs and continue to have new problems and have yet to receive a letter from the manufacture about the electrical and fan and air conditioning recalls on the 06 Nissan Titans that was recalled in August 2008 this is very upsetting and a sellsman at a Nissan dealership informed me about 500 Titans purchased very cheap all brand new vehicles said to been sent to parts of Oklahoma and these trucks were said to be fixed for water damage and any repairs needend to theses trucks these trucks were bought after being sumerged in water and minor repairs were made and then these trucks were sold as brand new without any knowledge about water damages and sold very expensive with out any discount. I am wanting to know if my Titan was purchased during hurricane katrina and what dealership it was bought from originally before it was delivered to me at the time of purchase I want to know all recalls and car fax and any reports made.

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,590 miles
I drive daily on unlit roads, and this problem frequently occurs. My 2006 Nissan Titan's air conditioning/heating controls response to change is slow with headlights on (10-15 seconds to move from floor to defrost), causing a safety problem when needing to defrost at night. Nissan indicated this safety problem is the result of poor design for Titans since the engineers chose to use the variable voltage from the instrument panel light rheostat to power the HVAC controls. This 15 second delay causes a safety problem since when driving at night since the driver may be unaware that the windshield is fogged until oncoming traffic comes into view. When switching between modes (in this case, heat to defrost), by the time air begins to blow over the windshield, the truck has traveled 1100 feet without me being able to see the road (at 50 mph). This has made me run off the road, or nearly run off the road, numerous times (at least 10 that I remember). The only other option is to turn the instrument panels to full bright which blinds me during nighttime driving (just as unacceptable as a fogged windshield). Nissan currently has no repair for this malfunction.
