Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • 84,000 miles


Ticking noise from engine area especially under moderate acceleration, dealer inspected and said my exhaust manifolds are cracked and would cost 3K to fix. Nissan customer relations refuses to help in any way even though my truck is only 4000 miles past mileage limit. This is a known issue that is a safety hazard (exhaust fumes can enter cab) and Nissan refuses to take any responsibility.

The contact owns a 2006 Nissan Titan. The contact was driving approximately 55 mph when the engine exhibited severe hesitation without warning. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for diagnosis, who stated that the exhaust manifold was fractured on both sides. The vehicle was in the process of being repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the defect. The approximate failure mileage was 150,000. The VIN was unavailable.

Titan 8-cyl

  • 86,000 miles
My 2006 Nissan Titan was taken in for recalls. Upon completion of the work, which was poorly performed, I was notified that both of my manifolds were cracked and would need to be replaced which would cost me over $2,000 but the dealer would cut me a deal for $1,700 if I wanted to do it right away and they also threatened me with the fact that I would not pass my smog so I had to do it now. I declined as I could not afford repairs like that. After a short search online I found that this was a regular issue with Titans but was not submitted for a recall. I have also sent a complaint to Nissan. I am quite disappointed with this issue as well as the lack of service I have received from the dealer. My family and I have always been strong supporters of Nissan and own many of their vehicles and have never had issues like this that have not been able to be resolved. I will continue to buy Nissan but hope that this will be reviewed and claimed as a recall. I cannot afford the repairs as my husband and I are both currently unemployed with 4 children and this is our only vehicle which we can no longer drive because we cannot have it smogged to renew registration. There is no doubt in my mind that the manifolds had been cracked for some time prior to the visit to the dealer. We had always taken our truck to the dealer because we had purchased a gold package for maintenance and I had complained about noise before and they could never find a problem. It figures that as soon as it is out of warranty they would magically find the issue.

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • 91,000 miles
Driving cross country in Nissan Titan. Truck floor got hot at one point. Later truck sputtered and shut itself down. I let it cool down and it drove fine for a while. Next day all of us in the car were a little sick and nauseated. Car drove fine the rest of the trip and it wasn't until after we arrived at our destination that the check engine warning light came up. Looked up the codes which were that the catalytic converters had loss efficiency. I took it to the deal for a complete diagnosis. Dealer confirmed all 4 cat converters were dead and it probably caused by a leak in the exhaust manifolds. Further research shows that Nissan Titans have a history of cracks in the exhaust manifold. This not only ruins the cat converters but exhaust fumes leak into the cabin causing a health risk. This is a known issue and I have contacted Nissan about this but have not heard back from them yet.
