2006 Nissan Titan Owner Comments

Air bag warning light started blinking. Diagnostic gave code of crash zone sensor communication error. Researched issue on line and see that there is a recall for snow belt states which Maine is included but not the Titan. Contacted Nissan regarding issue and was told that they would not cover because we are outside of warrantee? find it odd that some vehicles are being covered but not this one. Previously to the airbag light issue my husband was driving on the interstate doing approximately 70 mph when the vehicle abruptly lost all power. Thankfully no vehicle behind him. He pulled over into breakdown lane tried to restart vehicle wouldn't start initially but after 10 minutes did start. No codes to be read not sure if this is related to the airbag issue but obviously not safe to have your vehicle abruptly shut down at 70 mph.

The contact owns a 2006 Nissan Titan. While driving various speeds, the vehicle suddenly began to vibrate and shutter. After stopping the vehicle, the failure would suddenly cease. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who stated that the failure was caused by radiator fluid leaking into the transmission. The failure was not repaired. Also, while operating the vehicle, the air bag sensor light would blink on and off. The manufacturer was notified of the failures. The failure mileage was 150,000.

My Nissan Titan is supposedly not included in the takata recall, however, the airbag light has come on and I am very concerned that if I was involved in a crash, it may not deploy or may deploy without any reason. I have talked to the Nissan dealer in hattiesburg, ms, but they said it is not included. If something like this would happen, I am sure Nissan would pay dearly. My Nissan also had the brake problem that you did the recall on several years back, but again, my particular vehicle was not included in the recall, but the Nissan here did fix it and did not charge me. This needs to be resolved before I get killed or injured badly.

Air bag warning light flashing and failed to stop. Took the vehicle to my dealer for repair also gave them my service contract information through allstate cont #; [xxx] at [xxx]. I was told as well as the dealer that the wiring harness that caused the issue was allowed to be patched and not replaced and furthermore was not a cover item even though electrical is covered in the plan. I explained to them it is against the law to patch and repair the wires as well as to time consuming to locate the 1 wire. The man informed me they do this practice all the time. So how many unsafe vehicles has allstate with the assistance of pablo creek placed in service? information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

My 2006 Nissan Titan king cab has the air bag light flashing, I was advise by a mechanic that there's a recall on same vehicles just like mine, the recent dealer's diagnosis confirms that the wiring for the harness are broken and it's require to be replaced, this issue applies to the same description on the recall campaign # 06V459000 Nissan claims my VIN it's not on the recall, but the problem is the same, it's a safety issue and should be Nissan, S responsibility to repair. This is unsafe for me, my family and other drivers out there. I hope the national highway safety administration open a recall under my VIN range. This can be a serious safety hazard.

While driving down a dirt road my side curtain airbags deployed causing me to swerve into a ditch. I contacted Nissan of North America and they suggested I take the truck to the local Nissan dealership and when I took it there and told them what happened and they told me they were probably not going to cover it since I purchased the truck used and they asked what other actions I was going to pursue and I said I was going to contact a lawyer and they were very adamant about me not contacting a lawyer which I considered to be a red flag. After doing research I noticed I am not the only Nissan Titan owner this has happened to and do not feel I should have to file a claim with my insurance company and pay my deductible or shop fees because I do not consider this to be my fault and feel that this is a very big safety issue especially since my wife drives this truck and we haul our niece and nephew in the truck when we have them and had this happened on our freeway at 75mph things could have been a lot worse.

Shortly after a rainstorm this vehicle (Nissan Titan 2006) was being driven late at night on an unpaved country road in the vicinity of webster parish, la. As the road was wet and the visibility was very limited it was being driven no faster than about 20 miles per hour when they ran into a rut in the road with the left front tire and that caused the airbags to deploy. When the vehicle ran into the rut in the road it tilted very slightly and then righted itself. There was no exterior damage to the vehicle and there were no injuries to the people riding in the vehicle. The vehicle was then driven to the local Nissan dealership and they contacted Nissan who said that the airbags had deployed properly and they would not pay any part of replacing them or the seat belts. The Nissan representative also said that the vehicles¿ computer sent out an ¿error code¿ that the vehicle had rolled over. Also, when we discussed this issue with another Nissan trained and certified technician, we were told that 7 out of 10 Titans have issues with their computers and that the sensor under the vehicle is prone to come loose. It doesn't seem logical that a minor incident like this could cause the airbags to deploy and have to be replaced along with the seat belts unless the system in this vehicle was defective. It cost more than $5,000 to replace the airbags and the seat belts and Nissan would not pay any of this amount.
