2008 Nissan Titan Owner Comments

problem #4

Nov 182010

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • 14,300 miles


All 4 brake pads and rotors required changing on a 2008 Nissan Titan at 14,315 mi. This was determined by two qualified mechanics. Quote from the Nissan dealership, "all brake rotors are severely pitted..." there was no warning and this is unexpected at such low mileage. It was detected when tires were being rotated. Nissan claimed that this may be normal wear and would not help with financial compensation. Rotors are available for viewing (for investigation purposes) for a period of time.
