2008 Nissan Titan Owner Comments

problem #3

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • 66,000 miles


We just took our 2008 Nissan Titan into have oil changed we had just gotten the vehicle a couple days before and found out that the exhaust manifolds were cracked with only 66K miles on it! this truck is in excellent condition with no tow package and not used for hauling or heavy work. We had no idea this was a problem with the vehicles or we wouldn't have bought one. There are many people online complaining about this now that I have looked up the exact problem which I didn't know existed. Please make this a recall. I have heard that "their fix" doesn't work and will crack again.

Lower transmission hose to radiator cracks and releases transmission fluid due to vibrations and being inadequately supported, causing sudden loss of transmission. 1st time it happened while driving on highway with 45000-50000 miles and required transmission replacement, second time at 90000 miles.

While driving home the truck revved and lost power, I took my foot off the accelerator the truck regained power and I was able to slowly drive the truck home. It happened twice more on that same drive home. I took it down to the dealership where they told me it was the transmission. I explained it only had 22,000 miles on it and it has never been abused in anyway. There is no reason for the transmission to break. We use it mainly for the dogs to travel in and when guess are in town we have an extra vehicle run to the store and back. Honestly the truck does very little but show off the dogs when they get to go to the market and back. We call and talked with the Nissan rep. Whose name is [xxx] who is our district manager, he simply told us that the warranty was no longer in effect and we were responsible for all expenses. I mentioned the unfairness of the situation, his response was I should have taken it into the dealer for all of its maintenance and service recommendations. When I mentioned that we had all the maintenance and services recommended done through our small business local mechanic who by the way has more certificates and experience than his Nissan team he argued the fact. I shared how we will continue to support our local small business certified mechanic who pays for all of his expenses on his own to run his business unlike the Nissan team who work under the umbrella of the Nissan dealer, [xxx] again argued the fact. We have three Nissan vehicles all of which we are now selling and will never purchase another Nissan ever. Its a shame that Nissan does not stand by there products. I also read where they extended the warranty for the transmission of the frontier because of a radiator leak that mix with the transmission, instead of a recall on the problem. Please people lets band together and boycott all Nissan products. 22,000 miles seriously. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6)
