2006 Nissan Titan Problems

Drive Train -- Verified

Overheating and/or lack of proper venting can cause the rear axle seals to leak. Excessive fluid loss can result in major damage to the rear differential assembly and/or axle bearings.

Engine -- Verified

A weak or failing fuel pump can cause power loss due to lower fuel pressure and lean mixture conditions. This rarely causes a Check Engine Light to illuminate and should be repaired to avoid catalytic converter damage.

Engine -- Verified

Water can cause corrosion in the connector between the engine and transmission wiring harness. The engine may crank but not start, stall, and/or the transmission may not shift correctly.

Electrical & Lights, February 19, 2007

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The wiring for the air bag system and front seat belts is routed through the rear doors. The wires may break from bending, due to the opening and closing of the rear doors. If wires break, and short circuit, the seat belt pretensioner may deploy and make the seat belt unusable. It's possible the wires could break and cause the front air bags not to deploy in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the wire harness cover with a different type, and reroute the harness. The recall began February 19, 2007.

Engine, March 22, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The instrument panel fuel gauge may show fuel in the fuel tank when there is none, typically about 1/4 when the tank is empty. This could cause the vehicle to run out of gas and stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the fuel sender unit inside the fuel tank to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on March 22, 2010.

2006 Nissan Titan Reviews

I have a 06 Titan bought brand new 54,000 miles to date. Here is my review. Love the look(I added a lot of chrome on a black truck) The brakes are holding up well I haul a 28ft camper she pulls and stops beautifully and handles the extra weight easily. That's the good. Now for the not so good. The heater takes awhile to heat up. Have had other trucks and they seem to heat up much quicker,needless to say the defrost takes longer than normal to work. The muffler is placed too far back it extends beyond the heat shield so when it failed(leaked)it melted the main wire harness .I lost all power to trailer including brakes let me tell you that was an exciting trip. also lost the back-up sonar.Having trouble with the power windows no "up" but it is 6yrs old. had to replace battery. Power assist tail gate failed. It came stock with passenger tires that does not work for me on a truck,Sorry Nissan. Will have too see how much the new harness cost, That will determine whether or not I would personally recommend this vehicle.

i bought my titan brand new love it havent had any problems with it its got 91000 miles on it now

I have an 06 titan LE. First let me start of with the good things ... plenty of power, plenty of room (crew cab), very appealing truck. I've hauled up to 6K lbs and it did great. Now to the negatives ... brakes and rotors had to be replaced around 45K, exhaust had to be replaced around 48K now my front axle (left side) is making a clicking noise when it's in 4wd. Not sure why or what is going bad, but I've never heard it before on any of my past trucks. I'm hoping that its nothing major, but if anyone out there has an idea of what it is let me know.

I have a 2006 Titan LE kingcab 58'000 miles that I purchased new in 2006. It's pretty loaded with leather, moonroof etc.. I like the ride and the motor performance but here's what I don't like: The truck needed full brake/rotor replacement service at 30k then again at 57k, the exhaust rusted off at 37,500k, the shift into 4wd and back to 2wd is never quick it always requires some time. I have had front end metal wrenching noises since new and Nissan says they find nothing. Now the noises are worse and will have to pay a private Mechanic to find the problem. The serpentine belt needed to be replaced at 57k as well. I have owned 3 toyotas and never changed an exhaust under 100k, never changed a serpentine belt under 100k, never required break replacement under 57k and always had emmediate change from 2wd to 4wd shift. I purchased the Titan with a 36k warranty and assumed I didn't need extended warranty because Japanese products don't fail early like Toyota. Well I was wrong!!! This truck is a looker with a great engine and a very good driver as long as the front end noises don't freak you out. I will not purchase another Titan due to all the issues.

My '06 has 26,000 mi. on it. The muffler is good but the flanges on the muffler/tail pipe rusted right off. Told I need to replace both sections and possibly the whole exhaust system because flanges on cat. converters will probably crumble when trying to disconnect also. Paid 26k, still making payments, and the warranty only covers muffler and converters. problem there is can't just replace flanges, so no warranty coverage. I'll dump this rust bucket 1st chance I get and buy American. PS: also needed to replace rusted rear shackle.
