(1) i have experienced the same problem with the seatbelts in the back seat of my 2011 nissan titan. they tighten up on the occupants and i have to stop my truck in order to release them, but then they tighten up again. a switch for adults or children may fix the problem. (2) as well, the front floor mats that were installed at the dealer malfunctioned. the driver's floor mat had one hole for restraint and it should have had two holes. the floor mat caught up in the accelerator at a speed of approximately 50 kph and the engine revved wide open. i had to immediately put the truck in neutral and shut it off. that left me with no power steering and i was fortunate enough to get the truck to the side of the highway and remedy the problem. the dealership has since replaced the front floor mats and the probem is solved. owners of the nissan titans should make sure that the proper floor mats are installed in their trucks prior to driving them. (3) these trucks should not be delivered with a p tire on them. at the very least they should have an lt tire. i have had three flat tires on my truck in 5 months and it is not used on construction sites at all. *tr

2006 nissan titan only 35,000 miles and both exhaust manifolds cracked and were leaking exhaust gases that could not be fed into catalytic converters..dealer replaced under emissions warranty since exhaust manifold/catalytic converter are a solid 1 piece unit. they replaced with identical defective pieces that i am positive will crack like the original ones..please check online titan forums and you will see it is a very common problem with almost every titan..my local dealer says they "automatically check every titan" for this issue..i believe this should be a recall campaign because it is so common and not from driver error/abuse, and once any titan is out of the 8 year/80000 mile coverage it is a very expensive repair totaling over 2,000 dollars! most titan owners report a ticking sound from under the hood especially under cold start up-i didn't notice this on mine so i had no idea mine were cracked that's why i believe there should be a recall to inspect as many titans as possible for this emissions issue. *tr

how can a major car company build a vehicle that has so many rust problems. my 1998 pathfinder has so many rust problems. the company has had recall on the front strut housing, filler gas tube. why can't the company stand up and take care of all the rust problems. ever 1998 pathfinder has rust issues fenders rear quarter panels . if you paid $1000,00 for factory running boards they all have rusted off. why is it that the owners have to accept the problem with all these rust issues? this is my first and last nissan i will ever own. oh did i also tell you the transmission has been replaced, rear end makes noise,the distributor has been replaced filler tube, now the strut tower is rusting. is this even a safe vehicle to operate on the road? *kb

exhaust manifold leaking for the second time. bank 1 side was bad before the 80 emissions warranty was up, however dealership wouldn't do it, so we purchased another oem manifold/cat and had another shop replace it. now 2 years later that side has failed and is leaking again. the catalytic converter has failed on that side also. nissan has not offered a recall. exhaust manifold leaking allows exhaust fumes to not be vented correctly and the fumes can come into the cabin of the vehicle. i have spoken with the dealership and it should be noted i'm out of the 80 k emissions warranty. the oem equipment is not up to par. *tr

i own a 2005 nissan pathfinder and i have radiator and transmission failure! defective radiator causes engine coolant to leak into transmission which could fail at any time. driving at highway speed could and will cause dangerous situations. i must not be alone in this problem either, there are hundreds of complaints on this sight regarding this very issue! nissan needs to take responsibility for their design/manufacturing flaw. many consumers who are not aware of this are at danger and other people on the road as well. nissan needs to recall this immediately!!! why does someone have to be killed or injured seriously before nhtsa or nissan gets involved. i guess money is the root of all evil! and nissan is more concerned about their profits than someone's life! we as consumers need to do something about this! this has nothing to do with the wear and tear on our part, but nissan design department! *tr

hi, i'm writing to you because since day one in 2007 when i bought my 2007 nissan titan i have nothing but problems with it , first my front end of my truck kept on shaking every time the brakes where applied and i had told pine belt nissan the place i got the truck , that i been having these problems but yet these people still don't wanna bother with me at all , this truck is way to safe to even bother driving it anymore and i refused to pay all this money for a truck that i have got with less then 7,000 miles on it. i had bought all the extended warranties for this truck and it didn't do me any good because every time i have a problem or question about something they are always looking to charge me for something i feel should be covered by my warranty. next problem was my headlights kept blowing out and yet they still couldn't do anything for me besides make me pay for new light bulbs over 3 times , i also had to buy wire hardness for my headlights because they said the lights got to hot and melted the wires? i don't even understand how any of this is my fault. next problem is i have told them that my front wheels seem to be shaking when ever im making a turn, next i noticed that my tires are starting to ware on evenly and these tires are pretty much new ??? now i get two recalls in the mail, one for my fuel gauge and the other for the lower control links ?? what's next ed . this truck is really a nightmare, i bought this truck because i thought it was newer and safe to go anywhere, wrong i don't even wanna drive this thing around the block not alone being forced to use this truck to get to and from work because this is my only car and i am not made out of money that's the reason why i bought a newer truck just so i didn't have any problems like these. i guess i was wrong. thanks a lot for your time and any help you could give me , i just don't know where or who else to go to . i just want my truck in 100% working condition like i was promised. *tr
