Nissan's full-sized pickup competes well with most other models. The Titan is quick, handles relatively nimbly and rides reasonably well. The cabin is also roomy. An optional towing package lets the Titan pull an impressive 9,500 pounds. Strong acceleration is a plus, but constant engine and exhaust noise can become tiresome. Stability control and curtain airbags are standard.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Plenty of power for towing. Handles better than other trucks I have driven."

Anonymous, ID (2005 Nissan Titan)

"Great towing vehicle. Very good acceleration when needed. Smooth off road handling."

Dennis E., AR (2005 Nissan Titan)

"Leaking exhaust manifold, expensive to replace, faulty design, Nissan not accepting responsibility and has not changed the design of a known defect. Bad faith. Drives and handles ok, like a pickup but smooth. Brakes were bad at purchase, but Nissan released a factory mod, front vent rotors and ceramic pads, better. I replaced lines with SS/Teflon lines with better pedal."

Edward B., MO (2005 Nissan Titan)

"Excellent Power in 2 & 4 wheel drive."

James R., AZ (2005 Nissan Titan)

"Handling clumsy, acceleration sluggish, gas mileage abysmal when towing."

David H., MD (2005 Nissan Titan)

"Acceleration is very good, stopping is a problem too long!"

Elijah L., MD (2005 Nissan Titan)

"11 years old. Trouble free except for the paint burn."

JACK R., CA (2005 Nissan Titan)

"smooth powerful"

WAYNE S., AZ (2005 Nissan Titan)

MOHAMED B., CA (2005 Nissan Titan)

"Acceleration is excellent"

Anonymous, FL (2005 Nissan Titan)

Elijah L., MD (2005 Nissan Titan)

Roger V., MD (2005 Nissan Titan)

"Seats are very comfortable and plenty of leg room."

Anonymous, PA (2005 Nissan Titan)

"Thus vehicle is very comfortable to ridentify in, and even on long trips. I just wish it was more reliable."

KEVIN H., OH (2005 Nissan Titan)


Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"Value very poor for money. Poorly designed & built. Drives ok & comfortable, but brakes, gas mileage, electronics & cabin fixtures did not function well at all"

David H., MD (2005 Nissan Titan)

"I work concrete construction. This has been the most durable truck I have ever driven. Tough, powerful, and comfortable."

Dennis E., AR (2005 Nissan Titan)

"Much better price and features - 4WD, tow package, bed liner, one touch power windows - than Ford, Dodge, Toyota."

Thomas G., GA (2005 Nissan Titan)


MOHAMED B., CA (2005 Nissan Titan)

"Great deal when purchased, no other make was even close on price."

Anonymous, MO (2005 Nissan Titan)

"CR's low ratings instill a low feeling of confidence in this vehicle."

Anonymous, CA (2005 Nissan Titan)

"I have had the truck for over 10 years and it still runs strong, pulls my trailer, doesn't use oil and everything works. No major issues except for peeling paint on the roof"

WAYNE S., AZ (2005 Nissan Titan)

"An engine with 4 camshafts compared to the big three singles is a technical delight. Mileage is marginal but performance makes up for it. I paid $22,000 out the door in 2005 and the base truck price is now over 30 before taxes."

JACK R., CA (2005 Nissan Titan)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
