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.

What Owners Say

"very comfortable but too big, hard for me to park in town. was my husbands truck. I would not likely get such a big vehicle again. although it is handy for hauling stuff in the country"

BRIDGET E., MO (2008 Nissan Titan)

"The handling is secure in corners and actually is better with acceleration. The acelleration is decent for a 4 cylinder with mild noise associated with them."

MATT E., CO (2008 Nissan Titan)

"I have the long bed. Turning radius is horrible!!! I rarely can make a U-turn at at intersections where it is allowed. always having to stop, back-up at just about overtime I need to make a U-turn. This truck is very difficult to park because of the too wide turning radius. Gas mileage is horrible! I average 12mpg. In town is 10 and pulling a trailer I only get 8mpg!!!"

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.
