Although the design dates back to 2004, the Titan is a good choice among full-sized pickups, thanks to a powerful and smooth V8, relatively agile handling and a comfortably spacious cabin. A powered back window and damped tailgate are other nice touches. Payload capacity is commendable. In other respects, this version of the Titan is a bit behind the curve relative to newer competitors.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
