Even though they essentially share the same name, don't confuse the Nissan Titan with its monstrous almost heavy-duty version, the Titan XD. The lighter, kinder gas-powered version is a much nicer truck in every way. The new Nissan also competes well with other light-duty 1500 competitors. Chief attributes include the Titan's energetic V8, reasonable ride and handling, low-effort tailgate and par-for-the-course fuel economy.

These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how used vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system.

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.
