How many folks keep their GM/Ford that long, on average?

If more people would start doing that the world would be a better place.

Numbers driven by fleet sales. Nissan still has been underwhelming since right after the introduction of the first generation. Had a real aggressive exhaust note.

Hey, Nissan......start making a small pickemup truck on the scale of the S10 or the real Ranger and I'll love you forever. I bet you won't do it! You won't do it....you're to pussy to do it.


If a manufacturer would come out with a true small truck design (not unibody), I think they could get a good bit of market share. With gas prices as they are, I think people would be open to a small truck. Also, I think there is a stigma with the unibody design. It's not manly to buy a unibody truck.

I thought they nailed it with the cummins, guess not.

The Cummins in the Nissan was not a good product. Not the same as in the Ram heavy duty.

Same here.

I anticipate buying a new truck in the next few years and the Titan was something I was going to consider. Well...

It’s a solid truck with a good V8 engine.


The 56DE was the ONLY good thing about the Titans. For years, the early models suffered from weak transmissions (same transmission found in Jeeps of those years but behind V6's) and even weaker rear axles. They never really got that much better in the half-tons.

No because every tundra is prob still on the road



Just saw one flatbedded away after a front suspension failure the other day.

And while it may seem Tundra is the best selling truck if one was to only read the OT, they are not common at all up here. I go days without seeing one. Meanwhile thousands of Silverados/F150s/Rams/Sierras go by daily.

eta-There is one older Titan in town that I see occasionally.

100% will. They are now the QX80 lite, a staple of the soccer mom community


They make those in Canton also, correct?

Damn, they invested quite a bit into this model and made a huge deal about wanting to take on Ford/GM/Ram.

I wonder what their market research shows as the reason. It’s not a bad offering, IMO. It’s certainly better than some of the shite sedans Nissan makes.

They already have a frontier. Why don’t you need something smaller?

Horrible, horrible gas mileage in their V8, even relative to their pickup brothers. But they are ok trucks. I always liked the Cummins in them.

Besides, you need a convertible for your hair.
