Pros: What do you like about your 2006 Nissan Titan?
Quick power when necessary, smooth controlled ride while cornering, good visability except rear, very comfortable seats and ride, convient location of controls, great audio for a factory stock system, two large people can sit in the front seats and not even touch elbows, excellent side towing mirrows, large glove compartment and very large center console storage, many variable size drink holders. auto darkening mirrow for rear headlight glare, this model 06 has brakes that are not only superior to 05 Titans, but perform in a superior manner then the Ford F150 And F250, by having quicker predictable controlled stopping power, very large and deep 6 1/2 closed bed to over 4x8 feet with the back down, large items can fit in the inside of the cab without the usual door pillers and wth the front passenger seat folded down and the rear seats folded up. I researched and tested this truck for 2 1/2 years before buying this fully loaded with all options Titan LE King Cab. I have over 800 miles on it now and testing the gas mileage by traveling in extremely heavy stop and go city driving and average high desert at 26400 feet in California down to 2000 feet and turn around and return back up to the starting place, I average in city only 11.7 mpg and freeway travel with no headwind, 20 mpg at a speed of 65 70 mph average which is higher then the rated sticker of 18mpg. the secret to the higher then rated highway millage is to get up to speed with moderate throttle and then use only throttle enough to keep it at a constant legal speed. I have found that cruse control will over react and speed up quicker, which will use more gas.
Cons: How would you improve your 2006 Nissan Titan?
The only two items that need improvement are the winshield washer which is in a position where your hand tends to hit it and turn the wipers on when not wanted because the truck is large with the back end up in the air, rear visability is almost nonexistant, although the rear sonic sensors work well, you can't visually see if a small child or animal is behind you. I recommand a rear camera that is engaged when you go into reverse and is showen on the GPS screen, as an option that could lead to saved lives or property damage, as offered on some other Nissan models. I'm still researching a way to add it after marker with poor results so far as there is no room to add an additional screen as the cab has no usable spot to put one without looking trashy or interfering with safety. There needs to be an adapter to interface with the GPS monitor and rear camera. Nissan was no help in supplying information on such.
2006 Nissan Titan Review:
I find the 2006 Titan LE to be a superior 1\2 ton truck with full size features and outstanding ride qualities, with a quiet interior and no noticable rattles with more then enough exceleration and stopping power. I highly recommend this truck to any one who wants or needs an all around vehicle that transports you in comfort to almost anywhere or load up the bed witn cement, lumber et. or haul a boat or trailer in comfort. Go see the crash rating of the Titan 2006 as it is 5 Stars, A best in class. I rate Titan a must have.
