Asked by May 12, 2012 at 08:58 AM about the 2006 Nissan Titan XE Crew Cab 2WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The engine is shot although it has been well maintained and serviced throughoug its ownership.  Nissan believes it is not their problem that this truck engine lasted for 5 years two months of ownership and 56,000 ,miles of my ownership.  Replacement with a used engine will cost over $6,000 after many options explored.

I assume you talked to the service manager, I would escalate the issue witht he regional manager of Nissan and or maybe higher. Since your out of warranty Nissan isn't obligated to replace it for you, but you might get some help in the matter. Possible a reduced bill. But your almost forced to do it, since it would very hard to sell and recoupe your invesment on a 2006 truck with a defective engine. So start complaining and making some phone calls to resolve the issue. If you still can't, I'd find an local mechanic who can do the work for less, and or pull one from a salvage yard. FYI: A remanufactured engine these days is in the $3K range, add labor and your around $5k. Good Luck.

Another thought, depending on the issue with the motor, it might only mean a teardown of the engine to a point and reassemble. It could save you a lot of money. Get some estimates from some local garages. The dealers won't do that, they like to replace parts.
