SOMETIMES WHEN STARTING FROM STOP, THE TRANSMISSION WILL NOT SHIFT OUT OF FIRST GEAR. I HAVE TO MANUALLY SHIFT INTO NEUTRAL AND THEN BACK INTO DRIVE WHILE THE TRUCK IS IN MOTION. THIS IS DANGEROUS WHEN PULLING OUT INTO TRAFFIC BECAUSE AFTER 20-25 MPH, THE TRUCK STOPS ACCELERATING UNTIL I MANUALLY PUT THE TRUCK INTO DRIVE. IT USUALLY TAKES ME A SECOND OR TWO TO NOTICE THAT I'M NO LONGER ACCELERATING AND TO FIX THE PROBLEM BY MANUALLY SHIFTING INTO DRIVE. MEANWHILE TRAFFIC IS RAPIDLY APPROACHING. THE ONCOMING TRAFFIC HAS TO SLOW DOWN. SOMETIMES THE APPROACHING TRAFFIC WILL HONK BECAUSE I'M AN UNEXPECTED OBSTACLE TO THEM. I'VE TALKED TO SEVERAL OTHER Nissan Titan OWNERS WHO HAVE HAD SIMILAR EXPERIENCES. IT'S DIFFICULT FOR ME TO JUDGE THE FREQUENCY, BUT I'D GUESS THIS OCCURS SEVERAL TIMES PER MONTH. THIS HAD OCCURRED SINCE I'VE OWNED THE VEHICLE. I'VE TAKEN THE VEHICLE TO THE LOCAL DEALER SEVERAL TIMES THEY HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO RESOLVE THE PROBLEM.

I parked the vehicle in the driveway and the car started rollin backwards. Second day parked it again at night and when i woke up the vehicle had rolled down at the end of the driveway. I brought it to the dealership and according to them nothing was wrong with the vehicle. I went on my own and did three parking tests and every time it rolled backwards while the vehicle was in park. I filmed the incident and brought it back to the dealership. At that time they kept the truck for further investigation. They had a specialist from corporate nissan come in and his findings were that the vehicle was fine and the tires needed to be changed. That doesn? T solve the issue of the vehicle rolling backwards while parked. I have had this vehicle for 2 1/2 years and no issues until now. Snow is not a new situation because i live in upstate ny. It just started on 1/1/21 and it hasn? T stopped rolling backwards. This is a safety concern that nissan is not addressing. I do have the videos but i do not have the option to upload.

THIS ISSUE WAS BROUGHT TO THE DEALERS ATTENTION IN MAY 2019.

The vehicle intermittently shifts erratically at speeds between 0 and 40 allowing excess rpms before shifting resulting in loss of power. This problem occurs when first accelerating and can occur at any time. The dealer has reprogrammed the transmission twice and still intermittent and erratic shifting still remains.

I was driving my truck a long distance yesterday and was on the interstate when this incident occurred, approximately 2 hours after killing the engine to get fuel. The check engine light came on, i was driving 70 mph at the time. Shortly after, a warning came up on my display stating "engine power degraded". I was on a mountain pass in the middle of nowhere and noticed the throttle was very slow, i couldnt speed up and that was very scary since i was on the interstate. I had to coast to the nearest dealer in aubun wa which was about 25 min away. As soon as i pulled off the interstate to slow down, the error cleared and i regained throttle and power. When i got there to the dealer service dept they said they had no diesel mechanics to look at my truck until 2 weeks and that i should leave it. They also told me they had no loaners, basically telling me to get a cab home. I live in tacoma, over an hour away from auburn. My truck had my dog and all my belongings inside since i just came home from a road trip, cabs were really not an option. I begged them to please just hook up diagnostics and tell me if i can make it home. They said it only showed "low voltage". They cranked my truck and i drove home. Currently it is stuck in the driveway and will not start. It will have to be towed to nissan in tacoma whenever they can actually find a diesel mechanic. Important to note this occurred after the car wreck i was in that was likely related to throttle not kicking in. Either way, i have no vehicle and nissan seems to think this is not their problem even though it is under warranty. It has become a safety nightmare and i am afraid to even drive this truck even if it was working.

Since i purchased this vehicle, i noticed the paddle shifter downshifting on its own while i am on the interstate. This has caused me to swerve off the road twice now as it is alarming. It goes from d to gear 1-6 at a high speed and the revs overload. I recently noticed it might be related to my phone? I keep my phone navigation attached to a vent clip behind the paddle shifter. Seems like when i reach for my phone, is when the gears suddenly change. This has been an issue since i purchased. Nissan told me nothing, besides "this doesn't happen often" or "move your phone away from the paddle shifter".

MY 2017 Nissan Titan XD STARTED MAING THIS STRANGE ODOR IN THE CABIN THAT OCCURS WHEN I DRIVE OVER 30 MINUTES ON THE HIGHWAY. IT IS A SWEET BURNING CHEMICAL SMELL. WHEN I PULL OVER, YOU CAN SMELL IT OUTSIDE THE VEHICLE. I HAVE 80,000 MILES ON IT AND IT STARTED AT AROUND 60000 MILES. I TOOK IT IN FOR SERVICE AND THEY REPLACED THE CABIN FILTER. I STILL SMELL IT THOUGH. OVER THE LAST YEAR OF DRIVING, I NOTICE I GET VERY BAD HEADACHES AND LATELY MY LUNGS FEEL WEAK. I HAVE BEEN COUGHING FOR NEARLY A MONTH AND DO NOT HAVE A FEVER. I ALSO FEEL DIZZY WHEN I DRIVE. I STOPPED DRIVING THE VEHICLE NOW FOR REASONS BEYOND JUST THIS. I CALLED NISSAN AND THEY CLAIM IT IS UNHEARD OF. I TRIED TO GET A MECHANIC IN A RUSH, BUT APPARENTLY THEY DO NOT HAVE ANYMORE DIESEL MECHANICS. TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, I CANT GET TO WORK NOW, NISSAN REFUSES TO OFFER ME A LOANER CAR IN THE MEANTIME WHILE I WAIT FOR REPAIR. READING FORUMS ONLINE, I SEE THIS IS AN ISSUE WITH THIS SAME YEAR AND MODEL .I AM NOW STUCK WITH A TRUCK THAT IS TOXIC TO DRIVE AND AM NOT BEING HELPED AT ALL BY THE MANUFACTURER. WHEN I DO CALL THEM AND TELL THEM MY VIN#, THEY HESITATE TO RESPOND TO MY CLAIMS AND HANG UP. THEY FINALLY TOOK A CLAIM AFTER I TOLD THEM I MIGHT CONTACT AN ATTORNEY. WHEN I ASK WHY THE VEHICLE WAS DISCONTINUED LAST YEAR, THEIR RESPONSE IS THAT IT WAS FOR FINANCIAL REASONS. I FEEL LIKE THIS TRUCK IS A COMPLETE DEATH TRAP AND MAKING ME SICK, THEY IGNORE THE FACT IT IS CAUSING HARM AND I NEED ASSISTANCE PLEASE.

I WAS INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT WHERE SOMEONE WAS HURT. I OWN A 2017 Nissan Titan XD WITH 75000 MILES. I WAS TAKING A LEFT TURN AT A YELLOW LIGHT, I SLOWED DOWN AND THEN TRIED TO SPEED UP. THE ACCELERATOR WILL NOT RESPOND FOR 3-4 SECONDS WHEN I DO THIS, IT HAS BEEN THIS WAY SINCE I BOUGHT IT. LOOKING ONLINE IT IS A COMMON ISSUE. HOWEVER THIS TIME I COULD NOT MOVE FAST ENOUGH AND AN AUDI SLAMMED INTO MY PASSENGER SIDE BECAUSE I COULDNT MOVE. THE KID IN THE AUDI WAS INJURED AND HIS CAR IS TOTALED. MINE WAS REPAIRED BY MY INSURANCE. MY AIRBAGS ALSO FAILED TO DEPLOY. I HAVE BACK PROBLEMS AND STILL HAVE A REALLY BAD HEADACHE AND HAVE NOT SEEN A DR, BUT WANT TO. I ALSO NOTICED A SMELL OR ODOR IN THE CABIN. LOOKING AT THE FORUMS, IT IS ANOTHER ISSUE WITH THIS TRUCK AND IS A MAJOR HEALTH CONCERN. I CALLED NISSAN AND WHEN I GIVE THEM MY VIN# THEY HANG UP ON ME. I FINALLY GOT THROUGH AFTER SAYING I MIGHT CONTACT AN ATTORNEY. THEY SAID THEY CREATED A CASE #. I WANT TO KNOW IF I HAVE A CASE FOR A LAWSUIT AND I REALLY WANT A TRUCK THAT WONT KILL ME OR CAUSE BODILY HARM. I PAID A TON OF MONEY FOR THIS VEHICLE AND IT IS A COMPLETE SAFETY AND HEALTH HAZARD.

There is a vox smell/fumes/vapors from the diesel power plant that keeps coming into the cab causing the occupants to inhale these potential poisonous/hazardous gases while driving the vehicle. This has happened numerous times. I've taken the vehicle back to the nissan dealership several times and they keep telling me that nothing is wrong with the vehicle except for me not driving it enough.

On may 29, 2020 after placing my truck in drive, it slowly accelerated. The rpm reading was around 1k even with me flooring the pedal. The traction control light and check engine light were illuminated. I then turned the vehicle off. The warning lights turned off and the vehicle accelerated normally for about 0. 1 miles. The warning lights came back on. I again turned the vehicle off and back on. Traction control remained on. I attempted to cross a busy main six lane parkway to make a left turn. Power was lost as i entered second lane trying to cross to opposite side of parkway. The vehicle coasted straight across parkway at around 1k rpm. I parked then allowed it to cool for about 5 minutes. It cranked again with traction control light still on. I was able to drive vehicle home approximately 10 miles. The vehicle was towed the following saturday. Vehicle was diagnosed by dealership as having a defective throttle body. Mileage in/mileage out 43,937/43,940 dealer notes - cause: p2101 ect function, performed voltage tests at ecm/harness all okay, states to replace etc repair - replaced throttle body and oring, performed closed throttle position and idle air relearn if i hadn't fallen for the finance manger's sales pitch to purchase a warranty, i would have been stuck with several thousands in costs on a vehicle with under 50k miles. I guess they know their vehicles are doomed to fail early and often. On same visit, i had to have a $1,500 sliding rear window replaced. Not a safety concern at this point, but thank you mister finance manager for the heads up on vehicle quality. Local nissan dealership was not able to authorize repairs, nissan corporate took a long time to approve costs. My truck was in shop for 2. 5 weeks.
