thinking of trading truck give honest opinion please

So, the time has arisen where a full sized truck is almost a necessity to my family's needs. We are in pretty good with our local Nissan dealer where we purchased my wife's 370z and then our pathfinder. I've been looking at the Titan. Today they offered us a 2011 crew cab Sv 4x4 for roughly 28,000 otd, which really fits my needs and more importantly our budget as much as I like the tundras they are really expensive. Give input please.

The choice seems pretty clear - if your family's needs demands you get a full-size, then I would go with a full-size.

Something to keep in mind, though...you can get a very nice, Certified Used Tundra for $28,000...

never be brand loyal, if it works for your fam and is reliable then do it. My advice would be check out titan forums and look for nagging issues that may or may not plague them

Do your research on the Titan, they used to have issues with the rear ends since they're so small. That being said, my neighbor has one that he tows a travel trailer with and has not had anything go wrong with it. I'd give serious consideration to the Silverado and the F-150 though. I'd be more apt to buy one of those over the Nissan.

The Tundra is over-engineered in just about every area. The Titan? Eh...not so much.

When I was selling Toyotas, we had a guy come down with a true Tundra cutaway. Essentially, take a Tundra off the lot and get yourself a chainsaw and slice it right down the middle length-wise.

He had an F-150, Silverado and a Titan with him also. The Tundra won in just about every functional area.

With all of that being said, for what your (OP) budget seems to be, I agree with Pugga. An F-150 or Silverado would more than likely be my choice over the Titan if buying brand new was a requirement.

i had a 2006 titan new, i went through 2 tranny's, 1 transcooler, radiator, and the second time my rear end went out i traded it in for my tacoma. keep in mind i was heavily modded. headers, cai, intake, tru trac, i had a burnout mod and was hard on that truck. I haven't been on titantalk or clubtitan in awhile but those 2 seem to be top forums, titantalk was frequented more. they upgraded the brakes i think, the fix for the rear end was putting a finned diff cover on the rear, as far as tranny's go not sure but the titan has alot of problems with transmissions also. good luck in your decision....

Imo I think the tundra is a better truck however the real question is what $$$ figure makes it worth it. The truck is more exspensive because people are willing to pay it for a reason. that reason varies from quality, performance, or status symbol).
Thats why the tacoma (known as on of the most expensive in its class is also know as the best in class)
But what i am saying is you can only play the game with the cards you have. Don't get me wrong i like the titan and I think that you first post says it all. It fits your need and is in you buget.
Also 28,000 new sounds pretty good but also look at american trucks too they have made huge leaps!
