But at least the reviewer was hot (I'm a huge Dagmar fan).

Before I even watch the video I will say I've beat the hell out of my Titan since Jan 08' when I bought it new. After 40k and plenty of off road miles I'm glad to report my tailgate is intact.

Titan's issues have been with manufacturing consistency rather than engineering.

The Canton plant pushed out mostly solid trucks, with a significant number of rattling, differential-eating, brake-chewing turds here and there mucking up Nissan's quality scores. Improvements were made over the years.

She sounds odd to me when she's narrating, like she's trying too hard to articulate everything. Some of the exaggerations are strange, especially in the beginning. It reminds me of when my kindergarten teacher used to read books to the class.

Learned a few things though asI find it really easy to forget about the Titan when talking trucks. Nothing against it, I guess I just don't ever hear anything about it, I don't know anyone who has one or or knows someone else who has one, and it's often left out in comparison reviews.

Its probably a habit from being a news anchor. I'm not a fan of that kind of vocal inflection either.

Pardon my Nissan ignorance, but do the Titan and M56 share an engine?

Talk about vocal inflection, I think Mary Hart went in for a head to toe body inflection as well as the vocal, she looks like a chicken eating seed off the ground.

I've seen door handles come off in your hand, but never a whole tailgate. That's funny stuff. At least the Titan is one of the few Nissan products that doesn't have a freakin CVT.

Good one. I was gonna say that she can drop her tailgate on me anytime, but yours is better.

Texans love these trucks for some reason. Apparently a quarter of new trucks sold for a while were Titans.

So will you beat it more while you're watching the video?

Odd. Titans and Tundras don't sell well in Minnesota. Domestic trucks are huge in such a blue state with so many farmers.

I'll give her something big she can also love . . .



I had a guy in a Titan try and run me one morning on the way to work (don't ask me why). It wasn't pretty and of course after he quickly turned off.

I thought I'd never see SKEE-LO pop up in the Cadillac Forum.

Indeed. He was more of a Chevy fan, Impala to be specific. And so is Gary. Maybe Gary and Skee-Lo have a lot in common!
