well my dealership skirted that one - in Colorado the vehicle needs to be in 4 times or more than ~10 days out of service.
They declared that my issues are not reparable and that 2 regens a tank and 12 mpg is not a problem. I think after driving hard for 30 miles at 65 mph should not need a regen after sitting in minor traffic sitting at a light.
Just saying - love the truck, hate the truck and I tell as many people as i can to stay away from Nissan, The CEO is a crook and their tech is the worst. I have a 2010 Honda with a better nav and bluetooth system and I can see the gauges in my Honda - the gear lever blocks out half of my radio/nav buttons when driving.
Just delete the truck and problem solved. Why continue with emissions problems when you can spend $1500 and problem fixed?

Just turned 12k miles on mine had since June 2018. This POS regens every week still like clockwork. Only drive ~5 miles to work each day city. Dealer said everything is fine last oil change / fuel filter change @ 10K miles.
I like some others here did not read into the "facts" about owning a diesel. Jokes on me I guess. It's frustrating.

Tried to trade it in a few months ago, and would of taken a 10k bath.

I do tow a boat with it (not often enough I guess)

Thankfully, I don't have the smell in the cab.

Wanna go the delete route, but terrified an issue arises after I did it.

Just rollin with the punches.

Depends if the soot load is low before you start driving (scan gauge 2 can monitor that) then it shouldn't regen. if you started driving with high soot load, then it could activate active regen regardless if you are driving highway or towing.

I deleted mine at 1,200 miles roughly on the odometer. Now at 6700 mostly stop and go driving, no issues to report. Traded out the original oil and filter at 5k for Amsoil products. If anything blows up I’ll let y’all know.

I’m barely getting ready to hit 5k on the clock and so far I haven’t seen a regen. With that being said, I don’t use the truck for daily driving much less city driving. Most of those miles are all highway miles.

I’m not attacking you or saying your wrong, but that might not be a good thing. Easy indicator of regen is higher idle speed(750) when coming to a stop and sitting at a light in drive, and poor fuel mileage. Some people smell a strong smell as well.
This is from the technical manual for our truck.

“The engine ECM also contains a time-based feature for active regenerations, which is used to verify correct
operation when the vehicle duty cycle is typically high enough that active regeneration events are not neces-
sary.
• If the engine has not completed an active regeneration within the last 24 hours of operation, the engine ECM
will call for a time-based active regeneration event.
• The 24-hour timer resets each time the ECM detects that an active regeneration event has completed.”

too funny. excuse after excuse for these trucks. Mine was bought back a month ago, afterover 2 years dealing with legal teams. Owned several newer Ford F250's, never had all this crying about "load the truck up" and all this other wild snit about a diesel engine. And while these Nissan lovers can create excuse after excuse for it, what you can not do, is duplicate the settlement I got when you trade your truck in. So hate some more.

Then why are you here? Just asking. You hate the trucks, hate on those of us who like them (I think they are no better or worse than any new truck, and I have owned many different manufacturers trucks bought new), and come in here to troll. Is your life so devoid of things to do that you find this gives you meaning? I owned a Chevy Colorado Diesel I bought new. I didnt care for it for my own reasons. Know what I dont spend time doing now? Going into their forums and trash talking it. Know why? Because that would be fucking retarded. Hmm, I think I just answered the question I posed at the beginning....

Hahahahahahaha! Well put! Same reasons I keep making excuses for my wife that keeps cheating on me, a getting new one is more expensive and getting rid of the old one will cause some reverse equity. Also no sense going into a new one cause of all the issues that bitch will have may be worst than the current.

Man their are trolls all over the Internet. Yep, if your experience with the XD was bad (and I’m not saying it wasn’t) I don’t blame you for wanting a buy back or at the very least, trade the truck and move on. It sounds like a few have had that type of experience. I hate that for any and all of you but I’ll never understand what makes someone want to come here and trash current owners who either are working through their issues or not having any issues at all?

Life kind of sucks sometimes. No need to drag everyone else down with you.

So...I have an update - Driving at 65 on the freeway the engine made a loud noise and lost power - was able to pull off. Towed it to the dealership who 'read the codes' and said it needs a new Crankshaft.
At 34,000 miles - wouldn't that need a whole engine rebuild (damage to the block, bearings or rods/pistons?) or new motor? I don't even think they looked at the engine and have no idea if there is other damage? I was also led to believe that it would be fixed in a day (wouldn't it require you to pull the motor?)
I have also a number other warranty issues (on cold mornings there is no power, cruise control will only turn on when it is completely warmed up and have regens that give me headaches because of the fumes).
Anyone had experience with a broken crank? Any advice on my options?
The new part is supposed to be arriving tomorrow.

I get it, but they shouldn't sell something that is not ready for the market - clearly they recognize that because they have pulled the Cummins motor after less than 3 years on the market. Rules require that auto manufacturers have to provide parts and support for 10 years - that may be too expensive for Nissan so it will be cheaper to pull them off the streets.
Just saying - i have never had a vehicle with this many issues.

So should ford have never put the 6.0 or 6.4 on the streets, should chevy have never put the early duramax on the road? They had as many if not more issues than this truck. I know some of yall are frustrated because you got a bad truck but many of us have great luck with them. The issues arent the readkn it got pulled, it got pulled because so many people think they need 1k ft lbs of torque to tow a 10k lb camper lol. They just didnt sell.

2008 Ford Edge: airbags issues, heater core replaced under 50K
2013 Chrysler 200: 60,XXX transmission thew chunks stopped shifting.
2014 ram 1500: 20+ recalls, cruise control stayed stuck on, everything dash wise quit working, 55k exhaust manifold warped and broke bolts, to many issues to list, 86,000 cam and lifter failure due to MDS setup.
2015 Chevy Cruze: 30,000 EVAP canister purge valve failed, rear main seal and oil pan started leaking, turbo failure at 60,xxx ect
2018 Nissan Titan Xd: 10000 miles no issues this far.
2020 Nissan Rogue SL: 1200 miles failed PCV Staying wide open leaking.

All these vehicles I bought new, followed maintenance schedule to a T, only used high quality fluids and filters. Some of these repairs covered under warranty. Everything else I repaired on my own. Luckily with my mechanic back ground and shop setup that was possible.

moral of the story,
Everything is junk, quality control is shit, my dad is 72 yes old, he can tell you stories of all his same endeavors with cars over the years. Someone can have the same vehicle and maintain it the same way and get 300,000 easy, some not so much. It is totally the luck of the draw with most vehicles. It is what it is. Don’t like it? Move to Bulgaria where everything is diesel, no emissions, no heated seats or Bluetooth phone, no safety regs or anything. Just a tin can with a good powertrain.

This doesn’t make sense to me. Replacing a crankshaft will take more than 1 day. I’m my case the crankshaft actually broke and the long block was replaced. If I were you I’d ask more questions.

Thanks - that's the advice I was looking for. I suspect the dealership doesn't even have a diesel tech (they skirted the issue) and i'm going to demand an extended warranty in the least!

If it in fact has a broken crankshaft you should have it all covered under the 5 year/100,000 mile warranty. I doubt they will give you an extended warranty but they might sell you one? Keep us posted and I hope everything works out ok for you.
