I have enjoyed the Titan XD Forum for over a year and finally became a member. Like many others I anxiously awaited the reveal at the Detroit auto show in Jan 2015. Before any specs were released this truck seemed like it would fit my needs. So I waited for them to hit the lot. And I waited and I waited. I was patient, I liked the idea of a diesel 1/2 ton and my 02 Tacoma has been the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned. The idea of a diesel pickup hitting the market by Nissan seemed like it would be worth the wait. Besides seemed natural to trade in the 2010 Armada on a Titan. Unfortunately the Armada began to prove "It was a Nissan." Had to replace the block heater cord $70 just for just the cord and only available from dealer. Power steering cooling line failed $350 for hose + $300 labour. Rear hatch Strut $100 only available from dealer. Final straw both exhaust manifolds cracked, a recurring problem dating back to original release of the 5.6L. Had to rule out the XD for now. Nissan took way to long to launch this truck. No availability of aftermarket parts and dealer parts are overpriced. Decided to keep the Tacoma as my Daily driver and picked up a used Ram 3500. Can haul as much as I want, can tow whatever I want, can buy parts where ever I want and gets 15L/100km mileage. It doesn't ride like a 1/2 ton but it doesn't have the specs of a 1/2 ton either. When I'm looking to replace the Ram I'll give the XD another look. Nissan will hopefully have the pricing and the disappointing specs of the XD sorted out and if sales of the XD are decent enough after market parts makers will supply reasonable priced parts. Sorry if I bored you with my long post.
