Recall Alert: 2016 Nissan Titan XD

2016 Nissan Titan XD

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 12,000 model-year 2016 Nissan Titan XD pickup trucks manufactured between Aug. 7, 2015 and Sept. 1, 2016

The Problem: A temporary fuel tank breather cap may not have been removed during assembly and the fuel tank breather tube may not have been connected to the bed rail, possibly restricting proper ventilation and causing the fuel gauge to read incorrectly. If the gauge reads incorrectly, the vehicle can run out of fuel without the driver being aware, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect the fuel tank breather tube and replace the fuel tank, fuel sending unit and fuel tank breather tube, as necessary, for free.

What Owners Should Do: Nissan has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners can contact the automaker at 800-647-7261, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.

OOPS...

Hey no auto maker is immune to manufacturing bloopers...

I guess that employee is fired.

Considering how many of these trucks they've actually sold,
this isn't a recall, it's a shout out.

This truck in the picture with no chrome is awesome!!!!!!!

Glad to see their handling it we'll

The big 3 leave me cold. 65-75k for a hd pickup is obscene.
The Ram is as reliable as a pair of rubber crutches, that Ford
aluminum body-one good t-bone and have fun getting it fixed, and the GM, the less said the better. If the EPA would have left all 3 alone, we could have had Nirvana on an order sheet. But all that pollution crap has basically destroyed theses vehicles. And all those re flashes...aaarrrggg !!!

The XD is a cyclops running around the countryside looking
for something to stomp on. And not finding it. For that, I
blame its designers. It's a coulda shoulda woulda. But
Nissan has cobbled together a collection of underpinnings
that should make Toyota sweat. To the big 3, the XD is a
gnat. It cries out for a larger gas tank, a sun roof and
roof clearance lights. Can anyone tell me why no manufacturer offers a cb/ssb factory setuo? Cell phones are fine till you're in Arizona and the nearest cell tower is in New Mexico.

Then this would be a total recall of all of the trucks made

I'm all for clean environment but anymore they are kind of unrealistic, the auto makers can barely keep up. As soon as they find a good system then it's not long until it's not compliant anymore then it's back to square one. At this rate they'll go bankrupt on r&d. Lll

Agreed. Just look at diesel exhaust systems. It went from just a muffler to a DOC then DOC and DPF and now DOC,DPF and DEF. look at the Ram and Cummins lawsuit. Ram wants Cummins to pay for the $14000 exhaust system. The fact is that is a chunk of change for sure. And these exhaust systems seems to change every few years years. Talk about huge R&D cost.

600 miles on a half tank, aweso....... crap I just ran out of gas!

If it looks like a Ford, it might as well be recalled like a Ford.

Guess they copied Fords looks, an Ram reject engine, and GM's crappy quality !!!

I read that Nissan used Ford as their inspiration for building the new Titan line. HaHa, I know , really huh. Anyway. too bad they included the Ford recalls as well. With that design philosophy, one can assume the majority of these trucks has already spent much of its life at the dealership for warranty repairs.

pretty big issue consider this thing only has a 26 gallon tank, probably only get ~350 miles out of a full tank unloaded.

Wouldn't you notice if it's been awhile since you filled up last? + I'm guessing not many people reset the trip to figure out mpg each time they fill up? Always figured that was a good way to tell if something's wrong when your fuel economy starts going south. Lol

That's how I found out one of the cats were bad on my last truck, my mileage took a big drop so I hooked the scan tool to it and found the one cat wasn't burning off like it should. Until I got around to getting a new set out on the guts were completely out of it. Lol strange the other side was fine though. Lol

The ugly looks of a Ford
The not-quite-enough Ram reject engine
GM's reliable quality with minor things that take a 1 minute dealer visit to fix. As opposed to Ford's history of legendary quality that wouldn't have been recalled if it was Ford's call, including the disastrous 6.0 (6.blow), the garbage 6.4, that death wobbling front end (that they still haven't fixed), hundreds if not thousands of F150 fires all across the continent, 6-speed transmissions that drop into first gear at 70 miles per hour, ecoboost brakes that fail unexpectedly even when the truck is new, multiple of recalls that "fix" (bandaid) stalling ecoboosts, multiple "fixes" for ecoboosts with junk timing chains and cam phasers, 5.4's with junk oil pumps that get "fixed" by Ford lowering the spec for warm idle oil pressure, etc etc. Yep, can't knock that GM quality, even if it means stopping at the dealer to get some threadlock on a bolt or a 20-minute computer update.

"This is bad. Ford refuses to fix it even though it's under warranty and they know what causes it!"
