I had just about decided to buy a 2005 Titan until I heard (from a Chevy dealer whom I thought was blowing smoke) about the rotor/pad problems. Does anyone know if this got addressed in the 2005? I checked the NTSA and there were no service bulletins/recalls, but LOTS of complaints (all for the 2004).Too many for me to be comfortable.

The 05's use the same rotors and calipers as the 04's so now the problem has not been resolved. More and more info is coming out about a recall on the brake issue which is supposed to go into affect in April. I would not let this scare you for the following reasons, not every Titan has this problem - those that drive in allot of stop in go traffic and do allot of hard braking will more than likely have the problem. The dealer will replace/turn your rotors should you ever have this problem. Even though the Titan has issues with the rotors I'm suprised at how quick it stops for a truck of it's size and weight.

Since I do a lot of stop and go, and I will be towing horses with this truck, I cannot afford to have problems with the brakes. I don't have the time to take it in for service every 5-10,000 mi, nor do I want the brakes to start acting up with a loaded trailer coming down a mountain road. Too bad they didn't address this last year.
