After January

I talked to the dealer today who stated that any Titan built after January 2005 has the upgraded brakes. That is what he said for all it is worth. Mine was produced in March, 2005. We'll see.

Well, the problem with the brake kit is...not enough. A majority of Nissan dealerships are forced to turn/cut rotors first, then install kit as they come in. And they take about 3~4 weeks to come in. In alot of cases, trucks have been coming in several times before they kits come in because the judder comes back before the brake kit can come in. Remember that the techs are authorized to cut the rotors as long as they are within cutting specs. i.e. thick enough and not warped excessively. There have been cases where the customer just had to wait for the kit to come in and deal with the judder since the rotors were too thin or too warped.
Don't forget, having aftermarket wheels that are heavier than stock will only amplify the problem.
The kit comes with new front rotors, front and rear brake pads, clips, and shims, and new front caliper bolts. The rear calipers will have to be recut, unless it can't. But since there are so many Titans and Armadas sold, Nissan has been having a doozy of a time even trying to get these kits out.

It is official

Just received a letter from Nissan stating that the brake warranty is now 3/36k miles

"..... Nissan will inspect the braking system and replace or repair parts, as necessary, to eliminate the condition....."

Nissan is doing this to " ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction" etc.

So, it is not a 'recall' but a warranty extension.

Rumours has it that NISSAN did not get the right rotor from its supplier. So its ordering the improved design from BOSCH. Hopefully, this should solve the problem

yes there is not recall for brake problems...i just took my titan 2004 back from dealer because they don't want to fix the brake rotors and calipers under warranty (my titan has less than 30,000 miles) saying the brake pads was overused causing calipers stuck to the rotor overheat it and breaking calipers seals and leaking...but you know what?just happened on one side of the front(right)....and it happened when i was driving over 65 miles/hour i tried to brake but the truck pulled me to the left when i try to brake....it was raining hard....so i took the truck to the dealer and they try to charge me $1340 to fix it because....they say it was caused by bad maintenance of my vehicle...i just bought it three month ago... they said i was driving with this brake problem for a while....this i wasn't true because i took the truck right away to them...but the mechanic or technician said i was my fault...at last i took my truck back home with no brakes and looking for somebody to fix my truck...i hate nissan....they said also there is no recalls for my truck?????just one for a computer problem???no warranty to trust it all???????
