Used Car: 2009 Nissan Titan Review
With a dated design and poor reliability score, the 2009 Nissan Titan isn’t the best choice among 2009 full-size pickups.
The 2009 Nissan Titan is ranked:
When it was new, reviewers said the 2009 Nissan Titan is a decent performer, with a controlled ride, communicative steering and a powerful engine. Although it lacks the number of engine choices that other 2009 full-size pickups have, critics said the lone V8 engine provides plenty of power. Two- and four-wheel drive were both offered when it was new. The Titan achieves 13/17 mpg city/highway, which is a bit low compared to some key rivals. The Titan can tow up to 9,500 pounds, which is similar to the Dodge Ram 1500’s capacity, but less than some of the stronger entries in the class.
Reviewers agreed that the Titan’s aging design was most noticeable inside the cabin. They said that the materials look and feel cheap, especially compared with most of its rivals that were more recently redesigned. Unlike most full-size pickups, the 2009 Titan was not offered in a three-seat regular cab configuration, but only extended and crew cabs, with seating for up to six. Most reviewers said that the front seats have adequate comfort and support, and most agree that the back seat is comfortable as well. The base trim has few notable standard features. Upper trims and option packages made available features like power windows, locks and mirrors, front bucket seats, leather seats, an eight-speaker Rockford Fosgate stereo with satellite radio, Bluetooth, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power moonroof, navigation and a rear-seat entertainment system.

Other Trucks to Consider
The 2009 Ford F-150 ranks highly for its upscale interior and strong engines. Additionally, the F-150 has good safety and reliability scores, and can tow more than the Titan.
Reviewers liked the 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500’s refined, comfortable ride and spacious interior. They also liked its available V8 engines, which they said provide ample power for all situations.
