I noted my Titan's steering wheel vibrated if I try to "stop on a time" after going 60-70 mph or faster. Is it normal for a truck? It never happened to me on a car for other SUV.

If you are emergency braking, you should only feel the pumping of the ABS through the brake pedal. Try going about 30 to 40 mph and then hit the brakes hard like you would have to for a traffic light that just turned red in front of you. If you feel a vibration or shimmy through the steering wheel then you most likely have the brake judder problem. There is a TSB to fix it under warranty.

That's what I was thinking, too.

Tyltan, take it to the dealer and have them check it out. Mine also had the shimmy, but I never noticed it. Asked the dealer to check it out and he said that it did have it and they'd have to do the TSB. Got it all done with no further problems.

I can tell you what it is .Its the rotors that are warped. You need to take the truck back in and have them change the brakes and rotors.
I took my truck in after only 300 miles and they resurfaced my rotors and installed new brake pads. Fixed the problem, no more shimmy on the front end when you step on the brakes.....

I called the dealer regarding the brake. They said that Nissan aware of the problem but the parts are back order. They don't know when the parts come in. The are 38 Titans infront of waiting for parts.

How many people in this forum have the same problem? I am supprise there are that many people in my area have the same problem and that only 1 dealer that I called so far.

I'm not sure of how many on this forum have this problem but I can tell you it's a VERY common problem. Your not alone so hang in there and look forward to smooth braking in the future...

I haven’t had that problem myself (not yet anyway) But I was reading on another forum and a lot of the members have had that problem. They said dealerships would offer to rotate the rotors, I don’t think anyone would be happy with that answer.

Definitely call other dealers. I know you're in the OC, which one do you usually go to? I had mine done at Nissan in Rancho Santa Margarita and waited only a week for the parts but that was a few months ago.

The steering wheel shaking problem is getting worst. It shook very bad when I try to stop at 40 mph. I called three dealers and they all have parts back order.
