ExCon: "The Nissan Titan for example is built in the US AND USES 85 percent US PARTS! This truck won award after award when it came out. Why? Because Japanese Companies tend to spend alot more time and money designing and engineering their Assembly Plants and their Product. The Titan blew away the competition in comparisons but odds are that the mentality of a great percentage of "pick up truck owners" is not conducive to change." My other car is a Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab. I tow a 10,000+ pound fifth wheel with it. Want to see something funny? Hook my fifth wheel up to the Nissan Titan and watch it fall apart! The rear-end is about the size of an oversized softball.
