Cummins parts are Cummins parts, not Nissan. The balance of the truck is Nissan which I would guess there will be a continuation of everything to do with the truck. Shouldn't be a problem.

However, I am with many of the posts perhaps this is the time to move on from your current TV Nissan before used values drop too much once the diesel model is eliminated.

The vehicle already took the largest nose-dive in value when it rolled off the lot and now it's ok to dump it just because it's on the lower slope and the potential is there for it to gradually decline?

Seems crazy to me.

If it does what you need it to and you still like it, keep it. Drive it till the wheels fall off.

I would love to have one of those titans with the cummins the only thing about any new diesel is at about 100k miles certain emisisons components will require replacement or servicing and those parts are expensive especially the dpf it it cant be cleaned some like on the fords cant be and that part is a around $4k. As far as repair your not going to have a problem getting it worked on cummins can take care of the engine and parts should be widely available for many years.

On the initial release, they split the cost between Cummins and Nissan, but would not do that this time.

Cummins has over a dozen different models, with varying power levels. That said, their mechanics are never going away.
Incorrect. The Cummins 5.0 is also being used in Tiffin motorhomes.

Don't worry about the engine, I had a problem with my 5.9 cummins the Dodge mechanics could not fix I called cummins Atlantic got an appointment they fixed it in less than two hours.

5.0 5.9 or 6.7 cummins will take care of them

I bought a Chevy Silverado 3500 Duramax last year. 113k miles on it. Previous owner had the DEF tank and injector replaces under Chevy extended warranty. I had a NoX sensor replaced. Otherwise emissions components are fine. It regens automatically when the DPF filter reaches 40grams of soot.
I would agree with this post reply if the prev owner was not letting the regen complete (was shutting the engine off frequently when the engine was trying to regen to burn off the DPF).
Otherwise I wouldnít think twice about buying a diesel with 100k miles on it unless it was a 6.4l Ford (time bomb).
