I'm not rich......I just live in the rust belt of NJ. I have winter cars that see the salt. I expect the Titan to last a long time.This isn't some exotic or fun sports car. Why did you buy it, new no less, and 4WD no less when you don't even drive it in the winter, to only use it 1,000 miles a year? I can understand if you say you are rich, but most people here would be scratching their heads.
