Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

My 2004 Nissan pathfinder Armada, radiator had an internal leak witch made my transmission fluid mix with my coolant fluid an now I need a new transmission and a radiator. Nissan fails to help me with my issue. When there was a earlier lawsuit on a very similar if not the same problem with the Nissan trucks from 2005 to 2010. I have now spoke with different mechanic's and they say that this is a very known issue with all their trucks. My truck only has 76,646 miles on it I was informed that my radiator had a warrant of only 36,000 miles witch I was not informed of when I bought this truck in 2008 because had I known about this I would have had them give me a new one right away. Please contact me at [xxx]. [xxx] thank you. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Transmission has water damage due to faulty radiator. It appears coolant and transmission fluid chambers have been breached. After web research this is clearly a problem Nissan is aware of and should be addressing.
