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.

2004 Nissan Armada. Right exhaust manifold is cracked. Vehicle purchased 08/30/10 with 75,000 miles. At abeloff Nissan in bartonsville, pa. 09/07/2010 for back up sensor and control unit replacement. No other issues cited. 03.08.2011, miles: 83696 back at abeloff Nissan for ECM relay safety recall. Inspection done at that time. No exhaust leaks cited. 08/16/2011, miles: 89312, vehicle at local mechanic for state yearly inspection. Right exhaust manifold cracked, looks to have been cracked for a long time. I cannot believe that in 5616 miles, the exhaust manifold is cracking apart. Research online has shown a known problem with the Nissan titan/Armada exhaust manifolds. I would like both left and right manifolds replaced by Nissan at no cost.

Both exhaust manifolds failed twice. At 40,000 miles and 80,000 miles. Nissan replaced under warranty at 40K with same defective manifolds which failed again at 80K. Nissan offered to replace with same defective parts for a total of $2400. Leaks weren't discovered till 83K miles. I now own a vehicle that has consistently leaked carbon monoxide into the passeger cabin. My spouse is wondering if this was the cause of my six year old's brain cancer which was diagnosed 4 years ago when the manifolds were leaking for the first time. This vehicle has been her daily driver since new. It seems that Nissan Armada and titan vehicles have exhaust manifolds that fail between 30/40K and Nissan replaces with same defective part.

This is in regards to the exhaust manifolds. This is the second time I have had to replace them. The first time they were still under warranty. My 2004 Armada was at 66K miles. The Nissan deal that I took the vehicle too told me that Nissan has problems with their manifolds. They corrected the issue, but almost exactly 66K miles later the manifolds have again cracked. Now I am outside of warranty and required to pay for a replacement that is clearly a defect in the Nissan product. Manifolds should not be going bad after 66K miles.
