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.

2001 Nissan Frontier Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 122002


  • miles


On June 12th,2002, the left-side tailgate of my 2001 Frontier truck spontaneously detached itself from the body of the vehicle. And, for the sake of my safety and the vehicles around me, I could not immediately pull over to stop the vehicle. Hence, while I drove, this "dangling" tailgate continually banged the bumper and various areas of the vehicle, causing paint damage, indentations, and a grave safety hazard for myself and the surrounding vehicles/people. Thankfully, the tailgate did not completely fly off of the vehicle to cause further injury and/or fatality to myself nor the surrounding vehicles/people. To this date (two months after informing the manufacturer), my vehicle has not been repaired and no one from Nissan has contacted me regarding resolving and remedying this defect and grave safety hazard.
