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.

problem #1

Frontier 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,000 miles
I bought the 2001 Frontier brand new with only 10 or 20 miles on it. Since then I've had it in the shop 8 times for the A/C (thats right 8 times). Each time the service people assure me it's fixed this time. The A/C blows hotter than the heater does and thats ridiculous. When I go there the service manager ( pat burke ) treats me like a criminal instead of a customer. As of today the truck was fixed once and for all, according to them, but I've heard that 7 times before. Very concerned and tired!!! nv.
