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

Mar 082005

Frontier 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,500 miles


2/25/05 I purchased a used Nissan froniter SC '01. One week later the "service engine" light appeared. A Nissan technician diagnosed the problem as the oxygen sensors not providing feedback due to condensation in the wire harnesses. The tech. Told me that there was a bulletin he found stating that the wire harnesses in that year Frontier were found to be faulty and replaced with updated harnesses, which I would have to buy along with four sensors, to fix my problem. The cost in parts was $965 and labor is estimated at $880. Nissan will not even pay for partial parts even though they admit it is faulty product. I have contacted them to complain with the appropriate department and now they will not return my calls.
