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.

Frontier

My 2001 Nissan Frontier has had five recalls. The recall that I am unsatisfied with is related to the fuel system: The Nov. 2002 recall of the fuel storage tank and the May 2004 recall of the fuel pump. These repairs are pending and have been since June 30, 2008. The fuel tank is unavailable and has been for 108 days, as of today Oct. 15. it has been inoperable and has been at the dealer since June 30. Original issue began on June 13, 2008. The vehicle struggled to turn over, emitted heavy dark exhaust, the smell of gasoline was present, the service-engine light went on and I experienced a loss of power while getting it to the fitzgerald auto mall dealer in chambersburg pa. The required work was completed on June 18. The repair work included replacing the knock sensor (code P0325) and related gaskets, replacing the vent control valve and charcoal canister (code P1441). There was no mention of any recall work regarding the fuel system. I drove the truck for six days. On June 29 the exact same symptoms appeared. I got the truck home (barely) and called the service manager. On June 30, the diagnosis came back. Same problem, different diagnosis. The codes were pulled and P1441 came up again, but this time the required part to repair the vehicle is a new fuel storage tank-- a part that was recalled. My repairs in June were in excess of $1200. I also needed a loaner vehicle at $35 a day. I am out $$1,636.42 and have made 7 bi-weekly car payments at $144 for a truck I can't drive. The regional specialist for Nissan has promised to take care of the payment and reimbursement for the repairs, but has not delivered yet. Nissan won't reimburse until the part is in the vehicle. My case number with Nissan is 6262993. The part is "due" at the dealer the last week of October, however a recall repair should not take 4 months. My complaint is not with the chambersburg dealer but with Nissan North America.
