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

When filling my 2001 Nissan Frontier crew cab SC with fuel, it consistently overflows. This has happened at different gas stations, so I know that it is a problem with the vehicle. Every time I set the automatic pump on full flow, the shutoff is not in time to prevent gasoline from overflowing onto the side of the vehicle and on the ground. The intermediate setting also results in a fuel spill. The only way I have not had a fuel spill is to slow the pump's setting to the slowest level. I had the vehicle inspected at ed martin Nissan in indianapolis, and they replaced the fuel tank assembly. This did not fix the problem and then I was told that Nissan was reviewing the problem. I have contacted Nissan but they have not provided any sort of meaningful response.
