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

Jul 012005

Frontier 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 30,136 miles


The truck was taken by the owner to the dealership for inspection. The dealer found out that the left outer tie rod end had to replaced. The dealer advised that they would have to do a repair of the whole linkage system. Dealer advised they are aware of the problem but a recall has not been issued yet. So many repairs now will be at the cost of the owner. The consumer has no idea there was a problem with the tie rod end until the inspection. No indication as to why or how the tie rod became loose. The tie rod end is located on the front left side of the vehicle. The problem is not repaired yet. No warning lights on in the vehicle. No other problems with vehicle.
