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.

2002 Nissan Frontier Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 082001


  • miles


Entire vehicle vibrates at various speeds, vibration coming from under seat area of cab source is probably center carrier bearing of drive shaft. Dealer replaced driveshaft at 156miles after confirming problem on test drive. But still has vibration dealer made another attempt at repair then on third time in shop said it was normal. I filed under fl lemon law and manufacturer replaced all 4 tires. But truck still has vibration, it is now much more severe at 13000 miles and I aam still pursuing repurchase under fl lemon law. I think you should investigate this defect as I have first hand knowledge of another truck where the carrier failed such that the repairing dealer told the owner that he shouldnt drive his truck until the bearing was replaced because it could cause an accident. His truck was repurchased by Nissan.
