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

Frontier 4WD

While driving at about 70 to 75, under acceleration, I heard a loud noise and then the vehicle's rpms dropped down to about 500 as if the vehicle had no gas. I pulled over and turned the truck off I made sure that there was gas, and started the vehicle again and the check engine light came on. It seemed to run at about the correct RPM so I took it directly to the dealer. They had it for a week, and ultimately said that it was a bad oxygen sensor (the vehicle is supercharged) that caused the problem. I am not too confident in that explanation. God willing, the problem is fixed. The truck was only 3 weeks old at the time of the incident.
