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 #3

Frontier 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 64,000 miles


Water gets in the seal of the upper rear tail light/cargo light. The water leaks through damaging the headliner and carpet. Also blew my fuse and none of the lights work in it, as well as blowing out the fuse every time I replace it. There is still no updated version or recall for it all you can do is get a new one and hope it lasts a little longer.

Everytime it rains the 3rd brake light fills up with water. Had Nissan replace it once and it still does it. Nissans fix to there problem isn't even a fix.

2002 Nissan fontier crewcab. The 3rd tailight/stoplight that is mounted to the roof has a design flaw. First water fills the light assembly then it leaks into the cab. The carpet in the truck is now ruined, along with the headliner. A heavy downpour will force cups of water into the cab - not just a few drops. See ODI#10025784 - as mine is not an isolated case. This problem needs a Nissan service bullitin or a recall.
