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.

2003 Nissan Frontier Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 072007

Frontier 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles


Service engine soon light came on and I began to smell gasoline. Gas tank rotted out around fuel sending unit gasket. Fuel sending unit and gas tank replaced. I do not have the old gas tank but I did photograph it digitally. I understand there was a recall for nearly 500,000 of these vehicles but dealer reported mine was not covered under recall.

Frontier 6-cyl

I received a recall letter concerning an installation of a fuel tank protector. I spoke with the Consumer Affairs office about a reimbursement of the cost to replace the tank (as noted in the recall letter). I faxed all requested information to Nissan, but have not received a reimbursement.
