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.

2004 Nissan Frontier Owner Comments

Frontier 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission

The base model 2004 Nissan Frontier is sold without the rear bumper causing an unsafe condition. In the event of a rear end collision, the lack of a bumper would transfer 100% of the energy from the impact to the body of the car, injuring the truck's occupants. Additionally, a rear bumper would stop a vehicle from being pushed under the Frontier in the event of a rear end collision.

Frontier 6-cyl

I am making you aware of a potentially unsafe situation. Nissan sells Frontier trucks (called the "base" model) without rear bumpers. I received a ticket while driving my new vehicle, having been told that this was illegal. Nissan denies this. In any case, it would seem to compromise safety in persons purchasing Nissan Frontier trucks.
