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 4WD 6-cyl

I noticed small oil stains under the Nissan while parked in my driveway, at work, and anywhere I would stop. Upon further investigation, I noticed the oil pan is rusting through. I have done research and noticed I am not the only person experiencing this problem. This could be a major problem if the motor would lock up at a high rate of speed due to lack of lubrication. Got a quote of $1500 to replace the oil pan. Seems kind of steep considering I am not the one who put the, in my opinion, sub par oil pan on these vehicles. Updated 4/8/2015
