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.

2004 Nissan Frontier Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 052010

Frontier 2.4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,850 miles


2004 Nissan Frontier automatic transmission failed at about 57,000 miles.... extended warranty company claims pre-existing condition and refuses to fix it. I ended up having to pay for the repair myself at a reputable transmission shop. The mechanic informs me the transmission failure was due to a bad radiator which had an internal rupture that allowed the coolant to mix with the transmission fluid. Further, he said this is a commonly known defect for a number of nissan vehicles between 2004 - 2010 and that I should look up the possibility of a class action suit already in the works. So far I have posted my information to several places and thought it wise to post here as well.

Thx all.
