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

problem #2

I have a 2004 Nissan Frontier crew cab, long bed (6') and the air bags (both driver & passenger) did not deploy. The entire front end of the truck suffered damage. The damage is significant enough that the hood folded upwards. My daughter hit an Impala without side impact air bags on the driver's side door hard enough to snap the Impala's front axle. This severe of an accident should have caused the air bags to deploy but, they didn't. I just saw this has occurred with others and it appears to be a fairly common problem as I found multiple websites speaking about this failure to deploy.
