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.

Frontier N/A

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,600 miles

Was leaving work during a heavy thunderstorm, no warning transmission just quit, was forced to park it on the side of the road. Had it towed the following day to a transmission shop, which was on a Friday. I won't know about the cost until Monday sometime. I have always been diligent in keeping all the fluids at the proper levels, and I did check the fluid prior to it being towed it was grey in color and would indicate coolant possibly leaking into transmission. While the reports are pointing to 2005 - 2007 as having this problem this would indicate that the problem goes back further as the truck had just over 53,000 original miles on it and was a new purchase.
