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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: Radiators are still cracking, leaking coolant and destroying transmissions. Which is a shame when you consider that otherwise, this would be a great small pickup truck.

After filling gas tank it drops to empty and service engine light comes on. After 43 miles it goes back up and then seems to work until next fill up. If idling in park for a few minutes it drops to empty again. Then the next day it goes back up again. It is a constant problem and I never know how much gas I have other than tracking mileage. Recall many others with same problem. Thanks.

Fuel gauge on 2006 Nissan Frontier indicated 1/4 tank of fuel when it was actually empty. I ran out of gas on a busy highway, very dangerous exit to side of road.
