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: For years, Nissan trucks and SUVs have had problems with coolant destroying the transmission. And for years, Nissan has done nothing about it.

The 2007 is no different than the 2006 and 2005. Just avoid it.

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Frontier. The contact stated that while driving 40 mph, the engine stalled without warning. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic. The technician diagnose that the radiator housing fractured which caused the radiator fluid to penetrate the transmission. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure and current mileage was 125,000.

On 01-13-2011 I was driving my 2007 Nissan Frontier pick up on pa sr 92S. Between nicholson and tunkhannock ABS and slip warning lights came on. I called my Nissan dealer immediately, explained the problem and difficulties I had handling the vehicle on the snow covered road. I was told that earliest appointment I could get was 01-20-2011. On my way back, when I drove on another snowy road I applied 4X4 system but it failed to engage. Now the ABS, slip and 4X4 did not work and I had hard times to make it safely home. I called the dealer again a was again told that I could get it fixed on 01-20-2011. I decided to report this problem and I hope that your investigation of my complain will make driving, especially winter driving of Nissan vehicles safer.

First noticeable complaint is the automatic transmission that does not shift back down in lower gear when climbing a hill. It jerks and shakes at that moment.secondly, the tire pressure sensor does not go off after correcting the tire pressure and keeping it constant. Were told the dealer will have to reset, which they did once and it happened again so for 2 years we have just lived with it, keeping check on tire pressure the old way. Last but definitely not least for this is the cost factor involved, is the alignment cannot be done due to needing to purchase and have installed 4 camber kits! Nissan should have done this already for a $25,000 vehicle!! oh and finally this just happened but the rear passenger power window switch went completely out!

2007 Nissan Frontier automatic - the truck does not downshift automatically when slowing while climbing a slight hill. This began when the truck was new. The truck begins to jerk when slowing just as a manual trans vehicle jerks when driving too slow while in 4th gear. To force the trans to downshift I would press the accelerator pedal a little more. The dealer said it's normal but I have never experienced this event in any vehicle I've driven and does not seem normal to me. Dealer "reprogrammed" transmission- problem still exists--but at different speeds and rpms. The fact there is a repair bulletin indicates Nissan is trying to skirt around the problem by not replacing transmissions.
