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.

Automobile has body rust and rust like staining. Nissan attempted to repair by putting sanding pudding and painting it. Car still has constant rust problems. Nissan corporate office is unable to come up with solution at this time. The rear bumper in particular has that issue Nissan cut holes in it to drain water out after it rains to prevent further rusting. Ongoing issue with no solution. This is a 2011 model purchased new.

The contact owns a 2011 Nissan Frontier. The contact was driving approximately 35 mph when the front driver's side door opened independently. The contact manually held the door in order for it to remain closed while driving, due to the faulty latch. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for diagnosis and the contact was awaiting a repair. The manufacturer was not notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 24,530.
