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.

2011 Nissan Frontier Owner Comments

problem #3

May 182016


  • 60,265 miles


Both rear axles are leaking at 60,265 miles. I was told this could lead to brake pad contamination which would reduce braking capability as well as the effectiveness O the parking brake.

problem #2

May 072013


  • 34,000 miles
The vent for the rear differential clogged and a back up of pressure pushed the seals on the axle causing extensive damage to the axle and brakes. I do not drive off road or submerge the drive train.

- Dover, NH, USA

problem #1

Jan 032013

Frontier 6-cyl

  • 17,000 miles
Brake rotors have developed severe rust along brake pad surface. Not superficial rust. The surface is "pitted" with rust. Vehicle has 17000 miles. All 4 rotors require "turning" or replacement way too early. This confirmed by two reliable mechanics.
