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.

2013 Nissan Frontier Owner Comments

problem #2

Aug 282015


  • 20,500 miles


My clutch has prematurely failed at 20500 miles. The truck is less then 2 years old and I have had continuous issues with the clutch including a service appointment at 3000 miles. The dealer ship told me this is not covered because the part is considered normal wear and tear. I have driven a clutch my entire life and have never had any issues like this before. It seems to me that some of Nissan clutch's are "lemons" and they do not want to take the responsibility to fix them because it is a high use part. I think the company should be held accountable for this issue and no one should have to go through what I am going through right now.
