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.

  • 32,000 miles


At 32000 on the freeway hadn't shifted in miles clutch begins to smoke, transmission slips power loss, with five miles lost any gear in transmission forward or reverse and no clutch. If it wasn't night and I was in heavy traffic would not have been good. Unknown for sure either weak defective clutch throw out bearing or bad hydraulic clutch system.5T

Frontier 4WD

  • 2,500 miles
Traveling at approximately 55 miles per hour on a hill coasting on the down slope, the transmission disengages. When approaching the base of the hill, I stepped on the accelerator to resume speed and the transmission was not engaged causing the motor to speed up, but the vehicle continued to slow down. The gear shift on the automatic transmission was firmly engaged at the time. This has happened several times since purchasing the vehicle.
