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.

problem #2

Feb 072014

Pathfinder LE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 161,577 miles


It was extremely frustrating that the dealership couldn't find the problem after looking at the truck three times. Finally a buddy that is a certified mechanic listened to my complaints, crawled underneath the rear axle of the truck, and immediately finds the problem. The passenger side rear lower sway bar was bent. Since replacement no more problems.

I must say that this truck is only highway driven, the assumption made was that while the truck was at the shop, the arms for the lift used was not properly set and therefore left my sway bar damaged.

Pathfinder LE 3.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 250,000 miles

My Pathfinder loses control from the rear-end over 50mph, the only way to gain control of the vehicle is to take your foot off the gas. I have had new tires, shocks, struts, bushings, and several alignments. If I put weight in the back (400-500 lbs) the problem is not as frequent, unless I drive over 70mph. I have spoken to so many Pathfinder owners in Colorado and Arizona, they all have the same problem. We have shared possible fixes, yet none of them work.

The Death Sway is like the vehicle is on the wildest hydraulic ride, moving side to side and up and down. Almost like an earthquake ride at Universal Studios.

Any help would be accepted... Thank you
