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.

2001 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 202013

Pathfinder LE 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles


A really great SUV, however we really enjoy playing cd's when we travel, so this is a serious problem. Also, only my wife and I drive the car and operate the cd player and take great care in operating equipment, so the unit was never abused. The unit should not have failed with the limited use it received. It has to be sub-standard parts or construction that caused the failure.

(reported on)

Pathfinder LE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 54,000 miles

I had the same problem with my Bose 6 CD changer but, my CD was stuck and had to be extracted from the player which was not only a pain but the CD was completely chewed up. I tried going to the dealer but when I called to schedule the appointment they said their earliest appointment was in 2 weeks. During said two week period of time I took a long road trip and went over on my warranty mileage by under 100 miles. Nissan refused to do anything but remove the player and have me pay to ship it back to Bose. Bose said they do not actually make the changer only the radio portion of it and therefore I would just be wasting my money.
