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.

There is some shaking in front end between 55 mph and 70 mph. Contacted dealer 8 times, but so far no remedy. Also, the brakes continuously roar or skip.

problem #4

Pathfinder 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Excessive effort needed to engage braking system. When traveling at higher than 30 mph speeds or when vehicle load is heavy, driver has to depress brake pedal all way to floor to get the braking system to engage. The manufacturer representative inspected the brakes and indicated to be normal.

There is an extremely long amount of brake pedal travel( approx 1/2 way to floor) before the brakes engage. Also, after the brakes engage it requires a lot of pressure to stop the vehicle. This occurs on almost every time I engage the brakes.

ABS brake systems should be removed from automobiles or the owner should be able to have them removed.

  • Automatic transmission

Brakes felt very spongy which caused extended stopping distance and MA Y result in a crash. Dealer said it was the characterisict of vehicle. Pedal movement before brakes engage was excessive. Consumer have to pump pedal before the brakes become firm.
