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.

2002 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 052007

Pathfinder 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 88,000 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Nissan Pathfinder. The contact purchased a new child seat and installed it with the lap and shoulder harness. As a result, she discovered that the seat belt would not tighten and/or loosen. The dealer stated that the original seat belts in the vehicle were not made for a majority of child seats. The dealer further stated that the shoulder harness was defective and was a common failure with this year, make, and model. The seat belts failed to engage because they were being over-extended. The contact moved the center seat belt to the passenger side; however, she no longer has a center seat belt and the movement of the seat belts did not correct the failure. The failure and current mileages were 88,000.

I have a 2002 Nissan Pathfinder manufactured in April of that year. My vehicle does not have the lower anchors for the latch system, but does have a rear tether anchor in the floorboard of the trunk. I can not securely install a rear-facing convertible crs due to extened webbing on the seat belts. I have tried 3 different crs models unsucessfully. I have contacted the car dealership, maufacturer and a certified car seat safety inspection point. At this point, there is not a remedy to this problem.
