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.

2003 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

Pathfinder 6-cyl

There was a recall on the driver side strut tower due to server rusting. The dealership repaired that area. I was hearing a noise from the front right passenger side and found out that the rust had damage to that strut tower. My ABS and brake lights finally come on and I had S lost of brake fluid. The strut tower colapse severing the right front brake line. The dealer inspected it and said that they would not repair this. I, M not sure why the left front strut tower would be covered and the right front in not. I had leased this vehical and when the lease expired we purchased the car outright. We heard about the recall when I had one remaining payment on the car. Now with the car paid in full it is no longer safe to drive.
