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

problem #2

Vehicle speed control. When the vehicle was new my wife and I were both having problems of stepping on the brake and accelerator pedals at the same time. I asked the nisson dealer in my area to fix the brake pedal adjustment because the pedal depressed so far that it would be at or below the accelerator pedal's level. At first they declined. After I told them that there was an adjustment on the brake pedal travel and that it was a "safety issue", the nisson dealer fixed it. We have not had a problem since. This problem has shown up in several of the 2003 Pathfinder complaints. I hope this report will save someone from an accident.

Unintended acceleration at red light and in parking lot. Low brake pedal when applied, foot hits gas pedal while braking. This is a very dangerous problem that other Pathfinder owners reported.
