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 #1

Jan 182005

Pathfinder 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,700 miles


Vehicle dies running without warning at any speed after the engine has reached normal running temp. So far only occurs in below 32 degree outside temps. Usually restarts (once didn't at all) continues to die after about 1/10 of a mile 2 or 3 times and most of the time I can inch my way home. Problem has not been diagnosed by dealer because they cannot duplicate it. They have so far replaced the throttle control sensor and switch and have a fuel pump relay on order based on a bulletin that they admit doesn't match my symptoms. I have contacted Nissan Consumer Affairs without much satisfaction and consider the vehicle dangerous to drive. It has been at the dealer more than 30 days since Dec. 2003 and is currently there for 2 weeks. Below is current incident date. Fyi since this problem is undiagnosed and I was required to choose a component to submit complaint form, I picked fuel delivery based on latest parts order.
