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.

The fuel gauge read I had a quarter tank of gas, but I ran out. Upon searching the internet for issues such as this there are too many to list here. Google search for "2004 Pathfinder fuel level problem" there have been multiple issues with the design of the sensor and this is known by Nissan. Being disabled and running out of gas is not safe and should be addressed by Nissan to resolve this issue.

After a gas fill, the service engine light came on. The fuel indicator showed zero fuel even when the tank was full. Nissan dealer said the fuel sending unit needs to be replaced. Estimated repair cost $350! did some research online and found that the fuel sending unit has been bad on several of these vehicles. Nissan acknowledged that this is a known issue and there have been recalls but we are out of warranty by mileage (but not by vehicle age) and hence they would not cover the cost. This is a *safety* issue, regardless of the mileage that we think Nissan should fix at their cost. It's simply a defective component that was installed on thousands of vehicles. Nissan needs to be hold accountable!
