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.

2004 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 62,000 miles


My 2004 Nissan Pathfinder was stuck in "park" I had to have it towed to dealer. I'm told the whole shift mechanism needs to be replaced ($900). I searched for recall on this but found none. This vehicle has 62,000 miles, I feel such a defect should be covered by the manufacturer. As if this weren't trouble enough, it took the dealer two days to get the part and repair the vehicle, leaving me to rent a car at my expense.

The shifter on my Pathfinder was stuck in park, they replaced the shifter solenoid which now the shifter is doing fine. I feel like this should not have happened so soon. I'm not sure if there is a recall on this but think there should be. I was so disappointed that I was having this trouble so soon. I don't know what they did with the old part. I know I have waited a while to report this but I have been trying to find out if there were any recalls on this. Please respond back asap. Thank you.
