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. Notes: The 2005-2007 Pathfinder appears to have a widespread defect where coolant leaks into the transmission, causing transmission failure around 90,000 miles. Repair costs are typically upwards of $3,500.

According to the New York Times & a class action lawsuit, the defect actually extends through 2010 model year. More info here.

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder. While the vehicle was parked, the contact heard the alarm sound and noticed smoke under the hood. There were no warning lights illuminated prior to the failure. The fire department extinguished the fire and filed a report. The manufacturer inspected the vehicle, but did not provide an explanation as to what caused the failure. The insurance company stated that the wiring harness caught fire. The vehicle was towed to the dealer. The hood and wiring harness were burned, but the vehicle is salvageable. The failure and current mileages were 45,000. Updated 8/28/09 updated 09/03/09.
