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: While there are fewer "radiator leaked into transmission" complaints for the 2008 model year, they are starting to pile up. Buyer beware.

Nissan has extended their radiator warranty on 2005-2010 Pathfinders to 8 years/80,000 miles. However the average mileage for transmission failure for earlier model years is 95,000 miles, which conveniently (for Nissan) is just past the limit of their extended warranty. Owners beware.

2008 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

The passenger side "airbag check" and seat belt warning light is on on my vehicle several months ago. They are on whenever the engine is on, whether there is a passenger on that seat or not. My car failed to pass inspection because of it. I noticed from the nhtas website that certain Nissan Pathfinder sold in Massachusetts in 2008 are included in the takata airbag recall. However, my car is not yet included in the recalling list. By the way, this vehicle has never been involved in any collision or other accident. Thank you so much for your attention to this matter.
