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: There are no warning signs of the same "radiator leaked and killed my transmission" complaints that have plagued previous model years.

For earlier Pathfinder model years (2005-2008), a defect in the radiator allows engine coolant to leak into the transmission. However this defect doesn't appear to affect Pathfinders from 2009 & later. Nissan did include the 2009-2010 models when they extended their radiator warranty on 2005-2010 Pathfinders to 8 years/80,000 miles in response to the transmission defect.

2009 Nissan Pathfinder Owner Comments

My seatbelts do not lock when the breaks are mashed. For example when a breaks are suddenly mashed in the seatbelts catch to prevent the passenger from going anywhere. (mine don't) I purchased this vehicle in March 2009. In May 2009, the dealership requested that a bring it back for further diagnostic examination. When I returned in June they stated that my vehicle was not made for the seatbelts to lock. That my vehicle is properly working. I know this is a safety hazard.
