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 2010 model when they extended their radiator warranty on 2005-2010 Pathfinders to 8 years/80,000 miles in response to the transmission defect.

While driving on highrise pkg lot hear grinding noise, once outside I got to corner stop and turning to the right I step on the brakes, however the car would not took approximately one car length to come to stop moving, all the time with the brakes applied to the bottom. No other incident for a week. Two Sunday's ago at church the same happen, apply brakes and car continue moving, it took about a car lengths to come to stop. Luckily there was no one walking at the church parking. It is at the dealer since then for repair. Is waiting (9days)for the ESC module, which went bad and without it, they can not determine the brakes problem. Once that is replace they will test the ABS computer because nothing appears to be wrong with the mechanical/physical parts of the brakes. The car has gave all the schedule maintenance bless you the book at the dealers service shop for Nissan.
