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.

When the door opened the contact was unable to close it. The failure always occurred whenever it was extremely cold.

The approximate failure mileage was 55,000.. updated 03/03/11 the consumer stated the drier's door exterior door handle would freeze when the temperature dropped below 20 degrees.

Drivers side door mechanism freezes. Door can be opened from the inside but will not latch and close properly. This cause the driver to hold the door closed or to lock themselves in the car, to try and defeat the latch mechanism. Nissan dealer has been contacted, but they claim no manufacturer responsibility, although they do have a $500 fix, for this non-safety related issue.

On my 2004 Nissan Titan the driver side door latch freezes in cold weather preventing the door latch from engaging when closing the door. The door will not shut and has to be held shut while driving.

The contact stated the passenger's door will not latch in cold weather. The vehicle has been taken to the dealership twice, they told him there was no solution for this problem. Updated 1/4/2006 - the dealer replaced the passenger side door latch and handle.

Problems with vehicle's passenger side door not locking. The passenger's side door would not lock. The consumer contacted the dealer who ordered the parts and contacted the consumer when they arrived. After the parts were replaced the problem still existed. The consumer was told that the incorrect parts were ordered/received and they placed a new order. To date the vehicle has not been repaired. The consumer is seeking financial compensation for rental fees and car payments sin the vehicle is not in her possession. It was discovered that the factory put in power door locks on the vehicle when they should have been equipped with manual door locks.
