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.

I noticed in may, 2016 that a paint spot about the size of a quarter on top of my right front fender was missing. I have noticed that my paint seems to be chipping along the edges. When I was loading up my truck this weekend, I noticed that the paint on my roof is chipping all along the rain gutters on both sides.

I've been having problems with a leak in the roof. I always noticed a damp musty smell after it rained but never found anything other than rear sliding window was damp until after a heavy rain I made a sharp left and caught out of the corner of my eye water flying out of the sliding window track. I've tried looking to see where it was coming from but can't find the exact location. Let me point out I never use the rear window. After months and yrs of frustration I siliconed the entire rear window and took off brake light and did that too but still getting water. I've read online its very common problem with no remedy yet.

Poor build and engineering quality of truck. Multiple, unresolved problems. Faulty brakes, ac, structure create many issues. Multiple rattles, squeaks, vibration at speed etc. Wind noise from windows. Door won't open intermittently. Mirrors vibrate to point of uselessness. Found 2 impact sockets when I brought it home, sockets were on bolts that were not tightened down... makes me wonder how much in the structure and suspension has not been properly tightened. 9 dealer visits in 9 months. Tailgate rubs on body, bed rusting, in Arizona!!! lemon!

The spray-in truck bed liner has already begun to discolor. It was originally black, but has begun to turn white in less that 3 months of owning the vehicle. Dealer said this is a known problem, but they are doing nothing about it. Nissan gave me the same response.
