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.

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,000 miles


Nissan Titan purchased Jan 04, it has been back to the dealer 3 times now to fix the front brakes. After about 7-9K miles a severe vibration occurs from the front brakes mainly at highway speeds. This in my opinion presents a serious safety issues as the whole truck vibrates violently.

Gas tank "spews" gas at you when filling. The tank has been replaced and still does this. The brakes "judder" and cause the vehicle to shake. They have been repaired three times and are still not correct. Nissan refuses to admit this is a significant safety issue. There are technical service bulletins on the brakes.

The front brakes on the 2004 Nissan Titan truck began failing after 5000 miles. The dealer acknowledges that this is a design flaw, however, the dealer does not have the parts to fix the brakes. During heavy breaking, there is extreme vibration and shudder which could lead to a loss of control

The consumer is experiencing a problem with the brakes. The consumer had to replace the brakes and rotors every 5,000 mi. When applying the brakes, the suspension vibrated which caused the entire front of the vehicle to shake. The owner contacted the manufacturer but received no assistance. The parking brake does not hold vehicle. Emergency brake found to be out of adjustment. Tailgate striker rod out of position and had to be replaced. Fuel door spring/clip deformed.

Multiple brake and steering shudder problems with 2004 Titan Nissan SE crew cab truck, dealer makes mfg suggested repairs but shudder returns creating safety worries and fear of losing control of vehicle. Moreover, transmission coolant line replaced wherein dealer informs me that blowout could lead to failure. Front tires excessive wear, vibration and shudder with or without brake application. Headlight switch design flawed, easily turned off when turn stalk activated or lights are dimmed from high to low beam. All the above problems occured and still are occuring within first 3500 miles!!

The consumer had the brakes serviced five times during the past year. When taken to get serviced, they could not determine the cause of this problem. The first time the brakes were replaced because of warping.

The consumer stated he took the vehicle in to have the brakes inspected after discovering a bulletin on the internet. Two months later the brakes failed, which caused the vehicle to strike another vehicle and roll over. Consequently, the air bags did not deploy.
