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.

Rear axle seals leaking onto rear brakes and wheels. First noticed on 11/30/2007; however, the extent of the leak and oily residue indicate that the problem has existed for sometime.

While applying the brake pedal vehicle vibrated uncontrollably. Vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection, and mechanic determined that the rotors, disc, and brake pads needed to be replaced, and replaced them twice. However, the problem recurred.

  • 4,500 miles
Purchased 2004 Nissan Titan SE four door May 23rd for work. I average approximately 3,500 miles per month. The steering wheel started rocking back and forth violently every time I stepped on the brakes after about 4,500 miles. I took it in to the dealer and had the brake disks turned and the pads, bolts, miscellaneous items replaced under warranty. The truck started doing the same thing at 12,000 miles, around September, 2004. This time they replaced the discs, calipers, pads, bolts, everything and made all new again. I drove it and it happened again at 18,000 miles. At this point I was becoming very frustrated and angry at the situation. The Nissan dealer promised me that they had just received the most up to date repair kit from the Nissan factory and that they were being told that this should take care of the problem. The truck was braking fine until I reached 23,000 miles at the end of December, 2004. I spoke to the customer service department at the dealership and lodged a formal complaint. I was asked when was the last time that I had my brakes done and was told that they had a new repair kit since then. I told him that I was told this the last time and yet here I am again with the same problem. I had my brakes done again on Thursday December 30th, 2004. This means that my brakes have been done four times in the past six months since I purchased the vehicle.

Brakes have warped after only 4000 miles. Experiencing severe vibrations when braking at any speed, especially at highway speeds. Severe vibration affects handling of vehicle and performance of the brake system. - Nissan has issued a tsb, but it merely fixes the symptoms by turning the rotors, and doesn't fix the cause of the warping.
