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.

Titan SE 4x4 5.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,083 miles

I purchased the truck new in Dec 2003. I use the truck as a truck but it's no abused or neglected. A friend of mine noticed a small amount of anti freeze where I had my truck parked and called me as I was leaving church. I had not left the parking lot. I looked under it to figure out where it was leaking and was unable to find any location. I attempted to go home and check it and made it about 10 yards and the dash board lit up. I let the engine cool off and then filled the system with anti freeze and drove it to a merchant tire shop 2 blocks way and had it repaired. The truck is not driven hard and I believe that over all the titan is a good vehicle and I like it a lot but this did disappoint me some what. I ended up taking it to a nissan dealership cause the transmission was slipping which cost me some additional cash to have the tranny flushed and refilled.

Titan SE 5.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 91,000 miles

COME TO FIND OUT THE GUY THAT REPLACED IT TOLD ME AND IT'S JUST A SMALL RADIATOR SHOP BEHIND HIS HOUSE. SAID HE KEEPS ABOUT 20 RADIATORS ON HAND BECAUSE SO MANY TITANS COME THRU THERE AND EVERYONE HAS THE SAME EXACT LEAK AND HAVE BETWEEN 80000 AND 100000 MILES ON THEM. NISSAN DECIDED THEY WOULD REPLACE OR REIMBURSE THE MODELS I BELIEVE 05 AND NEWER. ASKED THEM ABOUT IT AND THEY SAID THAT IS ALL THEY ARE REQUIRED TO COVER ACCORDING TO THE NTSB. I DIDN'T KNOW RADIATORS WERE PART OF SCHEDULED REPLACEMENT ON ANY VEHICLE.

Titan LE 5.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,000 miles

Noticed that I was leaving puddles of coolant when parked, and smelled antifreeze. Found the leak from a cracked plastic tank on the radiator. Found a radiator online and installed myself. Unbelievable that a radiator would crack and leak with less than 100k miles.
