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.

2004 Nissan Titan Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 012013

Titan ES V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 104,000 miles


I took my vehicle into the dealership where I bought it to have an oil change and tire rotation. I asked them to check the cooling system because it wasn't heating properly. They told me that I needed a new radiator because the transmission fluid was leaking into the radiator, and that there's a possibility that radiator fluid could leak into the transmission and ruin it.

I was made aware by another Nissan truck owner that these was recall on the Titan and the Frontier for that exact problem, but my Nissan dealer did not explain/tell me that.

Now I'm truly suspicious of my dealer for not informing me of that recall. Hmmm!

The Nissan brand has experienced transmission fluid leaks into the radiator in its Pathfinder and Xterra products. I have the same thing happening with a 2004 Nissan Titan. Dealer tells me it will cost $5,500 to fix this. They say Nissan has not recognized it as a problem and therefore all cost burden is mine and mine alone.
