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.

1) through normal use, the rear axle seal on the passenger side of my 2004 Nissan Titan 4X4 gave out and started to leak onto the brake. I was able to catch this failure early. 2) eventually, enough gear oil would have leaked out, causing excessive heat and eventual failure of the rear differential. 3) I took the truck into the dealer and they repaired the leak by replacing all parts associated with sealing the axle.

Left rear axle seal blew out and leaked differential fluid. Differential fluid leaking on rear brake rotors which could cause brake failure. Failure occurred at 27,470 miles (no suspension modifications had been done to vehicle). Also, the rear differential fluid will leak slowly and cause the rear differential to lose fluid, causing failure. Nissan has replaced spacer axle (43070-7S200), bearing (40210-7S210), and seal (43252-7S200). This appears to be a very common problem with the Nissan Titan. As such, Nissan should address this issue and offer a permanent fix so owners will not be faced with the safety issue in the future.

2004 Nissan Titan rear axle seal leak. I was looking on the web when I cam across a lot of other Nissan Titan owners with the same problem. The 04 I have has 28K miles on it and the axel seals are leaking. This gear oil is now on the brake rotors and may cause a serious problem. I have stopped driving my truck until these seals are fixed. This appears to be a design related issue because I have never had this problem with any of the other autos that I have driven thru out the years. I can see this lead to a serious problem and it may be.

Two differential failures within 60,000 miles on my 200 Nissan Titan. Both failure involved wheel seal leaking and loud noises from the differential. My third differential installed by Nissan is the same Nissan stock number so I expect a failure within a few thousand miles. If I don't trade my Titan in before the 12,000 mile warranty on the new differential is up, I will have to pay the $ 3000 + to replace it. I see new stock numbers on the new 2007 models but Nissan refused to give me one of those unless I paid for it. Bet you can figure that one out. Nissan needs to extend the warranty on these differentials.

I have 50,000 miles on my 04 Titan crew cab SE and just found the right rear axle leaking oil all over the brake and wheel. I would think that a newer truck should not be leaking oil on to the brake as this could cause a serious wreck. I will be taking my truck to the shop this week to be repaired. I have not been driving the truck for fear that it could interfere with my braking power or ruin the rear axle by driving it with no oil.

I have a 2004 Nissan Titan. Had truck in for tire rotation. Service person noticed rear axle seals were leaking. Explained this is a big safety issue because of fluid leaking on brakes. Nissan said they would need to inspect and probably replace brakes when fixing seals, thus admitting they are unsafe.
