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.

Both rear axle seals are leaking on my 2004 Nissan Titan. The drivers side was replaced once already. When the seals leak the gear oil spreads onto the brake backing and interior of the wheel causing potential brake problems.

I have a 2004 Nissan Titan with a dana rear axle. I was notified by a Nissan dealer that the axle seal on the drivers side was leaking and needed to be replaced. The axle fluid was draining down the rear brake which could significantly reduce braking performance and result in an unsafe driving situation.

Rear differential failure. Rear differential needed total replacement. Dealer inspection noted that if vehicle was driven any further a total lock up or inability to be driven would occur. Appears to be a long list of rear axel/differential failures with this vehicle. Dealer noted it also appears to be a major problem that has occurred not just on high mileage vehicles. Vehicle requires total replacement of rear axel. The vehicle showed no signs of failure. The gears in the differential break apart.

My 2004 Nissan Titan kc SE 4X4 has had rearend problems 3 months after I purchased my truck. I have had axle seals replaced, differential issues, and now for the 3rd time, the dealership has my truck over 4th of July weekend! the spider gears literally fell apart inside my differential. My warranty has expired and I have only 85,000 miles on it! this is something that shouldn't break! I do not tow, I rarely use 4-wheel drive! I heard a thumping noise coming from my rearend, so while getting another recall issue resolved had the dealership take a look....$3,500 worth of work! hudson Nissan has been great through my ownership! they do all of my Titan's maintenance, and they are the best! however, Nissan needs to fix this issue....my truck is nearly paid off and to fix this is more than half what I owe left on the truck!

I have an 04 Nissan Titan purchased 05 with 86,000 miles on it. The rear end started jerking around and causing the vehicle to be rendered useless during Transport. The rear differential seals started to leak and within a week I herd a faint noise. The very next day while driving the vehicle was rendered inoperable.

I own a 2004 Nissan Titan le 2 wheel drive with 74,600 miles. I found that I had a left rear axle seal leaking. Took it to dealer to get it fix and was told that the right side should be replaced also but at $600 a crack to replace one side I could only afford to do the bad one. After researching the internet about other owners of Titans having the same problems with their rear axle seals prematurely failing with low mileage I think niacin needs to look into this problem. It a sham that they charge you $500 to $600 to have these replaced when you can buy the bearings off the internet for $75....
