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

  • 104,560 miles
Driving on freeway - heard moderate bang from back of truck and then howling began. Dealership diagnosed as rear differential failure and quotes $2000 to replace. Service manager showed me a pile of Titan axles in one service bay awaiting pickup by Nissan. He was amazed that mine lasted as long as it did (104560 miles). Even though this is a well known problem inside the Nissan world, Nissan is not willing to make any concessions or fixing this at a discount.

Rear differential failure. Attempting to cross traffic when rear differential broke internally and had to have vehicle towed from scene (nearly hit by oncoming traffic). This is a known consumer problem, that has been seriously denied by the manufacturer. Several people have complained of having these units replaced several times!! the potential exists to have the rear wheels to become locked up in the event of a failure!!!!!! why has no investigation been opened?? several consumers have gone to aftermarket equipment replacement because of the high failure rate. This problem is happening in 2004-2006 model year vehicles!!!!

As I was leaving my home 8/05/2008 my 2004 Nissan Titan pu came to an complete stop because the rear axle locked up. Dealership stated the rear seals gave out because of corrosion near seal area. The parking brake shoes came apart on both sides and lodged in the wheels causing them to lock up.

Rear differential started to pop and bind while turning under slight throttle. It occurred every time I turned. The dealership replaced the whole rear axle under the power train warranty. I wish it were a real fix and not waiting game until it fails again.

The axle housing seals were leaking on my 2004 Titan so I brought it to a Nissan dealer to have them replaced. The service member informed me that replacing the seals would not correct the problem. They had already tried on numerous other trucks and the new seals continued to leak. Pence Nissan replaced the entire rear end unit as they did with other trucks with the same problem. The replacement unit was not the same that came on the truck. I asked the service member why and he stated the original unit has been problematic.
