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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Upon accelerating, the truck felt like it went into neutral. It now jerks after coasting when adding power, and clicks/thumps very loudly while turning in both directions from the rear, more so when there is power while turning.

2004 Nissan Titan 4WD. At 54,000 miles the rear differential gears blew apart while I was driving. This destroyed the rear differential and caused $3000 worth of repairs. The rear axle seals on both sides were leaking at the time the gears failed. Apparently, this was becoming a common problem/defect with most Nissan Titan, though so far Nissan seems to be ignoring the problem. Although the rear end gear failure did not cause an accident I was told by a mechanic that if the gears failed and lock at highway speeds they could cause the rear wheels to lock which could cause an accident.
