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.

2005 Nissan Titan Owner Comments

Titan 8-cyl

After a freeze during the night, I went to open the driver side door. The door latch cable snapped the first time I tried it. This now poses a hazard if in the case of an emergency I cannot open the driver's door.

The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Titan. The contact noticed that when it snowed, the door handle froze and the door would not latch and close. The dealer was notified who was aware of the problem but offered no assistance. The manufacturer was informed and the contact was awaiting a response. The vehicle was not repaired. The current and failure mileages were approximately 57,000.

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

In cold temperatures the driver side door on our 2005 Nissan Titan crew cab is extremely difficult to or will not open. When it does open it sometimes will not latch when closed so the door would swing open if the vehicle is operated. If it does latch when closed it is impossible to open from the inside. This is a serious safety issue because it would make it impossible for the driver to exit the vehicle from the left side in case of emergency. This happens anytime the temperature is 30 degrees F or below.

I own a 2005 Nissan Titan crew cab and when the temps drop below freezing the door handles or latches freeze up and you can not shut the door, you have to hold them closed with your hand while driving. There was nothing that I did leading up the the failure other than maybe wash my truck. I was told that there was no recall for this problem and that I would have to pay $500 out of pocket for something that could end up killing a child. I took a friend of mines child to school today and the door opened and when I closed it evidently did not latch because the cable was froze up. Good thing that he was in a car seat and buckled in cause when I turned the corner the door flew open. This is ridiculous and someone needs to step in and do something before someone gets hurt.

2005 Titan king cab driver side door handle sticks open in freezing temperature or a little below. No contact with water for over a week. This keeps the door from closing all together. Quick fix. Must hold closed and lock manually. Once locked, however, one cannot exit vehicle from that side. Possible death trap. Dealer found no problem. Once it got it to the dealer it was 50 degrees outside. Go figure. New door handle assembly on order.

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,500 miles
I own a 2005 Nissan Titan crew cab which has faulty door latch mechanisms. When temperatures become near or below freezing some or all of the door latches fail to operate properly. When it occurs it causes the doors to stay latched, if it occurs on all the doors at once you cannot gain entry to the vehicle. They also malfunction in the opposite, opening but not latching leaving the door able to swing free. I brought this problem to my service manager and they said this is the first time they had heard of the problem. They applied a gross amount of silicone spray to the locking mechanism hoping to resolve the problem. The door has malfunctioned twice since then with the cold temperatures. I have a small child and I feel this is an unacceptable problem that could result in injury.
