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.

2005 Nissan Titan Owner Comments

Tail pipe fell off while driving on the interstate 2 weeks after Nissan performed their 27 point inspection, which supposedly included checking the muffler, exhaust pipes and mountings. A second Nissan dealership (out of town) informed us that this was a common occurrence and was actually talking to another Nissan Titan owner that had the exact same thing happen. The out of town dealership mechanic explained to me that the clamps they use to hold the tail pipe on just behind the muffler, rust off"? so why do they use them??? upon returning home we called the Nissan dealership that performed the 27 point inspection (???") he skirted the issue that the box for the "muffler, exhaust pipes and mountings" inspection was checked off as "checked and okay" and informed us that it was a costly fix. Nothing was done to repair the vehicle and no apologies were made for the obvious overlook of a rusty clamp that could have caused an accident had it fallen completely off, especially traveling at high speeds on a busy interstate on labor day weekend, had we not heard the clanging of the pipe banging against the underside of the truck.

The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Titan. While driving at an unknown speed, smoke entered the vehicle through the vents. There were no warning lights illuminated prior to the failure; however, the left turn signal stopped working. The dealer could not determine the cause of the failure, but they repaired the vehicle according to NHTSA campaign id number 08V284000 (equipment:electrical:air conditioner). The dealer stated that the automotive repair center that had previously performed the repair caused the wires to melt around the fan. The auto center representative (who was actually the one filing the complaint) stated that the recall remedy did not actually repair the entire failure. The representative further stated that the fan repair was insufficient and the recall notice never described what could overheat. The current mileage was approximately 28,400 and failure mileage was approximately 28,300.
