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.

I have a 2005 Nissan Titan pickup. While approaching a red light at 30 mph I stepped on my brake to slow the vehicle. I heard a loud clunk, my brakes became mushy, there was a clicking sound, and my brake warning light came on. By pressing down hard on the brake pedal I was able to slow to a stop. I eventually made my way into a parking lot. I stopped the vehicle, checked the brake fluid and it was fine. When I restarted the vehicle the red light was off and the vehicle operated normally. It is now at the dealership where it is undergoing diagnostics. Brakes are the most important safety feature in a vehicle. They cannot spontaneously fail. This has been a growing problem on Nissan Titans and armadas and should be investigated. Thank you.

2005 Nissan Titan with a host of serious issues, of course there was the brake problem, radio wouldn't shut off and the air conditioning was weak. Then the tires were bald at 25K the latest problem is a rattling of the engine valves, took it the dealer and the acknowledged the noise but said there was nothing they could do until it tripped a warning light.

I have a 2005 Nissan Titan. Recently, the brakes failed on the vehicle and I was unable to stop. I had the vehicle towed to the local Nissan dealership. I was called two days later and was told that there is no problem with the brakes and that there was nothing more they could do for me because they cannot recreate the problem and the vehicle computer did not record any fault codes. I've asked them to tow the vehicle to another dealership for a second opinion and they refuse to do it. I've been told that its my responsibility and that if the brakes fail again, to bring it back into the dealership. I've called Nissan directly and they are not offering any help, they stand behind what the dealership has told me. In my opinion, nobody should get behind the wheel of this vehicle. It now seems like I have no choice but to drive the vehicle until it happens again.

I had a heavy pulsating of the steering column and brake pedal during routine braking I informed my dealer of this at 8500 miles and was informed this is normal. At 9,000 miles I was insistent that they look at my truck and they had to replace the front brake rotors, pads, torque member, replaced rear brake pads and machine the rear rotors, I was informed that this would need to be done about every 6,000 to 9,000 miles because the braking system is too small for a truck this size.

2005 Nissan Titan le 5.6 4/4 king cab VIN# 1N6aao6B55N500477; I took my truck to the dealer 10/06/05 to replace a cooling fan that they ordered 3 weeks ago and check my brakes. The brake pedal goes to the floor when you are stopped or coming to a stop. You have to pump it up to bring it back up. They installed the fan and told me there is nothing wrong with the brakes as some of the other models do the same thing. The brake cylinder fluid was full. It scares me to drive with the pedal going to the floor. The fluid has to be going somewhere maybe bypassing the seals as this is a closed system. I had to call customer service to have the fan replaced and they said there were very few replacement parts available for these trucks(3wks for a fan). I need help as I don't want to kill someone or myself. Nissan does not care.

Front brake shudder - less than 4000 miles - reviewed many complaints on NHTSA site of exact same problem - will contact dealer and play the game that everyone else seems to have to play - constant trips to dealer for repair/replacement of rotor. Would save serious grief on all parties if recall was simply issued and situation fixed by replacing equipment that works.

2005 Titan developed problems with the brakes. While braking the steering wheel would shake. The dealer explained that this was due to the way the rotors dispersed heat which caused them to warp.

I purchased my brand new Nissan Titan June 16th 2005 my husband and I decided to take our family own a road trip to Texas for the 4th of July. 2 weeks after I returned I had about 5,000 miles on the truck and notice that my steering wheel was vibrating as I stopped on my brakes, I called service department and they said that this is a common problem bring it in and we will fix it, so I asked what was the common problem and she said the rotors and brake pads burn out and that last month they just received the new component for this problem. Now my problem have with Nissan Corp. Is that I was own the road with my 2 children and husband sounds scary to me, if they new that this was a problem why not do a national recall or even call the customers who just purchased a new truck within that month. But no Nissan is trying to cover there butts and not put it out to the public but I tell you one thing Nissan Corp. Is looking for a big fat legal matters with the customers.
