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 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles
During the most recent oil change, I was directed by the technician to the back side of the rear wheels, both sides. From this vantage point, you can easily see that lubrication from the rear axle is leaking onto the rear brake rotor assembly via the axle end seals. I immediatley contacted nissanusa and have been attempting to get answers from them as to what, if anything they will do to rectify this condition. My extended service plan has recently expired. According to internet forums for Nissan Titans, there have been numerous problems with this and it appears to be a safety hazard. Nissanusa continues to give me the run around by avoiding any dialogue.

Titan 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles
During a recent oil change, the technician pointed out the axle end seals were leaking onto the rear brake rotor assembly on my SE king cab. This reduces the brake's ability to stop. I currently have 81,000 miles on this 2005 model. My extended warranty ran out at 75,000 miles just about 6 weeks ago and this problem was probably happening during the warranty but I didn't notice it as I change my own oil myself most of the time. After looking over the internet, I have found that this is a common problem among the Titans. Nissan should address this problem as they did the brake problem.

We own a Titan and are satisfied but had some issues as can be expected with a newly designed vehicle. Each has been taken care of under warranty from our dealer alan jay of sebring Florida, a very professional operation I might add. The one most recent of concern caused brake interruption and when I inspected the brake system one of the rear brakes appeared to be leaking, which I suspected that to be the problem. The dealer determined that it was a rear axle seal and replaced both the seal and the bearing which had become damaged. After checking the internet I have found this to be a quite common problem that has been overlooked. We use this vehicle daily for business and already have 44,000 miles on it and it is not yet two years old. My concern is my warranty will run out with exceeded miles brfore the time limit and the other axle can have the same problem. Why did they only change one? I would like the other side changed as they are identical in design. Please respond to my request, this can be dangerous situation.
