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.

At 16,000 first axle seal leak. Then at 74000 miles second leak. First was fixed by Nissan and second leak was told could not be fixed, complete rear differential had to be replaced oil getting on brakes and rears that could possibly break easily could be a safety concern. Seems to be a common problem with some Titan trucks. This is the first rear differential I had go in 48 years of driving and attribute this to a bad designed and cost cutting by Nissan.

  • Automatic transmission

Pulled up to stop sign with no previous indication of problem. When I proceeded to turn left, the rear differential started making loud clunking noises and slipped in and out of engagement. I was able to put truck in 4 wheel drive to get it to dealership. The problem has not yet been corrected as Nissan states I need a new rear differential and they are on national back order. They can give me no estimate as to when I will get my vehicle back.
