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.

Titan 8-cyl

  • 47,000 miles
My '05 Titan 4X4 xe has had two rear axle seal failures in the past 20K miles. The first one occurred at 47K miles and was covered under warranty, now at 67K miles the same seal has failed again and now I have to pay out of my own pocket. The fact that oil gets all over the breaks should be reason enough to recall this item and get a permanent fix put in place.
