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.

The 2005 Nissan Titan truck I owned was being driven and caught on fire. The vehicle was a total loss. The insurance paid off the loan. Nissan claimed no responsibility and did not offer me any compensation.

problem #1

Titan 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

On 03/27/2006 driving to work in my 2005 Nissan Titan [xxx] pickup accelerated on its on. I was stopped at a stop light merging in to traffic when it accelerated forward by it self and with my foot on the brake. When this accrued I tried to put it in to neutral, still nothing happen, even with both of my feet barring down on the brake the tires where burning rubber and I was still moving slowly forward. Finally I turned the ignition off and it shut down, I waited a few moments and tried to start the engine again. At this time it did it again and turn the engine off again, waited a few more minutes and tried again, at this time it started correctly and I drove it directly to kraft Nissan dealership for there service department. Kraft Nissan took the afternoon to look over the truck, at around 3:01 pm the service writer called and said that they could not duplicate the problem and my truck is ready to be picked up. I said that the problem is real and that they need to find it, they said if problem can't be seen they can't fix it. I talk with the service manager and then called Nissan and was basically told the same thing. The service manager said to drive the vehicle and if the problem happens again they can try to solve at that time. Also was told that my foot could have been on the brake and gas pedal at the same time, told him that would have been impossible because both of my feet where pressing the brake pedal to the floor board to stop the truck.
