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.

Prior to leaving for a trip I stoped by the dealership that I bought the truck from informed me that the exhaust was broken due to rust I was also told that there was no issue with driving it to nc from ct on the way back from nc the trailer lights failed and I started receiving slip ABS brake and 4WD lights on my dash. I return the truck to the dealership and was told that the exhaust had melted the wiring harness where it had broke/rusted. I spoke to another dealership and was told this was a common issue where the wiring harness would melt when the exhaust brakes/rusts... I was also told that they had seen some where the whole tail lamp had melted.

Titan 8-cyl

  • 41,795 miles
On 7/12/07 Nissan had to replace both exhaust manifolds on the truck with 41,795 miles on it. These were covered under warranty and now again at 106,000 miles both exhaust manifolds are again cracked. I was told by the dealer that these manifolds only last 50-60,000 miles before they fail and that they are replacing th *ttem on all the trucks. I called Nissan and they are telling me they are not going to do anything about it. If I go to Titan talk website there are several people complaining about the same issue. Seems like a faulty part that they should have to take care of.
