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.

Rear axle seal leaks in this model it is a known problem yet Nissan still chooses to do nothing about it, it is a huge safety issue it leaks fluid continuously on to the back breaking system so not only could it comprise your whole back end but also your ability to stop your vehicle safely, this has been reported thousands of times to your Agency in the meantime the consumers continue to replace these every 30-40,000 miles just to maintain their safety and others on the road when I feel it is time Nissan address this and take the necessary steps to ensure the braking system in these vehicles is not creating a potential hazard top the driver or others on the road. I took my vehicle in for an oil change yesterday only to find out my seal is leaking again and now my back brakes need to be replaced again because they are no longer safe due to the oil leaking on them again from this seal I drive my children in this vehicle daily to school to games and im thankful that I happened to need an oil change or I would have had no idea it was leaking again or just how unsafe my driving this vehicle could potentially be for my children and myself or anybody that is driving near me when it requires braking to stop.

Hi, I have a 2005 Nissan Titan and the exhaust manifold has cracked in the same spot twice now and it is before the cat so that means its now a gross polluter. The problem is you get it fixed and they put the same part back on that cracks again because they haven't changed the design. There are 3 other Titans in my town and all of us have the same story. Also the sway bar mount on all of ours are broke witch results in very poor handling. I hope it can be recalled before something serious happens. Thank you.

When I stepped on the brakes to start stopping, it didn't feel like it was grabbing and I really had to stand on the pedal to stop before I hit the car in front of me. When I got home, I looked at all my brakes and found that the rear axle seal on the driver's side was leaking. Grease/oil was all over the rear brakes. I have had the seal replaced 3 times now. This is ridiculous and is a safety hazard. The dealer wants $1800 to do it again!! we need a recall.

Front differential started making noise, when mechanics opened it, they said it was impossible to rebuild and I need a brand new assembly. (too much internal damage.) for the mileage this truck has, this part failed way to early. Mechanic said it happened because of its poor design. Now truck has 60,000 miles and rear differential started to leak.

My rear leaf spring shackle snapped punching a hole though the truck bed opening it up like a tuna can while I was on the highway and nearly lost control in a construction zone where there were quite a few people working on the side of the road. Did some investigating and it seems like a pretty common problem for the 04-07 Titans and am wondering why I (or the thousands of others who've had the same problem) were not informed about this from the fine folks at Nissan before people get killed. I would have paid to replace them myself had I just been told.....its not about the is number one in my book especially when I'm hauling around my 18 month old in something that the factory knows has a life threatening defect and doesn't tell anyone!!!!!!!! sincerely pissed!!

This vehicle has more common failures than any I have seen. Both of the rear leaf spring shackles rotted out. The rear axle seals are now leaking. In 6 months I have replaced 2 oxygen sensors and now for the 2nd time I am replacing the evap canister control valve. Nissan seems to ignore all of these issues and has redesigned many of these problem areas in newer models however does not own up to fixing the issues on vehicles that are on the road.
