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.

I have a 2006 Nissan Titan pickup that has had the rear axle seals replaced two times and had it in for a third time and was told it was residual oil from the previous repair and nsent on my awy wewll it was leaking again and now has to go back for a fourth time in about 3000 miles. The truck has only 28000 miles on it. This leak has the potential to get gear oil all over the rear disc brakes causing poor braking, also if the rear end siezed up from lack of oil it could cause you to go out of control.

The engine accelerates on its own after lifting the accelerator for one to five seconds. This occurs regularly and has caused two vehicle to object accidents. This occurs in traffic, slow speeds, high speeds, forward, reverse, and is easily recreated. Dealer tech could not find anything wrong that would cause this issue.

The ipdm relay in my truck is messed up, it began with having a transmission issue that caused my truck to basically not be able to gain any speed on the highway. I took the truck to the dealership, they said it was the ipdm issue and they would try to fix it. Other Titan owners have had their trucks shut completely off while running down the highway because of the failure of the ipdm, Nissan knows of the issue has no parts to fix the issue, and will not help us out.

Titan 4WD

  • 48,813 miles
I have a 2006 Nissan Titan 4WD. Last year, after a long trip, I took it to get an oil change, and the mechanic told me the rear axel was leaking. This was in July of 2008, and the vehicle had 48,813 miles on it. I got it fixed. Then 11 months later, again after a long trip, the same thing happened. This was in June of 2009, and the vehicle had 63,914 miles on it. I went online to see if anyone else was having this problem, and apparently it is an ongoing problem that is happening to a large number of Nissan Titan owners. Some are reporting that the oil is leaking onto the rear brakes, causing them to fail. I have not noticed this yet, but each time I caught my leak early. I have also read that the 2008 Titan has a new rear axel design that has addressed this issue. Obviously, Nissan is aware of the problem, because they have already addressed the issue in the later models. This is a very dangerous problem, and Nissan should recall the earlier models to rectify the situation.

Right rear axle seal blew out and leaked differential fluid. Differential fluid leaking on rear brake rotors which could cause brake failure, which was a major safety concern to me. At time of failure at 8000 miles no suspension modifications had been done to vehicle. Also, the rear differential oil will slowly leak and cause the rear differential to lose fluid and fail. Nissan replaced spacer axle (43070-7S200), bearing (40210-7S210), and seal (43252-7S200). As this seemed to be a very common problem with the Nissan Titan, Nissan should address this issue and offer a permanent fix so would not be faced with the safety issue in the future.

My dana axle seals started leaking at 35,000 miles. It gets all over the brakes, can cause brake failure. Nissan warranted the problem replaced entire rear axle. Many people with this same truck have the same problem. It almost seems like 90%.
