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.

After many, many hours of research online to find a recall on the notorious rear end axle problem with the 2004, 2005, and some 2006 Nissan Titan's there is literally thousands of people with the same problem I am having and Nissan has yet to put a recall out due to the poor design of their rear ends in these pick-ups. The problem is the rear axle seals going bad. The problem starts at the top of the rear end with the ventilation system. The ventilation system allows moisture and water to enter the rear end assembly which causes the axle seals to leak which then in turns gear oil leaking all over the rear brakes, which in turn leaks on to the highway. The first set of seals cost me almost $1,200 I am on my 3rd set of seals, and they are leaking again. I have owned the truck for 3 years and the vehicle has 136, xxx on it. The first set of seals went at under 20,000 miles. This is a serious problem due to the fact of the rear end gear oil leaking onto the rear brakes and our highways. There needs to be something done about a recall on these rear ends of these vehicles, before someone's life is taken unexpectedly.

I was alerted that my 2006 Nissan Titan needed to have the front differential replaced as there was "looseness" and fluid leaking. I was told that this was not repairable and needed to be replaced. Failure to do so could cause the front differential to lock up, causing possible sudden stopping and possible loss of control.

Steering gear shifter is stuck on "D" drive and does not shift to lower gears. I bought the truck at the end of 2006 brand new. About two years later, the shifter did not work anymore. I was told that they would have to replace the whole shifter part which is very expensive to fix. Thanks....updated 01/04/2016

On 05/22/2015, traveling on interstate highway at or near posted speed in mild sunny weather. The truck just shut off in lane of traffic. There was no hesitation, noise, alarm, warning lights just shut down. There was no power steering or power brakes. Pulled vehicle over to rh shoulder and tried to restart it with out success.on 05/18/2015, I had the truck serviced and inspected at a Nissan dealership in anticipation of this road trip. The truck passed dealer inspection. I had the truck towed to a Nissan dealer service center and after several days the dealer told me the ECM had failed and shorted out the ignition switch. The repair bill was a little over $1400. I am not objecting to the cost of repair....I am concerned about the truck just stopping on the highway without warning. If this breakdown would have happened in the middle or driving lanes of a nearby freeway, or on a steep incline with turns the results may have been very bad. The dealership said the short and failure of the ECM were a result of a leak in the exhaust system (same one that passed inspection) and heat shorted the wiring harness. I feel the wiring harness may be too close to the heat of the exhaust system and could have been isolated as not to cause failure. Updated 8/31/15

While traveling at 80 mph I felt an odd shake on my Titan. I exited the freeway and got out of the vehicle. The rear driver side was smoking. I noticed gear oil leaking out all over the brakes and tire. I ended up needing to replace the axle, seal, bearing, backing plate and ABS sensor. $1300 and 3 days later it is back in the shop. Leaking gear oil from the same place. Waiting to hear from mechanic what I need to do next.

Rear end axle seals are leaking, after looking into this and several hours I found I could be caused from the axle vent not working properly, this causes the rear seals to be pushed out and fluid to leak onto the brakes, seems to be a huge problem and safety concern, I was pulling a small trailer at the time and nearly avoided a car that pulled out in front of me.

While driving at 45 mph transmission drops out of gear and truck engine nearly red lines. Was unable to get completely off the road. After sitting for a few minutes was able to move the truck a few feet to get completely out of traffic. Had vehicle towed to Nissan dealer where they informed me that I had an intermix of coolant and transmission fluid. They stated that this was a common problem that they see and that Nissan extended the warranty to 80,000 miles but I am not covered. They quoted me $8700 to repair. Spoke to a few transmission shops and they all indicated that they encourage their Nissan clients to bypass the internal tranny cooler in the radiator with an external on when they reach 80,000 miles. They said the cost to do this is less than $300. Nissan knows of this and even lost a class action suit but has never informed anyone. For a $300 fix I am now out a truck and or $9000!!!! way to go Nissan!!
