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.

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • 66,000 miles
Rear axle seal leaked on drivers side at 66,000 miles. Gear oil all over brakes which is a major safety concern. No modifications - truck is full stock. Nissan dealer database reveals this issue happened also at 29,000 miles and entire rfd was replaced under warranty for previous owner. Now happens again at 66,000 miles. I am told there is a tsb for this issue, but since vehicle is out of warranty(6,000 miles ago) that this is my problem. Dealer told me that this problem could very well have been going on without my notice for longer than 6,000 miles. A little research reveals this to be a very common problem with these trucks. Nissan needs to acknowledge that they have a faulty design in the rfd, and they need to step up and issue a recall for this issue due to it being a major safety concern!

I noticed a whining nose from 45 to 70 mph. It got real loud ad 60-65 mph. My Titan is regularly serviced with differential fluid changes, and all maintenance. The truck has 112,000 miles on it. I was just told that they need to replace the rear differential on the truck, at a cost of $2448 plus tax on a vehicle that is very well maintained and taken care of. No excuse for it, and ridiculous.

Titan 8-cyl

  • 85,000 miles
While driving on flat road under normal road conditions I heard a loud thump from the rear of the truck followed by a several more intermittent thumps. The truck still drove, but with the thumping. Upon inspection I discovered that the cross shaft for the spider gear slipped out and got in between the pinion and ring gear causing it to bind. It broke several teeth off of the ring gear, damaged the cross shaft and marred the pinion gear.

I recently had my valve body replaced in my trans, I was driving to san diego on the 5 southbound and when I was merging on to the freeway from an on ramp and as I applied the gas pedal the truck did not move. I looked under at the drive shaft, while in gear the truck's drive shaft was spinning and making a screeching noise.
