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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2009 Nissan Titan Owner Comments

problem #1

I noticed that there was a serious vibration coming from the rear end of my 2007 Nissan Titan. I though that it might be an out of balance tire. I took my truck to Firestone where they noticed my passenger side rear axle output seal was leaking. I went a couple of weeks and decoded to check the fluid level of my rear differential and had to add 1 quart(out of 2 quarts). The drain plug is magnetic and I noticed that there was alot of metal attached to it. About a month later the noise was getting more pronounced and started to shake the whole truck. I decided to take the truck to the Nissan service dept and have it checked out. The service manager called me and I went to see the outcome. He informed me that my driveshaft was binding do to a faulty differential and that they would have to have it replaced under warranty. He then told me that they replace a differential in these trucks at least once a month and that the rear axle seals are prone to going out. After discovering I found out that this has been a problem and that Nissan hasn't done anything about it. The dealer told me that they would call when the differential came in.
