Notes: Radiators are still cracking, leaking coolant and destroying transmissions. Which is a shame when you consider that otherwise, this would be a great small pickup truck.

Refer to ODI confirmation number 103268. The summary was completely entered in a false manner. My actual complaint was that there were no camper adjustment devices installed on the original vehicle, not that they had become defective. They were never there!!! I do not appreciate being blown off nor should I be mis-quoted, no that is not harsh enough, my complaint was completely fabricated. I tried to contact the ODI office using the phone number provided on the NHTSA website "contact ODI (888) 327-4236 tty: (800) 424-9153" but this number told they could contact the ODI office or give me a phone number, so here I sit typing due to your original [xxx] in entering this complaint. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

I purchased a 2006 Nissan Frontier SE P/U in December 2006. The problem is that the brake pedal seems to have little resistance, brake pedal and accelerator in a position to press both at the same time. Dealer states that there is not a fix for this issue. Nissan has redesigned the system for 2007 to fix this problem. However they refuse to correct this potential safety issue for 2006.
