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.

  • 43,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Nissan Frontier. The contact stated that after he filled the vehicle with gasoline, the fuel level indicator would only read half a tank of gasoline. The check engine light also illuminated on the instrument panel and the vehicle was taken to the dealer. The dealer was able to diagnose the vehicle with a defective fuel level sender circuit (code P0426) which was described in NHTSA campaign id number 06V092000 (fuel system, gasoline: Storage: Tank assembly: Filler pipe and cap) but his VIN was not included in the recall. The dealer advised the repairs were the owners responsibility. The failure mileage was approximately 43,000 and the current mileage was 43,136.
