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.

problem #2

  • 56,000 miles
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).

  • Automatic transmission

The contact owns a 2006 Nissan Frontier. The contact stated that the dealer was unable to perform a front end alignment. The vehicle is not equipped from the factory with the necessary adjustment bolts and cams. They have to be purchased at the dealer. The owner feels these parts should be included with the vehicle. The vehicle is out of alignment causing the tires to wear unevenly. The failure mileage was approximately 56,000. Updated10/28/10 updated 11/01/10
