ACTION: Denial of Petition for a Defect Investigation. AGENCY: This notice describes the reasons for denying a petition (DP12– 004) submitted to NHTSA under 49 U.S.C. 30162, requesting that the agency conduct ‘‘a defect investigation into MY 2005–2010 Nissan Pathfinder, Frontier, and Xterra vehicles [the subject vehicles] for automatic transmission failures related to failed transmission coolers.’’ SUMMARY: Bob Young, Office of Defects Investigation (ODI), NHTSA; 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., Washington, DC 20590. Telephone: 202–366–4806. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In support of his petition, received on February 29, 2012, Mr. Mathew Oliver, Director of Operations for the North Carolina Consumers Council, Inc. (NCCC); alleged the following: (1) ‘‘During the past six months, five owners of 2005 Xterra vehicles, and one owner of a 2006 Frontier vehicle, reported that they experienced sudden jerking of their vehicle(s) at highway speeds. They report, in all instances, that dealers diagnosed the problem as a failed transmission fluid cooler located in the radiator that allowed coolant to mix with, and contaminate, the automatic transmission fluid resulting in damaged internal transmission FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00103 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 75907 components and a damaged internal transmission computer. The complaints report no warning signs leading up to or just prior to the failures’’; (2) ‘‘NCCC has learned from Web site searches, and through the NHTSA Web site, of many other similar complaints in the subject vehicles. Web site data and NHTSA reports usually [report] the same symptoms and lack of warning. Numerous complaints on the NHTSA Web site note repeat oil [sic] cooler and transmission failures’’; (3) Nissan extended its warranty coverage of subject vehicles’ radiator/ transmission fluid coolers from 3yrs/ 36,000 miles to 8yrs/80,000 miles and that this coverage applied only to the radiator/cooler but not to transmissions that may have been damaged as a consequence of cooler failures; (4) Nissan extended its warranty coverage of subject vehicles’ radiator/ transmission fluid coolers from 3yrs/ 36,000 miles to 8yrs/80,000 miles and that this coverage applied only to the radiator/cooler but not to transmissions that may have been damaged as a consequence of cooler failures. Additionally, Nissan failed to conduct inspections that may have revealed a cooler failure was imminent thus helping consumers avoid a catastrophic transmission failure; and (5) A class action lawsuit was filed in 2010 on behalf of clients relating to this alleged defect. Mr. Oliver concluded his petition by stating, ‘‘through our limited investigation into the matter, all of the vehicles experiencing these [transmission] failures are within the 8 year period specified by the extended warranty but are often beyond the 80,000 mile limit. It also appears that the number of reported defects is increasing, which is concerning to say the least. Due to the nature of the reported defect, the severity of the reported failures, the repetitive nature of the failures and the limited or missing failure warning signs, we believe that an investigation is warranted.’’ NHTSA has reviewed the material provided by the petitioner and other pertinent data. The results of this review and our analysis of the petition’s merit is set forth in the DP12–004 Petition Analysis Report, published in its entirety as an appendix to this notice. For the reasons presented in the petition analysis report, there is no reasonable possibility that an order concerning the notification and remedy of a safety-related defect would be issued as a result of granting Mr. Oliver’s petition. Therefore, in view of the need to allocate and prioritize NHTSA’s limited resources to best E:\FR\FM\01NON1.SGM 01NON1
