Could someone explain here how you approach the dealer for TSBs and Recalls? For those who have bought their Frontier from a Nissan dealer, other dealer, and private-party? Thanks!

TSBS are for trouble shooting purposes only, not an official recall, but if there is a TSB they will most likely repair it at no charge under warranty. A recall usually is accompanied by a letter from the Manufacturer and you just presented at the dealer and they do the rest.

Ok, so after some light internet search, the official date of the recall begins tomorrow on March 22nd, 2010. Would you still get a letter if you did not purchase the vehicle from a Nissan dealer?
