Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

350Z 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 6,500 miles
Nissan 350Z clutch failure, 2nd time in first year of ownership. After much haggling, Nissan replaced the clutch at 6000 miles and it has just failed again at 13,000 miles. This is my third Nissan, loyal customer. I have driven a manual transmission for 14 years and never replaced a clutch or transmission. This is a product defect that Nissan is reluctant to acknowledge. There are hundreds of similar complaints on the internet.
