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.

Tires are cupping/feathering and will not be acknowledged by Nissan North America. I believe this will provide for a situation that can be hazardous. The solution provided by Nissan is to have the tires taken off the rim and rotated, as well as perform an alignment. The problem continues to persist even after this action was taken.

350Z 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 7,000 miles
My 350Z had a terrible growl noise and vibrations coming from the front when braking. Tires were very feathered on the inside of the front two tires. Filed a complaint with nna and they had the dealer take the tires off the rims and swap the front tires. I don't think they fixed the issue just delayed the inevitable.

problem #1

Feb 212003

350Z 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 8,696 miles
The car has terrible feathering on the inside edges of the front tires. Problem started after 7,500 miles. Contact patches on the inside tire tread are wearing unevenly. I had the car aligned by Nissan on 2-21-03 and the problem has gotten worse. This really scares me and could lead to unsafe driving due to poor design and uneven tread on the tires. The car is a Nissan 350Z. Received in August 2002.
