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.

2004 Nissan 350Z Owner Comments

problem #1

I was involved in a near fatal auto accident, which Nissan didn't report to the death and injury reports done every quarter per annual year. The accident almost left me paralyzed and I broke over 6 bones in various body part locations due to the car not living up to the "safety" features the maker boasted to have which falsely lead me to buy the car and nearly killed me during an accident, at no fault of mine. The accident was on 1-18-2006, the vehicle a total loss, and occurred in Arizona on interstate 51 in phoenix AZ. I was rear ended, while sitting in traffic pile-up during rush hour traffic. The other driver was estimated to be driving upon impact at 43 mph. I had my sealtbelt on, which broke my collarbone, and a rib. I also ruptured a silicone breast implant from the force of the car into the steering wheel. The air bags didn't deploy, the leg and feet compartment for the driver area caused one foot I had on the brake, to break the sessamoid bone; the rt knee was thrown into the steering column and I broke my patella and tore my meniscus. Both required surgery, both on opposite legs. I required surgery for the ruptured implant. My neck was fractured and the blow and whiplash from the inadequate head restraint caused vertigo for nearly 3 months. I suffered brain bruising and swelling from hitting my head against the headrest after being thrust forward without an airbag to cushion the jolting of the neck and spine. My thoracic spine was fractured, and remains that way since I've opted not to have surgery. The lumbar spine has a ruptured disk and developed a mass from the impact blunt force trauma that developed from the other drivers car hitting my rear end of the car and the seat thrusting all the contents of the vehicles structure into the seat behind where I sat. I had surgery on the removal of the mass and the lumbar spine repair 3 times. My life was completely destroyed as a result of the false misleading claims the Nissan manufacturer and dealer claimed.
