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.

Happened in the driveway, fortunately. When the clutch pedal was depressed, it stayed down, and in gear. It was difficult to force the car out of gear. I was then able to manually lift the pedal, and pump it softly to make it stay up. This has not happened since. It is a hydraulic clutch' no leaks, and clutch replaced 2 years ago. The car has been well maintained with only 55K miles on it. Looking on the internet I see this is a common problem, and very unsafe if you are driving and can't get it out of gear.

The car at 28,241 needed a drive belt, new clutch and flywheel. Keep up with all required maintenance and know how to drive cars with clutches (35 years). Geico sent representative to inspect the car and noted that it was not the normal wear and tear for this car and agree to repair it. This was after I call Nissan regional Consumer Affairs office and they offer to do nothing. Kristen found out that my insurance company took care the repairs and only offered to see the invoice after I suggested they paid the deductibles. So far no answer. An investigation should be done on the problems of listed above. Next, airbag was listed.

I have a 2004 350Z coupe I bought it brand new in Sept.2003 assortment of problems that the dealer is unable to fix: 1. loud clutch chatter while car is idling and also when accelerating & decelerating in 1st & 2nd gear. 2. transmission clank when shifting gears feels like the tyranny is loose. 3. when car is idling the engine appears to be misfiring and engine is knocking. I have been having these problems ever since I purchased the car and 6000 miles later still not fixed.
