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.

Wheels on Nissan 350Z that I purchased are cracking at all the spokes, Nissan has a service bulletin on the chroming process. Dealer sold me car without telling me about the problem. And my warranty wont cover it they said go to the dealer. Power niacin of chandler Arizona is where I purchased the vehicle. My question is.... if a dealer has a vehicle that they are selling and it has a service bulletin on it about the wheels, shouldn't they replace the wheels before selling the car to someone ?, when my left rear wheel separated from all the spokes I was traveling West bound on the I-10 around buckeye AZ, the speed limit is 75 mph there. If I did not catch this right away I would have lost that rim and the damage could have possibly cost me my life.

problem #1

350Z 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 2,400 miles
While driving 65 mph, the consumer noticed a yellow flash indicator light reading slip with cause unknown. The consumer released the throttle pedal and the speed control was not engaged. The vehicle continued to travel at 65 mph. The consumer applied the brakes, but the vehicle still continued at the same rate of speed, burning the brakes when the pedal was applied. Consumer depressed the clutch, but the RPM idled high. All of a sudden the problem disappeared. The dealership found that during installation of the wheels, the chrome plating of the front and rear wheel were mistakenly switched. The tech also stated that this could have been the reason for the malfunction and that the traction control system went into "fail safe mode" because it detected a size difference in the wheels. (pins where also missing)
