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.

problem #2

Almera 1.4L

  • Manual transmission
  • 35,000 miles


It's a very common problem with the Nissan Almera. Nissan refuse to admit there is a problem although there are countless people complaining of the same problem along with so many other faults.I have reported this problem to watchdog and would strongly advise other people to do the same.Maybe then something will finally be done.Why should these big name manufacturers be aloud to get away with obvious faults with there products! I've put $2,631 into the repairs.

Many people reported the faulty Timing Chain which stretches on Nissan Almeras but Nissan are refusing to issue a recall.

I spoke to Customer Services in the UK and they said no one reported this problem. I am sure they say that to all the people who report this common fault.
