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.

2001 Nissan Altima Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 152008

Altima GXE 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 73,000 miles


I don't know if anyone else who has a concern about this type of problem, but i am trying to find a solution to it.

I am an ASM for Toyota and I own 2 Nissans, Last month I was changing the oil on my wifes car(01 altima) and inspected her car over pretty well. I found that the rear sub frame was badly scaling and rotting away. I know about the recall for 02-05 altimas for sub frame rotting, but this should not be happening with my car.

Well I contacted Nissan directly about this concern, and they said to have it inspected(which i did) and the NE Regional Rep contacted me 2 weeks later. She had told me that the dealer said, "your vehicle has discoloration on the frame", so i guess my frame isn't rotting. If I tap on the the frame, all this discoloration fall off and onto the ground.

I hope other people are having the same problem because if enough of us get together, we might be able to a Nissan put out a recall for sub frames on 01 altimas.
