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

Altima Limited 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 104,273 miles


I'm an Ase Master Tech with over 35 yrs exp. and the 2.4 Nissan intake leaks are very common and an expensive fix which mostly is labor. its definitely a problem Nissan should have a recall on. most time the symptoms include surging at idle, missing on one or more cylinders, lack of power, lean codes and dying at idle in gear.

Altima GXE 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 107,374 miles

On the highway when i'm driving at around 50 mph the car gets up to 4000 rpm and doesn't shake from that, even if i let off the gas, really annoying, and definitely bad for the car.
