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 #4

Altima GXE

  • 55,000 miles


I experience vigorous vibrations on the steering, cabin, passenger side seat, more-or-less the entire vehicle. The vibrations are experienced when the vehicle is in drive mode (D gear), stopped and the brake pedal is engaged. If the vehicle is in neutral then the vibrations are not experienced at all.

I am doing a research before I visit a service station/dealer and hopefully getting an idea as to how much it would cost me to fix this problem.

Altima Limited

The only time it shakes is when I am idling at a stop light in drive. if i put the car in neutral it doesnt do it as bad and if i turn on my ac it doesnt hardly do it at all. but why do i want to drive around with my ac on all the time and waste more gas? I dont trust mechanics for sh*t so i wont take it to one to get ripped off. Help me!
