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 #1

Altima GLE Limited 2.4L 4 cyl

Well, now it's almost 1 year later since my last complaint for a major repair on this POS. Yesterday, as I was driving, the Service Engine Soon light came on. Hubby and I took it to the shop last night. The problem: Dead Catalytic converter. Hmmm, could I have really passed inspection on this car in May if the thing was going bad?? It's going to cost $784 this time.

Major problems with this stupid car that was bought brand new are: A/C system Mass Airflow Sensor MIG O2 Sensor cracked radiator (hosed replaced religiously and fluids checked alot-so those were not the reasons) Intake Manifold Gasket

The list doesn't even include all the little things (under $100) that has had to be done to it. To me, that's a lot of stuff to have break in less than 6 years when you are talking high $$ stuff.

Anyway, I'm chalking it up to ANOTHER reason I'll never, ever buy a stupid Nissan again in my life.
