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.

I have a 2001 Nissan Altima, that is vibrating a lot when I stop at a traffic light. I came to know it is due to intake manifold gasket problem. So I am requesting a free replacement by Nissan to solve that issue. Tw*

  • Automatic transmission

I own a 2001 Nissan Altima, puchased with approximately 23,000 miles, a documnet was obtained from the dealer stating that the vehicle had not been involved in an accident. The problem is the car was very quiet when I test drove it and for a few weeks after the purchase. The car now has more rattles and squeaks than I can describe. I did take the car in for a squeak on the right side a bushing was replaced on the right door panel, the squesking stopped but now has restarted, the mechanic told me this was normal wear and tear because these parts are made out of plastic. The car has also started pulling to the right, a new set of tires has been installed and it has been realigned twice, the problem still exists and is wearing my tires out. A non mechanical complaint is the paint job, it appears to be very thin and chips and flakes easily and is fading, the car is white.
