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.

A rattling noise is apparent from the rear of the vehicle, especially when going over bumps. My mechanic indicated the read stabilizer bar has a tsb that an improper sealer or brushing was used when the car was made, however I now have 57,000 miles on the car that is 3.5 years old, I.e. out of warranty therefore I am responsible for a manufacture defect.

I own a 2001 Nissan Altima, bought brand new with 35,300 miles on it. Naturally the warranty is about to expire and I am concerned because the rear bushings and stabilizer bars have had to be replaced twice already. Is this a safety concern" is this a common problem? is there a recall? what are my rights once my warranty expires"

Left rear of vehicle started making a crunching/rattling noise over even the slightest bump. Dealership determined it to be noisey swaybar link. This happened because bushing pushed out apparently. They had to install a washer on swat bar bushings retainer. Not sure if this could have been a potential safety hazard where I could of lost control of vehicle. I found this bad because car is new and only 2 months old and I drive all highway interstate miles. No side/off roads with major bumps to knock this out. Hopefully prob won't happen again.it is a concern since veh is new and there was no extremely rough driving done with vehicle.
