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 GLE 2.4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 170,000 miles


I have a Nissan Altima, has been a great car until now it jerks when I put it in drive, jerks when it shifts to 2nd gear, and sometimes just dies at a traffic light, or heck, even when I am driving. I am not sure what it costs to repair, thankfully I have a family of mechanics to rely on for maintenance and repairs, but no one mechanic seems to know what is causing this in my car.

problem #1

Altima GLE 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,800 miles

We wnet to a mechanic to fix a problem with high idle in our Altima. WHen we drove the car home,the idle problem not being repaired but the mechanic doing 357.00 worth of work, the transmission began slipping going from 18-20. we took it to a transmission shop where they flushed the fluid and put in an additive. The problem now is intermittent, being better when the car is warm. However, when going about town doing chores, whenever I leave the car for 10 minutes or more the problem is there again.
