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.

Sound familiar? Like a script from a horror film, these Altimas seem doomed to fail around 95k miles.

The exhausts at the back of the car rusted quite fast. I maintain the car and treat it as my son, and it still acts up and decided to make my life miserable and have to buy a new exhaust system.
