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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: Here's a disturbing trend for the 2002 Nissan Altima: the engine starts burning oil like crazy, the catalytic converter goes bad, the head gasket blows and eventually the entire engine needs replacement. Sound familiar? Like a script from a horror film, these Altimas seem doomed to fail around 95k miles.

Altima S 2.5L

So, interesting!

I have exactly, but exactly the same problem as the previous poster:

When using automatic window switch, window goes all the way up to a closed position, and then immediately comes back down again 3 inches. Only way to close window completely is to manually nudge the switch until window shuts or to hold the window switch until you hear a very quiet click.

How crazy is that? This happened after my driver's window simply fell out and down into the door. The fix to glue the window back on, etc. did then this to my Altima.

I have lots of other issues with this car. Not a quality buy.
