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 #3

Altima 2.5S 2.5L

  • Automatic transmission

Three of the four handles have broken under normal use. Seems to me there should be a recall.

2 of the 4 door handles just broke off upon opening of the doors. This is a major defect and Nissan needs to repair these!

Altima SE 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

3 out of the 4 door handles have broken off on my 2004 Nissan Altima. The first happened two years ago, and the other two followed not to long after.

I've seen many other Altima's out there with broken handles. There is no doubt there is a defect with them and they need to issue a recall.

I say we all work together and sign a petition or some kind of document and send to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration agency. They have the power to force them to issue a recall.

Who's with me???
