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.

2004 Nissan Altima Owner Comments

Altima 4-cyl

Rusted floor boards in passenger and driver side. In researching this problem, it looks like there was a defect in the design of 2001-2005 Nissan Altima floor boards due to a drainage plug that was not properly sealed. Contacted Nissan North America and have not heard anything back after they said I would get a call back. The rusted out floor pans can become a hazard if not taken care of, but if you don't happen to see them then you will not no they are there. Most of the complaints that I have found; it seems that the floor boards have rusted all they way through to the main cabin. I am afraid that if people never check for this problem, it will progressively rust through and affect your seats and everything that is there. Looks like Nissan North America will not take care of this problem! they don't care!
