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

problem #2

(reported on)

Altima 2.5

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,950 miles


I am leasing this vehicle and have to turn it in in 5 weeks and the dealer is telling me I have to fix it. I was thinking of leasing another Altima but am re-thinking this! Even the Service guy told me that they go out between 25 and 30 thousand miles. These are the back brakes and normally you change the front brakes several times before even touching the back. I am going to try to work something out with the dealer because I shouldn't have to pay for brakes 5 weeks before I turn it in!
