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

Radiator failure at 45,000 mile check (Oct. 3, 2006) mechanic report: Leaking and needs to be replaced. Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Altima 2.5L, vehicle purchased: October, 2003 as of today (Oct. 4, 2006) the radiator has not been replaced. Under normal operating conditions, with no accidents, the radiator should not fail at such a low mileage. I have reason to believe a similar failure is occurring on my wife's car (40,000 miles), purchased the same month. Nissan needs to do a recall, and pay for this replacement.
