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.

Altima S 2.5L

Since I bought the car in 2003, I have problems of all type. One time the car was in dealer for service 45 days. This time they took the engine to a machine shop. I can't tell all the list of problems out, won't have space to detail all. The dealer didn't do anything. Now when I'm almost my finishing to paid the account of the car. When I'm driving, it shuts off in the middle of the road. It takes several minutes to start engine again, and then shutoff again rapidly. Appears the Service Engine Light with the same diagnose, Crankshaft position sensor. Approximately in 4 month has been changed two times and now the SES is on again. I'm really tired of this car and all the problems it has cause. I've contract a lawyer and a automotive technician here in PR, at the beginning when star the problems, and they didn't do anything. The dealer wash his hand with this "lemon car".
