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.

The contact owns a 2004 Nissan Altima. The contact stated that a safety recall repair was performed on the vehicle prior to receiving the safety recall notice. The manufacturer will not reimburse the contact. Before the repairs were made the cruise control would automatically deactivate. The contact stated that the engine hesitated and stalled when driving 70 mph. The engine indicator light illuminated intermittently. The contact would attempt to reset the failure, but after 10-15 minutes it would duplicate. The contact waited three to four days to bring the vehicle to the dealer. The current and failure mileages were 61,947.
