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.

we bought this car last year< i start noticing some hesitating, took to nissan dealer in council bluffs iowa one morning after work. spent 120.00 for analyst and they found nothing. then last month it got worse went to a shop well reputation from work< in Bellevue nebraska> they checked twice different days and found nothing. went to aamco transmission no codes showed up. we love the car but it is frustrating with the jerkins< no "check engine" light comes on and the rpm or speedometer looks fine when its happening. and the cruise will disenage when a slight jerks starts.
