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. Notes: The 2005 Nissan Altima has two fairly significant problems with the floor pan rusting through & motor mounts breaking.

Altima owners report that up to a basketball-size hole develops under the floor mats where the floor pan metal rusts through. Average repair cost is over $1,000.

The broken motor mounts are less of a problem - they break at ~75,000 miles average & it's $400 to fix. Still, motor mounts should not break!

2005 Nissan Altima. Consumer states several problems with vehicle to include brakes, trunk leak, relay switch the consumer stated when he purchased the vehicle, it had been traded two days prior, and the safety inspection had not been performed. The dealer told the consumer, he could keep it over the weekend and bring it back the next business day for the safety inspection so they could repair any problems. When the consumer arrived home with the vehicle, he noticed a cover for the seat belt connector was not attached and there was standing water in the spare tire wheel well. The consumer was informed the trunk problem was fixed. However, water was found in the spare wheel well again. Also, the check engine light illuminated due to a faulty gas relay switch. The consumer stated two weeks later, the brakes started squealing. The consumer stated the vehicle was taken to the dealer to have the rear wheel bearings replaced. However, the warranty company stated the bearings were not covered under warranty. The warranty company stated their denial of coverage was based on the fact, the vehicle was front-wheel drive.
